The Prominent is a mid-tower case series from Nexus targeted to users looking forward to building a quiet PC. We’ve already reviewed the Prominent 5, and today we are reviewing the Prominent 9. Both cost the same, which leads to the automatic question, “what are the differences between the two?” That is what we are going to answer in this review.

As in the Prominent 5, both side panels of the Prominent 9 are solid, and although it is a steel case, the two edges of the front panel are made in aluminum. This helps the Prominent 9 to have a very sober, professional look.
