The DS380 is composed of an brush aluminum front door affixed to a thick plastic bezel and a sturdy steel body. It measures 21.1 x 28.5 x 36.0 cm or 8.3 x 11.2 x 14.2 inches (W x H x D), giving it a total volume of 21.6 Liters.

The right side of the case is featureless except for the door lock which uses a pentagonal key.

The case's sole intake source is two 120 mm fans on the left side covered by a thin mesh filter held on with tiny magnets. A smaller filter is also located at the top of the case, servicing the power supply fan.

The rear of the case reveals some interesting aspects. It uses an upside-down motherboard layout which SilverStone is known for, the power supply form factor is SFX rather ATX, and only the right side panel is removable.

The case feet are incredibly shallow but as there are no air vents on the bottom, it doesn't really matter. The two visible screws help secure the drive cage inside.

The door swings open right to left with a 180 degree range of motion. On the left side are a pair of USB 3.0 and mic/line-out ports, power and reset buttons, and power and hard drive activity LEDs. The right side is reserved for the removable drive caddies.

The drive trays use a simple squeeze and pull method of removal.
