    Re: Cooler Master Silencio 652S

    I'm somewhat surprised the Carbide 300R wasn't in the comparison. As I own it myself, this case seems to be a very slightly more feature rich version for a slightly higher price and therefore I may use it if I have any other builds in the near future. Easy enough to go look at benchmarks from previous reviews however, but seems like an interesting contender for this comparison even if it isnt necessarily aimed at being a quiet case.

    Its about time they change the standard for power cables in PC's. Surely they can get the power to motherboard in a much smaller cluster of cables.

    I totally agree. Technology has advanced far enough for them to consider more efficient cabling for PCs. The motherboard has been powered by the same type of ATX cable since the 90s (correct me if I'm wrong)

    The main problem with the mATX Silencio 352 is lack of space behind the tray for cabling, other than that it's a great case for the money. Why the hell didn't they fix this for it's bigger brother?

    Out of interest, have you used the case? (warning, rant inbound) I had a PC in one a while ago, I thought it was a pretty poor attempt at a quiet case. The front intake's grill is pretty loud, cutting the metal honeycomb out made the case much more silent. Also, opening the front door dropped my GPU temperatures by 10C at load, meaning the fans could run slower and quieter. The hard drive rack blocked all of the air from one of the intake fans, meaning it had to be on a higher speed (not that the cage was a silence decision, just poor design). From my impressions, more or less every measure they took to make it quieter, did the opposite. With the exception of the sound dampening material, which was so thin it probably just worked to absorb any vibrations in the case structure, rather than block fan noise. There's also the fan mount on the floor, which couldn't be used when I had a PSU which was 160mm in (a fairly standard length). Oh, and the fan filter didn't filter anything, it was so coarse.

    Sorry for the rant ^^

    Not personally, a friend has one and loves it, but to be fair it's not exactly a powerhouse in there, non -K and 760.

    Re: Cooler Master Silencio 652S

    It's easy to fix that - the chassis is the CM690 III but with different side, top and front panels fitted. Get the bulged panel from the 693 and you solve that problem.

    Unfortunately, the CM690 III isn't a great starting place - I have had to remove the lower sets of drive cages because they introduce so much restriction and noise.

    Case manufacturers seem to think that "silent" just means adding a bit of foam and a door that restricts airflow even further. Quiet operation is best achieved with good quality fans running at sensible speeds without lots of drive cages etc in their way.

    I agree, there are probably tones of other refinements that could also be made. The whole ATX standard could be replaced. However I think the cost of change is so great, that we are stuck with the devil we know.

    However getting back down to your original suggestion, I guess this is where a fully modular PSU could help, you could have both standards on it. Hell, why not just mount the ATX and other connectors on the back
