Nanoxia Deep Silence DS4

Nanoxia Deep Silence DS4


Having reviewed the truly glacial DS6 It’s nice to have something a little bit less hernia inducing to look at.  Enter then the Nanoxia Deep Silence DS4.  You might think that as it carries the “4” suffix it must fall just above mid-way in the range between the DS1 and DS6.  You would however be wrong as the DS4 is actually the smallest of the Deep Silence range catering for the ever more popular M-ATX and Mini-ITX boards.  Like the other cases in the Deep Silence range the DS4 comes in Black and White as well as the Anthracite we have as the review sample.  So far we’ve been largely impressed with this German manufacturers offerings, at £65 it’s the cheapest case that Nanoxia produce and is pitched right into the middle of a very competitive sector of the market.  Best we see if it’s got what it takes.
