Closer Look – Interior Cont.
As mentioned the hard drive trays are compatible with both 3.5″ and 2.5″ drives and to make use of this feature it is as easy as opening them up or, lifting the clip and sliding them shut.
The little secrets I was on about was the hard drive trays are totally removable, allowing access to the front fans and giving room to install a 240mm radiator in the front of the case. It is also easy enough to change the size of the hard drive cages depending on which size hard drives you will need them to accommodate.
A closer look at the 8 backside expansion slots.
A look at the front side of the back Silencio FP 120 fan and the 3 water cooling tube holes. Also if you take a look above the cooler cutout in the motherboard tray you will notice some more cable management options for the top of the motherboard.
As mentioned there is room for a 240mm in the top of the case. What I like about this is not only is there a removable cover on the outside of the case if we want to take advantage of this, there room for the radiator is also sectioned off to try and give users the most room possible and not obstruct access to the top of the motherboard.
Taking a look at the backside and we can see all the cable management options whether they be cutouts in the motherboard tray or hooks to clip zipties to. We can also notice the nice big cutout in the motherboard tray for easy CPU cooling switches and where the wires from the front IO panels are to help better plan our build accordingly.
There is a nice bit of room between the back of the motherboard tray and where the side panels will fit to further help with the cable management.
Installation in the Silencio 652S was a breeze and I personally enjoyed my time using it. There is plenty enough room for everything and plenty of places to hide wires and such out of the way. There was also more than enough room to easily install the Corsair H80i we use for testing temps.
