Exterior


The left side panel features a huge, super clear perspex window that gives us a stunning view of the chassis interior, and above the top edge of the panel you’ll notice plenty of ventilation on the top panel to provide airflow to any top mounted cooling. The side panel is held in place with a pair of quick release thumb screws for easy access.

The right side panel is just a neat and tidy plain panel, which is also held in place by a pair of quick release thumb screws. You’ll also notice there is no extra ventilation on this side of the top panel, however there is ventilation on the right side of the front panel to allow airflow to any front mounted cooling.

The front panel is super clean and bold looking, with a solid white panel, no door panel to open, no vents, no logos, just a minimalist angled cut-away in the top left corner to add some flair to it. Super sleek would be an understatement.

The top panel is also a solid panel much like the front panel, the only difference being that the front edge has the main I/O ports. On the left you’ll find the master power and reset buttons, while the right features HD audio connections, 2 x USB 3.0 ports and 2 x USB 2.0 ports.

There’s plenty of features around the back, starting with some ventilation on the back of the top panel, bellow which you’ll find a small switch in the top left corner for the motherboard I/O panel LED light, a feature I’ve always loved on NZXT cases as it makes finding tricky USB ports so much easier. Then we have a fan mount with support for 120mm / 140mm fans or radiators, the screw mounts are cut long to allow you to adjust the mounting height. Moving further down you’ll find 7 ventilated expansion slots, each fitted with reusable metal covers, and there’s even some extra ventilation and cable/water routing cut-outs to the right.

The PSU is installed using a removable rear bracket which is removed with four thumb screws, allowing you to slot the PSU inside the internal PSU shroud.

The underside of the chassis has four durable feet that provide plenty of clearance for the PSU air intake, which comes fitted with a slide out washable dust filter.

    I really like this chassis but the lack of a couple of 5.25″ slots could be a deal breaker for many, myself included.

  2. Harry Kewell says:

    How is this a review? How does it compare in terms of temps? Noise levels etc?….Great overview by all means but as for review? lol

  3. marty1480 says:

    Really nice looking chassis with a clean look. Love the sleek lines. But taking the 5.25″ drive out was silly. There are still many times when one needs to load something from optical media. Adding an external device will just destroy the clean look. Shame really.

    • Allan says:

      True, there are times when you need a DVD. But you could just take the side panel off, pop in the SATA cable and drive, use the media then remove it again. I doubt the average user will need to install something from optical media more than once every few months.

      • marty1480 says:

        True that could be done. But it seems to be a lot of trouble for what is essentially not a cheap case, while comparable cases have one ready to go.

    • Osama11 says:

      Removing the optical bays allowed them to achieve that clean design without a door…

      You can also get an external dvd burner for $20. Who cares if it doesn’t have one. I haven’t used one in years

  4. Baddog says:

    What about people that want to use custom water cooling, and would rather use a 5.25″ Bay Res, instead of a 150 or 240 tube Res, they no longer have that option

  5. Fr33Th1nk3r says:

    I don’t want to use water cooling. Will this case be good for air cooling? I really really like red/black to go with my theme and I want a window and good airflow.
