The Nexus Prominent 5 silent case features toolless installation making it a breeze to install your components or change your set-up. The sleek professional look and materials make the case fit in anywhere. A black mesh front, aluminium edges, and black interior give the Prominent 5 a distinguished look.
Nexus outfitted the Prominent 5 with their 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.
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.
Practically all components can be mounted inside the case without tools. PCI-lots and Optical drives are fixed with toolless solutions.
And especially the HDD trays are very convenient. You just need to squeeze the tray to be able to pull out the hard disk or place it back. Plus the HDD's mounting is fitted with rubber to reduce resonance and vibration. However we did make sure that the HDD's have grounding with the case.
Nexus has 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.
