In the lab: Cooler Master's Silencio 652S quiet case


— 3:06 PM on November 26, 2014

Work is winding down ahead of the long weekend here at TR, but we're already all set for next week. At least, I am. I've just finished unpacking the Silencio 652S, a stealthy ATX mid-tower from Cooler Master:

The Silencio 652S has a nice assortment of noise-reducing features, including acoustic foam, plastic covers on the cooling vents, a foam-lined door at the front, and a trio of pre-mounted Silencio FP 120 fans. Cooler Master hasn't forgotten about enthusiast-friendly bells and whistles, either. There are dedicated 2.5" drive sleds, plenty of cut-outs in the motherboard tray, and mounts for beefy liquid-cooling setups, among other things.

The Silencio 652S isn't new in the strictest sense (Cooler Master first demoed it at CES earlier this year), but it definitely looks like an interesting option for a quiet mid-tower build. We're always on the lookout for new cases to recommend in our System Guide, so I'm eager to give the Silencio 652S a whirl.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
