Silverstone has introduced two new HTPC cases in the Grandia series, the GD07B and GD08B.

Cooling features includes one 120 mm fan (900 RPM @ 18 dBA) with space for one 120 mm on the side, two 80 mm on the rear and two 120 mm fans (900 RPM @ 18 dBA) at the bottom.

On the other hand, the GD08B is primarily made of SECC/steel and front-panel bezels made of aluminium, this one measures 440 x 175 x 435 mm (WxHxD). Drive bays include two 5.25″, eight 3.5″ and two 2.5″ internal. Cooling is similar to the GD07B except that you find three 120 mm fans (900 RPM @ 18 dBA) at the bottom.
