Summary:

Visually, the Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 is smooth, yet sharp, and very attractive to the eye with its matte black finish. I really like the front bezels’ two magnetically latching doors; they are very solid and the matte black throughout against the semi-gloss black doors ads depth and looks great. The left and right side panel doors are very thick, and with the addition of the sound proofing, very heavy as well. I love the design of these doors over the standard hinged design, as they slide on and off easily.

The positioning of the hidden I/O panel at the top, along with the retractable air chimney when closed, automatically shuts off the top fans for silence. The built-in fan controller behind the front door handles up to eight fans with no problem. I am not a big fan of doors on the front of my cases, but in this case it’s warranted for several reasons: one big one is silence, and the other is a nice clean looking chassis that bonds with the Deep Silence 6’s theme of cool and quiet.

 

There are many extras that add great value to this case, like removable washable filters throughout the case, tool-less 5.25″ ODD bays, and ten expansion bay slots. The abundance of features that have been implemented in the Deep Silence 6 are pretty remarkable. The preinstalled 140mm fans and fan controller along with all the incorporated water cooling solutions are awesome. The cable management that the Deep Silence 6 provides is great. I simply love the easy access to the front fans so you can remove the filters for easy cleaning. (I have enclosed a picture below of the windowed version for your viewing pleasure.)

 

If I had to nitpick about anything at all it would be that the mechanism and thumb switch on the retractable Air chimney was very stiff, and took some effort to open and close the vents. Regardless, after removal to install my 360mm rad and additional fans, I was able to loosen it up by lubing the tracks with a little grease for a smoother and more fluid operation of the thumb switch. Finally, the retractable I/O panel, when pushed does not always come up high enough and the connections are very close to the cases edge. This sometimes makes connections a tight fit.

Again I’m nitpicking here, and by no means does it take away from the value of the case. In fact, you could easily argue that these areas of tight fittings will loosen up over time and are a good example of the quality of this case.

Let me sum things up by saying, excellent engineering has its benefits. If you’re a computer enthusiast or gamer looking for the perfect server case, just read the specs. The Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 at a price point of $229.99 USD makes this a purchase that’s hard to beat. If you are in the market for a Big Tower chassis that’s very well built, offers you a plethora of options, and offers you a cool and quiet rig, then I highly recommend the Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 for your next build.

The Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 receives Pure Overclocks Editor’s Choice award.

    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.
