Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The SST-PS05B mid tower chassis is constructed mainly from steel that has been painted inside and out. The front of the chassis is made from black plastic and offers mesh near the bottom to allow for a front intake. Inside the chassis you can house either an m-ATX or ATX motherboard, and with up to any, seven expansion cards, as long as they are less than eleven inches in length. At the front, there is room for four external 5.25" devices, and also room for two 3.5" devices to poke through the bezel. Below that there is a rack that can support up to four 3.5" drives, and this assembly is turned 90° from the top half. In the top of the chassis, near the front, you will find the two USB 2.0 and front panel audio connections.
Cooling, out of the box, is accomplished with only one 120mm fan placed in the rear of the PS05B working as an exhaust. There is room for up to four more fans to be installed, but aside from the aforementioned fan, it is up to you to get those. One can go in the front behind the mesh, one can go in the floor and with the use of a removable top panel there is room for two more 120mm fans that can go in the top without the need for hardware to mount them. Speaking of tool-less assembly, this chassis offers both a device to lock in the expansion cards without screws, all of the bays use tool-less features as well. One last thing worth mentioning, and I don't see this measurement often enough. SilverStone did the math for us and says that any cooler at or less than 160mm should fit inside the PS05B.
The SST-PS05B is already starting to stock shelves, but even so, I was only able to locate it via two e-tailers. While the lack of supply will hurt the final number, with some time, I can see a case like this stocking more shelves very soon. With everything mentioned above included or not included, in the case of the four fans, I did find the SST-PS05B at Newegg for $39.99. Currently the deal can be even sweeter. Newegg is not only offering free shipping at the moment, but there is also a $10 mail in rebate offer going, making the total after a bit of a wait, just under $40. A great price for any ordinary mid tower, but with the specs and features I see listed; it makes this an amazing price.
