From the Manufacturer

With the Deep Silence 6, we present a truly gigantic HPTX case of the next generation of silent PC cases. As both the Deep Silence 1 and Deep Silence 2 were able to impress testers all over the world and were presented with lots of awards, we now offer you a gigantic Big Tower. The enormous case offers not only lots of space for your projects, but also new and innovative technologies, like the Active Air Chimney to actively improve the ventilation of the case. The Deep Silence 6 is similar in exterior design to the first model of our case series. The front of the case is equipped with two soundproof doors: Behind the upper cover the user will find four 5.25 inch bays, a 2-channel fan control (with sliders), as well as the reset-button. Behind the second door, two low-noise 140 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. As many as 4 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, Mic, and Audio connectors are available. The panel can easily be embedded in the cover if the connectors are not needed. The cover also mounts the unique Active Air Chimney for effective, active 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. You can mount HTPX, E-ATX, XL-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards in the Deep Silence 6. Whether you are planning a particularly smooth-running high-end gaming system with extensive water cooling or are looking for an enclosure that can be used perfectly as a data storage server with multiple hard drives - the Deep Silence 6 is perfect for you.

First off I have been building systems for 20 years. I have been through dozens
of cases and I can easily say this is one of the nicest. It is very well thought out
and quality is excellent. I only had one problem. During shipping the top of the
case was damaged. Amazon gave me a decent discount due to this because
they didn't have any more in stock. Nanoxia were great about things also and sent
me out the replacement parts that were broken. All in all i am very happy. Great
customer service from amazon and nanoxia.

Great case with a couple issues Jan. 11 2014
By Jordan Cetrone - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have to say, I love this case. However, there are 4 issues, 3 minor and 1 major, that stopped me from giving this case 5 stars.

The major issue: The top fan slots will NOT work with a water cooler such as the Corsair H55. There is not enough clearance between the top of the case and the top of the motherboard for a fan AND a radiator. The Antec Kuhler 650 MAY work on top, due to it's low profile fan bracket, but I cannot guarantee that. Making the case a half inch taller would completely solve this issue.

The 1st minor issue: I would have liked them to give more room on the back side for cables; and extra half inch would make dealing with the cables and installing the side plate much easier.

The 2nd minor issue: The routing for the faceplate cables is not very good. They send all of the cables through the inside of the case, instead of into the back side, making it harder to cleanly run them.

The 3rd minor issue: For a silent case that is meant to be used for home theater/bedroom situations, the green LED ring around the power button is exceptionally annoying.

Perfect balance between quiet performance, cooling capabilities, and future expansion. May 1 2014
By Steven W. Nguyen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Like the title says, if you're considering this case, you're looking for quiet performance, cooling capabilities, and room for any future expansion needs - look no further, it's this one. There is a serious lack of cases like this. I believe Corsair has a case with noise dampening material but doesn't look nearly as sharp as this one. Really the only contender to this class of case is the Fractal Design Define series, which by the way, I returned my Fractal Design Define XL to get this one. I had no issues with it and it's a fine case, I just saw more potential with this one.


1. Can run as quietly as you want you it to (obviously depending on your setup).
2. Aesthetics. This is subjective but the understated, minimalist looks of this case looks sharp at home or a professional work environment.
3. Cooling capabilities. I have eleven 140mm fans and a high end CPU air cooler running in this beast with plenty of room left for a custom water loop if that time ever comes.
4. Expansion. Seriously there is no need to ever get another case.

1. Heavy. Not really a con for me at all but it might be for you. Just be prepared.
2. No SSD brackets. There's plenty of room in the back for two SSD brackets.
3. Hard drive cage is not modular like the Define XL.

Compared to the Fractal Design Define XL, this case is over $100 more. In my opinion it's totally worth it. It's one of the best cases out there. In my opinion, the only case above this (at least in the basic consumer world) is the Corsair 900D.

One more thing! I read in earlier reviews that out of the box the header cables were routed straight through the hard drive cage and they had to reroute them. Mine came out of the box with the header cables routed correctly. I don't know if Nanoxia listened or maybe whoever routed their cables was just having a bad day.

Good case, not so good customer service April 9 2014
By p dc - Published on Amazon.com

Very quiet
- WD 3.5" 1.5TB Green HDD is barely audible now.
Great air flow
- The included fans are not only quiet, but they also move a substantial amount of air.
HDD sleds are really nice
- Though it's not entirely tool-less, they lock into the cage properly and without hassle.
- Rubber anti-vibration grommets for 3.5" drives. One of my hard disk drives is 2.5", so I used a 2.5" to 3.5" HDD tray to take advantage of this feature.
Dust filters
- The front fans swivel out making it easy to clean both the filters and the fans.

