Up Close:  interior

The Primera has a huge interior, unencumbered by traditional 3.5" drive bays placement.  The massive CPU cut out is also flanked by cable management holes, the more visible ones of which have rubber grommet covers to them.

It's not very often you get a case that ships with three 140mm fans already installed, never mind red LED ones!  The holes and slots you can see can be used to mount 2.5" drives on the reverse, or pumps and reservoirs on this side.

As you can see in the images below, SilverStone's solution to the false floor problem is to install a sliding cover plate which can be moved forward or back depending on whether you're putting a rad in here, which if you are will need to be no thicker than 50mm

The false floor in the Primera covers the whole of the case bottom and has a nice simple SilverStone logo printed on it which can be seen through the case window.  At the rear there's seven vented expansion slot covers.

Up in the roof there's room for up to three 120mm or 140mm fans, and with a decent offset for the 120s we should be able to get a reasonable sized 360mm rad up there.

A hundred quid for a shiny plastic version of the Phantom.

Honestly man looking at those photos I wouldn't even want to fart within a five mile vicinity without worrying I would leave marks on it.

Ed. And there is more orange peel on that thing than at a half time break in an amateur five a side game.Quote
