SilverStone released a handful of new cases and coolers a few months back, targeting an array of price points for DIY PC builders. One of the more affordable additions to the line-up was the SilverStone Fara B1 mid-tower we're evaluating today. The Fara B1 is priced to move at about $60, but it has the looks and features of much more expensive cases. Of course, looks can be deceiving, so we decided to get our hands on the Fara B1 to see if its worthy of consideration for your next budget-friendly desktop #PCMasterRace build. We are going to get down and dirty with the SilverStone Fara B1 and build-up a full gaming system inside it, to ascertain whether or not it is a worthwhile purchase.... Read more...
SilverStone has been in the AIO (all-in-one) liquid cooling game since 2013, so the cooler we're reviewing today should be a fairly refined product with years of deep feedback and iteration built in. Back in the day, closed loop, AIO liquid coolers were relatively limited in terms of options, but SilverStone was able to distinguished itself by having a unique full alloy water-block that was constructed with a copper base, along with an aluminum body. The cooler also featured brazing fins, similar to those of air coolers, for increased heat transfer. It was initially well received, but was ultimately sidelined due to a myriad of small issues. 2020 is a long way from 2013 though, and since then... Read more...
Most computer enthusiasts know Falcon Northwest for its screaming-fast systems and high-end PC paint jobs, but LAN-party goers will tell you that Falcon Northwest pioneered the LAN-party system with its portable-but-ultra-powerful FragBox computer. The venerable gaming system took a hiatus while the Tiki micro tower enjoyed the limelight, but it looks like we’ll all be seeing a lot of the FragBox very soon – and it’s going to be carrying two Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan video cards for firepower. The new FragBox is back, and it's bringing some friends from Nvidia. Image Credit: Falcon Northwest Falcon Northwest teased the FragBox to fans with a single image on its Facebook page...

If you love building computers, you probably appreciate a good case or chassis. While there are plenty of excellent products available for a song, there’s also an upper echelon of models that cost quite a bit and offer all the premiere features you could hope for. While it seems as though there’s a lot of similarity between low-end and midrange cases, once you get to a certain price point, various companies take things in very different directions. The three premium chassis we’re looking at in this roundup certainly bear that out. In Win, Lian Li, and SilverStone all make some beautiful cases. And when we asked them to send us one of their top of the line products, they all... Read more...

If you find the idea of a tiny small form factor machine appealing but can't stand the limited performance and lack of customizability of current "nettops", then listen up. This is your lucky day as we're going to take you on a quick tour around some exciting new ITX products and show you that 'performance ITX' isn't an oxymoron but rather an outmoded stereotype, a relic of the past. Beyond Atom: Exploring Performance ITX Solutions... Read more...
Thanks largely to all of the attention surrounding the Intel Atom platform and its alternatives like the Via Nano and NVIDIA Ion, small form factor (SFF) systems have been generating tech news in a big way for the past half year. While tiny toaster-sized machines have been relevant for some time, as proven by the continued success of Shuttle Computers, it has been a relative niche that doesn't get nearly as much hype as gigantic, fire-breathing gaming rigs. Historically, there have been very good reasons why tiny little ITX machines weren't more mainstream. Pre-Atom, they have been a rather poor value for the general consumer. Despite being significantly smaller than a typical mid-tower,... Read more...
We haven't posted any Power Supply news recently, but this one deserves some attention. Phoronix has reviewed SilverStone's Zeus ST75F 750W PSU, which is geared towards the most energy hungry PCs out there(Quad-SLI anyone?). "If the popular 500~600W power supply units are not enough to suit the growing needs of computer enthusiasts, SilverStone Technology has released a phenomenal 750W continuous power PSU. With providing just over the equivalent of one horsepower, the SilverStone Zeus ST75ZF features quad +12V rails, dual PCI-E 6-pin connectors (plus the option for two more), industrial grade components, and active PFC. Is... Read more...
Version 3.1 of Silverstone's SG-01 Evolution SFF case is a great pick if you're looking to build a small, portable PC. Good ventilation, and the ability to use any standard size ATX PSU are just some of the features you'll find. "One of the first things that grab your attention is the simple but yet, elegant design of the SG-01, from the stylish Silverstone logo to the well placed silver/chrome accents around the two 5.25" drive bays and the background behind the front access ports. Speaking of which in addition to the customary audio ports, the IEEE 1394 port and two USB 2.0 ports that have become standard on just about every case manufactured... Read more...
SystemCooling.Com has just reviewed a 600W modular power supply from Silverstone, the makers of the popular "Temjin" line of enclosures.  I personally use a Temjin TJ04 for my personal system, and love it, but haven't fully evaluated any of Silverstone's PSUs.  I guess after I get this posted, I'll be checking this article out!The new SilverStone Strider ST60F is a fully modular power supply unit (PSU) rated for 600 watts continuous load that offers power and flexibility in one package.

