Product on Review: Precision Series PS07
Manufacturer and Sponsor: SilverStone
Street Price: £50 inc.VAT (GBP)
The M-ATX form factor has gathered momentum lately with an onslaught of offerings coming to such chipsets as Intel’s Z77. You can’t blame many for opting for the smaller form factor when you consider the wealth of features some motherboards provide. Corresponding to this there has been more demand for M-ATX computer chassis and we turn to SilverStone’s Precision Series today for one such offering.
Released back in April the PS07W – a white variant to the already popular Precision Series PS07, brings an alternative colour configuration to this M-ATX chassis. All-white externals and internals are a popular trend nowadays but can the PS07 deliver on features and price? Let’s find out!
SilverStone on PS07
As the first chassis in the Precision series designed for Micro ATX motherboards, the PS07 has a great balance between size and functionality. It utilizes SilverStone’s vaulted positive pressure design with easily removable filters on both the fans and the power supply to prevent dust buildup. Two front mounted 120mm fans can provide capable cooling for a complete build fully loaded with drives and components. To keep the noise profile low, an independent compartment with isolated intake vent for the power supply was implemented to keep PSU operating at optimal temperature. User-friendly touches such as removable motherboard tray and top lid make installation in such small chassis a breeze. But an all new backside cable routing design further increases PS07’s ergonomics with room for long power supply cables; thus eliminates the need for short cable kits such as SilverStone’s PP05 and allow users to use any power supplies they wish. For those interested in storage flexibility, PS07’s ability to accommodate one 2.5” and six 3.5” hard drives are greatly appreciated as well. Using an elegant front panel combined with aluminum accent makes PS07 at home in any environment with a clean, hidden side intake helping to minimize and direct noise away from users. If there is a need for a relatively small, understated, quiet, and advanced PC, the PS07 is a perfect choice.
