It’s clear that Nanoxia have followed very similar design guidelines to Fractal Design when creating the Deep Silence 2. The front of the case features two brushed-aluminium effect panels which are as minimalistic as those on Fractal’s Define series of cases.
The construction of the Deep Silence 2 is also very similar, boasting a substantial steel chassis with a brushed-aluminium-effect front panel. It feels just as well put together as Fractal’s models which is a great accolade for Nanoxia.
Swinging out the top portion of the front panel reveals three 5.25” bays nestled within, behind a sheet of sound-proofing foam.
There are two Nanoxia Deep Silence fans located behind the lower portion of the front panel which spin up to 1,300 rpm. The speed of these can be reduced using the built in fan controller, though, which is also located behind this panel. The slider has options for 12V, 7V and 5V.
We find the front panel connectors on the front edge of the case either side of the power button. From left to right we find the headphone and microphone jacks, two USB3.0 connectors and a single USB2.0 connector.
Moving further back on the top of the case, we can see that there are dual fan vents which support twin 120 mm or twin 140 mm fans when the sound-proofing pads have been removed.
The mounting points could easily be used for a 240 mm water cooling unit such as the Corsair H100i.
There isn’t anything particularly out of the ordinary to talk about when looking at the rear of the case. There is a quartet of external water cooling holes, a 120 mm exhaust vent in the top half of the panel and seven expansion slots further down towards the power supply mounting points at the bottom.
