Aerocool Dead Silence Gaming Cube Review


IMG_8681

The front and top panels have received a white leather finish that is soft and smooth to the touch.

Apart from the standard 5.25″ drive bay Aerocool has also included the option to install a 3.5″ drive, facilitating the installation of a small fan controller such as the Aerocool EasyWatch. Alternatively, those longing for the dark ages of computing can install a floppy disk drive.

At the bottom of the front panel we can see the only visible Aerocool branding on the case.

Up top we can see the Power button, Reset button, microphone and headphone jacks have been placed on the left-hand side of the case. The right-hand side houses two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports.

Moving slightly to the left we can see the relatively large window. The window is 270 mm wide to show off even the largest of graphics cards.

A closer look at the I/O panel shows the cut-outs in the removable top cover. The glossy black finish surrounding the ports further accentuates the black and white design.

Moving back to the front of the case we can get a better view of the Aerocool logo. As noted, this is the only visible piece of branding on the case, keeping the design low-key.

Turning the case around we can see there are 4 expansion slot covers, two rubber grommets for watercooling tubes and horizontal I/O plate cut-out.

We can also catch a glimpse of the included 120 mm fan here.

In our introduction we mentioned that Aerocool sent us an additional side panel without a window. The above image shows what the case looks like with this panel in place.

A final shot of the back shows the removable dust filter underneath the power supply.

Here we can also see the single screw that is used to secure expansion cards.

Underneath the case we find a removable vented cover. The feet provide 35 mm clearance. Although this case is most likely to reside on a desk, a power supply will not suffer from a lack of ventilation.

Rounding things out on the outside we can see the lock mechanism holding the top cover in place. Aerocool include an additional mesh cover with every case for users who want to use top exhaust fans.

  1. The core cube of the case is identical to the Xigmatek Aquila, it’s just the plastic and connectors that are different.

  2. I really like the look of this – very attractive, and inexpensive. going to order one.

  3. it could’ve been a good case for me… the only thing restricting me in acquiring one in the near future is the psu length restriction… max is at 160… while my psu is at 180… >.<

  4. Does the front intake fan have a dust filter?
