    Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, power supply, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, today adds a new sibling to the Silencio 550, the Silencio 450.

    The Silencio Series represents the best solution for sound absorption with system builds of all levels. Sound silencing foam padding seeks to severely reduce system noises produced by hard drives, numerous cooling fans, and other devices. Combine this with a solid-steel frame, vibration inhibiting rubber feet, two Cooler Master quiet-spinning fans and the Silencio 450 nearly becomes completely silent. Those that value a quiet computing space will immensely appreciate the Silencio Series.

    Intelligent Interior
    Look beyond the modest exterior of the Silencio 450 to find a clean, intuitive, and spacious interior. Three 5.25”, six 3.5”, and one 2.5” hard drive bay are set inside a solid steel frame. An easily-removable hard drive cage allows users to mix and match various hard drives for maximum flexibility and drive space. Removal of the included hard drive cage opens the door for the possibility of installing high-end graphics cards such as the AMD Radeon HD 6990 or NVIDIA GTX 590. Super Speed, backwards-compatible USB 3.0 and a versatile SD card reader provides users with several ways to connect data on-the-fly. A surprisingly efficient intake-exhaust cooling system throughout the interior provides for maximum airflow. Dust filters protect precious system components from potentially dangerous dust build-up over time. These can be accessed quickly for easy maintenance. Users taking the next step in silent cooling may opt for a custom watercooling setup. The Silencio 450 includes rear retaining holes that support optional water cooling radiator installations.

    A switchable door hinge creates an added level of convenience as well. A clean exterior design, brimming with features and reasonable price make the Silencio 450 the perfect silent partner for any enthusiast.

    The Silencio 450 will be available for 59€ MSRP.

    For more information, refer to the datasheet.

    Agreed. For me it's the stupid central I/O ports. That was a dumb move. They should have had them at the top and then a Coolermaster logo/power button in the middle.

    nice concept but i feel this case not interesting, looks flat
    no accent at all, and the i/o ports looks pretty plastic
    why they put that there? not at the top or side of the case

    The front doesn't contrast well at all. Instead of salty and sweet we're getting a mix that doesn't taste quite right.

    I'd like to see more cases take USB/audio/card readers off the top/side/front altogether and give us an external unit that we can place where we will.

    The front is too plain, but I suspect that the case would look much better in person.

    I agree with some other posters; the I/O panel should have been at the top front of the bezel instead of the middle. A removable one would be interesting though (it could be used as internal or external).

    This comes as a little bit of surprise.

    They removed half the HD bay to fit the GPU in there. :p

    It's a nice feature to have in a case, you must admit though! Being able to remove the HDD bay to fit a long GPU, yet still have slots for HDDs! Smart. :)

    Not the best looking case, but it's a pretty solid offering.

    Price is not bad but that plain looking front is a real turn off.

    not to sound mean or anything, but this case looks like it has the wrong number of chromosomes.

    Nice, I think I've found my new case. I like cases with doors but most of them have the "front" panel at the top of the case and since I have the case on my desk it'd be quite unconfortable, specially with gamepads and my phone dock. The only exception I've found was the Scythe Gekko which has the I/O ports at the side.

    This is perfect for me. Thank you, Cooler Master! Now, please release it in Mexico ASAP. :respect:
