Building With The NXDS2B
Anyone offended by the Deep Silence 2’s open rear-panel grommets will find a set of solid plugs in its installation kit, along with a face plate for its factory-installed 5.25”-to-3.5” external bay adapter and divisible eight-pin CPU power (ATX12V/EPS12V) extender.
Two sets of holes allow 2.5” drives to face towards either side of the tray. I selected the connectors to point right, to help hide cables.
We’re very happy with the Deep Silence 2’s cable access design, though all that space appears wasted on a standard ATX motherboard.
The only two delays in this build were sorting through a myriad of screws that are all packed within a single bag, and lining up all the latching tabs on its 22-inch side panels. I succeeded on that last hold-up after several attempts, and beauty was the reward for my patience.
