SilverStone Redline Series RL05 Chassis Review: Page 6 of 6

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Enthusiasts and even average users today are really keen in having a neat and visually appealing setup. Also, having a functional case with helpful features is also preferred. In balancing all these demands, we find the SilverStone Redline Series RL05 chassis pretty much an ideal solution without being too hefty for your budget. Having the USB 3.0 Type-C port will help you future-proof your computer for future and existing devices that use the Type-C USB port. I also like the fact that it also offers the ‘old-school’ 5.25-inch ODD bay solution.

When it comes to aesthetics, the LED fans that come with the chassis are good for LED lighting enthusiasts and the huge acrylic window will spark your creativity in making the interiors looks good whether it’s neat cabling and installation or with the use of fancy lighting and custom water cooling. The SilverStone RL05 offers a good balance of aesthetics and function at a very reasonable price. Cooling performance and cooling hardware support is superb as well. At a price of $59.99 at Amazon for the same model with reviewed which has the Black and Black front (RL05BB-W), I find it hard to beat such offerings from SilverStone. If you want a more aggressive look with the Black and Red front and LEDs, you can find the RL05BR-W model for $69.99 at Amazon.
