Features:


•  NZXT Crafted Series Design: NZXT's latest addition to the Crafted Series takes cues from gaming culture with elegant curves and a newly designed clear side panel

•  Spacious Interior and Solid Construction: Built from solid .88mm and 1.00mm steel, the Guardian 921 gives the user ample space for large, high-end video cards and space for up to four internal hard drives

•  Constant Temperature Monitoring: Three temperature probe monitoring system allows the user to constantly gauge thermals within the system at all times to prevent overheating

•  Multimedia and peripheral inputs: E-SATA, Intel HD audio, mic, and two USB inputs are standards with the guardian 921 allowing for maximum peripheral input

•  Silent Cooling: Comes standard with 3 120mm fans installed to maximize cooling performance with minimal noise


The Guardian 921 is a steel mid-tower chassis of the size and weight one would expect to see, and will mount uATX, ATX and Babt AT motherboards. Three temperature probes provide the user with thermal data via a front panel display, and three 120mm fans will do the cooling chores in the 921. The specifications list a 400W PSU, but our review sample has no power supply.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION



The Guardian 921 arrived in a colorful and informative carton. Although the box was a bit distressed in shipping…



…the case arrived in pristine condition thanks to the packing. Styrofoam blocks sandwich the plastic wrapped case, and the side window and front panel plastics are protected with plastic sheeting, too.



Getting a little ahead of ourselves, with the side panel off you can see a black paper envelope with a white plastic snap closure.



The envelope contains the manual, a bag of standoffs and other hardware and six drive rails. We'll go over these items, and the rest of the 921's features and accessories, in the next section of this review. But first of all, let's have a look at the case.
