Introduction:

Today we are looking at one of the latest cases to come off the line over at NZXT.  We've got a look at the fat wide-body NZXT Panzerbox Classic Series welded all aluminum ATX case.  This case offers some great features, a lot of room and a low stance that is a bit deceiving.  From the initial look at this case, you'd think that there isn't a lot of room inside, but when you consider that it is almost 10" wide, it really opens up the possibility for being a roomy case.

The case came in a nice box boasting that it is "LAN Ready".  We'll take a look more at that idea down the road, but in the meantime, I'm grateful that it came in one piece as UPS can be rough on stuff.  The bundle included with the case is pretty standard and included some extra thumbscrews as well as the usual standoffs for the motherboard.

Before we carry on any farther, we'll take a look at the features and specs of this case according to NZXT.

 

Specifications:

Panzerbox features the best airflow in its class, boasting two 190mm and one 120mm fans that churn out a combined 300 CFM. The Panzerbox's pure aluminum design makes it a light and luxurious option for travel and LAN parties and the welded chassis enhances strength and support. Dual radiator support and full expandability with room for high performance 10.5" cards, 4 hard drives, 3 5.25" drive bays, and oversized heatsinks offer gamers and enthusiasts even more options to increase performance while a removable motherboard tray makes upgrades easy and painless.
