I expect some modders to replace the useless back with a Rad.

The back is probably not useless, that sort of foam does absorb noise very well. Also, putting a rad with noise-making fans on the back would defeat the purpose of the case.

What I'd say is that silencing usually comes at the price of cooling ability, so I wouldn't want to be putting a high-end rig in this, where the size would call for it.

If you're liquid cooling your CPU + GPU you won't need a silencing case anyway unless you have 5 hard drives constantly wurring away!

BTW rad fans can be fitted to a fan controller and turned down so you can't hear them and they still cool way better than a noisey HSF at top speed.

Liquid cooling my PC is the best thing I've ever done to it!

Shame my new flatmate has moved his noisey PC in tho
I can't hear the TV properly when he's gaming!

This is more of a concept than anything else, remember. It's designed for total silence, if you want an example of the potential uses of this, it could be useful in a home recording studio, where ultra-sensitive microphones can pick up noise from even the quietest computers.

I'd buy it, looks like a cool retro data center/scientific type casing. Any chance of a review?

All case aren't mean to gaming. With the right component if the case fulfill it's objective you might be able to have one totally silent pc on aircooling.

Those situations call for passive cooled systems, ergo, this case is useless for that.

If you want a silent case then high-end air-cooling is the way to go, even the best and more expensive pumps can't beat silent fans these days.

You'd be surprised at how many silent cases there are on the market. They're definitely in single digits. Even if you cool most of the stuff passively, you've still got a power supply, a hard drive and potentially a dvd drive making a signficant amount of noise.

There are so few passive cases on the market that the suggestion you make is a

Disagree. A CPU covered by one fan will always be noisier than a CPU covered by three fans, ie with a triple radiator.

Also, as with the point above, you've got the hard drives, the accessories etc all making noise. This has it's niche, and that niche is where silent means silent, where 'very quiet' is not quiet enough.

But will it absorb the sound of people snoring when you try to explain the sound insulation properties of it?
