Aerocool Dead Silence DS200 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 7 years ago
The left side panel is finished in powdered black and held in place by a pair of quick release thumb screws. You can purchase one with a side panel window, but that really is just a matter of preference.
The right side panel is the same as the left.
The front panel is really nicely finished with a soft leather-touch material in bright red. It may be a little too red for some, but I do like it and there are several other colour options available to suit individual taste.
Around the back you’ll notice the top panel is raised to allow room for a top mounted radiator or extra fans. The back panel features two routing grommets, a 120mm fan mount, seven ventilated expansion slot covers and a bottom mounted PSU with dust filter.
The top panel has all kind of stuff going on; at the front we’ve got a four USB ports (2 x 3.0 and 2 x 2.0), a fan controller / temperature read out hub with multi-colour LCD display as well as the usual power, reset and HD audio ports.
A button at the back allows you to easily unlock the flat top cover and access the interior fan / radiator mounts. Elongated screw holes allow for different fan spacings to improve compatibility and a big cut-out near the back allows you to pass through the pump of an AIO water cooler.
The ventilated top panel clips in easy enough and allows you access to top panel airflow.
A curved underside panel forms two full width feet to provide a stable base for the chassis, whilst four tough rubber grips should help keep the chassis from sliding around on harder surfaces.
The PSU dust filter slides out from the back of the chassis for easy maintenance.
