Weight

I had to of course weigh the thing for myself. Here it is with nothing, that's right, nothing in it.  It weighs 20lbs all by itself!

 

It weighed nearly 30lbs when everything was installed. Wow, this is one heavy computer!

I'm afraid that's the end of testing and all the fun :(

Conclusion

This is truly a great case. It is indestructible to a certain degree with 2mm-3mm thick aluminum throughout the entire case! The front and the side panel mechanisms are both truly magnificent, making your life a whole lot easier when repairing or just plain showing off! The craftsmanship is just great and it simply has an excellent look to it, and the included fans are dead silent!

On the negative side, it seems that NZXT decided to do half the job by designing an excellent case and then skimping out on everything else! The CD-ROM cover is just plain cheap, and the single use PCI covers are something you'd see on a case an eighth of this price. That, and screws and drive rails were just non-existent. You will definitely need to borrow some from another case. Shame on you NZXT!
