SilverStone, the Taiwanese manufacturer, has unveiled their latest line of computer cases. The Primera PM01 Series, named after the Spanish word for ‘first’ or ‘first class’, combine aesthetics with use. On the one hand it is good for showing off the pride and joy of your gaming rig. On the other, it has the capacity to handle the biggest and best in equipment.
SilverStone have taken the importance of keeping your components cool into serious consideration with the Primera PM01 series. It comes with three 140mm LED fans with built in LED strips, which are both cool and keep your rig cool. For those who need to have even more cooling, the rig is designed just for that. The internals of the chassis have water cooling in mind, with room for two 240/280/360mm radiators. It even has a reserved space to mount a water-cooling tank, meaning no compromise has to be made between efficient cooling and large electrical components.
Other features mainly focus on the aesthetics of the chassis. An oversized front panel is designed with inspiration from a “supercar intake grill.” The internal design includes a PSU and drive-bay cover to shield these less elegant parts of the computer out of sight. There is a 10 in 1 fan hub, which helps with effective cable management which is both better to look at and makes it easier for further modifications. Even the LEDs come with a controller to adjust brightness and colour modes.
