Cooler Master Silencio 550 tested - 6. Conclusion

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Sound Proof Me

Cooler Master Silencio 550 was extremely quiet throughout our testing and it was definitely true to its name. It comes with two silent fans and sound isolation foam inside the case.
Cooler Master once again delivered a quality product. This time however, the company focused on making a quiet and stylish case, rather than focusing on cooling performance. 
We must say that two fans are not enough for Silencio 550 and we’d advise you to strap it with another fan on the front panel as soon as possible. On the other hand, the case is pretty good in containing noise, our testing revealed that Silencio 550 remains quiet regardless of loudness of a graphics card.
Silencio 550 goes for €79 after VAT, same as CM 690 II Advanced or Enforcer cases. The offer itself offers plenty of variety and is down to personal preference. If you’re looking to build a quiet and unobtrusive rig, then Silencio 550 will be a great start.
