The introduction of Grandia GD07 and GD08 cases from SilverStone ushers in a new era of home theater computing like never before. For the first time, the power and storage capacity of a server can now be neatly stowed beautifully and quietly in a home theater environment. Completely reengineered to fully utilize all available spaces, the Grandia GD08 can accommodate an incredible amount of drives (up to twelve) and high-end components (graphics cards up to 13.6 inches long) with minimal sacrifices. It is even possible to fit SSI EEB (12” x 13”) extended ATX motherboards in the GD07 despite maintaining an exterior dimension similar to SilverStone’s previous generation full-size HTPC cases.
With a wealth of lessons learned from building the best performing tower cases in the last several years, SilverStone engineers upgraded GD08’s cooling performance tremendously with up to five 120mm fan options. And to make sure owners can easily maintain their cases’ cooling ability over time with the lowest noise possible, custom designed removable filters surround the case for positive pressure to work effectively and quietly.
To complement the tremendous new design, the GD08 is built with the thickest aluminum front panel of any SilverStone case with a styling that pays homage to the most popular HTPC case ever made, the Lascala LC17. For HTPC enthusiasts all over the world, this case is truly a dream come true!

Solid Performance-Target HTPC Chassis Solution02-17-2013
Reviewer: 2nd Day Boxers (1)
Space cannot be spoken of enough, as this case can hold many of the best "C-Form" CPU HSF''s on the market to date, any GPU on the market, and multiple form-factors for motherboards (m-ATX to EATX!) Realistically, if You are using a powerhouse GPU, Your HDD mounting options become more limited. Having said that, even with the largest AMD/nVidia GPU''s currently on the market installed, You can still add 4 3.5" HDD''s and 2 2.5 SSD''s. Impressive. Please note that there are some restrictions as to what You can cram in this chassis. Refer to the specs if You have questions first. Up to 7 fans (5x120mm, 2x80mm), ANY motherboard accepted, ANY GPU accepted, up to 11 HDD''s accepted, full-sized PSU''s accepted, USB3-Ready: all with the SilverStone quality You expect Your money is worth. If You want a monster of a HTPC... This is a home-run of a Chassis.
