Nanoxia Unveils Deep Silence 6 Full-Tower Case

Nanoxia took its Deep Silence concept to the next level with Deep Silence 6, a gargantuan ATX full-tower case. This monstrosity of the silent-type has room for large motherboard form-factors such as XL-ATX, HPTX, and EATX, apart from conventional ATX, with so much room to spare, that you can latch in two independent liquid-cooling loops, each with large radiators, all that with acoustic dampening. The case offers four 5.25-inch drive bays, and ten 3.5-inch ones, which each convert to 2.5-inch bays. Ventilation appears to include two 140 mm front intakes, a couple of 140 mm top exhausts that can be swapped out for a large 360 x 120 radiator, two 120 mm conveyors near the drive cage that can make room for a 240 x 120 mm radiator (or 360 x 120, if you don't mind blocking three 5.25-inch bays), two 120 mm bottom intakes, and of course, a 120 mm rear exhaust. The top vents open out, and can be completely shut. Two doors cover the front.

Nanoxia Teases New Box-type Mini-ITX Case

Nanoxia, of the DeepSilence fame, unveiled a string of new yet-unnamed cases. One of them is this box-type mini-ITX beauty. Roughly the size and shape of a micro-ATX tower, this is definitely one for those with an ITX itch, or at least those who prefer a smaller motherboard, with rest of the case' room better spent accommodating drives and cooling. The case gives you a horizontal mini-ITX motherboard tray with two expansion slots for double-slot graphics cards, and room for CPU coolers as much as 170 mm tall. The case' lone 5.25-inch drive bay creeps into the motherboard tray just a little, but shouldn't obstruct CPU coolers. The bottom half of the case gives you a vertically-oriented PSU bay, a drive-cage that gives you three 3.5-inch bays that each convert to a couple of 2.5-inch ones; and room for a 140 x 280 mm radiator. The case appears to be made of SECC steel, ABS, and aluminum highlights and feet. Ventilation includes two 140 mm front intakes, 120 mm and 140 mm rear exhausts, and provision for a 140 mm top exhaust.

Lian Li PC-D600 Box-type Case Pictured

It looks like Corsair's Carbide Air 540D will have company very soon, from Lian Li and its PC-D600 split-compartment aluminum case. While the 540D gives you a narrower drive/power compartment than the board/expansion one, the PC-D600 is split right in the middle, and the two compartments have largely the same volume. Another difference is that the PSU bay is located in the board/expansion compartment, with the other compartment being dedicated to drive bays, and room for a large 140 x 420 mm radiator. Like Corsair's joybox, both side panels of the PC-D600 are windowed.

The entire length of the front side of the board compartment is lined with 140 mm fan intakes, it packs a 120 mm rear exhaust, and provision for two 120 mm top exhausts. With its eight expansion slots, the case seats standard ATX motherboards. The drive compartment, on the other hand, is lined with 5.25-inch bays covers, which double up as three 140 mm front intakes. All nine vacant 5.25-inch bays can be populated, or drive cages that convert three 5.25-inch bays to three 3.5-inch bays, can be added. Additional drives can be stacked up in the space between these 5.25-inch bays and the rear, or you could use it up for liquid cooling components, such as reservoir and pumps. The front utility panel gives you four USB 3.0 ports (standard header), and HDA front-panel jacks.

Cooler Master Silencio 352 Pictured

Cooler Master unveiled its Silencio 352 micro-ATX case for gaming PC builds. Its design focuses on minimizing noise, with sound absorbing material lining most of its panels, including the piano black door that covers its front. Measuring 200 x 378 x 453 mm (WxHxD), and dry-weighing about 4.7 kg, the case is made of SECC steel and an unknown "polymer." Effort is made to make sure the drive cages don't get in the way of long graphics cards. The case can handle graphics cards as long as 35 cm, so a Radeon HD 7990 should have no problem fitting in. You get one 5.25-inch drive bay, three 3.5-inch bays, and a total of four 2.5-inch bays. Cooling system includes two 120 mm front intakes, a top 120 mm exhaust, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. The case was shown housing a micro-ATX Core i7 Sandy Bridge-E build, complete with a liquid CPU cooler, a longer than usual modular PSU, a GeForce GTX 670 graphics card, and a couple of 2.5-inch SSDs, all without looking stuffy.

