The housing specialist Silverstone offers in this segment to a very noble, high-quality finish and functionally equipped product range. The design is at once straightforward and refined, as evidenced for example in the exterior cladding, which is made of brushed aluminum. Particularly clever is the integrated into the Cube handles at the top, which predestined the CS01B outright for a LAN-housing.
Another Ingenious feature in this cube-housing is the cooling of the hardware that makes use of the chimney effect, in which a pre-installed in the bottom 120 mm fan (1,200 U / min, 19.7 dB (A)) cold air sucks down and which then emerges again at the top. This is made possible by the 90 ° rotated design of the CS01, because the motherboard in the Mini-ITX form factor is installed virtually on the back, so that the back panel of the board is located in the housing cover.
Besides a large mesh surface here are two additional USB 3.0 ports and the PCI aperture for low-profile expansion card. The Silverstone SST-CS01B Mini-ITX Storage can, as the name suggests it, accommodate a wide range of data carriers in the form of two per 2.5-inch SSDs and 3.5-inch hard drives. A graphics card in low profile format can be up to 190 mm long, while CPU cooler can be up to 68 mm high and the optional SFX PSU can be up to 130 mm long.
