NZXT ROGUE

Crafted Series - SFF Gaming Chassis

Introduction:

NZXT has sent us their Crafted Series ROGUE SFF Gaming Chassis. Since the first thing you see when looking at a computer is the case, NZXT has attempted to craft a case that is both practical and eye catching. If you’re looking for a computer case that slightly defies the norms of what all your friends have, this may be the case for you. With 3mm of aluminum wrapped around the steel frame, this cube case can take anything you throw at it - literally. If you travel with your case to LAN parties, but still want to show off the sleek design, simply clip it into the included carrying case and travel with ease. The ROGUE was designed for gamers and NZXT has gone on the quest to build the ultimate gaming case.

NZXT’s Take:

“Introducing the performance gaming SFF chassis from NZXT, the Rogue, built with an 3mm aluminum frame and fitted with the best cooling possibilities like five 120mm fans, the Rogue offers the best performance and quality for M-ATX gaming systems. Tailored for LAN parties, the Rogue comes standard with a carrying strap, capability for four hard drives and long video expansion cards like the NVIDIA 8800GTX. High performance parts also means a high wattage PSU so the Rogue was also designed to hold high wattage 750W power supplies through the use of an extension bracket. All the components inside can are also protected by the sturdy frame and a locking mechanism to insure maximum security. NZXT has designed the Rogue to offer the best cooling, craftsmanship, expandability in this range of chassis.”

Packaging and Contents:

Unlike some other computer cases, the ROGUE was packaged extremely well. The case itself arrived wrapped in plastic to prevent scuffing and then was placed in high quality Styrofoam, eliminating the chance for this case to even think about arriving in less than perfect condition. If you are worried about the size of your power supply, have no fear THE ROGUE is here. NZXT has included a power supply extender, allowing you to install PSU’s up to NZXT’s massive Precise 1200W Power Supply.
