A few months back I took a look at the SilverStone Kublai KL05B-Q, a budget case from a manufacturer not well known for affordable cases. It performed fairly well but lacked the fit and finish of their more popular/expensive models. The side panels didn't fit as well as I would have liked and he drive cages were incredibly vibration prone, but it had some features you don't typically find in budget towers. Most notably, it had a dedicated radiator compartment which made it look overly tall and lanky.


The Precision PS11B-Q.

The Precision PS11 is a budget case in the same vein, though more modestly sized and even lower in price at US$50. It stands under 17 inches tall but it is somewhat wide due to 140 mm fan support at the front and beveled side panels with center sections extending outward, presumably to allow for bigger components and more cabling. It has a plain matte black finish with a plastic front panel that looks a bit darker than the rest of the chassis. The only flourish is a shiny metal strip across the front bezel with a mirror finish bearing SilverStone's branding.

Like the KL05, the PS11 comes in two different models. Our sample is the mostly solid PS11B-Q as opposed to the PS11B-W which sports a side window, fan placements on the ceiling, and a front-facing mesh intake grill that allows more air in. Another difference is the B-Q has foam padding, so it's a silence-oriented tower according to modern case conventions.


Unboxed.


Accessories.

The PS11 offers little in the way of extras. Included is a nut-driver for tightening the standoffs, all the necessary screws (no fan screws though), a few zip-ties, a rudimentary security lock, and an assembly guide printed on just a single folded sheet of paper.
