SilverStone PS-13 Midi-Tower PC Chassis Review


There’s a good amount of space on the interior, but virtually none of it goes wasted, allowing larger components to fit in this rather compact chassis. Behind the motherboard, there’s a huge CPU cooler mounting cut-out, which should help with your installation process.

There’s a good amount of space in the top for the PSU, which should make it easier to deal with modular cable designs and connectors.

There’s a good amount of clearance for a fairly large CPU cooler, although I would suggest this chassis is best tailored to air cooling vs water.

There is a fan mount in the base, but keep in mind that space could be limited if you have an expansion card that consumes the bottom slot on your motherboard.

Instead of hard drive trays, you’ll find a vertical panel on the side for screwing your drives to, this means the full length of the chassis is available to accommodate longer graphics cards, making their installation a whole lot easier. Just tucked away at the back, you’ll also notice a single pre-installed 120mm fan, but there is room for a second should you need it.

The hard drive mounts are nice and easy to access, just screw your drives to it using the screws included in the box and you’re good to go; it’s basic, but it works.

The same goes for the 5.25″ drive bays, as you simply screw your drives into place.

The rear panel comes away, revealing a few large cutouts. There’s zero space for cable routing here, but the cut outs do allow easier access to the PSU bays and CPU cooler mounting, helping you install your components more easily.

For the front mounted cooling, you can pull away the front panel to access the fan mounts, and you’ll also find a simple clip-in dust filter here. Again, this is pretty basic, but it does the job of getting clean air into the system and that’s no bad thing.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
