Arctic Cooling does not need long introductions as you have surely heard of the IceQ cooling system installed on graphics cards from HIS. HIS doesn’t actually make that cooler, but buys it from Arctic Cooling which also sells it as a standalone product under the Silencer brand. So, I guess every PC user who is really interested in advanced cooling solutions knows the Arctic Cooling logo well. The company’s products aren’t inferior in quality and originality even to those of Zalman.
The above mentioned Silencer series of graphics card coolers once used to be one of the few popular offers from Arctic Cooling, but the company has enlarged its product range considerably during the past year. It currently offers cooling systems for modern CPUs, noiseless system fans with and without highlighting, and computer cases.
Today we are going to take a look at the latter offer which is the more interesting as Arctic Cooling took an absolutely new approach to building a system case and developed a whole new component layout almost from scratch. The only thing they left in its customary place is the mainboard. The company positions its system cases as a ready-made solution for building a very quiet computer – the user only has to add in the necessary hardware components.
So, let's meet the Silentium product family from Arctic Cooling!