Antec Nineteen Hundred Stands Tall...Really Tall

At Antec's Computex booth, one exhibit literally stuck its head out, the new Nineteen Hundred super-tower chassis. This two foot-long ATX full-tower features nine expansion slot bays, and supports HPTX, EATX, and conventional ATX motherboard form-factors. It features well-partitioned motherboard, drive, power, and peripheral areas, and is made of 0.8 mm-thick steel. The case offers a total of 17 drive bays, including three 5.25-inch, fourteen 2.5-inch or 12 3.5-inch (configurable). It features two PSU bays, letting you add redundant or supplementary PSUs. Its cooling system includes three 120 mm front intakes, two 120 mm top exhaust that can be used to latch a 240 x 120 radiator, two 120 mm fans that circulate the air within the case, and a rear 120 mm exhaust. The case below is pictured with lime green highlights, we suspect more highlight color options could be in the works.

Akasa Also Shows Off Newton NUC Cases in Three Trims

Akasa's Newton NUC (next unit of computing) fanless case made its debut with the Galileo, way back in March. The case was formally unveiled at Computex, in three brushed-metal trims: the black one we've already seen, silver, and gold, all of which are made of anodized aluminum. Like most other 4" x 4" NUC cases, Newton's body doubles up as heatsink for the CPU. The cases will be available in variants that support the D33217GKE and D33217CK connector layouts. The cases further feature Kensington lock slots, and VESA mounts, so you can tuck them away behind your displays.

In Win Also Shows Off KingSize H-Frame Case

The original H-Frame won In Win quite some praise for ingenuity, but left enthusiasts asking for something similar-looking and bigger. The company responded with the new KingSize H-Frame, on display at Computex. Pictured below next to the original, the KingSize H-Frame is an ATX full-tower that supports large motherboards, in the EATX, HPTX, XL-ATX, SSI-EEB, SSI-CEB, form-factors, apart from the common ATX. Much like the original, its design revolves around stacks of metal rings working as framework for the rest of the case, only this time they protrude out of the front sheet in a jagged pattern. In Win also replaced the brushed aluminum side panels with the same tempered, mirror-finish glass as the tòu.

The KingSize H-Frame offers a 5.25-inch drive bay that's slanted, an internal drive cage that can be configured to offer six 3.5-inch bays, or a combination of four 3.5-inch and two 2.5-inch bays. All bays feature SATA back-planes, letting you slot in and out drives easily. Being an HPTX-supporting case, it features 11 expansion slot bays. The front-panel is particularly interesting, with eight USB 3.0 ports (six on the front, two on the top, all with standard headers), HD audio jacks, and a 3.5-inch hot-plug SATA bay. The motherboard tray gives you enough room for graphics cards up to 42 cm long. Cards such as the Radeon HD 7990 should comfortably fit in, with room to spare. On the cooling front, the KingSize H-Frame offers two 140 mm front intakes, a 140 mm rear exhaust, and two 140 mm bottom intakes that can make room for a 280 x 140 mm radiator.

Phanteks Enthoo Primo Case Pictured

Phanteks graduated from being behind some seriously great coolers and fans, to cases. The company kicked off its enthusiast PC case lineup with the Enthoo Primo. This ATX full-tower easily rivals contemporaries from Corsair, Lian Li, and the likes, in terms of quality, materials, and features. What sets the Enthoo Primo apart from other cases is its large (≥10 cm) clearance between the motherboard tray and the panel behind it. This gives you a large amount of room to route cables, coolant tubes, and even tuck away some parts of your liquid-cooling loop, such as pumps and reservoirs.

The Enthoo Primo from Phanteks features eight expansion slot bays, letting you use dual-slot graphics cards on the bottommost slot on your motherboard, six 3.5-inch drive trays spread across two cages, each tray can hold two 9.5 mm-thick 2.5-inch drives. The case offers five 5.25-inch bays that hide behind a door in the front-panel. Cooling system includes two 120 mm front intakes, a 120 mm rear exhaust, and provision for additional fans on the top (3x 120 mm), side-panel, and bottom. A 6-channel voltage-based fan-controller comes included. Phanteks stated that the price could range between 199 to 249 EUR, when the case hits markets in July.
We also managed to score a video presentation of the Enthoo Primo. Watch it after the break.
