If you are going into the mATX realm and want a gaming machine, this is the perfect case for that. While it is a bit larger than other SFF cases, that extra room allows for great cooling and space for large video cards and a full ATX power supply. NZXT definitely got it right with this case, it has to be the best gaming SFF case that I have seen and one of the best looking as well!
NZXT makes installation of your hardware easy with the removable motherboard tray. I’ve always been a fan of the removable motherboard trays and it is great to see one on the Rogue. One of the best features of the case besides the removable motherboard tray is the 3 panel design. So you have 2 side panels and 1 top panel. Not one of those hard to install single panels that usually ends up getting bent because they do not fit correctly.
The Rogue does have some “bling” with the top window and accent lights on the front, but it still keeps that minimalistic look, which I really like. I also like the amount of cooling this case has. You have room for 5 120mm fans! In a SFF case! NZXT knows many people will be using this for a gaming system, so they know cooling is important.
With a selling price of $99, it is a little higher than some other SFF cases, but all of those cases lack all of the features of the Rogue. ThinkComputers give the NZXT Rogue SFF Gaming Chassis a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
