Introduction

NZXT are an American company primarily known for their unique looking cases geared towards the gaming market. NZXT is a corporation formed by gamers, for gamers, and with the NZXT Khaos we’re looking at today they’ve really made an attempt to mark their place in the high end of the market. We’ve reviewed quite a few of their cases in the past, but this is the first one to really foray into this territory. It is a fantastic looking case constructed from high quality materials, but with a hefty price tag of £270 and no extras such as a PSU, the NZXT has a lot to prove.

Packaging & Bundle

The NZXT Khaos arrives in a smartly designed box with a carrying handle. The front design has a picture of the case with the two intake fans lit up, and a couple of the features written in a serif font, giving it a serious look. Both sides of the case list the specifications, and the back has an extended list of features. Inside the box, the case is wrapped in a plastic bag and padded by two styrofoam pieces. All in all, the packaging is simple and attractive but not the most exciting we’ve seen.

Inside the case there is a black pouch containing a basic instruction manual, a connector for using 2 PSUs, and the necessary screws. Although not too important, it would have been nice to see a couple of extra thumbscrews in the package.
