  • SilverStone Fara H1M Pro Case Review
  • SilverStone Fara H1M Pro Case Review



    These days computers are getting smaller and smaller but finding a good case for a Mini or micro build is still a challenge.  Fortunately companies like SilverStone are there to meet the need. The Silverstone Fara H1M Pro hopes to show that a tiny build doesn’t mean you need to have tiny expectations!

    Can a Micro case provide all of the features enthusiasts expect?  Let’s take a closer look!

    The Fara H1M Pro is the latest in the Fara (FA) series and one of two micro-ATX designs in the lineup.  The H1M design comes in two variants, a standard H1M and the PRO model featured in this review and indicates the case comes with an 4-port ARGB fan hub to power the pre-installed ARGB fans.

    Currently the H1M Pro comes in only a black finish with a large tempered glass side panel. However the non-PRO version does ship in white so who knows what the future holds?

    • Equipped with three 120mm ARGB fans and ARGB controller
    • Steel honeycomb mesh design provides superior air intake volume to cool internal components
    • Precisely designed interior provides sufficient space for most graphics card and multiple cooling options
    • Removable drive cage allows flexibility in PSU size and cable management space
