The Cooler Master Sileo 500 ($99.99 list) is a desktop case designed with sound-reducing aluminum material, packing a 500W power supply and tool-free installation and upgrading. The chassis also sports an easily accessible front I/O panel, detachable...

For less than $80 without power supply you can have a real good looking case in the Coolermaster Sileo 500. Add in another $30 or so you can opt for the power supply. With or without the power supply the Sileo is a really attractive case. The front...

The Cooler Master Sileo 500 is a very well done example of sound and vibration management by addressing the source of the noise. Some things could have been handled better such as rubber mounting the case fans or providing sound damping latches to...

Video Review: 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...

The Sileo 500 arrived in Cooler Masters signature white and purple box with full color graphics and detailed specifications. Cooler Master also maintains an excellent website to showcase their products and provide support. I did, however, have...

This is a very nice case, its 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...

Overall this case is a great silent mid tower chassis. While I wouldnt recommend it for 4X SLI and other crazy installations, I do think this case would be great for anyone looking for a mid tower case that keeps quiet. It offers a very easy,...

The Sileo 500 Chassis series case by Cooler Master is a great product for me. I love open room when installing a motherboard. It really makes your life easy when there are no metal bars blocking the installation of your motherboard. I know there are...

If, as they say, silence is golden, then Cooler Master chose the wrong color for their Sileo 500 computer case. As this review shows, the Sileo is clearly up to the task of keeping even the most demanding hardware comfortably cool, and doing it at...

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...

As it turns out, the Sileo is pretty darn quiet for several reasons. For starters, the fans included with the system are about as quiet as youll find included with any case. Newbies just getting into the silencing game wont notice them, and...

Taking price out of the equation we find that Cooler Master has a very solid and feature rich product in the Sileo 500. The sound dampening mats on four sides coupled with rubber contact points for HDD rails and the power supply show that Cooler...

When we sum up our impressions and experience with Cooler Master Sileo 500 we can only conclude that it offers so much for a price tag around 75€. This chassis is, above all, very quiet even if you have noisy CPU or graphics card fan (cooler). This...

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. The styling of the case is a...

So, wait, is this case a black hole for noise? Nope. Sorry to say, but a little foam isnt going to hold back the jackhammer sounds of components poorly selected. It will take the edge off the minimal sounds of well-selected hardware, though. This...

With the motherboard and all the components install in the CoolerMaster Sileo 500 case you can see that there is still a large area in which to work with. Our motherboard is an ESC 570-Split A with Intel 6750 processor. The fan we have mounted...

In working with the Cooler Master Sileo 500, I was utterly blown away by how well the sound dampening material works. Being the defining feature of this case, I can attest to the fact that the sound dampening material really sets this case apart from...

So what did I think? I thought this case was great. For the low price this case is a great buy, if used right. Currently I have two PCs, one that I use for my benchmarks, and one that I use as a media center. There is no doubt in my mind that gamers...

The Cooler Master Sileo 500 case ended up being one of the quietest cases I have ever used. The Sileo 500 has a simple look with great features and great quality. The only thing I really would have changed would be the paint. For some reason it just...
