  • SilverStone SETA H1 Airflow Case Review
  • SilverStone SETA H1 Airflow Case Review



    Several years ago, from the time of this article, I got the opportunity to review the SETA-A1 from SilverStone.  I had seen that case on a number of occasions starting with CES 2020 and at first didn't pay much attention to it.  The case featured a solid aluminum panel that was attached to the standard front bezel.  Behind that were two extremely large 200mm cooling fans totally hidden from view.  While the chassis had a very typical design the unique feature was how the cooling was handled along with the unique aluminum colors on the front panel.

    In this review we will be looking at the new SETA H1 from SilverStone.  The SETA H1 is a sister case to the SETA Q1 where the Q1 is designed for silent operation and features a solid front bezel and sound proofing on the inside.  For the SETA H1 the focus is different and favors a higher form of airflow using dual 160mm fans breathing through a fully meshed front bezel and addressable RGB (ARGB) lighting.

    The chassis is a standard mid-tower supporting many of the popular mid tower features and comes with a total of three fans along with a tempered glass side panel.  We will go over these features and more later in this review.
