NZXT Vulcan Overview
The Vulcan is in a class of its own. Starting with the front of the computer case you see 4x 5.25” external bays and 2x 3.5” external bays. This case has its very own 2 fan speed controllers above the top 5.25” bay and they’re in an easy-to-reach spot. These speed controllers are for the front fan and the top fan. On the bottom there is a front mesh grill for the internal 120mm fan.
On the top of the case there is the standard front mic and front headphone plug-ins with power switch and reset switch along with 2 USB and eSATA ports. Also on the top there are the vents for the dual 120mm Fans that are mounted from the inside of the case.
Moving along to the side of the case you can see that there is a big honeycomb mesh side panel. You can also see where the 200mm fan is to be mounted internally. The holes have rubber grommets so it that it doesn’t vibrate or make any noise when the fan is mounted.
Moving to the back of the Vulcan, there are the 2 rubber grommets used for water cooling mounted at the top with the fan LED on and off button. Beneath those features is a mount for either 80mm or 92mm fan. On the left side of the fan mount is the standard input/output panel and the cut-outs for the add-on cards like graphics or soundcards. On the bottom of the case there is mount for the power supply.
Onto the other side of the case you can see there is the extruded side where it gives you extra internal space to hide your wires.
Along the bottom of the case you will see a cut-out with a fan filter and four, large rubber feet. These feet lift the Vulcan off of the surface in which it sits, and this allows the power supply to receive cool airflow through the cut-out while preventing dust from collecting inside. The side panels are held together by thumbscrews, a very useful feature if you have to open the case quickly.
