Excerpt: NZXT's Panzerbox has proven itself to be worthy of both its name and NZXT's motto. It is armored not only against the prying eyes, and hands of your lanparty adversaries, but against the heat produced by modern high-watt hardware.
Summary: NZXT Panzerbox Case is a perfect option for anyone looking for a small mid-tower ATX case. It's great for gaming LAN party use or or any application where an all aluminum, well craft strong small ATX case is required.
Conclusion: The NZXT Panzerbox is a well built and designed case, it might be small but it offers up lots of room and it’s big on features. I really like this case actually, I’m going to be using it for another system actually, a gaming system that will be connected to my 47” HDTV via HDMI.
Conclusion: The main impression I had after reviewing the case was, that it sure is nice to see something out of ordinary every now and then. NZXT took a bold step by revamping the internal layout, and the layout of the Panzerbox sure has some merits. It also did well in our temperature tests.
Pros: Build quality, Easy radiator mounting, (Nice to see something out of ordinary for a change)
Cons: Few drive bays for a case this size, Noisy, No dust filters
Summary: The NZXT Panzerbox is a pretty decent case overall. Like most cases, it has a few excellent features but also some areas that could use a bit of work. I was able to quickly install a system in this case thanks to the removable motherboard tray that had a big enough opening for a large HSF as well.
Pros: Nice aggressive design, All aluminum = light + strong, Wide body give a lot of internal room, Good airflow with huge fans, Removable motherboard tray, Compatible with large heatsinks/water cooling kits
Cons: No dust filters, Not a quiet case, Only two anti-vibration bays
Summary: The NZXT Panzerbox is a great case. The company has had the guts to design a completely new case, while trying to be able to stuff the same amount of parts into much less overall space.
Pros: Extremely compact case, Light weight, Can be stuffed with full sized hardware, Very well constructed frame, Water cooling ready, Removable mainboard tray, Removable hard drive cage, Hard drive cage is rubber mounted, Plenty of air flow: 2 x 190 mm & 1 x 120 mm, Lots of space for large PSUs and CP...
Cons: Fans are extremely loud, No dust filters on large intake fan, PSU may block graphics cards with large, non-reference cooling solutions, No external 3.5 inch bay, No hole for easy CPU cooler removal on mainboard tray, ODDs will cover part of the mainboard connectivity - plan your installation step...
Conclusion: The Panzerbox is definitely a step up from the Beta that we saw recently; the black aluminium constructions looks top class with the whole chassis well put together. The side-mounted power supply allows for the reduced height and whilst this is good, I can’t help but feel that I’d prefer either a...
Conclusion: So you are looking for a case small enough to take to a LAN event, but big enough to house your twin graphic card system that's also got a CPU water loop... with a pot a Vaseline and some patience the Panzerbox could indeed be the case for you.
