The SilverStone Redline RL07 caught the attention of many when it was announced, after all that unique front of it looks great but just how good is the casing?
Starting from the top, the SilverStone Redline RL07 is totally flat at the top with not a single opening other than the USB and audio ports. There’s no sign of reset button either, nor LED at all – just a power button and I like it that way.
This is the front of the casing of which you’ll have a view later on how it looks like when it’s lit.
Open the front of the casing and you’ll see that it is a plastic piece with a wire connected to the LED within.
The front comes with dust filter that’s held in place by magnet, however the dust filter is not usable when the mounting screws of cooler units have large heads.
This is the rear of the SilverStone Redline RL07, what I didn’t like is that it uses a primitive form of mounting where the PCI-E covers are held in place by a single piece on top.
This is bad because once you have a graphics card in place that large sized bar doesn’t come into contact with any of the covers.
To make things worse, if you attempt to remove the graphics card you’ll have to release the bar and all the PCI-E covers will surely drop. 🙁 The only way to get all into place is by having to align the casing sideways.
Here’s the bottom of the SilverStone Redline RL07 – the feet stretches from front to back on both sides with 4 tiny rubber to grip the surface.
