The Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 is constructed of plastic and steel and weighs 11.34
kg or 24.9 lb. The overall dimensions are 51.7 x 22.0 x 53.2 cm or 20.4 x 8.7
x 20.9 inches (H x W x D) for a total case volume of 60.5 L. The exterior has
a matte finish that doesn't pick up smudges as easily as others, but if the
paint is scratched, you'll end up with some grey powdery streaks.
The front bezel has a pair of doors, one for accessing the 5.25
inch bays and fan controller, the other for the dual 120 mm front fan
assembly. Both are lined with soft sheets of foam and secured using
small magnets. They don't feel particularly strong, wiggly up and down
noticeably. A single push on the left side ejects the fan holders which
grip the fans using simple plastic clips. Easily removable fine mesh
dust filters are also included. Intake ventilation comes from slits
in the side and a slot at the bottom.
The front ports (2 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.0, mic, and headphone) are
in a bar on the top panel, and it can be pushed down flush against the
case when not in use. The power button is positioned at the top of the
bezel while the less often used reset button shares a 5.25 inch bay
with the fan controller. This avoid the problem of accidental system
reboots when the reset button is too openly accessible. Nanoxia has
opted for a two channel fan controller with sliding controls rather
than knobs or switches.
The Deep Silence 1 has unique chimney vent that extends upward
via a slider at the side. Perhaps for added ventilation during extensive
gaming? It may be preferable to exposed fan grills.
A long rectangular dust filter services the power supply and an optional 120/140 mm fan mount on the bottom of the case.
Visible at the back is the handhold for removing the top cover, a 140 mm exhaust fan, and two sets of watercooling holes. The side panels are secured at the rear in the traditional way, with a pair of thumbscrews a piece.
According to Nanoxia, the panels are lined with a combination of foam to help with noise, and bitumen to reduce vibration. The sheets are about 2 mm thick and very stiff, reinforcing the thin side panels considerably.
