Excerpt: NZXT’s Panzerbox is akin to a Mini Cooper. It might look diminutive, but it has a surprising amount of space and is feature-packed, to boot. The Panzerbox is smaller than a mid-tower yet it has a slide-out motherboard tray, is made entirely of aluminum, and includes support for 12.2-inch videocards and even water cooling. At $120, it’s even affordable. On paper, the NZXT Panzerbox seems like the perfect case to house your LAN gaming rig. But is there a catch?
Pros: Water-cooling support; fits giant GPUs; good stock cooling; small and lightweight.
Cons: Inconvenient PSU placement; toolless HDD/ODD bays would be nice.
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. It looks great, has a fair number of drive bays, excellent air circulation, removable motherboard tray and much more. This is one of the best small mid-tower cases on the market!

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 top or bottom positioned PSU nine times out of ten. It just makes cable management much easier giving more space to plug in the cables.
Conclusion: Nu hvor jeg sidder og har arbejdet med Panzerbox kabinettet fra NZXT så husker jeg tilbage på dengang hvor deres første kabinet blev introduceret til markedet og folk var målløse. Det var første gang nogen for alvor turde spille op med de store mærker og lave løsninger der overhovedet ikke lignede noget PC branchen var vant til.
