A Look Inside
Getting inside the case is very easy just remove the 2 thumbscrews on the side panel. Once inside you will see that NAXT has painted the inside all black, which gives this case some style, perfect for the LAN crowd.
Looking towards the front of the case you can see the huge 190mm intake fan. That fan runs at 1100RPM so it should not be that loud, but will push a lot of air because of its large size. Right in front of the fan there is a hard drive cage that will fit 2 hard drives.
Moving up you have the 3 5.25-inch external bays and 2 more 3.5-inch hard drive bays. All of the drive bays have rubber on each side that will cut down on vibration noise.
Towards the back of the case you will see the offsets for the power supply. This case will fit a normal sized ATX power supply. That is key since this case is made for gaming a graphics cards sure eat up a lot of power! NZXT went with ventilated PCI slot covers, which are also black and the thumbscrews that hold them in place are black as well.
The 120mm fan on the back is just a plain black fan, notice it does not have a grill on it. The huge 190mm exhaust fan at the top of the case also will run at 1100RPM so it will not make that much noise, but push a lot of air.
Also inside you will find all of the mounting hardware nicely placed in labeled bags. I hate when I don’t know what screws are for what, I like that NZXT has labeled all the bags.
