|NZXT Beta Closer Look|
|Installation, Testing and Conclusion|
Today we have a special treat; the Beta chassis from NZXT. This promises to have a simple look with good cooling without sacrificing the low price point. NZXT has nearly always been about the gamer. We have taken a look at their cases in the past and they have always gained good marks. We will take an extended look at this case and find out if it delivers on its promises.
This case comes with no expensive packaging to emblazon it. If I had seen it on a shelf in a store I would have passed it by without a second glance. Normally no-name, inexpensive, all-aluminum cases come in packages like that. But since NZXT is coming from a different angle this time around it is simply a standard cardboard box silently providing its specs to anyone who cares to looks closer.
