Inside the Deep Silence 6

The insides of both panels are covered with a dense material used to sound proof this chassis. The left panel has a cover currently screwed into place, but once removed there is the option for 120mm or 140mm fans to go here. Also--and this is no joke--each door weighs right around ten pounds, so be prepared.

Our first view inside shows the wiring being run through the grommet in the tray to keep it all-in-one place. Under the bottom tray in the HDD rack, there is a box of hardware to allow the build to continue.

There are four 5.25-inch bays offered in this design, and both sides of these bays use these bulky-but-secure tool-free locks. We also found a bay adapter tied up to the bottom of the bays that allows one bay to convert to a 3.5-inch bay.

Right behind the front fans, there are two racks stacked that offer five slide-out trays in each. Each tray will allow for either a 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drive to be installed. If ten bays are still not enough, we also have another three bay rack that is movable to the left to allow water cooling to go onto the bracket on the main HDD rack, or it can be removed completely.

The top of the chassis has a pair of 140mm fan pre-installed, but they can easily be removed for more ambitious cooling like a 360mm or 280mm radiator. There is also a good offset to the motherboard, easily allowing for a radiator and fan not to block off the motherboard.

The motherboard tray covers quite the list of compatible motherboards and also has two cooler access holes for dual-socket motherboards. With twelve holes and grommets to tend to the wiring and roughly ten places to tie wiring to, having a clean looking build should be fairly easy to accomplish.
