Arctic Cooling Silentium T2 Eco 80
Really, itís hard to know where to begin with a case like the Silentium T2 ECO 80. On paper, Arctic Coolingís intentions are cleary for the good and aiming in all the right directions. The idea of using rubber around the fans to prevent vibration and using heatsinks instead of fans to cool the HDD is fine and we of course love anything that can help make computing a more environmentally friendly hobby.
The real problem though is that the execution is terrible and the finished product is really just a mish-mash of ruined ideas. On some level itís actually quite depressing and thereís a distinct feeling that if the Silentium T2 was a person then itíd be a bright and promising young student who got tragically mauled by a sledgehammer-wielding Rottweiler.
The whole case just stinks of good ideas gone wrong and bad ideas left to run rampant. In the end, with a number of structural problems, poor thermal performance and a generally unappealing look itís hard to recommend the T2 to anyone. Frankly, this is the type of thing we really do wish Arnold Schwarzenegger would come back from the future to destroy. A shame.
