Silverstone announced the release of the PS12 Precision Series mATX chassis. The PS12 features front access USB 3.0 ports and removable fan filter, ample space for hard drives, and clearance for graphics cards as long as 14.1 inches.
The PS12 is designed to be an affordable PC enclosure that doesn't sacrifice every possible feature. The case layout allows for up to four 3.5-inch hard drives to be installed along with a single SSD/2.5-inch drive. Silverstone also included two 5.25-inch bays for optical drives.
On the front of the case there are two USB 3.0 ports, headphone and microphone jacks, and large power and reset buttons next to LED indicator lights. The PS12 case also features a front access dust filter for the intake fans. Silverstone included one 12 cm intake fan, but there is space for an additional 80 mm fan below it for more airflow.
The case supports only mATX and mini-ITX motherboards and offers four rear expansion slots, but it has support for graphics cards just over 14 inches long by mounting the hard drives higher in the case. The design does limit the maximum width of the GPU (height from the PCI-e slot) to 5.7 inches, though.
