The interior of the Deep Silence 1 has a traditional ATX layout with the usual suspects, a cutout for CPU heatsink installation, cable routing holes with grommets along the edges and tool-less optical drive mounting system. The most notable feature is the three modular hard drive cage which fit very tightly together (it takes quite a bit of force to remove) but the structure as a whole is still susceptible to lateral vibration. The rest of the interior is well built.

The interior is spacious, especially if the top two hard drive cages are pulled out. The bottom cage also comes out, but requires screws to be removed at the bottom and behind the front bezel.

3.5 and 2.5 inch drives are installed sideways with damped trays that snap into place. A total of eight drives can be mounted.

If you're willing to sacrifice the bottom fan placement, one of the drive cages can be moved next to the power supply.

Supplementing the larger routing holes are a moderate number of cable tie down points that are angled slightly. We're not sure if this is an improvement over the usual vertical type.

Underneath the top we can see another piece of foam covering the underside of the chimney. A pair of 120/140 mm fans or a 240 mm radiator can be installed here.

The fan controller is powered via a 4-pin molex connector and supports six 3-pin fans in total, three per channel.
