PHYSICAL DETAILS

The Grandia GD08 is a black steel enclosure with an aluminum front panel, measuring 44.0 x 17.5 x 42.5 cm or 17.3 x 6.9 x 16.7 inches (W x H x D) for a total volume of 32.7 liters, weighing 7 kg or 15.4 lb. The GD07 shares the same dimensions but for an extra 10 mm of depth due to the more elaborate front bezel/door.


Behind the GD07's aluminum door is a plastic front with ugly hinges and 5.25 inch drive bays on each side. It's an odd design choice for a desktop style media PC case.


The GD07 is slightly deeper than the GD08 due to the extra plastic at the front.


The right side of the GD07/08 is outfitted with a pair of 120 mm fan placements (one populated). Easily removable external dust filters are provided for all of the 120 mm intakes. The filters are relatively open compared those we usually encounter.


Additional cooling is provided via the bottom panel in the form of two 120 mm fans with an option for one more. The stock setup has all three fans blowing inward to create positive pressure.


A vent is positioned on the left for the power supply. The case is designed to push heat out the back via vents on the top of the case, at the back via the two 80 mm fan placements and expansion slots.


The 0.8 mm thick cover comes off via two screws at the back. The catches look fairly sturdy and some soft material has been added to prevent drive cage handles from rattling against the cover.
