Today we introduce to you the flagship of Cooler Master's Silencio range: The 650 model. We already saw the prototype at Cebit 2012 and the specification list was impressive. Cooler Master promised us an integration of a fan controller, a hot swappable bay, a selection option of the boot drive. In a typical Cooler Master design and retailing at a moderate price tag. It's predecessor, the Silenco 550 was a decent silent case, but had a few shortcomings, especially the cable management was a rough ride due to the small clearance between the motherboard tray and the side panel and a bit too small cutouts in the motherboard panel. However for a 70 euro case it was a great addition to the silent Silencio enclosure range for Cooler Master. The new Silencio 650 model, due to the extra features retails at plus minus 110 euros, time to stop the chit chat and open the box.Read moreCES 2013 Videos – Notebooks, Tablets and Convertibles with Gigabyte, Lenovo and MSI @ MEGATechNews

The pursuit for silence is sought after by many enthusiasts and meeting different demands, manufacturers have developed product-lines to satisfy these needs. In the computer chassis category there are products designed specifically with silence in mind. Likewise, in the arena of cooling there are also products designed for those with a leaning towards low-noise solutions but in all these cases there is usually a compromise. Silent computer cases generally feature closed off panels and thus can suffer by struggling to generate adequate airflow, but for CPU coolers the compromise for silence is usually temperatures and today’s review sample seeks to find an excellent balance between the two.Read moreCES 2013 Coverage Day 2 @ OCC
Under the spotlight today is SilverStone’s newly released HE02 from the Heligon Series. HE02 is a large CPU cooler designed to be used passively inside a computer chassis. Although it doesn’t come with a cooling fan, it can entertain them, but the intention is to go without in a bid to achieve silence whilst delivering impressive temperature readings on a plethora of socket types. HE02 is even suitable for the demanding heights of Intel’s Sandy Bridge-E and this is something we will be taking a close look at today.
