At 8.3 X 21 X 20.5 inches, there's no doubt that this is a big case. Its aluminum and plastic construction allow the Zero to weigh in at a relatively svelte 16 pounds and change. NZXT has included eight case fans to handle cooling duties and thirteen drive bays should give any user enough space for all their stuff. The Zero will also take just about any mobo you throw at it. Our review sample came without a PSU and we'll go over the features in more detail a bit later.
The Zero chassis arrived in an attractive cardboard carton and is sandwiched between two foam blocks. The front bezel is protected by a couple of layers of clear plastic film as well as a heavy plastic bag.
Inside the case, you get a manual and a box containing the mounting hardware and drive rails.
