NZXT Adamas Premium Crafted Chassis Review


The back of the case is nothing special as it is not brushed...no surprise there. The case comes with a short instruction manual, drive bay rails, screw list, and well, screws, all in a small white box. Hmm, it seems like NZXT skimped out on the accessories. There cannot possibly be enough screws for anything, let alone the two sets of drive rails. Plus, the PCI covers are the cheap one-time-use kind. NZXT, I am very disappointed with such small annoyances in such a high-end case. Come on, how hard would it have been to include some extra screws?

The second floppy bay houses stealthed front ports which include two USB, one firewire, mic, and headphone jacks, I found this by accident after tapping it. Very nicely done! However, you now only have room now for one 3 1/2" drive. I would've preferred to have it in its own spot.

The top and bottom of the case have several fins, once again, in a small circular pattern. A very cool idea and also adds to the already awesome strength of this case, though I do not think they affect the cooling capacity of this case. In my opinion, they serve more for looks than anything else. The bottom of the case has four dome shaped feet with thick rubber feet. Notice the thick metal used on both the front and bottom panels? Wow! Now what does that handle do?

Why, it pops out the front panel of course! Now THAT is cool. This has got to be the first time I've seen this! No more messing with tabs and screws on the inside!

After calming down from the awesome front panel design, I found one 120mm fan with the usual NZXT fan filter. As you probably noticed by now, I seem to be missing half of my drop down CD-ROM cover...
