Cooler Master unveiled its Silencio 352 micro-ATX case for gaming PC builds. Its design focuses on minimizing noise, with sound absorbing material lining most of its panels, including the piano black door that covers its front. Measuring 200 x 378 x 453 mm (WxHxD), and dry-weighing about 4.7 kg, the case is made of SECC steel and an unknown "polymer." Effort is made to make sure the drive cages don't get in the way of long graphics cards. The case can handle graphics cards as long as 35 cm, so a Radeon HD 7990 should have no problem fitting in. You get one 5.25-inch drive bay, three 3.5-inch bays, and a total of four 2.5-inch bays. Cooling system includes two 120 mm front intakes, a top 120 mm exhaust, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. The case was shown housing a micro-ATX Core i7 Sandy Bridge-E build, complete with a liquid CPU cooler, a longer than usual modular PSU, a GeForce GTX 670 graphics card, and a couple of 2.5-inch SSDs, all without looking stuffy.
