SilverStone’s FS204 – Moar Storage!

With today’s larger and larger games, operating systems and file formats, more storage space is sometimes a need, rather than a desire. Whilst most cases have a few drive mounts, sometimes we need more. More! Enter the SilverStone FS204, a 5.25″ bay device to finally put that empty optical drive bay to use! Fitting in four 2.5″ drives, this single bay device offers a semi-premium option to the market segment, with an all aluminium construction, black anodising and lockable drive sleds. Let’s see if the FS204 fits the higher price point, or if it’s all just hot air. The Specs …

An In Depth Look at SilverStone’s Nightjar NJ450-SXL

It’s finally here. SilverStone’s Nightjar NJ450-SXL, the completely passive 450 Watt SFX-L power supply has arrived. SilverStone gave SFF Network the first look (and I mean first!) at this unit at Computex 2017, and our community has waited with bated breath since then. The idea of a passive (or even just a silent) SFX power supply has been on our minds for some time. Somewhat satiated by semi-fanless designs, we nonestheless still desired that final step – completely fanless. In all honesty, I expected the first real foray into fanless SFX(-L) would have been a 300W unit at best, but …

Silverstone’s Passive SFX-L PSU launched !

After our hands-on with a prototype at Computex 2017 almost exactly one year ago, the long awaited NJ450-SXL passively cooled SFX-L PSU from Silverstone is finally ready for its debut ! Silverstone claims 24/7 continuous running @ 40°C ambient on the NJ450-SXL, which they usually qualifies its actively-cooled PSUs for. A beefy aluminium heat-dissipating housing envelops the chassis to allow heat wicking away from some of the more heat-producing components. To top this off, more premium quality components have been selected to maintain the SX800-LTI’s 80 PLUS Titanium rating on this passively cooled power supply as well. The fully modular …

Silverstone CS280 Reviewed – DIY NAS Made Easier

  We would like to thank SilverStone for providing us with review sample of their CS280 8-Bay 2.5″ NAS chassis. Without their generosity, this case review would not be possible. At CES 2018, Silverstone had a large number of 40 liter+ cases on display (which we chose not to cover). Unfortunately for us, the ITX market was largely ignored at their suite. Save for a certain power-supply that we’re pretty eager to get our hands on, there wasn’t much for us to cover …although there are rumors that we may see something special at Computex 2018. What we didn’t see …

SilverStone SX650-G and SX500-G Reviewed

We would like to thank SilverStone for providing us with review samples of their SX650-G and SX500-G units. Without their generosity, this power supply review would not be possible.
