NZXT Adamas Classic Series

You can’t win the hearts of computer enthusiasts, system builders, and hardcore gamers by simply releasing one good product and calling it quits to hardware improvments, so it’s a good thing that companies such as NZXT have built a reputation based on producing one great new product after another. In this review, the brand new completely aluminum Adamas mid-tower ATX case from NZXT’s Classic Series will be put under the microscope and be completely dissected by Benchmark Reviews.

Latin adams, adamant-, from Greek, unconquerable, impenetrable, hard. A legendary stone of impenetrable hardness, formerly sometimes identified with the diamond.

Introducing the Adamas, the luxurious high end chassis from NZXT. crafted from 3mm and 2mm aluminum this chassis can support well over 300lbs. The Adamas features a patented tooless technology for the front and side panels and unique finned drive bays for added cooling. Both the extruded chassis and four stock 12cm fans makes for a superior cooling system.

NZXT Adamas

If it wasn’t enough that NZXT is crafting some of the finest cases available to the market today, they are also reinventing the wheel; with success. The tool-less panel design incorporated in the Adamas is one of the most durable latch systems I have yet to see. You won't find more then a bottle-cap worth of plastic used to build this case; and even then we're talking about small pieces used to secure drive doors and make cushion feet for the case. It really seems as though the marketing department over at NZXT didn't have to stretch the imagination in describing this case.
