Introduction

Several years ago I had the opportunity to review my very first computer enclosure, a Lian Li PC-60 midtower chassis. Up until that point, I had worked with several midtower cases but none had impressed me as much as the PC-60. All-aluminum cases were relatively new (and expensive) at that time, and it was a breath of fresh air to work with something new and innovative. Since that time, I have worked on countless cases here at OCIA.net and while I have seen my fair share of both good and bad enclosures, nothing has really given me that "wow" factor as did the original PC-60.

Enter the NZXT Adamas Premium Aluminum Chassis: NZXT's first attempt at an all-aluminum case. NZXT was established in 2004 with their sights set on the gaming enthusiast market. Their first offering, the Guardian midtower case, had a revolutionary look (many said it resembled a Transformer) and was an instant hit. NZXT has expanded on their Crafted Series to include four other cases and more recently introduced the Classic Series which consists of the Trinity, Lexa and the newest addition, the Adamas.



The Adamas arrived in your standard shipping carton with images of the case and features on both sides. The box was a little banged up thanks to Mr. FedEx but the contents inside were in pristine condition.



And here we have a look at the Adamas itself. Before we go any further, let's take a quick look at the features list from NZXT.com
