ARCTIC COOLING SILENTIUM T2 INTRODUCTION
There are a staggering number of aftermarket PC cases available these days. For example, one major online retailer has over 850 models to choose from. Most enthusiasts know what they're after when it comes to chassis selection, and review sites like Tweaknews can help narrow the field a bit by going over the product in more detail. Arctic Cooling is a name likely more associated with heatsinks and fans, but they do market cases, and we've got one here in the lab for evaluation. As you can guess from the name, the Silentium T2 Eco 80 seems to target the green, quiet computing niche of PC users, but the AC website also lists the gaming enthusiast as a potential user. Can these two somewhat divergent groups both be happy with the Silentium? Let's take a look at this intriguing chassis and see what shakes out.