ECS KN1 SLI Extreme Mainboard @ BigBruin "Although they still have strong a focus on motherboards, they have not always received praise from the computer enthusiast segment. ECS is trying to change that with the release of their new flagship motherboard, the KN1 SLI Extreme. On paper it has the makings of a very solid motherboard that could help you move into a SLI configuration... Read more...
Hey folks! After some internet downtime, I'm back on the net and ready to deliver the news. With my cable internet gone, but cable TV still remaining, I fell back to watching the boob tube to ease my boredom, though I had to endure commercial after commercial of Verizon DSL. It wasn't a complete loss though, as I got a few laughs from the irony that I keep wishing for James Earl Jones and Verizon to come to my town and save me from the dark side. Anyway, let's get to it! SilverStone NT02 CPU Cooler @ Overclockers Online "If you're looking for a quality cooler that you can use over several platforms, it's easy to recommend the SilverStone NT02. If coupled with some real thermal paste (Arctic... Read more...

Good evening everyone, welcome back to HotHardware.  With the weekend winding down and a small slush storm inhabiting the outer limits of my house, I think it is time that we cuddle up with our favourite caffeinated beverage and delve into the world of tech news. Here is your Nightcap...  SilverStone Gemini ST46GF Redundant Power Supply @ SystemCooling "SystemCooling.com has reviewed a lot of power supplies over the past two years but none that provided hardware redundancy and hot-swap capabilities.

Hey folks, up for some reading? How about some updating? Version 1.0.2 of Firefox is now available, it's nothing special unless you consider browser security important :) Now, on with the reviews... Pentium M on your Socket 478 platform: Part 2 @ Legit Reviews "Included with the CT-479 are the installation guide, a heatsink/fan, one 4-pin power cable, and the socket adapter. The only "tool" needed for this kit is a flat head screw driver to secure the Pentium M processor in the socket just like what is done on a notebook computer." SilverStone Temjin TJ06 Case Review @ 3DXtreme "Once again, I have to say that Silverstone has made a quality case. Based on a very solid... Read more...
Hey there folks, we've got a full line-up for you this Friday morning.  If you are in the market for a sweet HTPC case, the SilverStone LC10 may be what you need.  You may also want to check the LC11 I reviewed not too long ago as another option.  The HIS Radeon X800XL is another piece that catches my eye.  While they can be really hard to find in the states, HIS makes some great cards.  Well, let's get started! Have a great weekend. HIS Radeon X800XL PCI-E @ Hardwareavenue.com: "When you first hear "X800XL", it is quite natural for words such as "bastardised", "featureless" and "cheap" to come to mind, primarily brought...

As the old saying goes, "Times are a changing".  When the personal computer first caught on, word processing and text based gaming was all the rage, and then there was this thing called the "Internet" on the rise.  Today, the Internet is at the center of the technological universe and the PC has become a powerful tool commonly used in everyday life.  Today's PCs have a myriad of uses from running the latest games to controlling all of the electrical components in our homes.  The possibilities available to the average consumer are now only limited by imagination and budget. One of the more popular, and natural progressions for the PC is in the Home Theater. ... Read more...
Good to see you again friends :)  With the world of work starting back up for me again this morning, I do not have a huge amount of time to chit-chat.  However, I do have enough to fire up another round of linkage.  Enjoy your day, I will "see" you back here later this evening...  SilverStonetek SST-FP54 Review @ ExtensionTech.net "You'd perhaps think that this parallel powered VFD was late into the market. And well, perhaps it is...But seeing that you can't buy too many printers these days that use the parallel port anymore, that leaves potential for all those free printer ports doesn't it? This parallel (2x16) character VFD from SilverStone, with its beveled,... Read more...
Hey folks!  Happy Friday to ya!  I'm pretty psyched for this weekend a little more than most.  We have a good friend stopping in from out of town that we haven't seen in a while.  I certainly look forward to catching up.  Saturday, my wife has mustered up the courage to attempt selling some of her photography.  Being an aspiring photographer can be tough.  People can be very critical about your work, which is very personal.  I admire her determination, I don't think I would have the courage to do it.  Sadly, it's an outside venue and rain is in the forecast.  Looks like Murphy's Law is in full effect!  Good thing we have a tent.  Enough...
