Silencio 550 - thoughts?

Your thoughts on this case?

Silencio 550

water cooling holes

front

Comes with SD card reader, hot swap-able drive bay. Downsides, only can mount max 3 120mm fans, probably would get hot inside i guess. Fans spin at 800rpm. But quiet I assume.

Seems more like a water cooling candidate case with externally mounted rad?

Anyway, it's cheap, same price as CM690II and looks somewhat stylish.

Yea I like this case too. More of a workstation/server case though. It just showed up on Newegg, right now its a little pricey at $110 + shipping (same as a R3 and more than a H2) but if the price went down a bit it would be a good option.

For a gaming rig build in this case I would go with a cool running CPU (~95W max and not plan on overclocking much) and an external-exhaust GPU that would still be quiet (a 570 maybe). Also definitely a modular PSU, the sound deading foam on the side panels is really thick so the side panel will be hard to get on with lots of cables.
