NZXT Nemesis Elite Black: Broad-fronted Lightweight

Midi Towers: You've Come a Long Way, Baby
By

The Nemesis from NZXT has to have the flashiest design of recent times. The front of the case is more like the shield of a mounted knight than anything else. The side window gives a view into the shiny aluminum case. Other highlights are the hinged ports and the fold-out display for fan control. The midi tower's looks are rounded out by the many illuminated 4.7" (120mm) fans.

Cheerful and flashy design
Front Sections And Connectors

Opening the front reveals the 5.25" drive bays. But be careful opening the door as several cables for the colorful front lighting run through its hinge. You can select the color of the LEDs at the touch of a switch.

The large display, which is folded out on the top, is easy to read. Several heat sensors, that can be easily placed in the case, are displayed in the blue-lit display.
