    It's time to check out the new Cooler Master Silencio S600 mid-tower PC chassis. CM released many new cases recently, including the Masterbox Q500L and the NR600, which we reviewed on Guru3d...

    Absolutely not a fan of cases with front doors. In my honest opinion, NR400/600 are better cases.
    Besides, what's the point on making a case around silence and placing a clear panel on the side?
    Great review though!

    From just the looks of this case I feel CM has lost touch. A 5.25" drive bay? No usb-c front panel? An SD card reader? SSD mounting system that requires the motherboard to be removed? Yeah this is not a good case in my opinion.

    The bay is removable, but this is more a budget case. A number of budget cases kind of have the same issue.

    $100 does not a "budget" case make. CM is out of touch there as well. Phanteks has the P300/350x at $60-80 and is a better case. CM is riding their name seems like to me.
    For $20 more dollars you can get a Lian Li PC-011 dynamic. You chose.

    They're marketing it as such, but I do agree. This is fully CM riding their name on this product. Definitely a lot better options out there.
