Visually, the Silenos Pro impresses above all with tempered glass that is used to cover the entire front and side windows. In addition, there is a solid equipment with two pre-installed 200 mm RGB LED fans on the front and another 120 on the back as well as enough space for potent gaming hardware and extensive cooling solutions.

- Design & tempered glass side windows in the Raijintek Silenos Pro-Midi-Tower
The incentive and self-claim of the Raijintek Silenos Pro was quite obvious to design a full housing that can accommodate a powerful gaming setup and is a real eye-catcher at the same time. Raijintek relied on a high-quality and stable 0.6 mm steel chassis, which is painted black. The housing also has two large side windows made of tempered glass, which are located on the right and left side of the housing and provide an excellent insight into the installed hardware. The front is also equipped with a tempered glass pane. The glass panes give the entire housing a very elegant look and present the hardware in a showcase manner.
Air or water cooling in the Raijintek Silenos Pro
A 120 mm fan pre-installed on the back is responsible for an active air flow, which is supported by two further, gigantic 200 mm fans in the front. This already creates an excellent airflow that can reliably cool down even potent gaming hardware. All three built-in fans also have ring-shaped RGB lighting with digitally addressable LEDs, which looks particularly chic. If required, however, the midi tower offers enough space to expand the air cooling to a total of six 120 mm fans or four 140 fans. Of these, two 120 or 140 can also be attached to the lid. Above it is a honeycomb mesh and an additional magnetic dust filter.
Thanks to the relatively large dimensions of the Midi-ATX tower, effective water cooling can also be installed. A radiator with 360 mm or 280 mm can be installed on the front, and there is enough space on the lid for a 280 mm or 240 mm radiator. In the Silenos Pro, Raijintek has integrated several options for attaching data carriers. Two 3.5-inch or two 2.5-inch data carriers can be accommodated in a modular HDD cage under the power supply cover. One 2.5-inch data carrier can be installed on the back of the mainboard tray, and two more on the front. There is also space for three 2.5-inch data carriers on the power supply cover.
Good equipment and plenty of space for gaming hardware
The interior of the almost 7.8 kg Raijintek Silenos Pro turns out to be pleasantly spacious, because in addition to the main board in the form factor ATX, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX, powerful ATX power supplies, pixel bulbs up to 32 cm in length and CPU coolers can also be used up to 16.6 cm high. The increased space behind the mainboard tray for easy cable management is also particularly useful.
Overall, the usability of Raijintek for the Silenos Pro was very high, because the dust filters are easy to remove and can be cleaned just as easily. In addition, the Silenos Pro is equipped with mainboard spacers and has a large cutout in the tray for easy cooler replacement. The I / O panel in the front part of the cover has two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 type A connector and an HD audio connector. The integrated controller for the digitally addressable RGB lighting of the fans can accommodate a total of six RGB components with standard 5VDG pins and is controlled via a switch on the I / O panel. Alternatively, the RGB lighting can also be connected directly to an appropriately equipped mainboard.
