SilentiumPC Armis AR5 – Simple Midi Tower with 5.25″ Support under Test

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. The main focus is on housings and cooling products such as CPU coolers, fans and AiO water coolers.

Recently, the manufacturer presented a newly developed housing. This is called Armis AR5 and is a very simple midi tower with support for 5.25″ drives. SilentiumPC promotes the Armis AR5 with good hardware compatibility, decent airflow and sophisticated cable management.

For fans of an extravagant look, there are also four other versions with tempered glass and RGB fans in various combinations.  The simpler AR5 without Tempered Glass tested by us gives SilentiumPC a UVP of 44 €. Whether a purchase of the SilentiumPC Armis AR5 is recommended and how it performs generally, we will find out for you in this review.
