Rogue Detailed Interior Features

In this particular section we will take a detailed look at the interior features of the NZXT Rogue Crafted Series SFF gaming case. The Rogue comes with a removable motherboard tray, and it supports up to five 120mm fans to cool the internal components. The Rogue also supports the latest (and longest) graphics cards, which should give it a significant edge over the competition.


The motherboard tray removal, as stated before, was a fairly easy task by removing the four thumb screws. It has a really nice finish to it and the mounting holes were pre-installed.


The installation of the CD drive and Floppy drive were probably not the most time consuming, but certainly the most annoying task of all. In order to install the drives you would have to unscrew four screws to remove the whole front panel. There are two screws on each side: one on top and one on the bottom on each side.


Above is the front cover laying face down. The only reason you would have to take the whole front panel off is only to unscrew the screws on the bay covers, otherwise the drive would slide in easily without having to remove the front panel.


I have to say it doesn't look so pretty with the front panel removed. I have never had to make so much mess to install my CD drives.


The Rogue provides users with 2 front panel USB's, Audio ports and an e-SATA connection that internally connect to your motherboards internal connections.



# 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!
