Conclusion

SilverStone did an outstanding job with the PS10. It looks like they did a great job incorporating the wide body look and utilizing sound dampening foam while keeping a more modern look. Despite being a mid-tower, it has some great features such as support for SSDs, and support for 360mm graphics cards. It even has support for multiple radiators in the rear and top, and includes space on top to support thicker radiators as well as external support. On top of this, the SilverStone PS10 case has an overall great design and its build quality is superb. Now, there were some minor issues that we need to point out, and hopefully it was just an easy oversight. Even though this is meant to be a budget case, I think the next upgrade that we would like to see is grommets on the cable holes, or at least some form of protection from the edges. The other small issue we saw was the missed rivet during construction on the hard drive cage. Making the hard drive cage modular would be a great upgrade, even for a budget case. This would free up a lot of space for GPU upgrades, water cooling and give a much cleaner look. Many of the ideas in this case offer a great starting point for a mid-level or budget build case without going overboard. At the time of the review, the SilverStone PS10 was found at Newegg for $49.99 with $7.99 shipping and a one year manufacturer’s warranty. The case has some great features, which makes this rock-bottom price an appealing value. Despite the smaller issues we found, most of the features and aesthetics included with this case are exceptional. Taking everything into account, the SilverStone PS10 easily earns our PureOverclock Great Hardware Award, and narrowly missed an Editor’s Choice Award because of our small complaints.
