Up Close:  Interior Roof and Rear 

As the main selling point of these case is it's very low sonic foot-print it's no surprise to see that Cooler Master have covered a great percentage of the roof interior in sound dampening egg-box foam material.  However, as we saw from the outside the very rear of the roof has a sliding panel which if opened serves to improve heat dissipation.  Mounts for a 120mm and 140mm fan give the option of further cooling should it felt to be needed.  The roof panel is a nice little touch, essentially enabling you to have a silent(ish) case that who's sonic characteristics can be directly traded for improved cooling performance as the task in hand dictates.

The rear of motherboard area is a bit of a mixed bag.  On one hand we have 3 large rubber grommeted cable management holes, (who's spacing is a bit iffy) and a large CPU cut out .

On the other hand there's only 10 cable tie points, which although large and reasonably well distributed will still restrict our cable management options back here.  The real turd in the punch bowl though is the meagre 15mm of space back here.  The sound dampning material on the insdie of the side panel will of course further reduce this gap down to 10-11mm bring back memories of the fun we had trying to get the side panel back on when we reviewed the original back in 2012

Those of you familiar with the original version of the 650 will have noticed the final difference between the two cases in the image below left.  As this case does not come with a hardware switchable dual boot facility the little green circuitboard that lives  behind the lower bay is absent.

With the "Silent" case market becoming ever more competitive Cooler Master release a feature light version of the Silencio 650. Less features at a lower price but have they cut too deep?
