NZXT Zero Crafted Chassis ReviewSagittaria - December 4, 2006
IntroductionNeither flashy nor plain, the Zero weighs in with a whopping 8 fans, seven of which are 120mm! Along with its “ultimate cooling solution” it is dead quiet and is quite an eye catcher without the fancy lights and gizmos that many people hate. NZXT is a new company, established back in 2004, but since then, it has pumped out some very beautiful cases and power supplies designed for the gamer and enthusiast. The company has been rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the best chassis manufacturers out there.
I was surprised upon receiving this case. I was very intrigued by the huge number of fans on the package and proceeded on to the ritualistic destroying of the box. Inside I found drive rails (just about everything is tool less): 5 sets of CD drive rails, 2 sets of floppy rails, and 5 sets of hard drive rails. Also, there were a small amount of screws and a detailed instruction manual.Not shown)
The bottom has four cylindrical feet with a bronze colored covering, a classic. Also on the bottom is a filtered 80mm fan hole without a fan, probably used to equalize pressure inside the case. The top of the case has a 80mm blowhole to expel air, a great fan setup. On the right side of the case are the front panel connectors with two USB, FireWire, microphone, and headphone jacks. The magnetic door opens to the right; this might be a turn off for some people as their computers may stand on the left rather than the right.
