Computex: Silverstone T004 External PCIe Graphics Card Expansion Case
Peter Donnell / 10 years ago
Silverstone are the kings of the compact chassis market, they seen to be able to bend and twist components into some of the slimmest cases on the market and their engineering and ergonomics are second to absolutely no one. Now it seems they’re looking to do something a little different with an external graphics card enclosure that uses Thunderbolt to hook up an external GPU to your system, effectively meaning you could run a GTX Titan on any laptop equipped with Thunderbolt!
While the front panel is finished off with just a Silverstone logo, the side label shows a slight slope in the base unit, giving the case an offset design. There is a large vertical air intake and behind that we can see a cooling fan at the bottom as well as what looks like the PSU fan behind and above that.
Slim case or not, Silverstone have sill left plenty of breathing room in here and you can see that graphics card runs almost the full length of the chassis, with an airflow channel right through the middle of the case. It also looks like the Silverstone logo doubles as the power switch, something we have seen on more Silverstone products recently.
Aluminium construction, room for a large GPU, an SFX PSU and a small overall footprint, this system is ideal for those with limited space, or people would just want something that looks cool next to their laptop, it’s just an added bonus that it can provide your Thunderbolt system with some extra performance!
