The Build and Finished Product

With the bezel removed you will notice two things. First of all, the wiring is attached, so if you tend the wires and need to remove this later, be careful. Secondly, there is the 120mm fan and dust cover I removed from the front of the chassis with just one screw. This will make cleaning it very easy.

With the build complete except for having the side panels on, the front of the chassis looks not one bit different from when we pulled it out of the box. So if you liked the aesthetics to begin with, you don't have to deal with the optical drive mucking things up.

Inside there is room for a full sized tower cooler, plenty of room for the HIS Radeon HD 7950, and things are pretty tidy inside. Since the roof is so close to the motherboard, getting the screws in at the top are challenging if the CPU cooler is already in place.

The dust shield for the rear I/O went in smoothly, and the card only required a bit of force on the back to line up the holes properly, and with the thumbscrews for the PSU, mounting it was a snap.

In reality, there wasn't much to run back here. With the short cable kit for the video card and 24-pin being used, all I had to deal with was the fan power and the front panel wiring for the most part, and it was simple enough to just roll them up and set them on the floor.

With the panels back on and just a power cord shy of testing this chassis, once again, the completed build leaves the Silentium 920B looking just as it did in the beginning.

I had to try out the stealth cover and see how it worked. The large button in the bezel makes good contact to the drive and the flip down panel gets right out of the way so the tray can extend. Once you go to close it, the retraction is smooth and the door springs back closed.

Once the chassis gets power, and you pressed the large button on the front, the only way you know this case is running is from the blue LED in that shiny bit in the front bezel. If the storage drive is in action, you get an amber LED flicker off to the right of the blue one. As for noise, you have to put your ear within about six inches before you can even hear the hum of a fan.
