Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Nexus is a Dutch manufacturer with cases that focus on quiet computing. Its latest release is the Prominent R, a mid-tower case with eight expansion slots and a 3.5”/2.5” docking station.

The Prominent R has a very sober look, and both panels are solid.

The front panel of the Nexus Prominent R has four external 5.25” bays, with the bottom one coming with an adapter for you to install an external 3.5” device. They use meshed covers with air filters.

The Prominent R comes with a 120 mm fan on its front panel, cooling the bottom hard drive cage. A second fan can be installed in case you want to cool down the top hard drive cage and increase air flow inside the computer. This fan uses a three-pin power connector; you can install it on your motherboard and monitor its speed. The case comes with a “power hub” where all fans can be powered through a single standard power connector coming from the power supply. We will talk about this device later. Unfortunately, the manufacturer doesn’t say what the technical specifications are of this fan.
