NZXT has been making waves as of late with many funky looking cases such as the Apollo and Guardian, and this time round, they’ve managed to churn out something that’s more conventional that really looks like a classic computer, the NZXT Adamas Case.
The Adamas reminds me of the various classic cases of the yesteryears, such as the Coolermaster Praetorian Classic and Lian Li PC-60. I have always been a fan of rectangular aluminum boxes, mainly because I reside in a tropical country and SECC steel rusts easily. Nevertheless, Aluminum cases are very popular with enthusiasts all over the world, mainly because they are much lighter than their steel counterparts and supposedly dissipates heat faster too. The Adamas is quite uniquely built, with features like dampening straps and chunks of aluminum on the drive bay to help dissipate heat off components like hard drives. The case is also built using a 3mm aluminum frame and a 2mm alu construction, which gives the case a solid edge over those cheaper and flimsy aluminum cases.
Over the next few pages, we will take a closer look at the case. As usual first, the specs.
