Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 Case Review

The Deep Silence 1 has pretty heavy side panels due to the thick sound-proofing material on the inside.

Nanoxia have opted for a fairly standard layout for the Deep Silence 2 and have painted the inside of the case entirely black. This will compliment most component choices aesthetically.

Installing the motherboard in the case is pretty simple, although we were required to install the stand-offs before securing down the motherboard which can be a little fiddly.

For those who want to install the CPU cooler after the motherboard, there is a sizeable cut out section in the motherboard tray which lets you install the backplate.

There is plenty of room for long power supplies (up to 200mm) in the floor of the case, however longer models do obstruct some of the cable routing holes. There are plenty of cable routing holes, though, so this doesn’t cause significant issues.

In total there are seven hard drive bays which all support both 2.5” and 3.5” drives. These are very similar to the drive bays used by Fractal Design and feature high-quality metal caddies.

The graphics card must be secured in place using thumbscrews, as Nanoxia haven’t chosen to integrate a more complicated tool-less mechanism. We found these screws were quite difficult to tighten with our fingers, so we would recommend using a screwdriver to ensure it’s properly secured.

There is a generous amount of room behind the motherboard tray for cable routing, which lets us achieve a tidy build without much effort.
