SilverStone Primera PM01 ATX Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Case Build & Finished Product




Since the PM01 comes with no optical bays, nothing detracts from all of that sleek mesh and the thick white frame around it. This also means that the inside of the chassis is at maximum potential to be filled with cooler ambient air.





Even thought our AIO is a thick radiator version, it would go in the top, and even reached to the front, but we opted for the back since the stock fan adds no light. The video card has plenty of room to the right of it and ton of room for a tube reservoir and more radiators.




The dust filter snapped right in, and the 120mm fan on the H80i GT fits in the center fan mounting grooves. The card lines right up and the screw holes are in place for it, and the same is said for the PSU, as it slides right into alignment.




With so many tie points and no bump in the right side panel, we wired things in smaller groups. The hook and loop holds the PSU lead; the front panel wiring streams down the middle, and there is room at the bottom for excess wiring like the SATA and Molex leads. There is near 15mm of room here, and as we have it wired, there was no issue replacing the side panel.




Ready for power, we stopped to discuss just how stunning this SilverStone chassis is. Odd shaped, yet attractive, a full mesh front, and a great view of everything from the CPU cooler to the SilverStone name on the PSU cover. The sad part is we haven't even lit this chassis up yet.




Once powered up, and the LED switch in the front I/O port is turned on, the SST-PM01 WA-A comes to life. The power button and the HDD activity lights are blue and stay on all the time when the chassis is powered. The switch on top covers the front fans, the side rail lighting just inside the door at the top and bottom, and also illuminates the side lights in the top. The black version does this with red LEDs, but either way; this is one sexy looking chassis.
