Nanoxia DS6 Deep Silence 6 Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 Review

Introduction

Is it a PC case or a danger to shipping?  When the new DS6 from Nanoxia arrived we felt we ought to notify the Coast Guard.  They usually like to know about things this big and white near the coast.  How big is it?  Well it stands just under 645mm tall.  It has a dry weight of 20Kg, and it took two chaps to deliver it, that's how big it is.  Ok so maybe it's not going to sink an ocean liner, but it sure as heck nearly sank us reviewing it.

The DS6 is the new Daddy of the Nanoxia range of low noise PC cases, and as you might imagine with all that size comes a great deal of usable space.  Not only can the DS6 accept the largest motherboards on the market and take any GPU you care to chuck into it, it can do so while providing native water cooling support for large rads in the roof and the front and while still housing up to 13 HDDs and 4 5.25" devices.  All this comes at a cost though, £200 is a lot to pay for a case, so it had better be good.

It's nice to see so many hard drive options, agree that it'd be nice to be able to remove all the bays. Well tbh, it'd be good if every manuf allowed you to remove everything from the case without issues. My first thoughts on seeing this is a home server ---- probably not what the manufs had in mind completely.

Quality matters to many, however as a home server, you're not ~really~ looking for something to show off your graphics card(s), watercooling, and so on. Which then moves me away from thinking of a server.

Nice and quiet tho...

Price too. I dunno, I'm confused.

Naoxia products are not that common in the US I am sorry to say. The DS1 and DS2 are about the only products that tend to get to the US.
