Rogue Detailed Exterior Features
The NZXT Rogue has very unique look. It has a very appealing exterior design, which I personally like. The front panel has a locking mechanism, so nobody can turn on the system other than you. I certainly like the feature but personally I have never used the key, and I don't know if others are that comfortable locking their system and then potentially misplace that key. It is a nice feature to have but most certainly not the most demanded feature by consumers. I can understand a locking mechanism for the side panels on cases but not the front panel.
Here in the image above are the front panel I/O ports. The NZXT Rogue SFF gaming case only comes with 2 USB ports in the front it would have been nice to see at-least four since most of the newer chipsets support at-least 8-12 USB ports. The front panel also includes the front audio jacks and an e-SATA port which internally connects to your motherboards SATA port.
Removing the top panel is the easiest task of all, as all you have to do is remove one thumb screw shown above and pull it towards you and lift it up to remove it.
Here is the top panel separated. The see-through window on top really is neat. It gives you a top view of the inside and the rear fan.
I really liked the power and reset button on the NZXT Rogue, as they have a nice finish and really stand out on black.
