    Swiss cooling solution manufacturer ARCTIC COOLING launched today a new line of thermodynamic Silentium T Pro PC cases. As its predecessor (Silentium), the new Silentium T Pro’s revolutionary design introduces a radical thermodynamic concept which does not follow the traditional ATX standard. Air flow directions in the Silentium T Pro have been completely rearranged. Two pre-installed 80mm and one 120mm temperature controlled Arctic Fans together with a rearranged PSU position dramatically enhances the ventilation and lower the noise level of the PC case. Also hard disk noise and vibration are eliminated by encapsulating them into specially designed absorbers. The Silentium T Pro series is available now in 5 different front panel configurations equipped with AX-500F ATX 12V 2.0 power supply which has excellent efficiency of up to 80%. The MSRP is USD 149 and Euro 119 (excl VAT).

    i admit that the thermal design looks really awkward, but i own the predecessor of that case and it works out quite well imo, since i experience VERY acceptable temperatures combined with almost no noise from both fans + HDDs... the only major drawback is the proprietary psu (i have yet to find a way to mount a regular aftermarket psu :shadedshu ), but the seasonic that came with it will still be sufficient for some time.

    overall i really can´t complain.

    I don't understand. They assume that the air will not rise up in the case? Wtf? So the bottom part must be separated from the top part.

    you´re right, they see the gfx card dividing the case, and the heat created by it gets sucked out by the psu fan (psu is mounted bottom front).

    ^^ the old silentiums were 75€ incl. psu... not a bad deal imo, try getting a half-decent case +
    half-decent psu for less than 100€...

    Actually it doesnt look too bad. The only thing is, how do they know the hot and cold air will flow that way? Do they use channels or something?

    well,...
    hot air rises, and fans sucks air, so i think there's no need for air tunnels

    think of that with an accelero VGA cooler and it makes more sense - it'd go ass backwards if your VGA card exhausted out the rear (looks like a BTX design)
