Aerocool DS Dead Silence Cube Chassis Review

Today in the eTeknix office we have the latest chassis from Aerocool,
the DS Dead Silence microATX gaming chassis. While of course this
chassis could be used for any type of system (within reason of
course), it is certainly aimed at the PC gaming market and more
specifically the small form factor end of the market.

Compact gaming PCs have taken off in a really big way this last
couple of years and companies such as Cooler Master and BitFenix have
done really well with their miniITX solutions, proving a popular
choice for LAN gamers, HTPC users or with those looking to build a
compact gaming system for their bedroom or to go alongside their big
screen TV. There are many new players to the cube chassis market this
year and this is a great thing, it's always good to see companies
trying to compete, out do each other and improve on designs because at
the end of the day it's often the consumer who wins. The big question
is, does the Dead Silence have what it takes to mix it with some of
the biggest names in the industry?

We've reviewed a few gaming chassis from Aerocool in the past and
while their brand name might not carry as much weight as something
like Corsair, at least here in the UK, they've actually produced some
of the best cases we've seen here at eTeknix such as their BX-500
 and Xpredator
 and I'm hoping that the DS offers as many cool features as their
other gaming series chassis. So lets cut right to it and see what
Aerocools DS has to offer.

It is worth pointing out that Aerocool make two main models of this
chassis, one with a side panel window and one without. We have the one
without the side panel window, but Aerocool have also provided us with
a replacement window side panel so that this review effectively covers
both editions, but please not that it doesn't come with both the solid
and windowed side panels at retail.

The front of the DS box features a quick run down of the main
specifications. These include the Micro ATX / Mini ITX motherboard
compatibility, 4 expansion slots and the hard drive configurations.
