A while back, NZXT came out with their first mid-tower chassis, the Guardian. Many of our long-time readers recall that the Guardian was not taken in very well because of its transformer-like bezel. We did receive a few emails from some who just loved the look of the chassis and asked when NZXT would come out with an update to the Guardian. Well, to those few people, your day has come!


Nemesis Elite

NZXT released their Nemesis line a while back, which consists of two models: the Nemesis (steel), and the Nemesis Elite (aluminum). We were excited to see what the new models were like and how they differed from each other as well as other cases that we have reviewed in the past and we finally have our chance today.

    thanks Anand.
    to all ppl that keep saying "who buys these cases", well go back and read #7. i say keep reviewing these monstrosities (someone buys them) but then review 10 normal/enthusiast/any-no-gimmick cases.

    The worst bit is this case isn't all that bad, they just had to piss all over it by putting an ugly front on it... I don't get why any manufacturer would do that... Reply

    That is the ugliest POS I have ever seen. I stopped reading the second I saw the picture on the first page. Does anyone actually buy these things? Reply

    Can you do nice case designs in the future... I would love to see reviews on more Lianli and antec cases... also what these two manufactures have in the budget line (-$100 cases)

    I think alof of people find these cases ugly... but Its nice that manufactures do make unique designs at least it keeps things fresh.

    You know, it's odd... but I think the 3 nicest looking cases I've seen reviewed on AT were all priced under $30.
    I'm not sure whether that makes me really cheap, or the fancier cases horrendously misdesigned.

    "but I'd rather review nothing than do any more of these."

    You know your get crappy parts for review when when you'd rather review nothing. :)

    #13 and others...

    Will you buy and send a case that you like to see to AnanTech for review?

    If not, then how do you think they will ever be reviewed?
