SilentiumPC Armis AR3 Review – A Simple Price/Performance Hit with 5.25″ Support?!

SilentiumPC is a manufacturer of PC hardware founded in 2007 in Warsaw, Poland. When developing its products, the company places the main focus on products that are as inexpensive as possible but nevertheless well equipped with solid workmanship. The main focus is on housings and cooling products such as CPU coolers, fans and AiO water coolers.

About two months ago we already had the SilentiumPC Armis AR5 in our test laboratory. That had come off quite well for the estimated price. Today we test the little brother. It is named Armis AR3 and has a very high visual similarity to its big brother. For lovers of an extravagant look, there are also two other versions with tempered glass and RGB fans. For the simpler Armis AR3 without Tempered Glass that we tested, SilentiumPC gives a UVP of 41,90 €. Whether a purchase of the SilentiumPC Armis AR3 is recommended, we will find out for you in this review.
