AZZA Silentium 920B Mid-Tower Chassis

As you can tell, the front of this chassis is very flat down the bezel, only to be broken up by the shiny bit of plastic. The panel is a bit offset to the left, as the angle on the right give access to the top door panel, and at the bottom, below the AZZA logo is where this chassis gets its intake of fresh air.

The front I/O panel is a bit spread out. The stripe across the chassis holds the power and HDD LEDs and the large power button on the right. Near the bottom, on the right side of the front panel you get the connectivity for USB 3.0, HD Audio and USB 2.0 with the reset button at the very bottom.

Back up top I opened the door panel to show you what is going on. The top bay does not get a drive cover, but that is due to the flip down, stealth, bay cover built into the door. To keep the door closed, this one uses tabs that lock into the bezel rather than magnets like I am used to seeing.

Since AZZA are trying to keep noises to a minimal level, opening the top of the chassis is counterproductive to that end. So in the Silentium, the top of the chassis is just an expanse of black painted steel.

The panel on the left of the chassis mounts flush against the top and front of it; you can also see the large bump-out made into it. This will add some strength to the steel as well as offering a bit more room inside the chassis. This shape is also where the sound absorbing material is placed on the other side.

The top of the chassis is really close to the I/O area and 120mm fan; this means it will be tight inside as well. Below that there are seven expansion slots next to a ventilated area allowing for water cooling tubes to pass through, leaving the PSU to be mounted in the bottom.

The right side of the chassis is identical to the opposite side, just in reverse. Again the material is place in the bump, and here this space is here to allow for more wiring to be tied in before the panel would restrict this.

Under the chassis, you see that this is supported on large, chunky, rubber feet that give the chassis good purchase on almost any surface. In the rear there is ventilation for the PSU to intake air, and there is a dust cover. As for the hole in front, it has been covered with material to keep things quiet.
