NZXT Rogue: Exterior

It appears that the NZXT Rogue SFF case is an average size SFF gaming case, something that I am used to seeing at my local Fry's Electronics store. Once I had taken it out of the box, I was actually amazed how spacious it looked. After having the first look at the exterior I couln't help but imagine what this case had to offer in terms of functionality.


The retail box was much bigger than I expected for a SFF case, because the case was packaged very well with protection on top and bottom. All the accessories were stored inside the case like most other cases that I have purchased over the last few years.


As shown in the image above, the NZXT Rogue could be carried with the included strap. It simply wraps around the NZXT Rogue, and then it is carried on your shoulder if attending a Lan-Party.


After opening the front door you are able to access the CD-ROM and Floppy Bay, as well as the Power and Reset Button. The front USBs are accessible without opening the front door, which is convenient.


Here you can see what it looks like with the front closed. The case really has a nice black finish to it as you can see, but the downside is that the NZXT Rogue is a fingerprint hog. I however could not hold that against the NZXT Rogue, because anything with a nice black finish ends up this way. If you have a PS3 you probably already know what I am trying to imply.


This is the view of the side panel where you can attach two 120mm fans of your choice on each side. I really didn't like the fact that you have to unscrew the side panel everytime you remove it.


I really loved that everything was labeled. It is to be noted that not all the NZXT products come with accessories pre-labeled. It was really nice during the installation process to know which screws to use where, since this is not a normal ATX case.



# 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!
