Arctic Cooling Unveils Silentium T11 Chassis and HC01-TC Hard Drive Cooler
Arctic Cooling today unveiled two new products: the ARCTIC Silentium T11 mid-tower chassis and the ARCTIC HC01-TC hard drive cooler. Both new products are built as silent cooling solutions.
First up is the Silentium T11, a steel-built mid-tower chassis. The Silentium features two USB and audio ports on the front along with four 5.25" external drive slots and one 3.25" internal drive slot. Its 7 expansion slots support graphics cards up to 35cm in length. The Silentium contains two pre-installed 120mm fans which change in RPM dynamically according to the case temperature. The chassis supports standard and micro-ATX motherboards. A unique feature of the Silentium is a VGA air hood to direct airflow onto the graphics card. The Silentium T11 chassis measures 49x43x19cm (LxHxW), weighs in at 5kg and will be available in black and white models.
Next up is the HC01-TC hard drive cooler. The HC01-TC supports 3.5" SATA hard drives and fits in standard 5.25" drive bays. It includes a temperature-controlled 40mm fan to extract hot air from the hard drive, ranging from 1600RPM to 4600RPM depending on the hard drive temperature. The hard drive cooler also includes absorption foam to reduce vibration and noise from the hard drive. The HC01-TC hard drive cooler measures 147x42x187mm (WxHxD) and weighs 508g.
The Silentium T11 case will be available in mid-October for US$59.95 and the HC01-TC hard drive cooler will be available at the end of August for US$22.95.
