The performance of the PS11B-Q was not far off from what I expected. The case is designed more so to be silent than it is to have the lowest temperatures around so while temps were a little high, the PS11B-Q did a great job at keeping the noise inside to a minimum which can be a very important feature of a case to a lot of people. As far as the temps go there is room for a couple more fans to be added to the case which will help to bring them down, though it would add a bit more noise, I don’t think it would be overwhelming. In short, as far as overall performance is concerned the PS11B-Q delivers where it is designed to.
Speaking of design, the PS11B-Q feature a fairly simple design though it does have a couple of upgrades to it that make it a bit nice than normal. One of the things I like the most how SilverStone opted to put in a pair of SSD trays which are right in plain sight but they are out of the way, this is a very nice touch and hopefully something we will see more of in the future. Aside from that, the PS11B-Q is designed for silence and as such there is some noise reduction insulation on both side panels and in the top of the case to help reduce the amount of noise that is allowed to escape the case.
Aesthetically speaking the case is quite nice to look at and would suit either a home or business environment. The front features a nice brushed aluminium look while the rest of the case is plain black as to not draw too much attention, again the case is designed to be more on the silent side than anything else and SilverStone have done a good job at not taking away from this.
Coming in at around £40 the PS11B-Q offers good value for the money, especially if you are looking for a simple case that will help reduce noise and keep things as quiet as possible. For your money, you will be getting a case that is pleasing to look at, keeps noise down and has good cable management options on the inside even though there is no window in the model on review so users will not be able to see into the case from the outside. If you are looking for a more basic case that has some noise reduction insulation in place to keep noise to a minimum, the SilverStone PS11B-Q may just be right up your alley.
When all is said and done the PS11B-Q performs as it was designed to and looks nice while doing, the PS11B-Q will not let you down if you are in the market for a case of this sort!
I would like to thank SilverStone for sending the PS11B-Q in for review and look forward to seeing what they bring out next.
