Sunbeamtech is a manufacturer of different modding materials for the enthusiast user out there – they have been increasing their pre-modded product line up for the last years, and today I take a closer look at one of their latest enclosures. I am one of those people with just not enough skill to modify a case exactly the way I want it, I usually end up damaging the case, creating blow holes which were not part of the design.

So the Silent Storm might well be ideal for me, it has a plexi window, lighted 120mm fans and trendy, yet not overdone, look. Plug and play fun.

A quite large box arrived on my doorstep, after removing the paper work and stickers I examined the outside and could not find any damage done by the long journey.

Inside the case is wrapped in Styrofoam and the protection seems to have worked well at first sight .

A manual, a bag of screws, some hard disk rails and 4 small plastic feet are stored inside the case:
