Although we do have the option for a window panel on the Deep Silence case, these window panels are sold separately. The CoolForce cases are available in tempered glass editions (preinstalled).
What is bitumen foam?
All Nanoxia cases are well known for their incredibly efficient soundproofing ability. While many case manufacturers claim to be "silent" or "deadly silent", none are as silent as our Nanoxia Deep Silence. To reach that level of silence, a lot of things come into play such as precisely fit panels to avoid vibrations and automobile-grade sound dampening materials. Our engineers even looked at the way front doors open & close and changed the angles to minimize sound leakage.
The bitumen foam we use is a special combination of sound dampening linings that are especially efficient at absorbing airborne noises.
Are there any accessories for Deep Silence cases?
You bet we do! We offer a full line of silent case fans and sleeved cables of varying RPM, voltage, size, and length.
Can I fit SSI EEB or SSI CEB motherboards into any of your cases?
SSI EEB will fit in an EATX case or bigger. Its dimensions are exactly 12 x 13 inches. However, not all screw holes will line up (usually 3 screw holes will not line up, depending on the exact SSI EEB motherboard you have). The corners line up and some intermediate ones do, and the motherboard should be held tight enough for most usage. But you may notice some motherboard bending due to the missing screws in other areas. Because of the large motherboard size and components, we recommend our Deep Silence 5 (E-ATX) and Deep Silence 6 (HTPX). Other things to keep in mind with SSI EEB motherboards is that you will most likely be using 2 x 8pin (EPS12V) server power connectors, which most consumer grade power supplies do not provide.
SSI CEB will fit in an ATX case or bigger. Its dimensions are exactly 12 x 10.5 inches. All screw holes and IO connectors are the same as ATX motherboard and fit in Deep Silence 1 (ATX) or larger.
Can I fit E-ATX motherboard into Deep Silence 1 revision B?
No. Deep Silence 1 cases, including Deep Silence 1 revision B, support a maximum motherboard length of 305mm on the X-axis. E-ATX motherboards have a length of 330mm.
Deep Silence 5, and Deep Silence 6 do fit E-ATX motherboards.
Which case is best for DAW (digital audio workstation)?
While all Deep Silence cases are lined with a special combination of bitumen fabric and foam compound, and make for excellent DAW (audio workstation), each Deep Silence case offers unique features and some may be better suited for audio workstation than others.

You can use a crimping tool if you have one, if not squeezing them tightly with a pair of pliers should do the job.
Can I use the stock fans on a push-pull radiator?
Many liquid coolers include fans for only one side (push or pull) of the radiator.
You may be tempted to use the stock case fan to create push-pull setup.
While you can definitely use the stock fans in a push-pull radiator, the Deep Silence fans were designed to match the case's fan controller. This means the stock case fans may not rotate in sync with the fans from other brands, leading to additional air turbulence (airborne noises).
Can I use a 3-pin power connector with a 4-pin fan header?
4-pin fans are designed with Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) used by motherboards.
The Nanoxia Deep Silence cases come with fan controllers with 3-pin power connectors and does not need PWM.
Simply plug 4-pin fan to the 3-pin power connector with the PWM-pin unfilled. There is no adapter needed.

Does the CoolForce LED Fittings work on 12mm ID (inner diameter) tubes?
We do not recommend connecting to a slightly smaller 12 mm inner diameter tubes as this prevents proper sealing of the circuit. The Nanoxia CoolForce LED fittings are ideally suited to connect our CoolForce 16/13 PETG tubes (or any other acrylic tubes with identical dimension) and components with a G 1/4 inner threads.
How can I activate UV fluids?
To ensure you have enough UV spectrum to activate UV fluids, you may want to consider installing our Rigid LED Bar available in UV light option:
Why does my Nanoxia UV bar look blue-ish?
Our UV bars are on the blue spectrum of UV and gives off a very soft hint of purple not noticeable in daylight.
While our UV bars may look blue-ish in color, most of the light it emits is in the ultraviolet (UV) range of the spectrum, which is invisible to the human eye.
Why is my Nanoxia LED bar not working when plugged to a motherboard?
Our LED bars are quite powerful and requires more power than most motherboards can provide. A single 20 cm bar consumes 4.4 Watts, while a 30 cm bar requires 6.4 Watts!
Since most motherboard fan headers are not capable of delivering such power, as a result the LED bars will flicker (or simply not work at all).
To achieve maximum brightness, please connect the LED bars directly to a power supply using the included 3-pin molex connector.
