Not long ago we reviewed the Akasa Omega, a large high performance case designed to appeal mostly to hardware enthusiasts. While the Omega was a very good case, its simplistic appearance wouldn’t really attract modders and gamers. Today we will have a look at a case from Akasa designed to appeal exactly to these groups of people, the Infiniti Zor. The Infiniti Zor is designed to be visually appealing but also to offer superior thermal performance for high-end gaming systems. We are going to examine its ergonomics, thermal performance and overall quality in this review.

Packaging and Bundle
The Akasa Infinity Zor is supplied in a large and heavy package which betrays the size of the case. The cardboard box is thick and the case is secured between two hard Styrofoam pieces which should be enough to protect the case during transportation despite its relatively heavy weight. Plenty of information and technical specifications about the case can be found at the rear.
There was a time a few years ago that Hi-Fi/AMP like HTPC cases were everywhere. That has changed a bit in recent times due to some excellent m-ATX boards allowing builds in compact chassis however there is still something about the home theatre component style of design which can be appealing...
