As the leader in HTPC design, SilverStone's Grandia GD09 and GD10 are the pinnacle of space efficiency and compatibility. Designed to fit full size components such as ATX power supply, ATX Motherboard, 5.25" Drive, 3.5", and 2.5" Drives, it is still compact enough to fit inside most living room TV stand or home theater cabinet comfortably.

-big airflow, perfect for cooling 4k gaming components. Keeps my OCed 2080Ti at 70/76 degrees Celcius on high load for as long as necessary. 3x 80mm fans, 3x 120mm fans and 1 60mm fan above the GPU
-dust filters integrated on the sides
-anti vibration pads
-will accept a 2080Ti, but depending on the cooling solution you have it will not fit. I had to cut a part of the covers of my MSI Trio
-limited height, will take a noctua NHC14s but nothing higher
-had to buy SSD pci brackets because there are no mountings for SSDs if you want to cool your components properly
Other than that, I like how the case looks and my monitor is stacked on top. With 2 80mm rear fans the cooling is sufficient for extreme processing work, but I had to purchase an external DVD drive to complete my build using the standard AMD 2700X cooler. I also agree with the reviewer that mentioned that any modification is going to take pretty much a complete disassembly (e.g., adding/changing out the SSD, etc.)
I purchased the largest model without the locking front plate. I was able to gain about an inch of space deeper and about half an inch taller, just enough space to fit the graphics card. This is about the only positive I can give the case layout if you choose to use some pretty traditional computer components and the default setup then case comes in. For the actual size of the case, you have very limited space to work and store each PC component.
The graphics card on a traditional Matx board sits directly in the middle of this case, immediately blocking airflow into or out of the case, depending on your fan setup. In my case, I took advantage of the 2 smaller fan slots in the back of the case. That right side contains my processor and memory, so I want as much airflow as possible in this area, especially with this section of my PC being walled off from all fans located on the power brick side on the left of the case.
The left of the case also gets the benefits of more open space for airflow and the fans of the graphics card pointed it that direction. I can get a good negative airflow on the left of the case with this setup, but for what if my processor is cooking? Once again, I recommend adding fans wherever possible where they are missing on purchase. Did I add your only space to add a mechanical hard drive and optical drive also sit stacked on top of one another right above that processor?
I tried to add my standard size mechanical drive to this setup, but the graphics card sat flush with the data connector of the drive, which created enough pressure to break the plastic off of the connector while trying to install the optical drive and hard drive in tandem. Part of this is the fault of the size of the graphics card, but a majority of this issue was in the design of the case. My previous Silverstone case did not have this setup issue, whereas the HDD sat instead above the power supply.
My recommendations would be to go completely SSD with this case, as you can potentially fit 4 drives depending on your setup. There is a place to attach an SSD to the floor of this case. You can buy a 3.5" dual SSD bay and install 2 drives in place of a HDD which wont fit without a fight. If you have a newer PC board, you should be able to get a M.2 SSD to fit directly to the board to keep a low profile. Buy a modular PC power supply to cut down on clutter and to improve case airflow. Expect to spend time setting up this case, and to spend time taking the case apart any time you need to work on any component inside the case.
I purchase these cases specifically for the look and because they fit cleanly in entertainment centers. I can create greater home theatre PC's from them, however they definitely have their limitations in form factor and are not pleasant to work in at all. But if I can build a gaming rig with one of the largest graphics cards on the market with it, then the case more than serves its purpose.

Many FAQs about graphics cards in these cases are saying they will fit fine because of length, but don't consider height.
Lots of detail on other reviews so I won't go over them again. Works great with a DVD drive installed with a ryzen 2700 and wraith spire cooler. Won't fit the wraith prism cooler though without removing the DVD drive. but I can't blame it for that as it is a huge cooler, and there are many capable alternative coolers that will fit.
I took one star off because the included fan filters actually do nothing unless you are trying to keep bugs and fingers out. In a few weeks there was a lot of dust on the fan blades and virtually no dust in the filters.
The included side fan is a touch noisy for an HTPC. It was loud enough that it did present ambient, somewhat distracting noise for silent parts of a program. I ended up replacing with Artic F12 silent fan and it's now spot on.
I will say the fan layout is a bit odd though. The main fan slots being on the sides are fascinating given this is a specific HTPC case. Dropping unit then into a very typical, vanila component shelff as a result leaves very little room on on the sides and you can just end up re-circulating hot air. It's ok as an input fan source, but I dropped in a couple of 80mm fans to the back fan slots as the output fans - makes a world of difference. Seeing a pretty good dip in internal chassis temp per my motherboard. I know it's designed this way to keep the front nice and solid, but there's downsides.
It's very clearly advertised that front panel is plastic that's made to look like brushed aluminum. But this review is just a reminder of that. It does a pretty good job, but I have a weird feeling over time it's going to get a bit dulled.
All in all though, really nice case for an HTPC.
