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.
