SilverStone Launches ALTA F1 Chassis
SilverStone introduces its latest premium chassis – the SilverStone ALTA F1. The ALTA F1 has been in the making for more than a year, a prototype has been demonstrated at CES 2020. The ALTA F1 features an aluminum shell and a 90° motherboard mounting orientation and features a layout that’s seen in some of the brand’s older RAVEN series cases. The Stack Effect Design of the chassis creates a smooth and direct airflow from bottom to top which is deemed the most efficient cooling for heat dissipation given that heated air naturally rises on top.
The SilverStone ALTA F1 comes with three 140mm Air Penetrator cooling fans delivering superb cooling out of the box. The chassis have excellent cooling support, supporting up to three 120mm or 140mm fans at the bottom and another three on top. An extra 120mm fan can also be mounted at the rear for additional exhaust. For liquid cooling hardware support, the ALTA F1 can accommodate up to 360mm radiators on the top and at the bottom. The case has flexible cooling options for both air-cooling and liquid cooling.
The SilverStone ALTA F1 sports a very aesthetic top aluminum panel with ventilation holes. The case has large bottom intake vents on the side and not at the bottom. The bottom intake vents have removable dust filters for easy cleaning and maintenance. The bottom panel of the chassis is solid and comes with small rubber feet.
The SilverStone ALTA F1 chassis is offered in Silver and Black colors, both with a tempered glass side panel.
