  • SilverStone FARA R1 Pro Case Review
  • SilverStone FARA R1 Pro Case Review



    SilverStone continues to provide one of the largest lines of quality cases available on the market with a style and design for just about any build.  I really like the cooling options found on the FARA R1 Pro and the jump to an ARGB option is such an easy choice.  The included controller might be pattern and color limited but the option to hook the fans directly into your motherboard or a separate controller is a nice feature.

    More demanding builds may require a jump to a larger chassis but, at this price point, you will be hard pressed to find a component that won't fit.

    This might be a price point issue but I did notice the lack of rubber grommets for cable routing and while I like the option to mount more SSDs behind the motherboard tray I have never been able to use them due to cable routing constraints.

    Speaking of cable routing I am a big fan of the four holed "dimples" on the motherboard tray as they are an extremely elegant solution that is just easy to use.

    Overall, with the FARA R1 Pro you will get tremendous versatility and an incredible value for your money. It is nice to see a sub $100 case with so many options for different builds that also offers room to grow.
