The NZXT Vulcan is ideal for a small LAN party PC, thanks to its carry handle, respectable cooling and small size. However, it won't be as appropriate for a day-to-day main desktop PC, as it can be noisy and it’s only got two internal 3.5in...

Right out of the box, the NZXT Vulcan is a small case. Specifically, it’s built to hold a mATX motherboard, but still packs a lot of room for components and cooling. The case height is the only area that doesn’t measure up to a full sized...

After going through the Vulcan top to bottom I was impressed. It has some very innovative design features and NZXT didn’t cut corners with anything. There are some things little things that could have been better but there can be on any case. If...

We have spent some time evaluating this chassis from NZXT, spanning both the USA and Canada. Overall, a very solid build from a platform designed as a portable LAN chassis. As we mentioned iBUYPOWER is offering this with the mighty HD5970 installed,...

Things seem to get smaller every time I go to an electronics store. I remember when I was a kid and would be at the electronics section of a supermarket, wishing I had one of those big, bulky portable black and white televisions that only picked up...

We recommend this case, but be sure to consider the 200mm fan if you want to dramatically lower system temperatures and enhance...

We'd like to thank our friends at NZXT for providing the Vulcan micro ATX case for our review today. The overall style, build quality, innovative use of beveled mesh elements, and dual-channel fan controller really won us over. The expandability...

It is fair to say that the styling of the NZXT Vulcan will split opinion; the rugged industrial look may not appeal to some users however there will be others who it really appeals to. For those consumers they will find a well built, flexible chassis...

Badass looks, but the whole is less than the sum of its parts. We’ve always been attracted to microATX cases and have long fantasized about building a high-performance PC in a small package. But cases designed for Micro ATX motherboards have...

What it lacks in looks, the Vulcan more than makes up for it in functionality. It is surprising that the case features so much enthusiast class attributes while sporting a budget level price. Installation was a breeze, thanks to the clearly labelled...

If you're looking to build a portable LAN rig, the NZXT Vulcan would be an extremely good case to use. It's small, it performs great, and it's got a handle! The only downside to the Vulcan is that you won't be able to use an ATX...

The NZXT Vulcan may have a few rather glaring drawbacks, like the fact that you will most likely end up with a noisy and compact CPU cooler as nothing else will fit or the fact that you will most likely end up scratching the thin paint job at the...

Although I am doing Pros and cons as well as conclusion in the videos now let me just say this: The NZXT Vulcan is the best m-ATX case I have ever seen and it even rivals a couple full size ATX cases out there. NZXT are putting themselves in the...

Once again, NZXT has come out with another quality case. They have provided an amazing, high end computer case with the intention of making the mobile gamers happy, and they’ve succeeded greatly. I was very pleased with the carrying handle and...

The aesthetics of the NZXT Vulcan are somewhat simple, it is not an overly decorative case nor is it completely unembellished, it does have the two included orange backlit fans. There are dust filters on the front intake fan as well as on the PSU bay...

Regardless, if you’re in the market for an enthusiast-class microATX case and don’t mind NZXT’s aggressive, angular aesthetics, the Vulcan delivers. And it does so without breaking the...

For those that never wanted to venture into the world of mATX computing may want to very it a look see now. The NZXT Vulcan combined with a nice overclocking motherboard like the ASUS Gene or MSI 890GX-65, you can have well made gaming rig. And it...
