When I think of the word 'tank', I think of large, heavy land vehicles with all the firepower needed to cause more damage than most can think of. You might be asking yourself, 'how does this relate to hardware and technology'? Well, it's simple. Aside from firepower and damage, I also think of the word "housing". And this reminds me of a case. Geeky? Maybe, but I'm a tech junkie and it fits! When it comes to cases and tanks I see a lot in common (I need to get out more), except the weaponry of course. A tank has to be sturdy, strong and well built - kind of like a case, right? Well that's what I look for when searching for a new case. I like strong, reliable material, plenty of ventilation and built to last.
One case that seems to fit the criteria is the NZXT Panzerbox. Its design is small but it sure packs a punch with pure aluminum build, removable motherboard tray, three massive fans for cooling and is liquid cooling ready. So, without further ado, let's take a closer look at the Panzerbox!
The NZXT Panzerbox comes shipped in a fairly small box. The front of the box features two angles of the case, and a few features. The back of the box isn't too different, and along with a glamor shot of the case is a full list of features. Both sides of the box are exactly the same showing the specifications of the Panzerbox case.
Once you open up the box, you will see that the Panzerbox has two styrofoam covers on each side of the case to prevent any harm during shipping. The case is also wrapped in a plastic bag to protect it from any unwanted scratches.
When I opened up the case I found a small white box containing all sorts of goodies. Inside this box were bags of assorted screws, stand-offs, and two brackets that are used to replace the top 190mm fan for a radiator.
