Silverstone Milo Series ML06B-E Mini-ITX Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Silverstone are known around the world, they’re titans in this industry and create a huge range of new products every year. They’ve got some of the best chassis, power supplies, coolers and a whole host of products for the desktop market and their reputation for premium quality is virtually unmatched. Today, we’ll be taking a look at one of their latest SFF chassis, perfect for the workplace, a compact home desktop, and even the HTPC market.
“The ML06-E is an evolution and variation of the premium Mini-ITX HTPC case, the Milo ML06. With external dimension unchanged at 7 liters, the ML06-E’s rearranged internal layout provides a crucial second expansion slot for support of more powerful low-profile discrete graphics card or expansion card that are two slots wide. For users that wish to build with a more robust GPU or tuner card in console/DVR-like form factor to game or for multimedia content recording, the ML06-E is a great starting point.”
The Milo ML06 is super compact but has just enough room to fit all the important hardware you’re likely to need. You’ll find space for a good amount of cooling, at least considering the chassis compact size, as well as room for a few storage drives, slim OOD and more!
In the box, you’ll find the vertical stand feet, which come as four pieces that clip together to make two. Four rubber feet for the bottom of the chassis, some cable ties and a 120mm magnetic dust filter.
Down the left side of the Milo, you’ll find a good amount of ventilation for passive cooling, but you can install 2 x 80mm fans here should you feel the need. There’s also a pair of USB 3.0 ports and HD audio jacks, offering all the usual connectivity you’re likely to require.
The right side is a plain black panel.
The front is really nice, with a brushed black aluminium finish, a small power and reset button and the SilverStone logo stylishly situated in the corner.
Hiding ever so slightly, a slim ODD bay, perfect for multimedia uses.
Around the back, you’ll find an SFX PSU cut-out, the motherboard I/O and some expansion slots. The two main expansion slots are only half width, so you’re unlikely to get any serious gaming hardware in there, but networking hardware and more should do just fine.
On the top, there’s a good amount of ventilation above the motherboard and some more in the corner for the PSU.
The bottom of the chassis is a plain black panel.
