The Silencio 550: In case you need silence

Merging style and silence with strength, Cooler Master ushers in a new era of silent towers by introducing their newest case: The Silencio 550. Enveloped in a cool-black steel case, this new case holds the capacity to support the most demanding computing configuration. Fronted by a mirrored high-gloss panel, the finish is enriched with the class and elegance only embraced by Cooler Master products.

Runs quietly

The dominating part of the Silencio 550 is, as the name already suggests, the very low sound it produces when the case is turned on. Insulated with silencing foam padding internally on both sides cancels the noise made by the slight reverberations of the fans and the whirrs and clicks of hard drives. Combine this with a solid-steel unshakable frame, shiftless rubber feet and two Cooler Master low noise fans and you will get a chassis which you will hardly hear when it is on; perfect for those who value peace and quiet as a must in the computing environment.

Contains everything you need

Beneath the Silencio 550’s slick exterior lies a clean, intuitive, spacious interior. Three 5.25”, seven 3.5”, one 2.5” hard drive bays, set inside a solid steel, easily-removable hard drive cage allows computer enthusiasts to mix and match various hard drives for flexibility and maximum drive space. Behind the clean finish of the front panel hides an external hot-swappable drive bay for those essential quick changes on the fly. Merging this slot with the lightning-quick, backwards-compatible USB 3.0 port and a versatile SD card reader provides the users with plenty of options to store and load any type of data. A surprisingly efficient intake-exhaust cooling system completes the expansive interior for maximum airflow and if this is not sufficient in those hot environments, the Silencio 550 includes rear retaining holes for an additional water cooling kit.

Full of options and aesthetics, and at a more than reasonable price, this chassis tower is the perfect silent partner for any enthusiast.
