Du har måske hørt om producenten Nanoxia før, eller måske ikke? Nanoxia er en tysk producent der producerer kabinetter, køling og andet tilbehør til computere. Mottoet lyder ”Turn on German Engineering”, hvilket jo i sig selv lyder meget godt. For os der er lidt bil fanatiker, ved vi at tyske biler oftest oser af kvalitet hele vejen igennem – så mon Nanoxia kan leve op til det at være ”tysk” ?
Vi har fået tilsendt et af Nanoxia´s kabinetter i form af deres Deep Silence 1, som byder på et yderst stilfuldt og pænt kabinet i sort. Designet ligner meget hvad vi normalt finder hos Fractal Design, dog med nogle fede tweaks. Vi finder blandt andet to låger i fronten, tre inkluderede blæsere og et specielt låg i toppen af kabinettet, som kan justeres alt efter hvilket airflow man ønsker at have i kabinettet. Men skal vi ikke bare jumpe ud i det og kaste et blik på Deep Silence 1 kabinettet?
Af tilbehør til kabinettet finder vi faktisk en pæn lille stak, der i blandt en manual i farver, dette er ikke noget vi ser særlig tit. Der ud over er der en 5.25” til 3.5” adapter, nogle skruer, strips, gummidupper og et forlænger kabel til CPU-strømmen.

We proudly present the next generation of PC cases: the Deep Silence 1.
In accordance with current requirements, this innovative tower - as the foundation for a whole new line of future products - offers the perfect symbiosis of ideal system cooling and sensationally low noise levels – especially for the use of high-end PC-systems. Numerous test awards at home and abroad demonstrate this impressively.
Exquisite looks and timeless elegance characterize the appearance – the Deep Silence 1 is deliberately simple in design. Common controls were inconspicuously integrated into the exterior surface, maintaining the linear design flow. The high performance demands on a case of superior quality have been taken into account with the Nanoxia Deep Silence 1.
• Classic design - Made in Germany
• Highly efficient, stealthy ventilation system
• Maximum functionality and adaptability
• Particularly quiet thanks to its integrated sound dampening system and focused design
The front of the case is equipped with two soundproof doors: Behind the upper cover the user will find three 5.25 inch bays, a 2-channel fan control (with sliders), as well as the reset-button. Behind the second door, two low-noise 120 mm Nanoxia fans are mounted. Magnets integrated in the doors ensure a fast closing and easy opening.
The I/O-panel can be found on the top cover of the case with 2 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, Mic, and Audio connectors available. The panel can easily be embedded in the cover if the connectors are not needed. The cover also mounts the unique Nanoxia Air Chimney for effective case ventilation. Again, this is easily retractable. This ensures that the simple look of the case is maintained, without sacrificing useful features and options for ventilation.
The side panel offers the opportunity to install a 120 or 140 mm side fan. The opening is closed by a succinct, square fan cover so as to preserve the uniform appearance of the case.
In the course of the many years of development work, the focus was always on two requirements: minimize noise and minimize system temperatures:
The side panels and top cover are fitted with specially designed, noise reducing insulation materials to minimize and absorb any noises. The solid front doors use sound absorbing materials contribute significantly to the most effective noise reduction.
The hard disk drives are mounted using rubber suspension, in order to absorb vibrations before they even are noticeable. The power supply rests on rubber mounts, with a suspension frame available on the back. Rubber suspended case feet, crafted in the classy "hi-fi" look, in order to safely contain all vibrations.
The Deep Silence 1 is manufactured from 0.7mm thick steel. By using the highest quality materials, optimal noise insulation is ensured while providing a very stable case. Also responsible for the quietness of the case are the three pre-installed Nanoxia fans of the brand new “Deep Silence” series. This fan-series was optimized for the best possible mix of silence and cooling capacity. The Deep Silence 1 case is fitted with a 2-channel fan control for up to 6 fans.
