It has an interesting interior layout, but the Panzerbox can’t match other cases for noise reduction....

The NZXT Panzerbox is a perfect case all round. When NZXT started designing their case from the ground up they had to cover a lot of aspects throughout development. They had to ensure that they had a sturdy design, strong aesthetic features and a...

Tiny enclosure holds a whole lotta stuff NZXT’s Panzerbox is akin to a Mini Cooper. It might look diminutive, but it has a surprising amount of space and is feature-packed, to boot. The Panzerbox is smaller than a mid-tower yet it has a slide-out...

The sizes of computer chassis have become predominantly bigger as the space needed inside a computer increases. With multiple setups such as RAID, SLI and Crossfire appearing more and more, the proper chassis has to be used. A lot of users do look at...

Is the Panzerbox 'LAN ready'? With two 190mm fans and 120mm exhaust, support for high performance hardware, water-cooling, and a pure aluminum build I would say so. It's also one of the lightest mid-towers we've ever seen. With a decent...

So you are looking for a case small enough to take to a LAN event, but big enough to house your twin graphic card system that's also got a CPU water loop... with a pot a Vaseline and some patience the Panzerbox could indeed be the case for you. The...

Once you get the NZXT Panzerbox out the box and into your hands, you immediately know what the case is all about. The complete aluminum architecture of the case is amazing and very strong. I had my doubts before opening the box but that was shortly...

The NZXT Panzerbox is an excellent case, with a few interesting features that I like. It's obvious that thought went into the design and effort went into its appearance. With its low-profile finish, gentle curves and sleek black mesh, it's...

based on their own needs. Secondly, there's the noise issue. NZXT markets the Panzerbox as a gaming chassis and we shouldn't expect it to be silent. However, the two 190mm fans put out a pretty hefty roar that, while providing excellent cooling...

The Panzerbox is a nice little step up from the Beta, but it is also stepped up in price. Not that the price is bad though, coming in at about $100 for a solid case is reasonable. The Panzerbox does come with some of the nice options that high end...

Overall the NZXT Panzer box is a good case with some great features. The case isn't much of a looker but it is small, compact and lightweight. There isn't a lot of expansion space but there is more than enough for the necessities. One...

s The Panzerbox is definitely a step up from the Beta that we saw recently; the black aluminium constructions looks top class with the whole chassis well put together. The side-mounted power supply allows for the reduced height and whilst this is...

Reviewing the Panzerbox was a very pleasant experience because the entire design deviated drastically from typical mid-tower reference designs. I would have liked to see more cable management features included as well as some dust filters for each...

Ingenuity and great designs have revolutionized the world. Time and time again -- from the very first computer, to the first tanks that were rolled out during the First World War. Speaking of tanks, one of the most famous tanks of the Second World War...

Overall the Panzerbox is a great case, it’s got a lot of room, it’s well made and installation is easy with the removable motherboard tray and the thumbscrews. The dual 19omm fans will most certainly keep any system cool, and you can fit...

Video Review: NZXT Panzerbox Case is a perfect option for anyone looking for a small mid-tower ATX case. It's great for gaming LAN party use or or any application where an all aluminum, well craft strong small ATX case is required. It looks great,...

What a joy the NZXT Panzerbox is. Aside from its compact and very portable size it retains a sturdy feel. The Panzerbox's skin is typically 1.5mm thick aluminum panels and an aluminum mesh screen. This however is layered on top of a rather sturdy...

As stated earlier about the high noise coming from the high output fans, you could go with a combination similar to below. This is the Panzerbox with their new Sentry LX fan controller however notice how it uses 2 of the 3 optical bays. If this is...

I've always been a fan of innovative designs and therefore, I really like the NZXT Panzerbox. Though it is a performance-oriented case, with its two 190mm fans and vented structure, it still looks good. I particularly enjoyed the fact that...
