NZXT is back with a sophisticated new case that proves to be one of the most “solid” we’ve ever taken a look at. It also includes a few innovations not seen in other cases. The primary downside? Small interior. Read on to see all of what this case has to offer.
The doors to the Adamas require absolutely no screws. Each door has two latches that you press down to release… very easy. But, while the door is secured, there is no chance of it falling off due to lack of screws. None.
The left side of the case contains two large 120mm intake fans. Like the front mounted one, it will suck in cool air to help keep the PC cool.
If you haven’t gathered by now, this is one black case. Looking at the back proves it. Every single space on the exterior that someone will notice, is pitch black. Definitely a classy looking case as a whole.
The opposite side of the case is clean of anything. The door has the same ease of removal as the other side though.
Inside, we can see a better view of the only exhaust 120mm fan in the case.
This is one small case, as you can see in the following picture.
The front 120mm intake fan that I mentioned earlier is better seen here.
The case is built for good heat distribution and dissipation, so the storage mounts for your CD-Roms, hard drives and other peripherals are no exception. The brackets also help dampen noise.
One thing I do not like about the case thus far, are the rear slot blockers. Once removed, they cannot be put back. You simply tear them off the case and be done with it.
Finally, here is a better view of the top heatsink design and also the dual 120mm intake fans on the door.
I have to admit, this is one of the best looking cases i have seen in a while, and is definitely comparable to Silverstone offerings.
