PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH

 

 
Out of the box, my initial impressions of the NZXT ROGUE SFF Gaming Chassis were extremely positive. The first and most striking feature about this case is its size. If you were looking for a small footprint, you'll be surprised at what this case has to offer.


The ROGUE measures approximately 368 (W) x 278.2 (H) x 443.9 mm (D) and weighs in at 9.2 kgs without a power supply installed.



On the aesthetics front, NZXT decision to design the ROGUE out of 3mm aluminum and steel will be well received by gamers as construction is top notch. One attractive feature of the case is the beveled fins located on the left and right side panels. A top mounted window provides an internal view of installed system components. There are a staggering five 120mm fan mounts available, 2 on each side panel and one on the rear for maximum cooling and ventilation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
On the bottom left hand side of the case, NZXT has included a suite of front mounted ports that include dual USB 2.0, E-SATA, Headphone and Microphone. The ports are attached to a series of extender cables which must be connected to the proper headers on a motherboard prior to use. A wiring guide is provided in the user's manual for those consumers who require assistance.


 
The NZXT ROGUE features a swing away door which reveals the external drive bays. The door is held in place via a series of small magnets that are embedded into the front bezel. A total of 2 x 5.25" and 1 x 3.5" external drive bays are provided to handle any type of component configuration. Since this case is being marketed for gamers, NZXT has included a small chrome lock that is embedded into the top left part of the front bezel. The lock uses a set of keys, which are included in the package and is welcome addition added security and a deterrent for chassis intrusion. Underneath the single 3.5" external drive bay is the location for a small chrome Power and Reset switch.


 
The rear of case has been sanctioned off into two sections with the PSU mount towards the top right. The PSU mount is very accommodating allowing consumers to install a full size ATX PSU of their choice to handle the demands of power hungry components. To the left of the PSU mount is the location for a 120mm fan mount which acts has a rear exhaust. NZXT includes 120mm LED fan that is secured to the case via wire fan grill.
