Closer Look: Rogue Interior

In this section we will have a look at the interior of the NZXT Rogue, which would allow anyone to see the expansion capabilities of this SFF gaming case. The Rogue will hold up to 4 hard drives through the provided cage space. Also, the Rouge has more than enough room to fit almost anything that you could in a regular case other than a regular ATX motherboard.

Moving on to the interior of the NZXT Rogue, you can see the CD-ROM, HDS installation bays from the image above.

The rear exhaust fan and the side exhaust fan on the side panel are viewed in the screenshot. The side exhaust fan is pre-mounted right next to the CPU to exhaust the hot air out of the NZXT Rogue.

NZXT Rouge's mounting holes are preinstalled so you don't have a trouble yourself with those. I am sure you will notice the unused space under the installation bays. Enough to comfortably insert a regular ATX motherboard under there, but it only fits a m-ATX board afterall.

The Rogue also comes with one intake fan and has room for another one if needed. Its nice to see the dust filters pre-installed on the side intake panel.

The tray comes out fairly easily after unscrewing four thumb screws. This is really a plus but we will dig deeper in to this particular area as you read on to point out the Pros and Cons of this particular case feature.

Pictured above is a clear shot of the CD-ROM and Floppy Drive bay. You can install either a floppy or memory card reader, but I personally prefer having the option to install both. The unused space could have been utilized if one wanted to further expand their system's installation capability.

# Great chassi!Hagbard Hednig 2012-12-08 12:18
I've had this chassi for several years now and it's the neatest and the coolest chassi I've ever had. Even 25 yo friends with no computer intrest stop and stare.

First question I got was the graphics card. Yes, it will fit any giant graphics card with no problem. Even multiple graphics cards.

I've fitted it with a "Icy Dock MB994SP-4SB" in one of the 5,25" holders (DVD size).

In that there are 4 SSD drives in RAID 5. Main storage is 4*2 TB in RAID 5. The hard drives are mounted next to the intake fans in two stacks of 2, the trick is to move the inner drive one step out to give better cooling.

I changed all the fans to quiet "Gentle Typhoon".

It's compact, looks awesome and faster than fast.

You just have to read the manual and put each component in place in the right order, bacause the compact format gives you a tight fit.

The greatest upside is that you have 5 120 mm fans cooling a computer with half the air volume of your average midtower. It runs like a submarine, cool and quiet.

I love it to bits, if you can find one, BUY IT!
