         The Grandia GD05 is a follow-up of the incredible GD04 as a chassis that combines years of SilverStone expertise in SFF (Small form factor) and HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) designs. It has the same beautifully proportioned exterior and powerful thermal capability that rivals the best tower chassis. However, the front panel of the GD05 was designed to be more flexible so that its 325mm depth can be utilized in more places than just home theaters. Even though GD05’s diminutive size allows it to easily integrate into any home theater cabinet, it can still accommodate an impressive list of standard components such as 5.25” device, two 3.5” hard drives, a 2.5” SSD, a standard ATX power supply, and two high-end graphics cards up to 11 inches. Cooling duty in the GD05 is handled by three filtered 120mm fans designed with the same positive air pressure to enable class-leading cooling efficiency, reduced dust buildup, and silent operation. To make installation simpler, there is even enough space for cable management to be easily accomplished without the need for short cabled or modular power supply. Coupled with special attention given to the order of installation, any user can quickly assemble or upgrade the GD05 with a small and powerful PC system.

The TS03 supports slim optical drive to reduce the depth required in the 5.25” optical drive bay. It can increase the space for CPU cooler in the GD05. The limitations of installing NT06-E into the GD05 are as follow:

  1. Horizontal orientation of CPU cooler on the motherboard.

    The distance from CPU to motherboard edge.

  2. Vertical orientation of CPU cooler on the motherboard.

The distance from CPU to motherboard edge.

The above limitations apply only if graphics card is installed in the first expansion slot and with rear 80mm fans installed.
If fans are removed, y distance decreases by 25mm
If graphics card is installed in the second expansion slot, the x distance increases by 20mm

Installation guide

  1. Install the NT06-E on the motherboard.

  2. Insert a slim optical drive into the TS03.

  3. Install the motherboard into the chassis.

  4. Install and secure the TS03 in the 5.25” drive bay.

  5. Connect the wires and cables to the TS03.

  6. Install a 120mm fan over the NT06-E as needed.


1. Loosen three screws located on the back of GD05 and detach top-cover gently.

2. Loosen four screws located on hard drive bracket and detach it gently.

3. Loosen two screws near front I/O module and detach it gently.

4. Install USB 3.0 front I/O module (part number: G11303260) and secure with screws.

5. Assemble parts back in reverse order carefully. Your case is now USB3 ready.
