Sequels seem to be the trend in today’s movies and games, so not to stray away from regularity today we are going to look at yet another sequel case from NZXT, the Zero 2. This case claims to give an advantage to cooling enthusiasts. More specifications below and then we will get down to business.
NXZT is a relatively new company when compared to others like Cooler Master, Zalman and others, so to find out more, we'll take a look at their company profile.
NZXT, a company built upon gamers dreams, hopes to create products that put consumers first. Our objective is to provide every gamer with a case that they can identify with. Combining unique design and case performance, consumers will finally be able to find a quality case that will represent their own style and personality.
In the future, NZXT wishes all gamers who desire a personalized case to find it at NZXT. With the unveiling of every product, NZXT improves upon on weaknesses and strives for excellence. Achieving perfection is not an easy task, however, NZXT is determined to meet and surpass consumer expectations.
Our dedicated sales and customer service team will also work diligently to earn your trust and loyalty. All our products are built with high quality material and engineered in the best conditions.
NZXT products are designed and engineered in the United States and manufactured overseas in China and Taiwan.
NZXT was established in 2004 in Los Angeles, California.
Like many other companies, ideas are designed and honed here in North America, but cost of production here forces many companies to get their products built overseas.
Introducing the Zero 2, the follow-up to the successful ZERO, featuring the same extreme cooling capabilities, the ZERO 2 is the perfect home to enthusiast and gaming users. Featuring a sturdy 1.0mm steel chassis, the Zero's structural integrity cannot be doubted. Weighing at 10.2KG the zero 2 is a beast of its own. Zero 2's quad side fans are perfect for users running multi GPU systems.
