Building off the successful GD04 and GD05, two chassis models that set benchmarks in 2009, SilverStone created the Grandia GD06 to again raise the expectation enthusiasts have for HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) chassis. SilverStone engineering team's expertise in SFF (Small Form Factor) and HTPC are again in full display with GD06's expanded capability in storage and cooling performance. These improvements were made with the compact depth maintained (340mm) and exterior visuals enhanced as the GD06 is stunningly beautiful as a computer chassis and fits perfectly in the living room. Its five hard drive storage is augmented by two hot-swappable bays for maximum flexibility while a front door lock and a rear Kensington Security Slot ensure security for the installed drives. Cooling is provided by three 120mm silent fans with filters for exceptional performance, quietness and effective dust prevention. For those in doubt that a small footprint HTPC chassis can be used to build a powerful and fully loaded media server, the Grandia GD06 will change their mind.
Top customer reviews
**UPDATE: Since there seems to be an issue with people knowing the exact dimensions of this case they are: 440mm(W) x 175mm(H) x 425mm(D)or in inches: 17.3in(W) x 6.8in(H) x 16.7in(D)
**UPDATE: Since My original Review I have now built 8 HTPCs with this case and none have had any issues.
**UPDATE: Also something I forgot to mention, this case IS RACK MOUNTABLE... It has rack mounting points on the sides...
So now on to the actual review:
Space, lots and lots of space.
Positive pressure design with filters.
Very nice look, the case looks and acts well built.
Aesthetics, it looks better than my receiver and other components, easily the best looking component in my home theater.
Allows for full size components.
Room for more hard drives than you could need.
Removable Drive Cage with handles.
Room for 10 Internal Hard Drives (Without adapters) (8) 3.5 Inch Bays (7 to the right of the 5.25 bays, 1 to the left) plus (2) 2.5 mounts above the 5.25 inch bays.
(for what I want this is a con, but not for most people) 2 80mm fan mounts on the back above i/o panel, good for exhaust fans, but no standard liquid cooling solutions fit on an 80mm mounting point as of this review.
The drive door triggers can be a pain to align to your dvd/blu-ray drive causing the door to not open when the button is pressed or to open/close constantly (but with some adjusting this is sorted out)
Honestly this case looks more like a Home Theater component as opposed to a PC. I get people asking fairly often where my computer is, (since everything we watch runs through it) When I point it out they are truly surprised. I have built 5 more HTPCs using this case thanks to people seeing mine and loving the look. With these I have used nothing but full size components, which is great since airflow and dimension restrictions are not really a problem (there are some to be aware of but I'll cover those later)
The positive airflow keeps the dust out, I clean my filters out about 1 time per month with a dog and 2 cats in the house, but I haven't had any real dust in the case, it gets picked up by the filters, in 4 months no dust issues.
I'm extremely pleased with this case and I will continue to use it if people want me to build them a Home Theater PC...
It is made of quality steel, even empty with the cover and drive cage out it does not bend or twist. (this is a big issue with many HTPC cases)
Some things you do need to watch for are Video card height and length, the case only has 140mm of height above the motherboard, so be sure you aren't using an extra tall video card, also if you plan to fill up your hard drive case with drives pay attention to the length, clearance gets tight with hard drives mounted in the bays at about 9 inches... although with 8 places to mount 3.5 inch drives and 2 2.5 bays along with the 2 5.25 bays you have tons of ways to avoid interference with your video card.
Pay attention if you are using a tall CPU cooler, the max height of the cooler is 140MM, also going with a extra wide one might make cable routing difficult for your disc drives.
The removable drive cage is a lifesaver when it comes to mounting your drives, it is simple to pull out and put back thanks to the handles (this is important since 5 drives plus blu-ray and an SSD could be difficult to situate without the handles.
Ok, now I've gushed about the case lets look at the short list of cons I had... First the 2 80MM fan mounts above the I/O panel are useful for fans, but I really wanted to do a liquid cooling solution, but none of the standard sealed models utilize 80MM mounts, so I compromised and just put some fans in, for most people this is a good thing to have 2 additional fan locations, but I really wanted to do liquid cooling...
The 2 drive doors have triggers that sit against the open/close buttons on your drives. These can be a little tricky to align, I had this issue on my Asus Blu-ray but it was much simpler with a Sony one.
So to wrap up, This could very well be the case you're looking for. If you want a case to fit in just about any home theater setting this works perfectly. It is worth the price and I would recommend it to almost anyone. The only thing it doesn't have that some might want is an LCD screen, but for me, it's a great fit.
These cases are very versatile, I have built one with an M-Atx board and only a small SSD (to serve network media) many in between and even one with an E-Atx board with 32.5TB of storage (8 4GB Drives), 2 blu-rays etc...

Everything fit without an issue, and my CPU temp has never reached above 50 Degrees Celsius. I can't say enough about this case...
On to the more important stuff. There's plenty of space, plenty of fans, and plenty of vents. It comes with plenty of extra screws and other goodies for wire management. The vertical locking system used for hard drives may not be new, but it was new to me. Works very well for those still rocking 3.5 inch non-SSD hard drives. Case comes with two fans on the bottom, for cooling your hard drives. That was also, for me anyway, a first. A third pre-installed fan is housed on the right side of the case, right by the CPU on my motherboard. There is room for one additional fan on the right, and some smaller fans on the back. If you don't have enough fan headers on your motherboard, I'd suggest picking up some power adapters (if you don't already have them). None are included.
If you like to use many front-facing USB ports, be warned-only 2 available here. They are of the USB 3.0 variety if you happen to rock a state of the art motherboard in your HTPC. I ain't, so thankfully, there was an included adapter for connecting to legacy headers.
Some other details about the front of the case. While the LCDs are located behind the door, they do shine through a transparency out into your viewing world. [EDIT: As pointed out by a commenter, to whom I am very grateful, there is a small dial on the bottom of the front panel that allows you to block the LED from shining through the front.] [EDIT No. 2: Same commenter noted that there is a slider on the inside of the front panel that effectively disables the external power button--a much appreciated child-proofing feature.]
Finally, the key. Boy, does it feel flimsy. I've never been accused of having the world's firmest handshake, but I feel like I could easily bend this key in half. Something to keep in mind if you plan on opening the door often to load discs, connect devices, etc. Keep in mind, the door won't stay closed unless it is locked, so you can't simply leave it unlocked and discard or disregard the key.
These gripes are all rather minor [EDIT: and in at least 2 cases, my gripes were flat wrong, and corrected by a helpful comment], and I don't feel they warrant so much as a half-star deduction. Great case, and I'm very happy with it.
