Silverstone LD03-AF ITX Case Review ld03 af 34right

Silverstone’s LD03 impressed us with its unique design and practical construction when it first launched in late 2019.  Silverstone hasn’t been idle since then however and launched the LD03-AF, an updated version of the LD03 that focuses on airflow for more power-hungry components that would have overheated in the original LD03.  We have the LD03-AF on the test bench and will be taking a look at the new LD03-AF to see what updates Silverstone has made, and whether or not they improve on the original case.  You can find our review of the original LD03 here: Silverstone LD03
