Up Close:  Exterior Overview and Roof

Measuring just 200 x 378 x 453mm (WxHxD) the 352 is a petite little thing especially when compared to the more fuller frame of the Prodigy for example, being smaller than the Prodigy in every respect other than depth.

The classy lines of the Silencio series can clearly be seen, with there being little doubt that this case is not intended for the "balls out" gaming sector of the market, but that's not to say you're not going to be able to get a powerful rig in there.  The lines are simple and clean with un-windowed side panels and a full length door on the front.

There are slight bulges in each of the side panels, in part we think to aid rigidity, but also perhaps to provide a little more cable management room of the right hand side.

The roof of the 352 has a  smooth plastic removable cover overlaying a filtered mesh grill which is fitted for a 120mm fan.  Held in place by magnets the cover can be easily popped off enabling improved cooling at the expense of an increase to the sonic signature.

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 reviewQuote

Thanks for the review!
Looks like a great case. Did not see the review before ordering a SilverStone SST-TJ08T-E just now; but in any case I think that one should also be on the short-list for midi-towers. No front panel door though. I do like the clean look of those. Not quite sure the do anything soundwise though (at least not on my old, beloved LianLi PC-6070A) - but they definitely do not help the airflow!Quote
