Pretty much silent

Nicholas N., Newegg
7 June 2012
  • Summary: I can't stop looking at this case. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a case that's simple and silent.
  • Pros: The glossy piano-black front door on the Silencio 550 is gorgeous. It's clear that a lot of thought was put into the design of the case. Nothing looks gaudy or out of place. All buttons and jacks are easily accessible on the top of the case. The power and HDD LEDs are not blinding. It has a built...
  • Cons: Cable management is difficult, because of the limited space in the back panel, made even worse by the anti-noise foam padding. It's not as roomy as some other expensive cases. CM has added more holes and zip-tie spots since the case's release, which does help. My front panel audio jacks don't wor...

Great Case

Patrick M., Newegg
17 May 2012
  • Summary: All of this fits with tons of room and good air flow: i52500k ASRockZ77Extreme6 GTX580 16GB Corsair Vengeance 800W PSU
  • Pros: Beautiful case, nice and simple looking. Easy set up, good cable management, enough room for everything I need. Removable HDD cage for long GPUs. I put a GTX580 in mine with the HDD cage removed and could def fit a SLI/XFIRE configuration. Without HDD cage you still get 3 HDD cage slots. It comes...
  • Cons: None. (Haven't checked if my front audio panel is working but front USB is definitely working.)

Good for the price

Patrick F., Newegg
25 March 2012
  • Summary: There is foam padding on the front and side panels of the case, not the top or bottom. I'm really happy with this case. It's much quieter and roomier than my previous Lian-Li case I bought in 2007 during college.
  • Pros: Well laid out case with a lot of room to work in. The large hard-drive cage is removable for those extra long GPUs but my Sapphire 6870 fit with room to spare (eventually, I'd like to get one more for CrossFire). I like the layout of the ports on the front of the case: one USB 3, two USB 2, and a...
  • Cons: The foam padding on the side panel behind the mother board makes it a bit tight routing cables behind there. I had to make the cables pretty snug. If I had a modular power-supply it might have been easier. The foam padding on the panel facing the motherboard will go right up against large Air CPU...

Great case

Dale H., Newegg
22 March 2012
  • Summary: Built a friend a business oriented computer. Cooled an OC'ed q9650 with a hyper212 and a low end gpu and it remained cool and quiet.
  • Pros: Roomy, great looking, quiet. Lots of room for cables behind mobo tray, removeable hdd cage, black interior. Could be used for a gaming rig as long as the gpu's exhaust their heat out the back.
  • Cons: Comes with two 800 rpm fans, should come with three. Or better yet, two 800's in front and one 1000-1200 in the back. Had to buy somewhere else because Newegg wasn't carrying it yet.

User Review

  • Conclusion: So, what -is- more important when choosing a case? If the answer is eye candy and thermal performance, it’s best to look elsewhere. If it’s functionality, expandability and a quiet system that’s wrapped up into a sleek, unassuming enclosure, then this may be the one for you.

A good quiet case

D. Marsh, Amazon
29 April 2015
  • Summary: A good quiet case. I did replace the two fans for more efficient ones but expected to do this. The case has no jagged edges to catch you out and has an optionally removable 3.5" bay section which was welcomed.

Great

  • Excerpt: The case is actually far more attractive than it appears in the library pictures on the website. (total opposite of my ex-wife it has to be said). Quality of the build the features are great and the noise reduction systems is excellent, on par with my Fractal Design R4. Grab yourself a bargain.
