Raven Revolutionizes Airflow If you build a custom water cooled PC, airflow isn’t a huge concern. As long as you have enough radiators, chances are your components will stay nice and cool. If you have air cooling however, optimized airflow is an absolute must from a PC case. The typical design from most cases is pretty mundane. SilverStone is turning case design on its head, almost literally, with a new Raven prototype at CES.
The AR07 is a solid looking cooler with quiet operation. Silverstone gives the buyer a unique budget option for the CPU, but cooling performance isn't as high as expected. This unit would be a solid upgrade to low-end stock cooler for sure though.
SilverStone gave an easy, affordable option to add addressable RGB lighting to fans without any. Not everyone is into RGB, but those who don't like trading performance for more lights will probably find the best of both worlds with the FG142/122. They even work for radiator fans.
The SIlverStone Milo Series ML09B Mini-ITX HTPC does a great job in the HTPC case market. The layout is functional and the price is excellent. If you're trying to build a specialized system in this chassis, you may have to work around some inconveniences and the built in fan could really use a PWM connection.
RGB lighting is either expensive with new fans or inconvenient for fans needed with high performance. Silverstone has a great option to add RGB to any 120mm or 140mm fan with their fan frames. They aren't very expensive, and the lighting looks great as well.
Introduction The quest for silence is an ultimate goal among the elite of computer enthusiasts. Some people take this quest to the extreme in having fanless computers, but even the slightest airflow can be inaudible while making a huge difference in temperatures. That’s exactly where SilverStone comes into the picture with their new series of Ultra-Quiet PWM fans. Rather than trying to break airflow records, these tools are designed to operate at a such a low level that you won’t be able to tell if they’re spinning unless you look at them. Before we take a closer look at the fans themselves, let’s take a quick glance at the company of SilverStone.

Since the original RAVEN RV01 debuted in 2008, the RAVEN team at SilverStone has demonstrated many times how it can truly define or defy computer enthusiasts’ expectations of what a performance PC is capable of in both form and function. For 2014, the Silverstone team had a new target, which was to exceed and reshape the small form factor landscape with yet another breakthrough case design. The result of this effort is a new line of case products from SilverStone called RAVEN Z. As the first model, this Raven RVZ01 is unlike any SilverStone small form factor cases before it. Utilizing a PCI-E riser and custom designed fans, this slim, 14-liter case is capable of housing some of the biggest consumer graphics cards on the market with superb air cooling performance and the ability to also support liquid cooling. Read on and let’s see if the Silverstone Raven RVZ01 is what we have all been waiting for.
With more households "cutting the cord" to make the move to an all internet streaming solution, having access to a full fledged PC can be key to entertainment bliss. Some home smart theater equipment has YouTube, Amazon Prime, Netflix or Hulu interfaces built right in. However, none of these boxes will have access to all of the named options, or a full fledged browser. They are also not capable of playing the latest PC games. This is why having a real PC connected to your television remains the best option. There are many choices when it comes to cases for your Home Theater PC. These will range from a full tower to the really small Intel NUC sized systems. Towards the smaller side of cases you will find the SilverStone MILO series of HTPC cases. The MILO series cases are designed to blend in with existing home theater equipment with simple styling and smaller profiles. Silverstone recently added the ML06 to the MILO lineup to add another layer of options for HTPC builders using Mini ITX boards. You were able to use the ML03 and ML04 cases but the ML06 is a whopping 50% smaller than the ML03! At a reported 7 liters, let's see if the ML06 stands up to the style and smart designs of the previous MILO HTPC cases.
One of the most common questions we ask when working on a new computer build is “what power supply (PSU) should I get?” Often times it can be a tricky decision, as many manufacturers make the same claims as one another. What can compound this decision-making process is the amount of space you have to work with in your rig. If you are building a smaller form-factor PC, the size of your PSU can limit the total wattage you can get in your PSU as well, which can confound you even more. SilverStone is here to tell you that size doesn’t mean everything. Enter their Strider Essential series power supply. For today’s review, we have their ST60F-ESG 600W unit on hand. It is rated with an 80 Plus Gold certification, is non-modular, and provides 600W of total power output. We’ll see if this PSU lives up to Silverstone’s legendary quality.
Are you in the market for a budget priced chassis that looks like you spent more? Introducing the PS10 case from SilverStone, a mid tower case that offers a wide variety of hardware configurations and cooling support. SilverStone frequently leans toward a more budget build of case, yet their cases don't lack for interesting character which appeals to many builders. Can the new PS10 live up to both of these expectations? Read on to find out!

For today's review, we have their top dog on hand: rated at 80 Plus Gold certification and being fully modular with a silent operating 120mm fan and 850W of total power output, we'll see if this PSU lives up to Silverstone's legendary quality. We will also be taking a quick look at their new line of PP07 braided cable extensions for those of you who are simply not satisfied with plain looking cables, but lack the skill/time/patience to do your own custom braiding. First, a word on Silverstone for those who are new to the brand:

Introduction Up for review today on our test bench is the SilverStone Tundra TD02 AIO CPU cooler. The TD02 is SilverStone’s first attempt at breaking into the AIO liquid cooling market. Since 2003 SilverStone has been bringing us unique and quality-built products like the TJ11 computer case, which is still being modded today, and exceptional air coolers. Unlike most of the AIO coolers out there the TD02 features a 45mm thick radiator instead of your standard 25-30mm and has a copper base with a nickel-plated aluminum unibody. The copper base is also unique; most AIO blocks I’ve seen aren’t a full cover, meaning there are screws on the bottom of the block holding a lid on. Unlike those blocks, as we will see later on, the TD02 is a solid piece of copper giving us full coverage on our CPU. The SilverStone Tundra TD02 comes with 2 x 120mm PMW controlled fans that have a static pressure of 3.5mm/H20 and a max airflow of 92.5CFM. Will SilverStone’s first attempt at entering the AIO CPU cooling market be able to hang with the veterans? I guess you will have to keep reading to find out. Before we jump into the review here is a word about SilverStone:
Introduction One of the biggest letdowns while installing or upgrading graphics cards is to find out the cards blocks off SATA connectors on their motherboards. This is still a common occurrence as motherboards are made with the assumption that users with long and powerful graphics card don’t need to use all SATA connectors while users with lots of SATA drives typically don’t need to install long cards. SilverStone engineers, took up the challenge to design a cable that will allow SATA connectors to be used even with long graphics cards installed. After months of research and development, the CP11, a revolutionary SATA cable, was conceived. It has incredibly low connector profile that is barely taller than the SATA connector on the motherboard to clear any card that you may wish to install. CP11 also has super-thin wires designed to the limit of allowable SATA standard with high quality material for uncompromised data and bandwidth integrity. They are so thin that CP11 can be routed into the tiny gaps between SATA connectors on the motherboard! If you want to utilize SATA connectors that were originally blocked off or want to upgrade your card without sacrificing SATA connections, the CP11 is your perfect solution. Features Ultra thin cable design for use on any motherboard High quality construction for top speed and reliability Super low-profile connectors Specifications Model No. SST-CP11 Color Black connector, blue cable Connectors Lateral 90° angled SATA connect...
