Review of Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 DS2 Mid-Tower PC Case


TestFreaks Data











 

 

Conclusion

I want my computers to be as quiet as possible without sacrificing any cooling ability or performance and if you’re like me then you can appreciate the Nanoxia Seep Silence 2 as it truly is a silent case.

The Nanoxia DS2 is made for silence and it achieves this by using a large amount of sound dampening material on most of the surfaces of the case and this works very well. I couldn’t even hear that my system was running at all when I hit the power button.

The DS2 comes with three fans pre-installed for you but if that isn’t enough you can add up to five more.

The DS2 isn’t quite as feature rich as the DS1, but the DS2 includes the ability to control six fans thanks to the built-in fan controller so you can adjust speeds as needed. The DS2 has plenty of room for even the largest video cards, and the case will help keep them quiet.

The DS2 is very heavy even when empty so I don’t think you’ll be taking it anywhere with you once you get your system installed.

It would be nice if there was a little bit more room on the back of the motherboard tray, I found it quite difficult to get the right side panel back on once the thick wires and plastic connectors were back there.

I would also like to see a bit more space at the top of the inside of the case. Without any fans installed it’s fine, but once you install any fans you’ll have a hard time working at the top of the case.

As far as price, the Deep Silence 2 is up for pre-order on NewEgg for $89.99 and I think it’s well worth it for that price, you’re getting a an excellent case that’s well made and silent. The DS1 is priced at $109.99, so if you really need the features of the DS1, then I would get the DS2 personally as it’s virtually the same case. I should note both of them have a release date of early or mid April, the 10th for the DS1 the 11th for the DS2 specifically.
