Surely they expected you to put intake through the top of the fans, nit the front. That is what i would do if the front intake didnt have filters.

TheDutchCowboy says:

Does the sd card run through the usb 3.0 header? I have this case for a while now and I can’t seem to figure out why my sd card reader is not working!

Lafeel Abriel says:

All in all I’d have to say I made the right choice when I picked the Define R5 over this case’s older brother the 550 (the only Silencio available here)

Does it include a fan switch since it has 3 fans?

Silent cases really haven’t impressed me other than Nanoxia’s Deep 1 and 6.

Cayenne Pepper says:

That is a case I might like. Is it a full tower or just a mid tower?

Yes you need it … Many people forget about music production…. You worry about games? Try recording with a noisy system

Looking forward to the Cooler Master Linusio 660S

Cut your fucking nails

peter lewis says:

You can stick an up to 200m fan on the inside of the side case vent for extra gpu  cooling especially good for overclocking . (fitted coolermaster megaflow 200mm no problem on mine )
  It does work best with the top vent panel removed ,ive got mine on 1″ spacers so I can still put things on top of my case . I got a cheep fan controller as no spare fan connectors on my mb ,also means I can turn it off or completely silence it for non gaming.
On the downside I do occasionally get a bit of vibration on my rear fan . tut tut.

Ben J says:

It’d be nice to include what the MSRP on this case is.  Ultimately, it boils down to the “VALUE” –  how much is it?  If it’s $40, then it’s a screaming bargain, but if it’s $140, then hell no!  Sure, you cannot control how much retailers sell it, but your review should at least suggest a comparable case for such and such price, so if this case falls at a certain range, then it’s “ok value” vs another price range, then it’s a “great value”. 

Nick Roy says:

All I want is a silent windowed case with modular drive mounts, a door in the front, water cooling options, really clean inside that doesn’t collect dust, easy water cooling installation, that looks nice

neiio says:

Only nerds watch this.

MsLia32 says:

If you leave the case panel out for too long it bends and the case doesn’t close correctly any more

Tritton HD says:

Do you know any great sites to buy gaming pcs because I can find any please help

Vern Oldham says:

It’s damping, not dampening.

PP AP says:

i have that case

Richard Jacobs says:

What does the reset button on the front of the case?

Zector 45 says:

Antec P280!
Let the trolling begin! 😛

Pushkaraj Desai says:

Reid says:

Does anyone know what case is shown in the casemod world series ad?

LightHawk000 says:

coolermaster sucks at making cases now. they’ve lost it almost completely. from the Cosmo SE junk to the tiny scout 2 (not as bad as the original) to that ugly dual chamber thing that got scrapped after pretty much all negative feedback. they just don’t know what to do. every case they’ve released in the last two years has been short on space and had some stupid mechanism or implimentation with drive bays and fan/rad support. 

Bojan Markovic says:

Does someone can help me, where should connect usb case connector? In manual there are usb 3.0 and usb 2.0 explanation, but silencio has one more “usb” just with 4 pin’s. I use Gigabyte h97-d3h motherboard. Thanks!

angus stowers says:

7:03 did anyone else see a part of the rubber grommit fall of?

Tom Brown says:

A nice looking case! I wish LTT would make newer videos of more recent up-to-date case unboxings in 2016 but I guess that all good things come to an end.

DragonlordXV says:

is there a window version of this ?

SOOTH says:

Dude why are You wave Your hands so much is that helping with anything ? wtf !!!!!

Dwayne Stimpson says:

Terrible case. I cant believe they produce this crap. They aren’t going to compete with Phanteks, Corsair or Fractal. QFT CM, your gear is over the last few years is terrible.

Love the videos Linus, your the only reason I watched.

Dominic says:

Thinking of getting this case later in the week (to replace my Zalman Z2 plus). It’s not really my style anymore, I would rather prefer a simple quiet case like this one 😀

PhilGoodInc says:

Linus, why don’t you just design a case yourself?

Roberto says:

I have the nzxt phantom 240 if i change to this one is everything going to fit? HELP

Muhamad Ubaied says:

Silencio 352 OR N200

innn says:

i like how on all cases review videos heats up the debate between h440 and design r5. My two cents: they are both friggin ugly please move on. I bet you could find a case not that ugly if you only looked more around.

Supra TT says:

stupid case my friend had it he said sucks balls

HeadShot360 says:

Why bother having fans if they just get covered by hard plastic? How does the air flow?

MoonBlade says:

Linus, why is it that you have the one of the ONLY English reviews of this case???

Samuel Gibson says:

When you buy a matt davies computer you get this case with it

Walter Lindell says:

Do a review on the silencio 352

ForbinColossus says:

COOLER MASTER SUCKS SHIT – rebate thieves is the best I can say after buying one of their cases for a very nice, very old WWII veteran. I helped the old guy get all the paperwork and UPC attached to send in for a crummy $10. rebate and the Cooler Master flunkies that they are – sent NOTHING. These companies should be outed for selling their stuff with rebates and ignoring the customer after putting out so much effot to jump through their hoops. They want you to jump like a monkey wheil they sit back, laugh and do jack shit.

Clinton Guevara says:

Hi, I’m from Trinidad and Tobago that’s in the Caribbean. I just got my Cooler Master Silencio 652S from amazon. This would be my first PC build, could you kindly post a video showing what’s the best motherboard, processor, RAM and video card that I can use. I would like to get into some video editing and gaming, also how to incorporate radiators in the case. Thank you in advance.

Marius Eysele says:

Love your reviews

Supra TT says:

his video card all most didnt fit in there 

Kastan Gamblack says:
