CoolerMaster Silencio 352 Review

 

Introduction

With m-ATX and to some extent Mini-ITX motherboards becoming ever more powerful and as a result more popular and mainstream, it necessarily follows that the discerning PC enthusiast is going to be looking for an enclosure that best suits their needs.  In recent months we've looked at both the original and the latest "Pure" version of the CoolerMaster Silencio 650 line up, and we've been well impressed with them.  Although these cases will take an m-ATX case, they're far from being small form factor.  Enter then the Silencio 352, an SFF case with more than a few aces up it's sleeve.

A small form factor case with 240mm rad support and noise dampening! This has got to be worth a look.

I wonder if any sound isolation can be done for the backside...there are a few silent cases like this now, none of them offered sound dampening for the backside fan just a thought , add a dampening panel like the 1 in front to the backside and graphic card exhaust while leaving the Io plate alone, I'd throw out my switch 810 in a heartbeat for that....
Anyways thanks for the review