Not the best build quality
- The front right foot and the back left foot of the case weren't level. Nothing a bit of card board between the foot and the bottom of the case couldn't fix, but it's still a slight issue worth bringing up.
- Left-side panel wouldn't lock-in properly. I had to manipulate it a bit to get it to fit. Given the overall design of the case, I'm surprised the old-school notch mechanism was chosen.
- Secondary slide in mounting spot for the removable hard drive cages did not lock in properly. This issue was alleviated by slightly shaving (less than 0.5mm) the edge of the locking hole. The cages now have an audible click.

I can overlook these minor cons because they are user-solvable, but my case came with a DOA power button and fan controller. I have only been able to get ahold of international (non-US) tech support, but word from eagletechusa and nanoxiausa have not been heard. I'll update my review if this ever gets solved and for now I'll be using the reset button to power on.

Nearly perfect case Jan. 19 2014
By RcketScientist - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
4.5 Stars if I could do so.

I spent a lot of time researching cases for my next PC. In the past I simply picked up the latest Antec, but their designs stagnated a few years ago. I generally get multiple builds out of a case so I was willing to spring for something that would be worth rebuilding and easy to do so. I was leaning towards Fractal Designs, but Amazon doesn't carry their Define r4.

While trying to find a case that fit my needs that Amazon carried I stumbled upon a review for this box. It sounded perfect and it nearly is so.

Great routing grommets. You'll never feel you can't get a wire where it needs to go.

Great filters: Every inlet is filtered so you can control dust. This is extremely important and it's a shame not all cases have these now.

Quiet: The hard drives are by far the loudest things in my PC now.

Easy cleaning: The filters are easily accessible and the front fans even swing out to be cleaned without opening the case!

Power extension: This is a thoughtful addition. You often need to buy an extension yourself to reach the power connection on the motherboard with a bottom mounted PSU.

Drive trays: They're designed to accommodate 3.5 or 2.5 drives, so no need to buy adapters.

Needs a hair more space behind the tray for routing. It required a bit of contortion to get the back panel completely aligned and closed.

The front panel connectors are routed into the case poorly. You can route them out the back yourself, but why aren't they there to begin with?

The drive chassis design could be better. You're supposed to be able to move one onto the bottom of the case allowing more direct airflow to the graphics area, however I could not get the chassis to mount on the bottom, it would just slide back out. Even if it did mount it might not have left enough room for the PSU cabling. Therefore I had to leave the chassis in front of the fan to mount one drive (of four). If you have three or less drives it won't matter because you can simply remove the extra chassis entirely.

That said my gripes are relatively minor. This case is the closest to perfect that I've seen yet. I hope they make an improvement to the "modular" drive chassis in future revisions.

Functionally well-designed and aesthetically pleasing. Dec 5 2013
By Andy Pants - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It's surprisingly difficult to find a computer tower that has form AND function. This NANOXIA tower manages to look good while also having many features one would expect from a higher-end computer tower.

- Clean, minimal look. No pointless swooshes, excess angles, or cheesy curves that would make it look like something out of a cyberpunk movie. The front USB and headphone/microphone ports are attached to a panel that pops out of the top with a push, and can be hidden flush against the top of the tower if you don't need them. Why can't more computer cases be modern and classy?
- Quiet, thanks to sound-dampening foam on the side panels and front door panels. The hard drive bays also have silicone grommets that dampen vibration from conventional platter hard drives. The built-in fan controller (hidden behind the top front door panel) makes it easy for you to control the balance between cooling and noise levels. The three included fans are also pretty quiet as well. I always aim to make my computer builds as silent as possible, and this case definitely does a good job at stifling the computer-y noises.
- Organized, thanks to the ability to route your cabling behind the motherboard. There are also some easy-access features, like a removable back-panel that will allow you to mount aftermarket CPU heatsinks without having to completely remove the motherboard. The removable dust filters on the front vent to clean and maintain your front chassis fans.

- Surprising amount of plastic. The side panels are powder-coated metal, but the top panel, along with the front door panels, are all made of plastic. This undoubtedly saves on weight and costs, but may not be quite as durable.
- The power LED at the top of the case is in the form of a green ring, and it flashes orange with HDD activity. Green is definitely unique (since most power lights seem to be blue these days), but I think a white LED would have been classier.
