Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 8 years ago
Today I’ve been taking a look at the Nanoxia Deep Silence 1. A chassis designed from top to bottom to provide extreme levels of cooling for modern high end components, yet keep noise to a minimum with extensive sound proofing. Our friends over at QuietPC have been kind enough to send this over to us for review, it’s a really popular chassis for them and we thought you might like it too.
Normally when you start looking into extensive cooling solutions you run into issues with noise, extra fans and especially the mounting solutions for them tend require openings in the chassis to allow for airflow. This of course leaves room for plenty of sound to leave the chassis and break the peace. The next issue you have is with sound proofing, which is essentially adding padded layers and thick panels to a chassis. This sort of sound proofing can have a negative effect on your cooling performance, making it harder for heat to leave the chassis. The thicker panels and thick sound proofing material acts like a blanket for your computer. So with both of these together you end up in a vicious cycle and it’s one that’s hard to find a balance with. But have Nanoxia solved the issue with the Deep Silence 1? well that’s what we are about to find out.
As you can see from the spec sheet above, the DS1 isn’t exactly lacking in features or compatibility. With support from ATX, XL-ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards giving a wide range of support for the majority of motherboards on the market. room for eight 2.5/3.5 hard drives, two 120mm fans pre-installed in the front and one 140mm fan pre-installed in the rear.
So lets take a closer look at the Deep Silence 1 and see just what Nanoxia has to offer for your money. With a price tag of £89.99 it’s certainly a premium product, so were expecting great things from this chassis today.
