Ghost Whisper ers
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-res and then scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
We always start off with packaging. A nice cushion of Styrofoam and plastic separate the case from the box and in transit abuse. The chassis arrived without a dent or scratch in it.
And once unpacked, there we have it. Simple, stylish .. surely not everyone in the market would like to opt a screamy case with the LED fans and chrome to match. Yeah, bling isn't for everybody alright.
On the topic of pimping and showing the goods, the Whisper doesn't have to have a window side panel either.Both side panels show a simple flat black paint scheme, there is little else to see here. At the top we see the power button and the LEDs for HDD activity and system power. Admittedly, I kinda like it.
It's all black, expect for da back.
At the rear we see that the power supply is housed very low in this chassis. There's a downside to this, some of the PSUs will have a hard time reaching the ATX connector and CPU connector to the motherboard. Youll need to keep a CPU power extension cable handy (not included), or get a PSU with long cabling.
The bezel / frontside door is plastic with the actual front from what seems to be aluminum. Which is weird as the rest of the chassis is made out of metal. The door itself is a mesh which allows cooler air to be pulled in through the front by the bottom 120mm fan.
Here we test the NZXT Whisper chassis. A nice design chassis that is big in size (full-tower) yet with a focus on decent airflow in that chassis, and the room for everything you can think of. Are the looks fooling us or is this a really worthy chassis concept ?
