Introduction

NZXT was founded on the premise of helping gamers find quality cases that they can depend on and bring out individual style.  NZXT has made a name for itself by putting out case after case that has met or exceeded these quality expectations of the gamer community.  Having never had the opportunity to work with NZXT Products in the past, I didn't know what to expect going into this review.  Thanks to NZXT, today I get my first chance to see just what they have to offer first hand.  So let's get right into it.

First Impressions

The NZXT Zero struck me as soon as I got it.  The black gloss finish and mesh covers on the side look very sleek.  The front of the NZXT Zero sports a silver 'X' shape to contrast the same glossy black finish.  This helps to really draw the eye with simple yet elegant lines.

  

Adding to that, those four huge fans on the side really beg to be noticed.  With all of these fans included, the NZXT Zero was still surprisingly light.  Seven kilograms to be exact.  Because I've never worked with NZXT Cases before, I had no expectations going into this review.  However, here's where they're starting to develop.  This feels like it's going to be quite a case.
