The Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 has a lot to offer. We love the minimalistic design which follows closely with what we’ve seen before from Fractal Design. In fact, we would go as far as to say the Deep Silence 2 is probably made by the same OEM manufacturer as there are a number of distinct similarities between them.
We would be very surprised if you were disappointed with the build quality of the Deep Silence 2, as it’s about as good as you will get for the money. The steel chassis feels very durable indeed, although this does mean the case is quite heavy.
The thermal results we recorded were good considering the excellent acoustic performance of the case. Despite the sound-proofing material not being quite up to the same level as Fractal Design’s, the case remained whisper quiet throughout the duration of our tests.
At a price of £75 from Quiet PC, the Deep Silence 2 is priced almost identically to the Fractal Design Define R4, its direct competitor. There isn’t much to choose between the two to be honest and they are both excellent cases. We would probably sway towards the Fractal because it’s white fans are a little prettier, however this is simply a matter of personal colour preference.
- Very quiet.
- Feels well built.
- Attractive design.
- Good value.
- Sound-proofing not quite as good as Fractal’s.
KitGuru says: An excellent case from Nanoxia which rivals Fractal’s finest.
