I decided to upgrade my rig with this case, because I like it that much; my work area for the Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 is situated off of the living room so my builds not only need to perform, but need to be very quiet for that very reason. Installing all my gear was a pleasure. All of my water cooling gear went into the rig like it was made for it. The power supply slid right in over the four raised rubber feet and against the pre-installed vibration gasket at the back. With a little pressure to compress the gasket, it installed with no problems. Both the 360mm and 240mm radiators went in with no issues as well. The 240mm rad is set up in a push-pull configuration with the first set inside the bracket and the second set to the rad itself. This left me with six fans in total pulling air in from the front. The abundance of room that this case provides (as you can see from the picture below), made it so easy that routing and hiding cables was a non-issue.
Below are pictures of the finished build without the side door in place; all the stock fans are being controlled with the built in on-board fan controller. The HDD installation consisted of one standard SATA 1TB HDD and one OCZ 256 GB SSD. They were installed up front along with an Asus BDD optical drive, a Danger Den water reservoir, and an additional fan controller. My Asus Republic of gamers motherboard looks almost lost in this case! After installing all my gear and powering it on, my first thought was, “it’s beautiful.” My second was, “I can’t hear it running!” You have to be literally right on top of it to hear anything. It’s not totally silent, but it is extremely quiet. Not only are the cooling features of the Deep Silence 6 exceptional, but with the chimney closed, it is by far one of my quietest cases to date.
Here are a couple more shots with the larger rads installed in a push pull Configuration up top and on the HDD cage bracket
