Silverstone’s Spin on Case Design

October 28, 2008

Or should i say rotation, the main feature behind Silverstone’s new case is that they have rotated the orientation of the motherboard so that the I/O panel, etc, face upwards. Their reasoning behind the shift, is to push air up and out of the case, instead of through the back. It seems very logical, hot air rises, so make all those heat spewing graphics cards expel heat in an efficient manner.

Obviously there are some criticisms, why change what already works? Well now you have all of your cables coming out of the top of the case, etc. However, there are just as many pros, aside from the aforementioned benefits, heavy graphics cards will have their weight better distributed along a vertical PCIe slot, rather than horizontal, for example.
