Cooler Master Sileo 500 Mid Tower Case
Boasting sound-dampening foam, anti-vibration HDD mounts, and two silent-running 800RPM 120mm fans, the Sileo 500 is an interesting break from Cooler Master's usual chassis design. A long-time manufacturer of high-end gaming cases, it appears Cooler Master is now adding silent computing to their arsenal. Benchmark Review will take a closer look at the RC-500-KKR3-GP model and finds out if the Sileo 500 worthy of the name and your money.
The Cooler Master Sileo, can be found in two versions: one with a 500W power supply and one without. The RC-500-KKR3-GP model that we're testing today comes with the power supply and can be found at retailers for around $100. At that price, it's certainly not a budget case, but still not as expensive as some of Cooler Master's gaming cases. Over the next few pages, we'll examine the Sileo 500's appearance, features, and construction quality, as well as it's relative value at this price point.

The Sileo 500 also has tool-free 5.25" and 3.5" drive bays for easy installation and maintenance; a true testament to silent computing.
