To keep my epilogue short, I believe that this case is very nice looking and innovative and should satisfy most gamers and modders. Of course it is not perfect, as every item it has its own flaws. There are many strong but also quite some weak points for this case, although NZXT gave a lot of attention on details. Summing up:


  • Whole aluminum construction, solid and innovative design. Few plastic and no steel parts.
  • Great mirror paint finish on most parts.
  • Tool-less design. You won’t need more than a single screwdriver for this case and that just for mounting the motherboard and power supply unit.
  • External power button and hidden front ports increase functionality and ease of use.
  • Color changing ‘eye’ LED light. Innovative HDD LED.
  • 3 x 120mm blue LED fans are included. Excellent cooling capabilities.
  • Excellent PCI slot retention mechanism.
  • A lot of attention on details like the aluminum window frame which hides the bolts and the metal hinges of the door. Not a single sharp edge.
  • Magnetic type door, smooth to work with and unlikely to be damaged.
  • The included LCD control unit adds a lot to the functionality and character of the case.


  • The included fans are ok, but not what we consider silent.
  • The door is designed to close tight to the chassis; anything that protrudes even a few mm from the bays will prevent it from closing properly, which means that rheobus devices and switches should be avoided.
  • The PCI slot covers are not re-usable
  • The quality of the plastic cover of the LCD screen at the top of the case feels much inferior to that of the rest of the case.
