PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



Below the 120mm fan and PSU mount is the location for the installation of an ATX I/O back plate. Next to the ATX I/O back plate location are 4 designated PCI-E/PCI slots. The tabs covering the slots can be easily removed once the motherboard has been mounted. A value added feature to the NZXT ROGUE is the inclusion of a removable motherboard tray. The motherboard tray is secured to the rear of the chassis via a series of thumbscrews. Once the thumbscrews have been removed the tray slides backwards allowing the complete installation of a Micro ATX based motherboard and system components. This is an excellent feature if you're a DIY system builder or consistently upgrade your computer with the latest hardware products.


 


 
One of the nice aspects of the NZXT ROGUE is that it doesn't adopt the typical U shaped external shell design. Instead NZXT has gone the smart route by allowing you to remove the top, left and right side panels independently of each other. Once the top panel has been removed, a view of the interior reveals that the case is both spacious and well laid out. There is enough room to accommodate one mATX motherboard, peripheral cards, storage and optical components. Metal stand-offs have already been installed on the motherboard tray and there is additional wiring that routes directly from the front bezel and power supply area. Towards the front of the case is the location of the two external 5.25" drive bays as well as four internal 3.5 drive bays for maximum storage capacity.



 
To remove the left and right side panels is a very simple process, there are only 2 mounting screws on each side that have to be dealt with. With the screws gone the side panels come off with great ease. Earlier in the review, I commented on how the ROGUE is designed for maximum cooling and ventilation. A closer look at the side panels reveals the 120mm fan mounts. There are 3 NZXT branded 120mm case fans that have been positioned as intake and exhaust in order to move air sideways across the motherboard and installed components. Additional air filters have also been provided to assist in keeping dust bunnies at a minimum.
