Inside the Deep Silence 4
The side panels are fully interchangeable since neither has anything special to offer. Also, both panels are fully backed with dense sound deadening material to help keep things very quiet.
With the panel now off the chassis, we can see what is going on inside. At this point, we will just address that the wiring is well tended to, and that the hardware can be found strapped to the side of the HDD rack. Also, it seems that our drive rack is askew, but we cannot find any damages elsewhere.
The pair of 5.25" bays offers tool-free clips on both sides, and they work well to hold a drive very securely. You also still have the option to back these up with screws, but there is really no need to.
As we mentioned, the HDD rack offers six trays, all of which will hold either 2.5" or 3.5" drives. They are broken up to allow options for what goes where, but the bottom single bay always stays in the chassis and is not removable, where the top two sections are.
For our purposes, we only have one HDD to install with the build, so we went ahead and took the other two sections of bays out of the chassis. Also, after removing the sections, they were just out of square a bit, and easily bent back into shape.
The top of the chassis offers a removable sound proofing panel to the left, under the mesh we saw from the top. To the right of it, there is another panel of sound proofing applied to eliminate vibrations through the rest of the steel panel.
The motherboard tray offers six holes to run wiring through, three of which contain grommets, and we are also given less than ten wire tie points. With closed off side panels, the need for wire management at its highest levels is not needed in this design.
The floor of the chassis offers room for the PSU off to the left, and has four small rubber pads to keep the PSU off the floor. To the right are four holes that allow a drive to be installed there, as long as the PSU wiring does not interfere.
The back of the chassis offers a green bladed, black framed fan like we saw in the front of the chassis. Both of these fans have braided cabling, and require 3-pin connections for power. The expansion slot covers use thumbscrews to allow easier handling for mounting the cards here.
Behind the motherboard tray there is roughly 20mm of room to run wiring. Off to the left there is much more room, and we also see that the front fan controller wiring comes out right above the fan; we need to get that all connected cleanly as well.
As for the rest of the wiring, the front panel connections, the HD or AC'97 audio cable, and Native USB 3.0 cabling, everything is black right to the tips to help it blend in against the motherboard and the grommets.
