The Cooler Master Silencio 652S has been put through its paces and its now time to see how it matches up against the competition.
In terms of performance the Silencio 652S holds its own and does well when comparing to other cases we have previously reviewed. While the case is designed with whisper-quiet performance in mind, it has some great features to help allow for better airflow and cooling options that will of course help with the overall thermal performance.
Taking a look at the design and Cooler Master have put a lot of effort and thought into the Silencio 652S and it shows. Not only are the hard drive cages removable you can also convert them to be compatible with either 2.5″ or 3.5″ drives and the drive trays are easily converted to accommodate the same as well. It just takes the removal of a couple of screws, move some things to the side and put the screws back in, that’s it.
That is not where the fun stops though, oh no. Cooler Master also made this case more than compatible with water cooling. Removing the hard drive trays allows access to the front of the case where you could then install a 240mm radiator if desired. There is a nice sectioned off part in the top of the case for another 240mm radiator and wait for it, there is also room for a 120mm radiator in the back. This should allow for more than sufficient cooling for whatever hardware you may want to put inside the Silencio 652S.
The price, which is around £77 is about where we would expect it to be when comparing to somewhat similar cases from Nanoxia and Cooltek. The Silencio 652s offers good value for the money if for no other reason than all the features it comes with allowing users to customise the case to their liking in numerous different ways.
At the end of the day the Cooler Master Silencio 652S offers users a near silent operation with the advantage of having removable panels to help let some extra airflow in when needed. It also features plenty of support for water cooling and it’s sleek design is sure to go over well with most users. Little extras like the SD card reader and support for up to 10 SSDs should also not go overlooked. If you are looking for a black, quiet mid-tower case the Silencio 652S is worthy of being considered.
I would like to thank Cooler Master for sending the Silencio 652s in for review and look forward to seeing more from them in the future.
