Nexustek has mainly been known for their quiet fans, power supplies and other noise-reducing components, but they have also made a couple of cases in the past. The best-known of their cases must be the Breeze. When it entered the markets it was one of the first that was aimed towards silent computing and had loads of noise-blocking design features. The main problem the users had with the Breeze was that, though it was quiet, the silence came with a price and the ventilation was not up to the task.

Now Nexus has come up with a new case in their range of quiet cases, the Caterpillar. It comes equipped with two quiet fans and the panels are covered in sound-absorbing material. How well have they accomplished with the compromise between being quiet and having a good ventilation this time? Read on and find out!

The Caterpillar is a very simple looking case, all the side panels are black and feel surprisingly rough. This kind of paintjob doesn't reveal the dust and fingerprints as easily as glossy one, but at the same time the case may not look as stunning. The top and the left panels are bent from a single sheet and riveted in place, leaving the right panel the only removable one.
