Scythe Silent Box

InsaneTek

  • Summary: Scythe has outdone itself with the Silent Box. The Silent Box is plain and simple. It decreased noise with cooling technology that provided temperatures just a hair away. Even though the temperatures were so close, the hardware might deteriorate faster with higher temperatures. Active cooling fans that can be installed on the hard drive only create more noise, while the Heatlane technology does not. The only downside about this product is mini-ATX case compatibility.
  • Pros: Reduced noise, Supports SATA/IDE cables, Provides a SATA power transformer
  • Cons: Small yet acceptable increase of temperature, Price tag

Silent Box

  • Excerpt: One of the main challenges to system builders is noise and heat generated from systems. Nowadays, users are always complaining about heat and noise from systems. The problem lies with that the fact, if you add fans, the noise level increases but heat level drops. The vice versa is true too.

Scythe Silent Box

  • Conclusion: Mit der Silent Box haben Scythe ein sehr überzeugendes Produkt kreiert. Die Kombination aus einem beinahe komplett Gummigehäuse und der Heatlanekühlung scheint bestens zu funktionieren. Die Platte ist nicht nur unhörbar leise sondern wird auch noch kühl gehalten. Einzig, dass keine gerundeten Kabel verwendet werden können kratzen an der blanken Weste der Silent Box.
  • Pros: Top Verarbeitung, Lieferumfang, Temperatur, Zugriffszeit, Lautstärke
  • Cons: keine Verwendung von gerundeten Kabel möglich, Preis
