The "a la carte" approach to creating a cool, quiet computer system can cost serious money. Likewise, buying a case designed to include all of the components you need to make your computer run quietly without heating up can be costly. Mike Mackenzie takes a look at Arctic Cooling's Silentium T2, and finds that it lives up to its name.
In the quest for quiet computing, one of the most overlooked pieces of hardware is the case. Normally you would purchase a good looking case and a quiet power supply to replace the cheap generic power supply. You might also buy quiet chassis fans to replace loud generic fans, and perhaps a hard drive cooler. You could easily be spending more money than necessary.
A few companies offer “no noise” chassis, which cost an unbelievable amount of money. This brings me to Arctic Cooling, a highly respected company that is mostly known for their aftermarket graphics card coolers and CPU processors. It recently branched out to aftermarket cases. Today we have one of their new cases, the Silentium T2.
The Silentium T2 is shipped in a plastic bag to prevent scratches, set in a Styrofoam supports and is set on top of a thick foam pad to prevent damage during shipping.
