SPECS & FEATURES: SILVERSTONE ST50NF

Silverstone has always done a good job with packaging and presentation. No surprises here. The silver color box of the Silverstone fanless series remains largely unchanged from their previous fanless models


Big silver color box.


Nice packaging, with excellent shock protection.


The ST50NF output cables are long, plentiful and permanently attached. It might be hard to keep the cables tidy in a small or minimalist system. As with all previous fanless Silverstones, the top panel is a thick aluminum extrusion with fins and vent holes. All but one other side is well vented.


This photo of the ST50NF from the Silverstone web site shows how the internal heatsinks are mechanically and thermally joined with the top external plate, just like in the STR-500.
