Nanoxia Deep Silence2 Case Review

 

Up Close:  Base Rear and Roof

The base of the case is a spacious area with room for even the longest of PSUs.  Large mesh areas provide PSU ventilation as well as intake for a floor mounted 120mm or 140mm fan (if you absolutely insist)  For a "silent" case the rubber topped PSU isolation feet are surprisingly small, we'll have to see if this is to it's detriment when we come to testing.

The vented expansion bay brackets are held firmly in place by black knurled thumb bolts.  Above these we find an acid green bladed 120mm fan.  The fan is identical to the two units in the front of the case and is one of Nanoxias own 1300RPM units.  Performance wise the fans generate 60.1CFM and a static pressure of 1.27mm H20, with a given noise level of 14.2dBA.  Unlike the retail fans however they are not secured with rubber anti vibration pages but rather normal fan screws.

There's barely an inch of the Deep Silence 2 that isn't covered in the thick sound dampening material, and the roof is no exception.  The padding upstairs is split into 3 separate sections with the two rearmost being removable should you wish to fit fans in this location.  Unlike the original case there's no water cooling support up here which is something of a shame.

With the blanks removed we see that despite the absence of the chimney there is ample ventilation to be had via the roof.  The image below left shows the grommeted access hole for the 12 pin CPU power cable.

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.
