The ZERO 2s front panel has an appealing look to it with the mirrored and flat black combination. Hiding the drives behind a door was also a nice touch to keep the front flowing seamlessly. The dust filtration on the ZERO 2 was very solid and...

Video Review: NZXT ZERO 2 Case is an affordable case which falls into the budget category. It's only available in black and it's steel except for a few plastic parts. Since it's mostly steel it's really sturdy but this means it's...

So, how does the Zero 2 compare to the original? Is this an update or a downgrade? After playing with the Zero 2 for about a week, I'd have to say that it is a bit of both. NZXT kept the form factor but changed the case material from aluminum to...

The NZXT Zero 2 promises one thing: No-nonsense cooling. In this area, it certainly delivers, as the option to mount four 120mm fans on the side provides more than enough airflow, albeit with the attendant noise. Even if you just stuck with the...

The NZXT Zero2 is a solid case in the 100USD price range. It is flexible and we found few issues with it with the exception of possible compatibility issues with the newer and larger video cards like the GTX295. We would certainly recommend this case...

After using the Zero 2 for almost three weeks now, I really got used to the extra real estate and comfortable working environment the case offers. I swap parts out constantly as part of my hardware review duties so having a case with quick-release...

NZXT has made some excellent cases in the past and the Zero 2 continues the trend. This well built steel case has plenty of room to accommodate the most feature rich system. With thirteen drive bays you will be hard pressed to fill them all. The...

NZXT created a successor to their Zero chassis that they released, and it is a good computer case in its own right. The design is distinctive, but not distracting. It is solid steel which means it will not be light, but it will offer a ton of...

The NZXT Zero 2 PC case is very well made, with a lot of room for even the most powerful system out there, youll have plenty of room for hard drives and video cards in there. The included fans do an excellent job of cooling, and youve got...

A strange mixture of big talk and budget pricing The NZXT Zero II’s got a pretty face, but the body ain’t much. Installing a system in the NZXT Zero II is like taking a trip back to the first half of this decade. Although the front panel...

The NZXT Zero 2 is definitely quiet. No matter what I do, whether browsing the web, or doing a CPU test, I frequently check the case to make sure its still on because, coming from my old case, the sound I am receiving now seems that the computer...

We were able to roundup four 120mm fans and a couple of 80mm fans for the openings in the top and bottom of the case. Prior to installing these fans we ran a benchmark with the system using only the front and rear fans on the chassis. We then added...

We have been a long time fan boys of NZXT cases. Through the years weve been reviewing cases from them, we have always been impressed with their designs. They re-release cases that they have designed in the past and bring out various improvements to...

The NZXT Zero 2 is a pretty powerful chassis for its small size and price. Found available for around $90-$100 this chassis is the best full tower bang for your buck case. Relatively new to the market the Zero 2 supports an external eSATA connection...

Any PC extremist would appreciate a great designed case with tool-less construction, good cooling capabilities while capable to operate in whisper quiet mode at load. With the Zero 2 I like the durable and sturdy chassis constructed from a 1mm steel....

The NZXT Zero2 is a well built steel chassis. Although I do feel that it is a step in the wrong direction from the earlier Zero chassis, which came "fully loaded" with all fans pre-installed into its aluminum chassis. The NZXT Zero2 does offer great...

This case is very impressive for its cost. The Thermaltake armor has a lot of room and extras but I think I am swapping out my Thermaltake Armor for this case I love the 4 120mm fans as opposed to my big 240mm fan that the armor currently has. You get...
