SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB – A Very Capable Budget Case!
If you have read any of our other reviews on tech you might have noticed that we do appreciate a good budget product. There is no greater pleasure than finding a great budget mouse, headset, or webcam that does what it needs to do without you having to sell a kidney!
Today we have another great find for those hunting for deals – a great budget PC case that comes from a rather unknown European company. Today we will be talking about the SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB!
The biggest issue with buying a budget product is often the build quality that is usually subpar. As detailed in this video it is often that budget PC cases use budget materials and tooling which ends up with them being a one-time use case.
Luckily none of those issues can be identified with the SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB case. Although this is a budget offering the case is sturdy and well built overall.
The main side panel and front panel are made out of tempered glass, while the back panel that covers your cables is a sturdy metal one.
The case is easy to work in since it has a spacious dual chamber construction with a wide service bay that adds to the feeling of solid build quality.
There is no fault in the build quality of the SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB even when looking at the details. The case has a magnetic dust filter on top and has protective rubber around the main side panel to keep the tempered glass safe.
The case overall inspires a feel of quality and security giving you faith that it will keep the components safe while also looking good on your table.
Airflow & Design
The SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB also takes its job at keeping your components cool very seriously providing them with fresh air from the front hexagonal intakes.
This is definitely not a case with a high airflow design but at the same time, the intake vents in the front do a decent job at providing air for the case fans and the components inside of your PC.
In terms of aesthetics, it is nice to see that the SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB case lives up to the RGB in its name due to the fans provided from the factory. Overall the case looks stylish and with the RGB off it can be even passed as an office case.
Once you turn the RGB on though, this case definitely caters towards an audience that wants the big gamer looks with the maximum amount of lights and RGB.
The tempered glass side and front panels also give it that premium look that would surely turn heads while being in a budget category.
A bonus of the dual chamber design mentioned previously is also the fact that it will keep your PSU and the majority of your cables neatly covered adding extra points to the aesthetic department.
Overall the case is functionally sound, with enough airflow, and also has a stylish look that can appeal to both gamers and office workers alike.
One of the biggest advantages of the SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB PC case is the fact that it comes with 4 Corona HP RGB 120mm fans already pre-installed.
What this means is that this case is already apt at cooling straight from the box, while also looking enticing with the RGB fans adding some flair.
This situation also means that you only might need 1 or 2 more fans for the top exhaust if you want to maximize the potential cooling of the case.
In the case of the build I have on hand, the top exhaust is used by the AIO radiator therefore I did not need to purchase any extra fans at all.
Also, it is important to mention that the Corona fans are not bad at all. The fans operate silently and also have pretty stunning RGB considering they are freebies that come with the case.
I honestly think that these 4 premium fans are what makes this case an extremely good deal, adding a LOT of value proposition for your money!
The front panel I/O on the SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB case is pretty standard and offers you basically everything you would need.
You get 2x USB 3.1 hubs, headphones/microphone jack, an LED indicator, and then the reset and power buttons.
As stated, nothing extravagant while also nothing to complain about since most of your peripherals will be plugged in the back of your motherboard.
Price & Availability
The biggest reason you would consider buying this relatively unknown case to the market over better-known brands is the price. The SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB case comes in at around 70 Euros which is an insane proposition for the amount of quality and extra features you get.
A high-quality case with a solid build, 2 tempered glass panels, spacious design made to accommodate most builds, and 4 FREE Corona 120mm case fans that not only operate silently and cool your system well but also have great looking RGB.
If this is not a great deal then I do not know what is.
A glaring issue with SilentiumPC products though is the fact that they are only available in the EU. As somebody that lives in the EU, this is obviously not an issue for me, but for anybody outside of the EU/UK the case will most likely not be available.
This limits the market that SilentiumPC is competing in, but as a somewhat new company, it makes sense to gain a foothold in your home market first and then try to expand to other regions.
Aside from the availability issue, there is really nothing else to complain about when you take into consideration the product you receive for only 70 Euros. Good job SilentiumPC!
The SilentiumPC Signum SG1X TG RGB PC case is definitely an underdog that needs to be watched carefully as it offers extremely good bang for buck build quality, design, and extra features.
If you are in Europe and are planning to build a new PC on a budget we would recommend you look at the Signum and see if it fits your needs. Once again well done SilentiumPC!
