  • SilverStone SST-PM02 Primera Series Case Review



    It is no secret we are big fans of SilverStone cases here in the lab thanks to their innovative designs and exceptional build quality.  When we first got a glimpse of the new lower priced cases this year at CES, I jumped at the chance to take a closer look and today we will be looking at the first of these new mid-tower designs.

    The SilverStone SST-PM02 Primera Series case is designed to support the latest in cooling options comes with an oversized tempered glass window while and still keeping your budget in mind.  Can the PM02 live up to the promise?  Let’s find out!

    The Primera PM02 is something of a sequel to the popular PM01 design we reviewed back in 2016.  Gone are the angular plastic pieces and abundant mesh which is now replaced with a cleaner, more modern look. The 8.66 x 19.33 x 17.95 inch PM02 is offered in two colors including an all black with red accents you see here and a pure white version.  Both cases feature the oversized Tempered glass window found on most SilverStone designs today.

    Let’s take a look at the specs:
