CoolerMaster Silencio 352 Review

CoolerMaster Silencio 352 Review

 

Introduction

With m-ATX and to some extent Mini-ITX motherboards becoming ever more powerful and as a result more popular and mainstream, it necessarily follows that the discerning PC enthusiast is going to be looking for an enclosure that best suits their needs.  In recent months we’ve looked at both the original and the latest “Pure” version of the CoolerMaster Silencio 650 line up, and we’ve been well impressed with them.  Although these cases will take an m-ATX case, they’re far from being small form factor.  Enter then the Silencio 352, an SFF case with more than a few aces up it’s sleeve.
