There is currently a clear trend towards particularly compact systems with motherboards in the form factors Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX as a basis. Nevertheless, the small calculators should not be able to offer less than their big counterparts in ATX. In order for this to be possible, it is also important to have suitable PC cases, because with them stands and falls, whether potent hardware and many system components can be gathered in a small space.
The housing specialist Silverstonealso offers a very noble, high-quality processed and functionally equipped product range in this segment. At the same time, the design is unfussy and refined, as evidenced by the brushed aluminum exterior trim. Particularly clever are the integrated into the cube carrying handles on the top, which predestine the CS01B-HS almost for a LAN housing.
Another great feature of this cube case is the cooling of the hardware, which makes use of the chimney effect, in which a pre-installed 120 mm fan (1200 rpm, 19.7 dB (A)) cools the air sucks down and then exits the top again. This is made possible by the 90 ° rotated design of the CS01, because the motherboardThe mini-ITX form factor is installed on the back side, so that the backpanel of the board is in the housing cover.
In addition to a large mesh area, there are two additional USB 3.0 ports and the PCI panel for a low-profile expansion card .
