Nanoxia DS6 Deep Silence 6 Review
Is it a PC case or a danger to shipping? When the new DS6 from Nanoxia arrived we felt we ought to notify the Coast Guard. They usually like to know about things this big and white near the coast. How big is it? Well it stands just under 645mm tall. It has a dry weight of 20Kg, and it took two chaps to deliver it, that's how big it is. Ok so maybe it's not going to sink an ocean liner, but it sure as heck nearly sank us reviewing it.
The DS6 is the new Daddy of the Nanoxia range of low noise PC cases, and as you might imagine with all that size comes a great deal of usable space. Not only can the DS6 accept the largest motherboards on the market and take any GPU you care to chuck into it, it can do so while providing native water cooling support for large rads in the roof and the front and while still housing up to 13 HDDs and 4 5.25" devices. All this comes at a cost though, £200 is a lot to pay for a case, so it had better be good.
