    Pros & Cons

    Pros

    Ok so let's go over the good stuff this system has:

    • Good Case Construction
    • EMI Shielding
    • Noise Reduction Options (Foam Lining, Rubber Lining on HD Cage, Quiet Power Supply)
    • Screw-less Entry
    • Screw-less Interface Card Slots
    • Slide Out Motherboard Tray
    • Lockable Front Slider
    • System Monitoring/Thermal Management Software
    • Feature Filled Motherboard
    • Very Quiet Operation

    Cons

    With the good, there has to be some bad so let's see:

      System Temps Higher Than Normal Motherboard Screws Hard to Install No Overclocking Features (only if you're into overclocking :) ) A Little Pricey

    Conclusion

    Noise has always been the bane of the PC enthusiasts. The Silent-PC eliminates a lot of the noise so you can sleep at night. It's very well constructed and SP has focused on areas where other manufacturers have only brushed upon. They've really took the time to develop a user friendly case design that really works. So what's the bottom line here? Well the Silent-PC definitely delivers on it's claims. The combination of the case and motherboard will run you $300+, but you get a lot of great features as well as a virtually silent system. If you want the optional features like matching CDROM and Floppy, you'll have to pay more. For budget guys this might seem like a lot but for what you're getting it's well worth it. If you are looking for a way to eliminate most of the noise from your system and don't mind paying for it, the Silent-PC is definitely the way to go. You really have to hear it for yourself. This product might not be for overclockers, but gamers can still have their systems in here running silent and maybe give your roommate some peace and quiet for once. You can also take the case and add your own components to it. You're not just limited to using the case as is, but of course that's beyond the scope of this review. I'd like to thank SP North America for providing us with a review sample. Thanks for taking the time to read this review and I hope you enjoyed it.
