We check out what NZXT have to offer at CES
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
NZXT have been top of their game for some time now, with the highly successful Phatom range being a firm favourite with gaming and overclocking enthursiasts for years now, not for getting the sublime Switch range that has strived for perfection and met the demands of todays high end components and made no sacrifice on style. Not only have their chassis been some of the best on the market for years now, but their Kraken water coolers and stunning the crowds, as too are their solid PSU offerings and even their case modding tools, myself included as I can’t think of an NZXT product I have reviewed that didn’t earn an eTeknix Award.
So with NZXT already having a robust lineup of products, we’re curious as to what else they could come up with which is why we were invited to drop by and check out their display here at CES, so lets move on and see just what they had to offer.
First up we hav a sneaky giggle of watching Chris recording a video interview about their latest PSU designs, but due to some technical dificulties with our microphone and endless giggling from the rest of us, this video is taking a little longer to edit than we had hoped, keep an eye on our YouTube channel for it in the near future.
Unless you’ve had your head burried in the ground last week you’ll know all about the fantastic Phantom 630 gaming chassis, to culmination of all the finest features of the Phantom and the Switch ranges, with a few new minor touches thrown in for good measure.
Featuring rear SSD mounts and crazy amounts of cable management solutions this should look a real treat with a complete system.
Featuring a front panel similar to the last Phantom the 630 also includes an SDXC card reader but unfortunately no pre-installed Hue lighting.
The Spec card for this new king of chassis.
Ample cooling on the rear panel, as well as the NZXT led light system on the PCI-E slots.
The most impressive thing on offer though were these two fully equiped Phantom 630 chassis.
The first is fitted out with tripple GTX 680 GPUS and tripple Kraken water cooling blocks, a seriously cool looking, high performance rig.
Or if your feeling brave you could opt for this stripped out quad SLI 670 rig which also features a tripple radiator setup, rear mounted SSD’s and some sublime cable management. This goes a long way to show casing the capabilities of this chassis.
NZXT are well known for their white PSU designs and this range of fully modular 850W, 1000W and 1200W PSU’s are going to go down a storm with NZXT lovers. Not only should they perform superbly but the attention to detail in their design is incredible, featuring a full metal embosed side strip with the NZXT logo that will really stand out in any well designed rig.
For those that like to get in even closer you’ll notice that NZXT has used white PCB’s throughout, including on the smaller attached PSB’s to keep a uniform and stylish look throughout.
That’s all from NZXT at the moment but it’s not the last you’ll hear from us, I have the Phantom 630 sat right next to me in the office and you can be sure I’ll have a review in the next few days, so stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Forums or mainsite for updates.
Don’t forget we still have more great coverage from CES 2013 coming your way.
