Cooler Master Silencio 550 Case Review
Manufacturer: Cooler Master
Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Cooler Master.Benchmark Reviews has as its subject today one dark and mysterious Cooler Master Silencio 550 Mid-Tower Case. The mysterious aspect of this new offering from the master craftsmen of computer cases at Cooler Master is the way the Cooler Master Silencio 550 is marketed: "Near silent operation and prepared to take on powerful hardware, the Cooler Master Silencio is able to keep high-end setups running cool and quiet." Since this case takes a maximum of three fans and is a Mid-Tower, I'm a little confused as to why Cooler Master chose this avenue of marketing. Moreover, it is advertised to support both the AMD 6990 and the nVidia 590 video cards, which are not only top end hardware, but also top end heat producers.
I'm always skeptical of marketing hype, so my first stop was the factory specs, and I found something refreshing: detailed factory measurements! I hope this becomes a standard, at least with non-budget cases. Giving us these measurements is a good sign that Cooler Master is listening to reviewers and enthusiasts, and that's always nice to know.
