Everything I have had the pleasure of using and reviewing from SilverStone up to now has offered everything the specifications and features listed, and more. Even though I have a good idea of what is arriving before it gets here, I am always surprised when I see these products in real life. Not only do they look good, but cases like the Ravens offered a full list of features and unique designs, and because of that they have had the honor of my personal use. For me that is saying a lot. I get quite a bit of hardware, and for my personal use I lack the desire to "work" on my own PC. So, for a product to make it into my personal usage, it had to be impressive to say the least.
Due to every component I have received from them being of top notch quality and performance, you may notice that I always try to get the 1000W SilverStone power supply into these reviewed cases. Reasoning is that the power supply is not only getting a workout in connectivity all the time, as it can go into as many as eight cases a month, so I have come to rely on it, as it has never failed to power up a case yet. The major thing that makes most buyers shy away from SilverStone when browsing for new components is the pricing. SilverStone builds quality parts, and with that, they do typically demand more than their competition. In their defense, they are worth every penny, and have yet to give me reason to start either a support ticket, or a need to RMA anything.
Today things are a little different. We are going to be looking at the SST-PS05 Precision Series mid tower, and this case offers what we have come to love in SilverStone. A feature rich design that offers almost a complete tool-less installation, great air flow potential, and the attention to detail we are used to seeing. The real surprise in this well appointed mid tower is the wallet friendly pricing. That in mind, let's dig in and see what this more budget oriented, SST-PS05B has to offer.
