Cooler Master has just announced a couple of computer towers for those looking for a silent team. The Silence S600 and Silence S400, which is what they are called, achieve this through a combination of low profile fans (in a matter of decibels, go) and sound-absorbing material. The two boxes have similar aesthetic profiles, but the first mentioned is larger in size, being able to accommodate complete ATX motherboards, while the second, the S400, is only compatible with micro ATX and mini-ITX.
According to the information published by the company, the placement of the sound-absorbing materials has been carried out “in a meticulous way”, analyzing the sound source of the boxes in terms of source, resonance, patterns and frequencies. With this, the intention of Cooler Master has been to isolate the towers with more precision to balance the thermal efficiency and reduce the noise. It is a complicated balance, because the more absorbing material is added, the more difficult it is to ventilate the box well.
With regard to ventilation, the Silence comes with two 120 mm fans, placed in the front and in the back. It is possible to place a third in the front or place 140 mm fans, also in the upper part of the box. If your thing is hybrid refrigeration, the boxes can accommodate radiators of 240 mm in the upper part and up to 280 mm in the front.
The Silence S600 has seven expansion slots, and the S400, four. Both have bays for optical drives of 5.25 inches, four for 3.5-inch hard drives and five for 2.5-inch drives, in the case of the S600, and four in the case of the S400. Front have two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, 3.5 audio slot and a SD card reader slot. They will be available at the beginning of July for 79.99 euros for the S400 and for 89.99 euros for the S400.
