I am in the process of completing a build of the Silencio 352 case, and was expecting the fans to be the


Two powerful XtraFlo fans- Wide range PWM fans-

600 to 2000 RPM


9-36 dBA


Instead my case has 2 fans, both 3 pins, see the enclosed picture of one, on the internet I noted a 2008 review which noted the model number and described it as


  Model number:  DF1202512SELN

•    Size:  120x120x25mm

•    Voltage: 7~13.2 VDC

•    Speed: 1,500 rpm

•    Airflow: 50.4 CFM

•    Pressure:  1.93 mm H2O

•    Noise: 25.6 dBA


I have used multiple other Cooler Master Cases in the past, none of them designed to be quiet, but this is the noisiest.  Suggestions concerning how to proceed.  It was an Amazon purchase, and the motherboard etc. are in place.  I am disappointed that the fans described in the website, are not the fans that were in the case. Other Amazon comments include that the fans included were 3 pins and that the are not PWM, but I went with the website description, and only noted these comments after system was up.

not even an Amazon newbie myself, but couldn't you try to return it? there is an obvious case of blatant, let's say misinformation, sort of. At least. The other thing from merely guessing, a mini-tower, holding a micro-board of all marvels, might be producing a little more dins than average any day. PS: advertised XtraFlo might have gone through the roof already...

Trying to avoid taking the build apart, went on ahead and ordered some PWM fans, but was looking for a response from Cooler Master before posting on Amazon, to see if the situation had been fixed, or if their website was going to be updated.
