Inside the SST-PM01 WA-W

The front of the chassis is screwed on for transit, but after removing the screws, the bezel pulls right off. Behind the steel mesh is a removable dust filter that covers the intake fans, of which, SilverStone ships it with three 140mm blue LED fans here.

The initial look inside shows that SilverStone is moving towards the masses with a chassis we find pleasing. The top section is completely open to take on just about anything you can dream of. The bottom section is closed off with a PSU cover that runs the entire length of the PM01.

There are inset rails that support the front fans, and on these rails are holes for both 120mm and 140mm fans. We also mentioned that water cooling is possible here, but is currently not fully open along the entire face.

For those wanting to use 280mm or 360mm radiators in the front, the top of the PSU cover offers a sliding panel at the front. This way you can get a large fat radiator hanging in the front as well.

The main cover is removed by pulling it upwards, and it exposes access to the top fan locations via the large center hole. The white plastic support ring is also removable, but requires screws, and has some wiring to deal with.

That wiring you will have connected is to power the large blue LEDs on either side of the top frame. If you recall the vent looking things at the top of the chassis, well that void is backlit with these.

The main compartment offers a large access hole, 16 places to tie up wiring, seven wire management holes, and off to the right, you can hang 2.5" drives right on the motherboard tray.
