PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The Panzerbox is listed as an aluminum mid-tower chassis, but as we'll see later, NZXT has a few tricks up their sleeves with the internal arrangement. It sports a 120mm fan as well as a pair of big 190mm units that push a combined 300 CFM to keep the interior components nice and cool. Room for the latest, biggest graphics cards and coolers and a removable motherboard tray are just a few of the nice features here, and the Panzerbox will accept just about any mobo a user will want to put in it.
The Panzerbox carton is an unusual shape, kinda shorter and wider than I usually see. We'll see why in a bit. The carton had a significant ding in one corner, but thanks to the Styrofoam blocks and plastic bag packing, the case was undamaged.
A cardboard box secreted inside the case contains the installation hardware, thoughtfully segregated and labeled according to application. Two metal brackets are also provided, allowing the user to install a single- or double-120mm radiator and fans for liquid cooling applications. We'll discuss this in more detail later. NZXT also includes a user's manual with all the information one would need to do an install in the Panzerbox.
