NZXT Rogue SFF Gaming Chassis Review

[ad#review954-top]If you are a gamer you probably go to a lot of LAN parties. LAN parties are a lot of fun, but hauling all of your gear there is quite a pain, I know from experience. I hated hauling my huge full size tower and all of my accessories to the LAN party. With mATX gaming motherboards coming out it gives gamers another choice when it comes to building a new system. Match that motherboard with the Rouge SFF Gaming Chassis and you have the perfect gaming rig. Let’s take a look at the Rogue and see if it will persuade you to go the mATX route.

Opening the box up inside we find the Rogue nicely protected with large pieces of Styrofoam and plastic. I like that NZXT covered the top window. I’ve seen so many case windows get scratched if they don’t have this type of protection.
