AeroCool Rolls Out DS200 Black Window Edition Case

AeroCool rolled out the latest addition to its DeadSilence (DS) family of quiet PC cases, the DS200 Black Window Edition. A variant of the DS200, it features a tinted acrylic window on its side-panel, measuring 284 mm x 217 mm. The rest of its feature-set is identical to the original. Measuring 210 mm x 485 mm x 527 mm (WxDxH), this ATX mid-tower case is made of a SECC steel frame, and ABS panels, with synthetic leatherette coating. One of its main features is an integrated multi-channel fan-controller, with temperature readouts. Other front panel connectivity includes two each of USB 3.0 and USB 2.0/1.1 ports and HDA jacks.

The DS200 offers two 5.25-inch drive bays, and seven internal bays (2x 2.5-inch and 5x 3.5-inch), split between two detachable drive cages. The case offers room for graphics cards as long as 290 mm, but with one of the drive cages removed, that clearance is increased to 410 mm. CPU coolers as tall as 170 mm can be installed. Ventilation includes two 140 mm front intakes (one 140 mm fan included), one 120 mm rear exhaust (fan included), and a top exhaust vent that either holds one 200 mm spinner, or two 140/120 mm ones.

Looks alright for a "plastic fantastic" case, styled to imitate Phanteks Enthoo series, which is better than imitating the usual "space wars" theme favored by too many.
As for "Dead Silence", DS should stand for "dead stuff", because that's what you'll have after trying to run silent for a while!
Like the two large data drives of mine that recently overheated and died because of no air flow over one of my drive cages. After that, I moved the cage and screwed a 120mm fan on the side; I can't afford to replace any more large hard drives.
If you want silence, get a tablet. To me, the quiet hum of multiple fans moving air is comforting, a gentle reminder of the power within, and assurance that none of my expensive parts are cooking themselves in "silent desperation".
Closing off a case and using weak fans is okay for an office machine, not okay for a powerful gaming rig or pro work station.
