Picking the right tower to house hot running components has become an art form. For many, we take into consideration expansion room, cooling potential, graphics card support. Features which until this point were reserved for chassis in the $100+ range. Not anymore however. The NZXT Gamma is poised to change these rules.
The Gamma features an all black colour scheme, inside and out and has a unique design to attract those tired of the typical computer box. It is constructed of steel, weighing in at 13lbs (6kg) and 19 x 44.8 x 50.8 cm The front panel has meshed vents along with USB, Audio and eSATA connectors.
Internally the case is very similiar to others such as the NZXT Beta. It features 4 x 5.25″ and 7 X 3.5″ drive bays all of which have a tool-less feature. Adding to the long list is support for graphics cards up to 10inches long and even a cutout for installing thebackplates on modern CPU Coolers.
The unique styling of this latest case might not appeal to everyone but as they say, its whats inside that counts. First up is cooling capacity, of which the Gamma has plenty. The front bay can accommodate a 120mm fan which is standard fair these days. On the side panel there is room for two more 120mms, with the back housing the last slot for the 120mm variety. However, it doesn’t end there as the top part of the chassis can take twin 120/140mm fans. For those who lost count that is six fan slots in a sub $70 case.
The case has already been launched in Europe at a price of 39.90 EURO ($59.99USD) and is likely to make its way across the waters soon.
