Last year, Silverstone released the Lucid LD03, a slender micro tower swathed in dark tempered glass. Like its inspirationâ€”the companyâ€™s popular FT03, which came out in 2011â€”this mini-ITX case both rotates the motherboard by 90 degrees and vents air out the top.
Now Silverstone has followed up with the LD03-AF, a second-generation version that sports a key update in response to feedback on the first model. As youâ€™ll see in our video above, one of the caseâ€™s three tempered-glass panels has a cutout to improve air flow around the graphics card and address concerns about GPU temperature. In theory, this addition should help lower temperatures by allowing a graphics cardâ€™s fans to draw in cool air from outside the case.
