When it comes to interior space, it’s spacious indeed.
Here’s another angle of the interior. You’ll notice that the motherboard tray doesn’t have a huge cutout which I believe this is to maintain the structural integrity of the casing. This comes at cost of not being able to mount large heatsinks of which the space could accommodate quite easily.
With everything in place, there’s ample space at the bottom for one to hide cables, in case you’re using a non-modular PSU like I did. The 2.5″ drive placement is quite neat too as it’s hidden from view and with both SATA and power cables connected yet not hurting the view. The downside of the setup is that for 2.5″ drives to be in place, you’ll have to attach the provided mounting screws on your drive before being able to be firmly secured.
From the other side, the key showcase would be the graphic card, hence my modified Kraken G10 unit.
Here’s the view from a lower angle, showing how the cables are hidden underneath the motherboard. It’s a mess but trust me, it’s hidden away!
With the case cover closed, it’s just a tiny window to view the setup.

They come in colors Blue, Pink, Green, Black, White, Pure White (metal area being white), Red, Orange and Gold (more like champagne) and each color has a Window and non-Windowed variant.
What does the final output look like? It’s at the end of the article.
The Aerocool Dead Silence DS Cube (Windowed) retails at RM 329 and in my opinion, it’s a casing worth shelling out money for if you’re looking for something small. It has the sleek modern contemporary design as the DS 200 that I reviewed last week.
The best part about this casing is the side window which I think is very well placed and hides all the ugly bits. 😀 If looks could kill, I’d be dead.
Here’s what it looks like with everything in place.
