Specifications, Availability and Pricing




As the top of the chart shows, the Deep Silence 4 comes in three versions: black, white, and anthracite. This design is classified as a Mini-Tower; it is compatible with either Mini-ITX or Micro-ATX motherboards, and offers four expansion slots. This high quality steel and plastic chassis is 380mm in height, 200mm wide, is 480mm from front to back, and weighs in at 7.8 kg empty. Also, now is as good of a time as any, so we may as well cover the 265mm video card limitation if the HDD bays are left intact. Once removed, there is 395mm afforded for cards. As for the air CPU coolers out there, anything 160mm or less should fit, and we will test that one out.


On the inside of the chassis, there are two 5.25" bays that are hidden behind a door in the bezel, but they are not removable without drilling rivets. Below that is a stack of six bays that will allow for either 3.5" or 2.5" drives to be installed. The chassis also offers a 2.5" drive location on the floor. These drives are broken up into three racks, one at the top containing three trays, one in the middle containing two trays, and a single bay riveted to the floor of the chassis. The top two sections are completely removable.


The motherboard tray offers wire management with grommets and tie points, and also offers access for the CPU back plate via a large cut out. Also, in the chassis you will find one 120mm fan in the front. The top has room for a 120mm or 140mm fan as well, but there is a sound deadening plate installed for when it is not in use. There is also another 120mm fan installed at the back as the exhaust.


Availability seems to be quite high as we look around the internet. You can find this chassis in any of the three colors you wish to have. This chassis offers all of the basics, and some modularity, while being able to claim near silence, as in nothing audible at a foot or so away. The chassis also offers a more simplistic aesthetic appeal.


The pricing of this niche design is more in line with others. As you will see below, the Deep Silence 4 is listed well under $100, and for those looking to house a small build in a sound proofed chassis, take a long hard look, as Nanoxia delivers their take on what makes a good mini-Tower chassis.
