Default NZXT Panzerbox Classic Series Mid-Tower

Do you find most mid-towers a little too large, but find small form-factor chassis' to have the opposite issue? The latest entry to NZXT's "Classic Series", the Panzerbox, may have you covered. This sturdy aluminum chassis is neither too large nor too small, yet it still offers ample internal room for effective cooling. It doesn't look too bad, either!

You can read Bill's full review here and discuss it here!

This case is pretty cool. i like the PSU placement cause i think bottom is not very good if ur room is carpeted like mine. the amount of dust gathered when i moved my PC i was like, Whoa!!
that reminds me, gotta get my air blower repaired!

Price VS performance this is a great little case. The downsides I reported are really not a big issue. As for dust, it has already pulled in quite a bit, but atleast there is enough airflow to push most of it back out as well, lol.

I have to admit, I love this case! I wasn't sold on the exterior at first, but once I saw inside and understood the entire design better, I came to appreciate it a lot more. It's really a stellar little LAN case, that's for sure.

Haha, I said the same thing to him the other day. I wish I had that much ambition!

Now I know I have been doing this for awhile since I was personally somewhat disappointed with the outcome of that build too, lol!

THanks guys!
