Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 review: the price of silence

It's pretty silent, but at the cost of almost all cooling

By ,


Introduction

Late last year we tested a pretty interesting chassis called the Nanoxia Deep Silence 1. It offered a number of clever features and pretty good performance, good enough for a Silver Award at the time. Since then a second model was introduced, the Deep Silence 2. It's actually not a successor, but a more basic and affordable version. We took a closer look. 


The Deep Silence 2 has an average price of just below 100 euros, and two fairly unique qualities. It's big enough for E-ATX motherboards, which is rare for this price segment. It's also designed to fit a radiator for liquid cooling. And like the Deep Silence 1, silence is supposed to be paramount.

Comparing

There's no denying there's a lot of competition in this segment. We've tested 30 chassis in this price class, ranging from 80-120 euros. The Deep Silence 2 falls exactly in the middle. Below you can see the wildly differing volumes of the chassis in this segment, based on their external dimensions.

The Deep Silence 2 is fairly large at 58 dm³, since it's pretty deep. It's not much smaller than the slightly more expensive Deep Silence 1. The weight of 10.8 kg is on the high side.
