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.
Three silent 120mm fans included Positive air pressure design for excellent cooling/quietness and dust-prevention Incredible 340mm depth to fit comfortably inside home theater cabinet Designed with cable routing for easy installation Support 4 x 3.5” hard drives and 2.5” hard drive or SSD (Solid-state drive) Support expansion cards up to 11 inches Includes two front USB 3.0 ports

When you spend $105 on a case (price matched) you can have faith that you bought a great product. The case is so sturdy that I could drop a 20lbs weight on it and the case wouldn't even dent.
There is alot of room although be careful with cable management. I just gave up and stuffed them in the corner. Hot swap bays work perfectly, but its more a gimmick than anything else. How often are you gonna be taking out your hard drive on a HTPC? The foldable front panel is stylish and opens/closes like an IKEA kitchen set. The blue led light is not bright at all. It brings a nice ambient to the room when all other lights are off. The 3..yes 3 120mm fans!!! come standard. Its a nice upgrade from my usual of 0. They all suck air in, rather than out - so it keeps less dust from collecting.
I really love the look of this case, nice blue light for power in a V configuration. Can be a bit bright though. I can easily fit 4 Hard drives in it, will accept 5. Lots of room to work with for an HTPC case. Need a shorter powersupply though; can be tricky. I bought a silver stone modular one and i had to mount it upside down so it would clear the HDD cage. I would buy a short power supply so there are no issues. USB 3 is standard. Fan filters are a challenge to clean.
So far i haven't had any issues with cooling and it is very silent with all 3 fans going.
