NZXT Vulcan mATX Case Review

“Unique. Unprecedented. Inspired.”  This is the motto of NZXT and the Vulcan Case is the embodiment of all three words. NZXT computer cases have really broken into the scene over the past few years, especially with their New Micro ATX case the Vulcan. I was excited to see someone come out with a computer case like this, having always been on the lookout for a good lan party case to make transporting everything easy.  The Vulcan was created with serious Gamers in mind with enough space for a full sized graphics card while still maintaining sufficient airflow.   Now let’s take a look at the NZXT Vulcan.  Who knows?  This might be the next purchase for your MATX gaming build.

Special thanks to NZXT for providing us with the Vulcan mATX Case to Review.

Packaging
The NZXT Vulcan comes in a box so small that you begin to wonder how all your stuff will fit into the case. Looking at the front of the box you have a picture of the NZXT Vulcan. On other side of the box there is a detailed lettered diagram of the Vulcan at the top half and a diagram key listed below.

Upon opening the box, the case is nicely protected by two pieces of styrofoam.  When you pull the Vulcan out of the box there is a plastic bag wrapped around it to ensure it is safe during transport. Below is a photo of the case entirely removed from the packaging.
