Things have been quiet around the Nanoxia brand for a while, but with their latest chassis, the Deep Silence 8 Pro, they are back, looking to offer a modern case with an emphasis on silence and functionality while sticking to an attractive price point.

It is odd to see a silence-focused case that doesn't make any effort to physically isolate the hard drives. Are there no silicone mounts or cushions to help dampen the drive vibrations?

Also: another case designed by a team that doesn't own cats. I always have to place something sturdy over top-mounted power buttons or else a misplaced paw is likely to power down my PC.

The case will most likely come with hard drive screws that have anti vibration grommets on them

Yay for: 5.25 bay, HDD light (why are these going away!? Can't even fall back on sound with SSDs!), lots of drive space, proper slot covers, a flush rear panel, no windows or RGB nonsense

Boo for: buttons/lights/ports are all on top, 20mm too wide (HDD orientation's fault, I suppose), a twenty more than I feel like spending for something I don't really need. :p

Good to see something occasionally pop up that's aimed at folks like me!

I guess when they were ripping off Fractal Design they decided to cheap out on a few things...

How come since the Meshify 2 review, its results aren't included in the testing tables?

Where are the temperature numbers coming from for the Fractal Define 7? I'm finding it pretty hard to believe that this can hang with that case, and even apparently have better cooling in a few measurements.
