It’s spacious alright, it’s so spacious that you are able to hold custom liquid cooling systems with ease. The cut-outs are with rubber grommets, a very helpful addition to make cable management more pleasing to th e sight.
At the rear, an exhaust fan and PCI-E openings. There’s not much clearance between the motherboard placement area and the upper side of the frame.
As for the blue LED, here it is. The LED is red colored for the black colored Primera PM01.
On the other side of the motherboard tray we have a drive cages, drive trays, 10-in-1 fan hub for fan cable management and velcro straps. It’s not the most spacious of area but it works very well for cable management.
Here’s what the casing looks like with everything in place. The GALAX GTX 970 in this picture isn’t a long card, just so you can visualize how huge is the room in the Primera PM01.
One thing to note is the quality of the color, especially for this white model. While the frame is painted white, the plastic cover for the front and top panels are white colored plastic that aren’t painted, so under certain lighting conditions you’ll see that the plastic areas have a tint of blue on it, as seen in the image below.
Getting everything in place on the Primera PM01 is easy, the casing is spacious and it is easy to get cables rounted the way you want.
The downsides of the Primera PM01 are as what I highlighted, the first being that the top and front panels are secured with a screw so you can’t remove them without a screwdriver. The second problem would be the horrible feet design.
As for the LED, I can’t say that it’s a bad thing but just note that you are bound to the LED color that comes with it. Blue LED on the white model, Red LED on the black model.
Speaking of LED, the front LED that is supposedly blue turns out to be purple.
The build quality of the Primera PM01 isn’t the best, it’s no where near entry level casings of course but neither does it carry the solid feel of the casings of other brands. I’d say the build quality is somewhere in the middle, good but not great.
The SilverStone Primera PM01 Desktop Casing is a beautiful and spacious casing, and it retails at RM 399 which is an excellent price for what you’re getting, even if you don’t intend to use the LED effects.
So what does the Primera PM01 look like when it’s fully setup? Have a look!
