Conclusion: This is a very nice case, it’s quite normal and with that I mean no real extra features and with a price of around 65$ there is not much to expect from it. Testing proved me wrong though, the case makes your setup very silent, the acoustic foam removes vibrations and excess noise.
Summary: The Cooler Master Sileo 500 Case is one of a few silent computer options. It has acoustic foam on both side panels, top and bottom. This means that the case is really quiet and it's an excellent option for anyone who requires a quiet computer system.
Excerpt: The Sileo 500 case is an exciting example of an inexpensive case that distinguishes itself from other cases in a few ways. First is the silent operation. Everything from the padded insulation on the sides, top, and bottom of the case is designed for quiet operation.
Conclusion: So the Sileo 500 is extremely silent, does a reasonable job of keeping the components cool. The redesigned drive retention brackets are a major improvement over the old design as far as vibration and noise is concerned.
Excerpt: The computer chassis, commonly referred to as the case, is the enclosure in which all of the components and drives are installed to make a personal computer. Cases differ in size and appearance but all perform the function of holding the computer’s internal parts.
Pros: Sturdy, very quiet, 2-120 mm fans included, front panel access, plenty of internal space, nice looking.
Cons: A better front panel attachment design would be nice, cable management could be made better.
Excerpt: While we were in Las Vegas for CES this last January we had the chance to see some of the new cases that CoolerMaster planned to release to US audience later in 2009. One of the case we saw and thought would be very appealing to the HTPC crowd is the CoolerMaster Sileo 500 case, one of the major...
Summary: The Coolermaster Sileo 500 Chassis is in my opinion, one of the most silent chassis you can buy on the market. Not surprising, as the chassis features an anti-vibration and screwless design, and comes with soundproof material installed.
Conclusion: O único problema com este gabinete é a fonte de alimentação que vem com ele. Portanto nosso selo “Produto Recomendado” está sendo dado somente para o gabinete, e não para o conjunto gabinete + fonte.
Excerpt: Når snakken går på kabinetter og køling, i det hele taget, går der ikke lang tid før man kommer omkring Cooler Master. Cooler Master er en af de største producenter af kabinetter i verden, og vi har fået endnu et kabinet fra Cooler Master til test.
Conclusion: Das Sileo 500 von Cooler Master präsentiert sich durch seine speziellen Silent-Features wie z.B. die entkoppelten Festplatten als optimales Office-Gehäuse. Durch die beiden großen und leisen 120mm Lüfter wird jedoch auch für Komponenten mit größerem Heizwert genügend Frischluft herbeigeführt.
