Great review! I was laughing during the whole read.
I do have one question, is the inside painted black!?

Thanks guys, you may have found the case I have been looking for.

yup it is black as well and uses the same process as the outside from what I understand. I can e-mail and ask specifically how it is done if you'd like.

How many times have you gone out looking for a new case for your computer, only to find that all of the cool looking cases are way out of your budget range? Yep... just about every time you go, am I right? I have always thought to myself, "Why can't someone make a case that has all of the looks and the features I want, and not charge me a fortune for it?" Or, better yet, remove some of the features of the case that have been grossly overdone and sell it to me for a reasonable price. Do I really need you to include twelve case fans when I really only need two? Let's be real, I want a computer case that can keep my system at a reasonable operating temperature, not a freaking jet engine where I have to scream over the fans to talk to my family.



A friend's folding rig, he says the fan controller keeps all the fans on low and quiet:

I talked to the owner of NZXT via e-mail this morning and this is what he had to say on the inside finish:

Yup, before the steel is assembled the pieces are separated painted black

Thanks Nate. I was more or less poking fun at Brian. I think he mentioned that the case is black on the inside about 4 times during the review :)

But that is great to know! I am surprised it is painted by the piece and not as a whole chassis. =P~
