Introduction

The mid-tower, ATX format computer case is probably the most common type of PC enclosure in the world. Not only is the design used by the bulk of OEM computer manufacturers, it's also a popular choice for mainstream home builders and many gamers as well. Given the sheer number of cases we review, it's little wonder that the majority are in fact, mid-tower enclosures. Since the mid-tower market is primarily dominated by low-cost, cookie-cutter styled case designs, as you might imagine the life of a PC case reviewer here at OCIA.net can at times become a bit humdrum.


NZXT is often a regular product supplier here at OCIA.net, for example roughly one out of every five cases we review comes from them. So while you could say we are pretty familiar with their designs, there are times when they can surprise even the reviewers here. Just a few months ago, Rutledge checked out the NZXT Beta chassis, which earned our Seal of Approval for its features, classic good looks and low price. Today I have the opportunity to review another of their most recent designs, the Panzerbox.


Like the Beta, the Panzerbox comes from NZXT's Classic Series, those chassis typically with a more conservative appearance than their Crafted product line. Also along the same lines as the Beta, the Panzerbox is advertised as a mid-tower case and comes painted black inside and out. But there is where the similarities end. The Panzerbox is constructed of aluminum rather than steel, and features a unique shortened size that nearly lends itself to being classified as a micro-tower design.

Join me as I take a closer look at the NZXT Panzerbox.