The unique Nanoxia Air can be left closed during normal operations, in order to preserve the clean look of the case line. If need be, the Air Chimney can, as easily as switching a button, be set to provide passive enhanced case ventilation.
Intelligent ventilation system
As many as three high-quality Nanoxia Deep Silence fans are preinstalled in the case. Behind the front cover, two 120 mm fans rotate at a maximum of 1,300 RPM. The fans are located in special swiveling brackets which allow for simple removal of the fans and easy access to the serial dust filters.
At 14.2 dB(a), the Nanoxia Deep Silence 120 mm fans generate an air flow of about 60.1 CFM and a static air pressure of 1.27 mm H²O. Mounted at the back of the case is a 140 mm fan , rotating at roughly 1,100 RMP while generating an air flow of about 68.5 CFM and a static pressure of 1.08 mm H²O at a noise level of 14.4 dB(a).
The integrated fan control allows optimizing settings to balance low system temperatures and the lowest possible noise levels, even at an almost full fan assembly. Thanks to the standard fan control, an individual compromise between low system temperatures and the lowest possible noise level can be achieved, even with a full fan assembly.
To actively assist the ventilation of the case under extreme conditions, two 120 or 140 mm fan can be operated under the top cover, when the “Air Chimney” is opened. In order to optimize the cooling of the graphics card, an additional 120 or 140 mm fan can be mounted in the left side panel. At the bottom of the case, another 120 or 140 mm fan can be accommodated. Both fans are of course equipped with effective dust filters.
The Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 offers a variety of very convenient product features:
A special feature of the case is the mounts for the front fans. Behind the lower door, 2 dust filter equipped holding frames can be found, each receiving one of the 120 mm fan. A simple pressure on the holding frame (it works using the push-pin principle) releases the anchoring, the flap can be opened, and dust filter and fan can be removed and cleaned very easily. It's that simple!
As can be expected, the optical drives can be mounted without requiring tools. A 5.25 inch to 3.5 inch adaptor is included to permit for example the installation of a card reader.
In order to mount up to 8 2.5 inch or 3.5 inch hard disk drives, three fully modular HDD cages are provided. Two of these cages are designed for three HDD and the third holds up to two. In the interests of allowing as much personalization as possible, the three hard disk drive cages can be removed and combined as desired. This way it is possible to accommodate two, three, five, six, or eight data storage drives in the Deep Silence 1.
Alternatively, you can put the hard drive cages for two or three drives towards the power supply. Please note that this case no longer permits fan assembly on the bottom; the maximum depth of the power supply is about 200 mm. The hard drives are installed in special mounting carriages, which are designed to accommodate both 2.5" HDD / SSD as well as 3.5" HDD. Screws with rubber suspension are used to hold the drives in place.
Due to this unique versatility, the installation of longer graphics cards up to a maximum length of an incredible 445 mm is possible. Even if two HDD cages are removed, at least five assembly bays for HDDs remain. When using all of the HDD cages, the maximum length of VGA cards is 315 mm. By removing unneeded HDD cages, the serial front fans can more effectively cool the VGA cards.
Of particular interest for water cooling enthusiasts is the ability to accommodate a 240 mm radiator below the steel top cover. By not using any of the HDD-cages, another 240 mm radiator can be fitted behind the front cover (behind the front mounted 120 mm fans). Depending on the motherboard standard, the additional mounting frame can be used to accommodate two or three HDD's.
Four additional rubber hose guides for external water cooling solutions can be found on the rear side.
The Tower offers a lavish cable management system. All openings in the motherboard tray are fitted with rubber guards. Even when using Micro-ATX motherboards it is possible to hide the cables behind the motherboard tray.
The internal space of the Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 is enormous:
In addition to graphics cards with a maximum length of up to 315 mm (445 mm), all current CPU coolers can easily be accommodated. On the back side are as many as eight PCI expansion slots - the installation of a multi-GPU system is thus possible without difficulty.
