ARCTIC introduces two new products into the computer hardware market today – PC case, Silentium T11 and hard-drive cooler, ARCTIC HC01-TC. These products are an ideal combination for users to build a computer on their own, given that these new products are well-made in terms of their durability and functionality.

Choosing a well-made chassis for computer core components is an initial and critical decision for computer builders. A chassis nowadays is more than just a skeleton to provide structure for the components, it should also be a framework that allows good and silent cooling, and have a stylish appearance at the same time. The new chassis, ARCTIC Silentium T11, contains all the superior qualities that any computer users may look for. This series is affordable, yet offering exceptional durability, expandability and accessibility to users.

This is like a dream come true. I was on the look for a good case, but not that expensive. Eagerly looking forward to it, hope to see it closer in Romania.

Edit: Blah. Case=50$. Better stuff at that price point. I thought that the case is 17.95E... was in a hurry and got too excited.

Indeed, not impressive at all, sorry, another fail by Arctic :(
I mean, who in their right mind buys a case with a top mounted PSU these days?

I could maybe understand that HDD cooler, if the fan would be a wide radial type, something like this.

I have a table fan with that design and it's very powerful, but doesn't make much noise.

But that tiny whiner... :slap:

Well that fan on the hard drive cooler looks like it will suck, and not in the way I'll want it to. All I can see it doing it making a heck of a din, the little whiny thing. I can't see that matching ACs normal policy of making nice quiet stuff.

The case does look old school like some of the old beige boxes; but it also looks pretty cool too. Its functional on a high level. Sure, top mounted PSUs might not work for most folks, but the heat it puts out, its not a bad spot. I prefer the bottom mounted psus myself. One thing I have a question about with this case: If the 2 front fans pull in cool air and the back fan (which is normally exhaust) pulls in cool air for the CPU and then there is a side duct/fan combo to direct "fresh" air on the GPU, where the hell does all the warm/hot air go? Other than that, I like the case and would purchase it for a quiet/good cooling performance combo, provided there is a way for heat to exhaust.

those PC cases kinda remind me of the early early PCs that were only available in Micro-ATX (PII-PIII Era) except their in sliver/black and silver/white instead of the 1 tone beige.

This has me thinking of a new mod. Maybe I could make custom vents that lead from one of my front fans directly to the GPU.

Would that be a good idea, I think I could pull it off.

In a time when poor product launches can kill a company, Arctic announce too complete rubbish products.

Case looks 5 years behind the times, although one thing to not is the front intake fan blowing directly onto the GPU area. Because of bottom mounted PSU's, the usual front intake fan only blows on the back of the PSU. (hence an increase in side fans on recent cases)

Hard drive cooler is something from over 5 years ago. Good passive coolers are fine for hard drives now a days, and with SSD drives becoming more popular, there will be little demand for hard drive coolers and silencers.

Personally I am waiting for the follow up to the Lancool K62. I want a new case like that, but with USB 3 front sockets (top ) and slightly larger so it take take a internal fan that can blow directly over the GPU area - much like the design in the new HAF X.

I guess not everyone is like Corsair and does their homework before releasing a product into the market.
