Nanoxia Deep Silence 1
ATX Tower Case
Street Price
£74.99 (excluding VAT)

Nanoxia is a German company launched in 2006 to offer cooling computer fans. It made the jump into the PC case business this year with the Deep Silence 1, an ATX tower obviously meant to be quieter than others. Like the Corsair Obsidian 550D, Fractal Design Define R series, and countless others, it shares basic design elements that Antec pioneered with the P180 and its successors. However, it does have a few unique features that may help differentiate it in the sprawling enthusiast case marketplace.

The box.

The Deep Silence 1.

Our DS1 sample is the black model, also available in white, silver, and anthracite. The exterior has a matte finish except for the doors at the front which are mildly glossy. Its appearance is understated with clean lines and a notable lack of adornment, a style that has become synonymous with this type of case. It's a bit on the large side, with a volume of about 61 L which puts it more or less on par with the Corsair Obsidian 550D. The DS1 is equipped noise dampening sheets, a dual channel fan controller, three case fans, and the most interesting feature, an "air chimney," a panel at the top of the case that can be raised for added ventilation.


Aside from a nice full-size, color assembly manual, the DS1 ships with a big bag of screws and manuals, rubber seals for watercooling tubing, a 5.25" to 3.5" external drive cover adapter, and an EPS12V/AUX12V extension cable. The latter is a welcome edition as some power supplies don't have the required cable length to reach the connector if routed behind the motherboard tray.
