Love the Silent case. Quality build case..
This is a terrific case for a quiet and nice looking system. I gave only four stars however because the case is a little too small for the cooling options that Corsair says are compatible with it -- namely the Corsair H100i v. 2 which is a very popular 240mm solution. What Corsair doesn't tell you is that the 100 only fits if you modify the factory layout of the case in such a way that an additional part is probably required. Specifically, you have to either put The 100i radiator at the top which requires removal of the sound dampening magnetic top (a nice feature if you can use it) and purchasing the top dust filter from the 400C from Corsair ($10 on the website) or you move the large quiet frontside fan and place it at the top (requiring the same modification as before). I would not recommend removing the large fan completely if you want to overclock and besides you've paid for it and it's a nice feature (very quiet!). The 100i would only fit "upside down" in the front due to built in case wiring requiring the hose to run from the bottom to the top of the case and wend around the front of the video card touching it but hopefully doing no damage. So if you want a 240mm radiator cooler don't get this case, or if you get this case the 120mm radiator version.
Could be my fault, but the cables did not all fit in the space behind the motherboard where they are intended to be kept out of the way. There just isn't much space back there.
Beautiful, clean and silent case.
One of the reasons I don't give it 5 stars is the plastic SSD cage you need to use to mount the drives on the back of the motherboard. The springs were too strong originally so the drives weren't held in place. I cut the springs and that helped but the plastic thingies that suppose to hold drive in place seemed very unreliable to me. So I made a custom SSD cage from a piece of aluminium and screwed it in place of the plastic cage.
Exactly what I was looking for. Good build construction, small form factor, removable shroud and modular HDD caddy, fits everything with good airflow. No problem fitting the Noctua D15. It could have a few mm more for cable management but can easily work with it.
A "basic" case, but with a lot of room to work with in. Cable management is a pleasure to do there, even if straps (like Phantek's one) would be a really nice addition for better cable management.
Keep in mind that there is very little room for the PSU and its cables, since the drives bay is right next to them.
Compact, simple, and high quality case. Cable management behind the back panel is a bit of a trick as there isn't a lot of room, but it is possible.
