[THE OFFICIAL] NZXT VULCAN OWNERS CLUB


Pros -
* Justified price / quality ratio
* Small and compact with carrying handle
* Can still hold full size GPUs - perfect for a small LAN party rig
* Two fans included
* Water cooling ready
* Fan controller included
* Switch to toggle lighting elements on/off
* Interior black paint job
* Great cable management possibilites
* Rail system for hard drives


Cons -
* Very restrictive on terms of CPU cooler
* Thin metal makes for a somewhat fragile & easily bendable case
* Thin paint job cannot take even the slightest amount of abuse
* Mesh side scratches paint & is easily bendable out of shape
* Somewhat inadequate packaging


* these aren't my words * But I have to disagree on the first one " Very restrictive on terms of CPU cooler" I got my Xigmatek Dark Knight to fit just fine but it is really close to hitting the side panel

I hadn't seen anyone do a Vulcan owners club so I thought I would start one. It's not official though.

Unofficial NZXT Vulcan Owners Club

The first one is the code for every one to get it from, and I added the link which I forgot the first time.

Don't know if this should be in the case forum or this one. . .

Anyway, I really like this case alot, it really makes me want a mATX motherboard now. . .

That's good to hear.... cable management hasn't been one of my strong points....


Very nice job on yours, by the way.

Haha cable management isn't really a skilll
Just need patience and a case with good cable management really haha oh and the cable ties and sometimes tape


I'm sure you will do fine. This case has plenty of room for a lot of cables to hide behind the back side panel.

And thanks man

Shots of the back are used as reference for people who are interested incases. They get an idea for the management capabilities. For alot of people seeing that can make or break there decisions, oh and the more cables you have back there the better cause that what people respect haha.

Just make sure you show the amount of room you have with the "finger" test.

Haha yeah I know what you mean. It's what I'm always looking at when I'm buying a case but with the "finger" test. It's going to be a bit tricky.. Cause when the side panel is off theres about 1cm off room between the edges of the case and the back of the motherboard tray but if you look at the pics the back side panel is like pushed out. Alot. Like 2.5cm or even more. So yeah..

EDIT - See the back panel in this pic http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/N.../caseside2.jpg You can see what I mean. It's pushed out which I reckon is a awesome idea from NZXT. Really helps with the cable management.

Oh yeah it's got that punched out area, I guess that would really help.

I kinda wish I had that in my Gamma now cause it's a bear to route anything in this case.
