Conclusion

So here we are, the end of the review and time to give my ever impending thoughts on whether the Deep Silence 6 Rev.B is a testament to what I have previously seen from Nanoxia; enthusiast’s dream or slacky Jacky? The main focal point here is the intended use of the latest case in Nanoxia’s arsenal which is for top quality and high end builds; even servers due to the HPTX support. Let’s get cracking…

Performance wise compared to the other monolithic cases on test, the Deep Silence 6 Rev.B reigns supreme which is a true testament to Nanoixia; the 5 x 140mm fans included with the case plays a huge part of this of course. Given that this case is practically silent in operation too in comparison to the Cooler Master HAF Stacker 945 which was the loudest out of the 3; the 900D held the middle ground very well but the Deep Silence 6 Rev.B was superior in all aspects. Ok the water cooling support from the other cases are superior in the grand scheme of things, they don’t offer HPTX server board support which is another big selling feature of the DS6 Rev.B chassis; something neither of the other 2 cases offer.

In terms of aesthetics, the Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 Rev.B might not be much to look at due to not having a windowed side panel, but what it lacks in “creativity”, it makes up for in style; it is a sleek, well-built and well thought out monster in my opinion. There is also a white model available which I would probably kill a man for but the black is also very nice!

Price wise, you are looking at around £220 which is a good price all things considered. The Corsair 900D is of course more expensive due to the fact it has the Corsair branding on it and the HAF Stacker 945 is not far off the DS6 Rev.B price tag; the DS6 Rev.B wins all day long for me however. With features like stackable HDD bays and the inclusion of more accessories/parts than you can shake a stick at, I actually feel like Nanoxia offer pretty good value given the expensive price tag. Add the heavy duty sound deadened clad panels into the mix and you have true German engineering; something which is world famous and cannot be replicated.

Overall the Nanoxia Deep Silence 6 Rev.B ticks all my boxes to the point of Platinum; I had a long debate with myself about this award but given its dominance over the other cases on test, the 5 x 140mm included fans and the HPTX support, the DS6 Rev.B is clearly my favourite case currently; it would certainly be my current choice for a file server or a system which I needed vast amounts of storage space for. Also given the fact that this case is practically silent, it’s also a winner of our “rare” quiet award! Good job Nanoxia, you guys deserve it!

Huge thanks to Nanoxia for sending the Deep Silence 6 Rev.B in for review and I look forward to seeing more in the near future; a white one wouldn’t go a miss at Play3r HQ!
