Silverstone GD05B Grandia Micro-ATX Case (HTPC Case) £53.99 + Del (Free for AV Forum members) @ Scan

£53.99

Found 3rd Feb 2011
This price is only available on the Today Only Page, link goes to main page to show description only. I've been looking at this case for a while now, as it will take all normal parts, but is shallow enough to fit under my TV. Doesn't look to bad either.


The Grandia GD05 is a follow-up of the incredible GD04 as a chassis that combines years of SilverStone expertise in SFF (Small form factor) and HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) designs. It has the same beautifully proportioned exterior and powerful thermal capability that rivals the best tower chassis.

However, the front panel of the GD05 was designed to be more flexible so that its 325mm depth can be utilized in more places than just home theaters. Even though GD05’s diminutive size allows it to easily integrate into any home theater cabinet, it can still accommodate an impressive list of standard components such as 5.25” device, two 3.5” hard drives, a 2.5” SSD, a standard ATX power supply, and two high-end graphics cards up to 11 inches. Cooling duty in the GD05 is handled by three filtered 120mm fans designed with the same positive air pressure to enable class-leading cooling efficiency, reduced dust buildup, and silent operation. To make installation simpler, there is even enough space for cable management to be easily accomplished without the need for short cabled or modular power supply. Coupled with special attention given to the order of installation, any user can quickly assemble or upgrade the GD05 with a small and powerful PC system.

It is halfway down the page under Silverstone Cases surprisingly

Oh the only thing to be aware of is the size of the CPU Cooler 70mm if you use a DVD Drive or 120mm if you aren't.

I got this the last time it was on sale. It is a brilliant HTPC case!

I agree, great case, I would recommend a low powered modular power supply thou as its difficult to manage all those extra cables.

How much does this normally retail at, if anyone knows?

A good complimentary Blu-Ray drive would be the Samsung SH-B083L:

Actually that's a Samsung SH-B123L Blu-ray, or to be precise it's MY blu-ray drive sitting in my computer!

Excellent case and for those who miss it this time round it was last in the 'today only' section about three weeks ago so if you keep looking you should be able to get it at this price again.

I fitted a Seasonic M12II-520W modular power supply in mine and was glad I did, without going modular I'd have been left with an awful lot of cabling which would have had to sit in front of the fan on the left hand side.

christ that's massive

This is the case I have at the moment, sits nicely on top of a full size A/V receiver:
