Cooler Master Readies a New Silencio 452 PC Chassis

Cooler Master has added a new PC chassis to its Silencio series. The Silencio 452 is developed in a mid-tower form-factor and features 194x451.4x494.7 mm dimensions. It is peculiar by a sleek design with totally black interior and exterior. The case boasts soundproof side panels and anti-vibration rubber props. The greenhorn is supposed to come on sale in early January, 2014, though the pricing is currently unknown.

Cooler Master Silencio 452 is intended to accommodate motherboards of a standard ATX, as well as a micro-ATX standard. Storage is introduced by two 5.25-inch racks and six internal 3.5/2.5-inch racks. This is quite enough for the assembling of a powerful platform.

Internal layout allows for the installation of quite lengthy graphics adapters (up to 386 mm) and, if necessary, a voluminous liquid-cooling heatsink (240 mm). The latter is supplemented by dedicated rubber grommets on the rear facet.

Zalman keeps on developing high-end cooling systems with a radial arrangement of plates. Its latest product, CPU cooler CNPS9900DF, is considered to be universal in terms of compatibility and implemented facilities. Still, some IT experts view this model as a modification of previously launched Zalman CNPS9900 MAX, although with two fans. In spite of visual resemblance, the company tried to design a truly uncommon cooler, with remarkable specifications and reliability.

Framework Peculiarities

Zalman CNPS9900DF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It's not a traditional vertical tower, as long as heatsink ribs feature fan-like location relative to the central axis of symmetry.
