I recently found myself in a somewhat new predicament in terms of computer enclosures. For the first time ever, I found that the traditional midtower case was now too small to hold all of my hardware "comfortably". A recent hard drive upgrade is to blame for this (two Seagate 400 GB drives in RAID 0). These new drives, combined with the two other storage drives I have, made for a tight fit in my previous midtower. In what could be considered almost perfect timing (but purely coincidental), NZXT's latest full tower chassis just happened to be the next thing in my list of items needing a review. The NZXT Zero boasts some pretty impressive features, such as SEVEN 120mm fans, and has plenty of room to accommodate hard drives, but will this full tower be the knight in shining armor that my latest hardware upgrade so desperately needs?
The Zero arrived in NZXT's standard colorful shipping package, giving us a clear view of what awaits inside. The case was well protected inside the box and suffered no damages during shipping.
Immediately we see that the Zero sports a high-gloss paint job, and four huge cooling fans on the left side panel. Before we dig deeper, let's check out the specs and features, borrowed from NZXT's website.
