Up Close: Exterior Overview
Like the other cases in the Silencio series, the 452 Eschews all the bold lines and massive vents of the HAF cases. Instead we're treated to a feast of minimalist simplicity. There are no windows, no visable fan grills, and as a ceetain Mr Henry Ford once famously said, you can have any colour you like as long as it's Black.
Aside from the left hand hinge of the door creating a deliberate asymmetry of the front panel to allow space for the power and reset buttons the exterior of the case is largely uniform.
Apart form this gap created by the asymmetrical panel, the only other method of air entry to the case front is via the slanted slits on either side of the front projection, the right hand side of which harbours the power, reset and associated LED.
The case front might look like a steel or Aluminum, or to give it its proper name Aluminium. It is however simply plastic or as our friends over the pond call it polymer. What we can be agreed on though is it being adorned by a pair of audio in and outs, 2xUSB3.0, 1xUSB2.0 and a Class 10 SD card reader to make it easier to copy off all that media we have a habit of collecting when out and about.
