From the start, we found the SETA A1 to be a pretty standard mid-tower ATX case. Taking the front panel and 200mm fans out of the equation, you have a case that could easily be mistaken for any of the other current-gen cases out on the market. That doesn’t mean that the SETA A1 is a bad case by any means, its just to say that it is falling in line with today’s design and function trends. Now don’t get us wrong, the aluminum front panel with its back-lit ARGB glow does look pretty cool and adds a bit of style to the case. And the two 200mm front fans are a cool feature when compared to your standard 120mm fans typically found up front.
Our system installation process was pretty straightforward, with no real issues encountered at any point. All of our components fit within their respective spaces, and SilverStone allows for full sized components to easily fit within this case. Cable management options are plentiful, and though there isn’t a ton of space to work with behind the motherboard tray, we had no problems getting everything to fit nicely, especially after removing the unused 3.5″ drive trays.
Overall the SilverStone SETA A1 brings a few unique aesthetic and functional features to the mid-tower ATX case realm in the form of a large aluminum facade and 200mm fans. Aside from that however, this is a pretty ordinary case. Adding these features up, as well as the inclusion of two ARGB light strips and a controller, and you have a pretty solid offering, currently being offered at our favorite online retailer for $126.13. Altogether the SilverStone SETA A1 is a solid offering in a crowded market segment, and earns an 8 out of 10.
