SilverStone PS-13 Midi-Tower PC Chassis Review

Complete System

With everything install, the system build looks far cleaner than we would have expected given the virtually nonexistent cable routing options. this is party due to the top mounted PSU, as it keeps a lot of cables up and out of the way, and the hard drive panel does a nice job of hiding any additional excess cables throughout the chassis also.

The Sapphire R9 270X is certainly a large card, but as you can see, we had zero issues installing it in this chassis, with room to spare for a dual GPU configuration should you need one.

The hard drive arrangement works well, and if you look closely, you can see we’ve got a 2.5″ SSD mounted here and it’s not causing any issues for our graphics card setup.

There’s plenty of room around the motherboard too, leaving lots of room for a good size air cooler and additional cooling fans in the rear mounts.

It’s hard to see here, but we’ve got some excess cables sitting in the back of the 5.25″ drive bays. This isn’t ideal, but even with a 5.25″ drive installed, you could easily use a few cable ties to keep them up and out of the way, helping improve the overall airflow within the chassis.

All panels back in place and you can just about make out the CPU cooler and the side of the GPU through the side panel; I quite like being able to see the hardware, while also giving it some extra airflow, although it could be a dust problem if you have a negative air pressure within the chassis.

Overall, a fairly simple yet very easy system build to deploy and the end result looks much smarter than I would have expected.

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!
