Installation:

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

    You overlooked an annoying design fault in the bottom dust filter, the need to remove it to the rear. This, for many users, would necessitate the removal of most if not all cabling in order to have sufficient clearance for removal. Users would be better served by a design permitting removal to the front of the case. That said, it is a beautiful unit.

      I am glad you read and enjoyed the review. It is a really great case. They will soon be easier to get thanks to Eagletech signing a deal with Nanoxia as the main Distro for US markets. I do not think the Vinny overlooked what you are describing as a “annoying design”. You are underestimating how large this case is. The dust filter would have to be very large and long to reach the back of the back from the front of the case. The would lead to it being flimsy and would be easily damaged by most end users. Having to be removed from the back has its obstacles but having two or more separate filters on the bottom that are removed from the side of the case would be a better option. thanks again for reading on PureOC. join the forum anytime

      Hi Ron,
      You are absolutely correct for some it will be quite annoying if they are running short cables and not able to slide it out far enough to remove the filter for cleaning
      I myself am able to slide mine out far enough to remove the back filter, still a pain though out the front only or better yet the side would have been better.
