The case itself is great. It looks awesome and the entire thing is screwless (which is very user-friendly). The slide-in locks for the drives are downright cool. The lighting effects are pretty amazing, but they need the option to be be shut down manually or simply need to turn off automatically after a while. The black paintjob on the case is very well done, the side-window is just extremely cool. Speaking of cool, the fans are okay, not too loud at all yet remember, only two are equipped. With current high-performance PC's you might run into trouble cooling down the case. The design really needs a top fan. Heat elevates towards the top of your PC, so it needs to exhaust there with a silent fan. Also, an 80mm fan can be mounted at the front of the chassis, this would cool down the HD's. If you have more then two of them, especially high RPM drives, I recommend to do this.
Next to these small remarks NZXT has done a truly wonderful job in designing this case, we hope it's the first of many designs. When we look at the price versus what you get for your money... well there are very little products out there that can beat the ~99 USD pricetag. A very good product for that kind of money, well let me correct that, it's a steal for that money! If you are interested in a case like this, you'll love it.
The Guardian PC Case review Most of you desire a non-standard PC Case, face it .. you are a visitor of Guru3D.com which means you crave a need for the best hardware. One big downside though, if you are one of those people who is well .. to lazy to case-mod, have two left hands or simply does not have the time to make a case-mod then what to do ? Luckily for us there are a few companies out there who saw this gap in the market and when you are ready to pay some dough, you can pretty much buy anything to your likings; NZXT is such a company.
