The NZXT Zero 2 is the follow up of the original Zero full tower chassis. Composed of a sturdy 1.0mm steel chassis it still only weights a mere 10.2kgs (22.5lbs) for a full tower chassis. The quad side fans provide optimal cooler for multi GPU systems. A solid flat black color stretches across the case.
On the front of the case we find the same color but move onto a thick plastic instead of the steel. The quality of the plastic is very surprising despite its relatively cheap cost. Two semi circles of the standard black fit right into the somewhat X shaped high gloss plastic, which also has a metal fan grill at the bottom of it. The power button, silver in color, is found right below the opening of the door.
Upon opening the door we are revealed with five 5.25″ drive bays and two 3.5″ bays. Two heavy magnets hold the door tightly to the case. The reset button is found to the right of the two 3.5″ drive bays. The external connections are found on top of the case, built right into it; included are two USB ports, audio/mic jack and an eSATA port.
The left side panel is fairly plain except for the set of four 120mm fan grills near the rear of the case and slightly off center vertically to the case. Unfortunately NZXT doesn’t supply the four fans like they did with the original Zero chassis.
Moving on to the rear of the case we have the power supply and I/O holes along with the seven PCI slots and two 120mm fans with grills. I was surprised not to find any extra vents on the rear of the case like a lot of the other NZXT cases.
Two thumb screws are also attached to the left side panel for quick and easy access to the inside of the case.
