Full ATX Midi Tower Case
The Silentium T-Series is the first PC Tower case, which in terms of thermodynamics does not follow the ATX standard of the mid 1990s. This case was developed from scratch based on the idea of noise reduction and optimal thermodynamic properties.
-Warm air emitted from the CPU cooler rise unhindered towards the top of the case blown out of the case via 2 temperature controlled fans spinning at max. 1900 RPM. This stops the CPU cooler from simply churning the same warm air over and over again.
-Cool air is drawn inside the case towards the CPU cooler and expansion cards. This allows for the temperature of sensitive components to decrease significantly.
-The power supply is cooled via 2 temperature controlled fans spinning at max.1900 RPM. Thanks to the lower position of the power supply a smaller airflow is sufficient for cooling.
The case has been designed from start with the goal to reduce the noise to an absolute minimum. Openings to the front of the case were intentionally left out.
Air exhaustion and power supply cooling have been configured for a high end PC, despite this high end configuratoin the system operates virtually silent.
I/O Front Connectors
Audio In and Out as well as two USB 2.0 connectors are included in the front bezel. The IEEE 1394 (Firewire) connector is optional
An a luminum frame muffles the harddrive noise and at the same time keeps it cool. The suspended frame stops vibrations from carrying over on to the chassis.
-Excellent Efficiency 75-80%
Low heat generation
Lower energy consumption
Lowest electricity costs
-Active PFC (99%)
No humming noises even during high loads
No voltage peaks which cause efficiency losses
No ripplevoltage in power network
-Rated Power = Continuous Power
Most power supplies provide only between 60-80% of the indicated power over a continous amount of time. Our PSU provides 450 Watt max. power for a short time and 350 Watt continuously.
At 350 Watt continuous power the power supply is well proportioned and will provide sufficient power for the highest demands for many years to come. Numerous in house and independant tests have proven that today's PC consumes at most 230 Watt (P4 3.8 GHz, Geforce 6800 Ultra).
As shown in diagramm, compared to over proportioned power supplies the efficiency of the Seasonic/ARCTIC does not plummit during low loads below 120 Watt.
The power consumption at a power demand of 280 Watt is for the Seasonic/ARCTIC power supply only 70 Watts compared to the 151 Watt of low cost generic 350 Watt model. This results in a savings of 120.70 $ over 4 years. (4h load and 4h idle per day 0.19$/kWh)
The mechanicaly optimized construction using 0.8 mm SECC steel makes this case despite a reative low weight one of the most torsion resistant cases available.
The screwless installation of expansion cards and disk drives allows for quick and simple assembly.
Long Service Life
The power supply is the most common cause of shut downs or system instability .
Despite this fact in most cases low qualities power supplies are still found in today?s PC. The result are system failures after one to two years.
With Seasonic ARCTIC COOLING has chosen the best in power supply manufacturers.
All 4 fans use a special ceramic bearing which can reach a service life of L10 (@40°C) 137000h or a never before reached MTBF of 163000h.
In order to avoid damage during transportation ARCTIC COOLING developed a custom made packaging system for the Silentium T-series.
-Horizontal case positioning:
Shocks or vibrations press the CPU cooler and expansion cards into its socket.
To absorbe the shock of a fall the case is kept in between two styrofoam supports as well as a thick mat of foam.
