Nanoxia Deep Silence2 Case Review

 

Up Close:  Roof, Rear and Base

It's in the roof of the case that we find the most immediately obvious differences between the two models.  Gone are the Air chimney and pop up front I/O panel in favour of a more conventional approach.  With many feeling the pop up I/O was at best a little flimsy and the chimney a bit gimmicky (although undeniably cool in more ways than one) this is then no great loss.  The stealthed in front I/O panel is a little light on USBs, with just 2xUSB3 and 1xUSB2 but does at least have a pair of audio connections to bolster the feature count.

The rear of the case is conventional in layout as is largely determined by the ATX specification.  Two rubber grommeted tubing holes  sit above the rear fan mount.  Fitted with another green bladed 120mm Nanoxia fan.  From the look of the pre drilled holes the area is also able to accept smaller case fans, although we can't for the life of us think why you'd want to do this.

The 7 vented expansion bay covers of the Deep Silence 2 sit to the left of a second set of tubing holes with a small meshed area above providing additional ventilation.  Nanoxia provide rubber blanks to swap with the grommets enabling all the tubing holes to be sealed off.  The theory here is that this will reduce the sound escaping from the case, and is without doubt a nice touch.  It is though a little hard to understand why such efforts are being made when the expansion bay covers are vented and there is an additional meshed area just above the tubing holes which will surely negate any efforts provided by the rubber bungs to seal in the sound.

The case is supported by  4 quite tall chrome finished rubber capped feet, ensuring good ventilation and sound deadening.  A single long dust filter slots into rails proving filtered air to the PSU and base fan location area.

I think it's fair to say Tom is rightfully delighted to be at the Helm

As for getting my hands dirty....Well I'll excuse your little mistake just this once, but it happens again by George I'll.........

On a more serious note, the Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 is a cracking case and if you're in the market for a silent case it should be high up on your short list.
