NZXT Adamas Premium Crafted Chassis ReviewSagittaria - January 18, 2007
A closer look inside. The inside looks nice and clean and again, you can see the extreme thickness. Much to my displeasure, I realized that the rest of the optical bay covers are just tabbed in, not as strong as the rest of the case, but will still survive a tap...unlike the top CD-ROM door. Once again, notice the cheap PCI covers. NZXT, I'm still wondering why you didn't include anything better on a beautiful $170 case like this.
Now that you know the case, let's get to business and build a computer!
- CPU: Pentium 4 Socket 478 3.4e
- Motherboard: Asus P4C800-E Socket 478
- RAM: Corsair Value Ram 2x512mb PC3200
- Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 6
- GPU: Power Color Radeon 9600pro
- HDDs: 3xWestern Digital 80gb IDE 8mb, 2 in RAID-0
- PSU: Generic 400watt
- Optical: Generic 56x
Now this is a new one. It seems that NZXT decided to let the 120mm fan hang out over the motherboard. As a result, the heat sink that I have been using for the past two years did not fit for the first time in history! Why NZXT didn't let the fan sit farther back is beyond me, because I cannot see any kind of reason as to why they did this. This will definitely cause problems for enthusiasts who use oversize heat sinks like I do.
