You have probably heard of the phrase, “Silence is golden”, and in many ways, I find this true. For one, I am mostly an introvert, so I work quite a bit better on my own and in solitude. Often when I need to think, I would shut myself in my room to remove external distractions. The origin of this phrase is unknown, much like many other phrases. One of the first examples of using this phrase in English is, quite ironically, a long-winded piece by Thomas Carlyle, an English poet. He takes the German phrase meaning, “Speech is silvern, silence is golden”, and Carlyle expands it further to say speech is of time, but silence is eternity. There even is a song from the 1950s by the Tremeloes, but it speaks more about the deception of speech, rather than the beauty of silence. Of course, this phrase also lies true to many computer enthusiasts. Many of us would rather prefer a silent computer, rather than a noisy one. I remember one of my friends telling me how when he first built his computer, he did not care about noise, but as time went on, he realized how much it bothered him to hear his computer whirring in the background. His solution? Buy a better computer case! Many computer cases today have insulating materials padded on the inside panels to reduce the noise output. Unfortunately, many of these products are also not cheap or worse yet, are not effective. As we saw with the Cooler Master Silencio 550, if these materials insulate heat better than noise, the case will be pointless. SilverStone decided to take a stab at this issue by providing us with a computer chassis in the SilverStone Precision PS10. Not only are both side panels padded with sound-insulating material, but at press time the case can be found for less than $50 USD. Branded to have a silent operation, will this case actual prove to be golden, or have there been too many corners cut to make this wallet-friendly? These questions and more will be answered in today’s review!
