Quoted from Cooler Master Silencio 650 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Cooler Master Silencio 650 reviews & previews
"The Silencio 650 leaves a splendid impression, Cooler Master has delivered a case with fine aesthetics, excellent build quality and whisper-quiet performance. I highly recommend this case to people who're looking for a silent mid-tower case capable of cooling high-end hardware. Due to the focus on silence, the cooling capabilities of this case aren't top notch, but still more than adequate for most enthusiast configurations that aren't heavily overclocked. The biggest downside perhaps is the somewhat limited room for cable management behind the motherboard tray and the lack of space for a dual-radiator watercooler. The official MSRP of 129EUR is rather high, but the Silencio 650 can already be found for around 105EUR, which is a good price for a case with this type of build quality and great set of features and functionality."
"This would make a great (and silent) HTPC build, for those that don’t want to go down the M-ITX route, with the addition of the HDD boot switch allowing you to dual boot from separate hard drives at the flick of a switch, such as one drive with Linux for media centre, one with Windows for everything else, what ever takes your fancy. Its little touches like the drive switch, the delicate attention to detail on what at first seems like a flat slab of metal, the heavy duty sound proofing and of course the fact it performs more than well enough to justify its £110 price tag, which is why I am happy to award the Silencio 650 our Editors Choice Award."
"For a general enthusiast grade system build, the Silencio 650 has many features to recommend it, primarily the extremely low level of noise emissions. It will certainly appeal to people who want to build a capable, yet silent system. There is also the option to swap out the fans for slightly more powerful units, if you wish to try your hand at some higher level overclocking."
"If you are looking for a silent case with decent cooling capabilities and need some of the features mentioned here then the CM Silencio 650 might be just the case for you. However if some features/gimmicks are not a must, then better look for another and maybe cheaper alternative."
"Cooler Master takes a different approach to the 100+ Euro silent chassis. While other manufacturers aim to offer flexibility between air flow and silence, the Silencio 650 offers an extensive feature set with a few unique aspects. The Aluminum front cover is something some may have come to expect from a silent case of this price class, but things like the SDHC card reader and fan controller are by no means standard. On top of that the unique system drive selector is something you will not find in any other silent cases, which makes the use of dual OS configuration possible without the need of partitioning a single drive. On top of that, the Silencio 650 manages to deliver a great assembly experience, plenty of space and good cable routing possibilities. At first sight, the Silencio 650 may not look like much, with other silent enclosures simply looking more menacing or "out there", but in terms of features, the case manages to impress and justify the price tag - even if it does not quite offer the flexibility between silence and air flow as other silent cases, while giving customers the possibility to grab the much cheaper 550D if those extras are unwanted."
