Sharkoon expands their range of cases and, with the AI7000 Silent, introduce for the first time a robust ATX Midi tower with pre-installed damping mats. These damping mats effectively reduce the operating noise of the PC, without affecting the airflow inside the case. The case is especially suitable for silent PCs.
The Sharkoon AI7000 Silent is equipped with damping mats on both side panels, top panel and front panel. Sufficient space inside the case allows installation of a wide range of components: Install the power supply and up to three 3.5" hard drives decoupled within the tunnel on the case bottom. The AI7000 Silent also comes with two mounts for 2.5" drives behind the mainboard. Thanks to numerous openings, the mainboard can be discreetly cabled. CPU coolers up to a height of 17.5 cm can be installed thanks to a practical mainboard tray cutout. The maximum length of graphics cards is 38 cm; power supplies up to 23 cm in length. In the front, there is enough room for a 280 mm radiator with a total height of up to 5.7 cm, plus a fan.
As with all newer Sharkoon cases, the front panel is cableless and designed for easy installation, for example, of 5.25" drives. Detachable dust filters, behind the front panel and case bottom, protect the hardware from dirt. Above the front panel, the case offers two USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and audio ports. A 19-pin mainboard connector connects the USB 3.0 ports to the mainboard and can additionally offer alternative USB 2.0 ports. Two 140 mm fans are pre-installed behind the front panel; a 140 mm fan is pre-installed on the rear panel. Accents on the front air intakes are available in the colors red, green, blue and black, which determine the color version of the case.
Also presented is the Sharkoon AI7000 Glass, with a tempered glass side panel, which provides almost identical features but does not contain damping mats. Four different color versions are available, each with a visually matching LED fan on the rear panel.
