Nexus Prominent 9 Premium Silent Case
The Nexus Prominent 9 case is your best choice premium chassis for a silent computer. With its toolless installation features it is a breeze to install your components or change your set-up. And the sleek professional look and materials make the case fit in anywhere. A black mesh front and aluminium edges give the Prominent 9 a distinguished look and great expansion possibilities.
We fitted our excellent silent case fans. A 14cm is fitted on the ceiling and a 12cm is fitted as air intake in the front. Some isolating padding where the PSU is placed prevents resonance. And there are ventilation holes (and room for a fan) in the bottom of the case for air-intake and the thick rubber feet keep these elevated from the floor to make a smooth airflow possible and eliminate resonance. Check out all the great features....
The Nexus Prominent cases are fitted with some noise absorption material we really love. It is a premium dense foam/rubber-like material with great characteristics. We fitted a flat layer on the panel behind the motherboard and a nice wave foam layer on the other panel. These materials surely hush your system.
PCI-cards and optical drives are installed toolless with a convenient fixing system.
Removable HDD-trays with vibration absorbers
The hard disks are fitted in removable trays to make installation easy and secure. The hard disk are fixed inside the tray with screws with rubber grommets to absorb noise and vibration.
Some cable guides have been installed to nicely guide your cables for a cleaner look in your system.
We have fixed some nice padding on the areas where normally the PSU would hit the chassis. We have attached some patches on the bottom of the case and a little frame around the PSU opening at the back of the case. These 'bumpers' are made form soft foam/rubber-like materials and absorb and vibration caused by the PSU and prevents this resonance from being transmitted to the chassis.
The Prominent case is fitted with rubber feet.
