With a front panel finish of metallic gloss automotive paint, the AM5 Silent Midi ATX Tower from Sharkoon is an absolute eye-catcher in every gaming garage. With its red, blue or titanium front, it is not just a visual highlight. Operating noise is reduced by up to 30 percent thanks to the pre-installed soundproof mats on the case sides, front and rear panels. Even with high-performance hardware, the case remains as quiet as a whisper. Not only does it have all types of installation options, but also clever solutions, allowing the connected cabling to disappear from the field of vision.
The AM5 employs a sophisticated cable management system with numerous cable pass-throughs. The entire cabling can be routed and hidden behind the mainboard without affecting airflow. There is sufficient space inside the tunnel, on the case bottom, for a power supply with a maximum length of 20.5 cm. Here, the power supply cabling can also be hidden from view. The tunnel itself has air vents on its top and side for optimum cooling of hard drives. A new CPU cooler with a maximum height of 16.7 cm can be easily installed through an opening in the mainboard tray. Of course, there is still enough room for graphics cards up to 40 cm in length. The front panel is not only visually dominant, but also clever and designed cable-free. It is always removable without cables getting in the way.
There is plenty of room to install hard drives: Up to two 3.5" hard drives or 2.5" HDDs/SSDs can be mounted into the HDD cage, which is screwed tightly to the top of the tunnel. Another 3.5" hard drive finds space on the bottom of the tunnel below. Behind the mainboard tray, there is space for two additional 2.5" HDDs/SSDs, mounted with the help of the two 2.5" drive bay trays and secured using the enclosed thumbscrews. If necessary, the HDD case can be positioned right up to the fans in the front panel, using the convenient thumbscrews and oval hole cutouts.
In order to ensure optimal airflow, the front panel has numerous air vents on both its sides. Two 140 mm fans come pre-installed behind the front panel. Alternatively, either up to three 120 mm fans, a 280 mm or 360 mm radiator (all of which with a maximum height of 5.5 cm) can be installed. A 120 mm fan comes pre-installed on the rear panel; if preferred, this can be replaced with a 120 mm radiator. All fans and radiators can be perfectly positioned thanks to the oval hole cutouts.
So that nothing gets in the way of the stylish front, the audio connectors for both the microphone and headphones as well as two USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 interfaces are located on the edge of the top panel. The USB 3.0 ports are connected via a 19-pin mainboard connector.
