Introduction

Since 2013, we've reviewed over three dozen cases, including many of the most popular, best-selling mini-ITX cases ever released. And among the great pioneers in the ITX market is without a doubt SilverStone, which has released more mini-ITX cases than any other manufacturer. In fact, this is actually our ninth review of a SilverStone ITX case, and we've only scratched the surface of SilverStone's ITX product catalog! With its new ML10, which we're reviewing here, SilverStone pushes the limits, creating its smallest ITX case ever, and likely the smallest ITX case we will ever see! But what's it like to use and how does it perform? That's what we aim to find out!

Special thanks to SilverStone for providing us a sample of the SilverStone ML10 Mini-ITX Chassis.

Conclusion

SilverStone's ML10 may be a sign of great things to come, but in its current form, we recommend it only to seasoned PC builders. And that's a shame, because in theory it could be a great option for those looking to put together a low-cost family or home office PC. It may become that in the future, but due to the lack of power supply options from SilverStone, the wattage constraints of the units that are available, and the problematic thermal performance of this chassis, it's not a good choice for first-time builders.

Overall, the ML10 has potential, and we think that future revisions will fine-tune the formula to make the ML10 easier to use and a better match for current CPU options. With that said, as long as you know what you're getting into, feel free to purchase the SilverStone ML10 Mini-ITX Chassis for $59.99 from Amazon with free shipping.
