PC Games Hardware is now launching a PCGH case with Sharkoon for the second time. After the Nightfall in the PCGH edition, we have now optimized the Sharkoon M25. The M25 is a very elegant and simple case with a timeless design. In the PCGH edition, this case has now become even more attractive, especially for silent freaks.

The Sharkoon M25 Silent PCGH Edition is a mixture of the Sharkoon M25 and the S25, which we gave a savings tip award in issue 02/2017. When developing the PCGH version, the focus was on making the simple and elegant housing even quieter. For this purpose, the two side walls, the front and the top of the housing have been insulated. Due to the insulating mats, the total weight also increases from 6.2 kg to 7.9 kg, which also makes the PCGH case feel higher quality and more stable. The top of the case has now also become simpler, because it is now completely closed and no longer contains a dust grille. As a result, the housing has not only become more stable, but also quieter. A small disadvantage: You can no longer mount fans on the top of the case.
We replaced the 120 mm fan on the front of the case with a larger 140 mm fan, which improved the cooling performance. The 140mm fan is a bit louder at 0.3 sone compared to the 0.1 sone for the 120mm fan, but you won’t hear anything from the two fans in the closed case anyway thanks to the case insulation. Incidentally, the accessory comes with a high-quality PCGH logo. We deliberately did not stick this logo on, so you can decide for yourself whether and where you want to attach the logo.
