Even though the Deep Silence 1 is the first product that Nanoxia brought to market, it’s very impressive and is up to the same high standards as much more established manufacturers like Fractal Design and Corsair.
The steel chassis feels very solid indeed and the aesthetic design is sure to appeal to those who are looking for a subtle case.
There isn’t a great deal of difference between the Deep Silence 1 and Deep Silence 2, however the former boasts a slightly superior specification. Its dimensions are slightly greater, allowing XL-ATX compatibility and more room for large CPU coolers, as well as some trick external features like the pop up front panel connectors and the pop-up cover for the top fan bays.
We were particularly impressed with the low-noise credentials of the Deep Silence 1 as it does an excellent job of minimising the noise from the case. In fact, if you select appropriate cooling components to build your system, it would be very easy to create a near-silent system.
At a price of £85 from Quiet PC, the Deep Silence 1 is around £10 more expensive than the Deep Silence 2. For most users we would recommend opting for the Deep Silence 2, however the Deep Silence 1 is ideal for those who are looking to install a large air cooler or XL-ATX motherboard.
- Whisper quiet.
- Minimalist design.
- Decent build quality.
- Deep Silence 2 is a better option for those on a budget.
KitGuru says: Another excellent case from Nanoxia.
