Overall, the Silencio 550 is a solid casing and a worthy flagship of the Silent series. It looks classy; is sufficiently spacious for a chassis of its size and price; and lastly, we also appreciate its tool-free design, which made it very easy to...

Without being real innovative in design, this Silencio 550 is a very fine case. Sporting adequate airflow, thanks to the two preinstalled 120mm fans. Dust buildup is no issue, as the front fan(s) and the PSU fan got quick removable dust filters. The...

Final Words & Conclusion The Silencio is a nicely thought through chassis, it's nothing new in terms of new technologies though. That's said, it's by far sufficient enough for what it needs to accomplish. You can house a fairly high-end selection of...

Silencio 550 ChassisI reviewed the HAF 912 Advanced Case from Cooler Master a few months ago and I must admit that this chassis left me gobsmacked. Even today, the HAF 912 is still doing a marvellous job, especially at catching dust and being rather...

As its name suggests, Cooler Master's Silencio 550 is all about minimising noise. The inner panel walls are foam padded. The front panel gets some sound-proofing treatment too. And the dust filter for the two 120mm front fans mutes internal whirring...

The Silencio 550 chassis has a classy look with sleek lines throughout the chassis and a mirror finished front panel. The build quality is good and lives up to Cooler Master’s reputation. The sound deadening material on the doors does a very good job...

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...

When I mention the Cooler Master Silencio 550, the first thing that comes to mind is probably the movie "Mulholland Drive". In the film, there is an eerie theater by the name of Club Silencio. Actually, that is about all I can tell you, because as...

Let's get the obvious out of the way: Cooler Master's Silencio 550 claims to be prepared to take on powerful hardware, but in our experience it struggles to cope with a high-end Core i7 980X processor and a Radeon HD 6970 graphics card. Stress-testing...

The Cooler Master Silencio 550 is a great mid-tower case. The classy, minimalist design of the outside really looks great. The easy to use hot-swap bay is a good addition to the Silencio, making it more versatile and reaching a wider variety of...

While this case isn’t perfect, it’s taken a bit of a different take from most cases that we review here, so it’s caught my attention. The truly silent angle is a nice one and with the tweaks Coolermaster have pledged to make, this is turning into one...

The Cooler Master 550 Silencio uses a Mid-Tower case and insulated front and side panels to sound dampen noise. The insulation is dense and seals the case well. You can only mount a total of three 120mm fans in the case, but for all but the hottest...

It seems that quite a few cases have been released recently and while this might seem a bit repetitive it does at least allow us to compare the cases quite well.Today's case is the Cooler Master Silencio 550 Chassis which is trying to be slightly...

As we expected, Cooler Master has created another quality product in the Silencio 550. Starting with the build quality we have a case which feels extremely solid thanks to its steel body and firm panels. Even though the outer packaging took a bit of...

Cooler Master today officially launches Silencio 550 computer case. As the name suggests, the case is built for silence but not the kind that will empty your pockets. Silencio 550 comes with two quiet fans. Side panels and the front panel are...

So Cooler Master have a new chassis, it really doesn't seem very new to us here as the case has been with us for weeks now, thanks to this extra time we had before the NDA release it has given many of us in the OC3D office a chance to have a play and...

Consumers, users, buyers, or whichever term you want to use, are getting ever pickier about their PC components (those of us that still prefer hardware retailers to supermarkets, at least). They’re much better informed than they used to be, and that...
