Ah, not bad... NZXT really upping their game.
I would have done either of two things, added a fan controller or at least one ODD bay though, from what I see no way to control fans.

Now I look forward to a mAtx version biggrin.gif

Side note: wonder how these new fans perform?

Funny that's what I think about the 900D

Caselabs all the way.

Props to NZXT for a remarkable improvement by using painted steel panels, steel HDD cage, and a PSU shroud ala Phanteks. thumb.gif

I do have concerns about the air flow through the front grille, the H630 did okay with that so we'll see.

The loss of 5.25" bays may be polarizing but it will probably be better as far as air cooling and water cooling radiators.

The top mounted IO is a very welcome change as well.

H630 and H230 have painted steel panels

Amusing, because the 900D has had quality control problems ranging from wrong load tolerances causing the bottom panel to either not close, or scrape the chassis itself. And ranging from the front 5&1/2" bays + front panel 3mm brushed aluminum glued on............out of all things.........plastic. Its has had many quality control problems, and its pretty much a hunk of metal with plastic + fake aluminum panels (which are just aluminum glued on plastic).

 

Anyhow, this seems to be a mid-tower sized case, and positioned to directly compete with the Fractal Design Define R4, which I think if this is priced right, can really give that case a run for its money, if not more. That is one sexy case.

 

 

Edit: Price was leaked to be $119 off the NZXT Armory website. Puts it in direct competition with the Define R4. This is looking to be one heck of a solid case.

I hope there's a solid black option, and sufficient airflow to make use of a front mounted 360mm rad smile.gif


On another note, is it just me or has there been a lack of new mid tower cases lately?

The USB ports on the side was more convenient rather than the top, but otherwise it looks very sleek! thumb.gif'

Red + black reminds me of the A-Team! biggrin.gif
