Silverstone Grandia GD10 HTPC Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
The Silverstone Grandia series is one of the corner stones of the HTPC market; they’ve long been one of the most popular choices for AV enthusiasts who want a PC integrated into their entertainment setup. The Grandia series has always balanced premium build quality, great aesthetics, competitive prices and more; Silverstone look set to continue that trend with the new Grandia GD10 HTPC chassis.
The GD10 features many of the same style points and component capabilities of previous generation chassis from the Grandia series, which is no bad thing. The new model comes equipped with support for most major motherboard types, including SSI-CEB, ATX and Micro-ATX. As you can see from the specifications below, the GD10 comes with support for up to five hard drives, depending on their configuration. The chassis will also handle a range of 80 to 120mm fans; with three 120mm fans pre-installed. 12.2″ graphics cards are also supported, which opens up possibilities for many of the high-end cards that are currently on the market.
Just like every other Silverstone product we see, the packaging is really nicely designed and features the full specifications and a few clear photographs of the product around the sides of the box.
Inside I found a small collection of cable ties, a metal bracket, some rubber washers, a front panel key and all of the usual screws needed to install all major components.
A detailed user guide is included, which explains all of the features and the install process for the GD10.
