AZZA Silentium 920 Case Review

The Front Panel
Hardware Secrets Bronze Award

The front panel of the AZZA Silentium 920 has a door with a dampening material applied to it. This door opens from right to left in an unchangeable configuration. One of the main concerns with cases that have a door is the position of its buttons and connectors; some manufacturers place them behind the door, which is a major nuisance. On this case, the buttons and connectors are located on the lower left corner of the front panel.

One interesting feature of the reviewed case is that you can still open the tray of an optical drive installed on the top-most 5.25” bay even with the door shut. See Figure 4.

The AZZA Silentium 920 comes with four external 5.25” bays, all using solid covers. The case also has an external 3.5” bay, which comes with a 5.25” cover. In order to use this bay, you must remove the 5.25” cover and install the 3.5” bezel that comes with the case.

The case comes with one USB 3.0 port using an internal connector and one USB 2.0 port. We can’t understand why this case comes with only one USB 3.0 port instead of two. If it is because the manufacturer wanted the case to still be compatible with older motherboards, the company could have simply added an adapter to convert the USB 3.0 internal connector into a USB 2.0 one.

The front panel comes with a 120 mm fan installed, which has an air filter. This fan uses a standard three-pin fan power connector, but it also comes with an adapter for you to install it directly to the power supply. No technical specifications for this fan are provided.
