    California-based chassis manufacturer NZXT is debuting a flashy new full tower PC gaming chassis by the name of Khaos. Priced at around $400 the Khaos is said to bring "breakthrough design in every category". Measuring 225 (W) x 612 (H) x 597 (D) mm, the new case is made out of aluminum (2mm and 3mm) and weights in 15.7 kg. Inside the case there are two 120 mm fans for intake, there's also place for over 8 HDDs and a three 120mm fan bracket placed exactly before the video card and the motherboard. But wait, there's place for more. One 120mm can be mounted at the back, and an additional 140mm fan spins at the top of the case. The Khaos chassis can also accommodate two bottom mounted power supplies. 5.25-inch bays for optical drives and other temp/LCD gadgets are 11 in number. What is more, Khaos comes standard with mounted rubber finished wheels, a handle mounted at the back for comfort during movement and removable motherboard tray. The chassis will be available later this month.

    It doesn't seem all that special, especially for $400.

    At first I was like :D then I saw the price.. I would pay 200$ at the most for it.. It looks really awesome but 400$? No thanks, I would rather have a high end video card or Quad core.

    Even if NZXT sold this case for $100, i wouldn't do it. Why? I bet its built cheaply. Everything i've seen from NZXT either falls apart or breaks over a short period of time.

    :laugh: I have a NZXT Zero for almost an year, and didn't fall apart.



    It's overpriced but still a very good case.

    Can someone please tell me why a gamer wants/needs a case that big? As long as it can fit a crossfire/sli setup and hold maybe four hdds (max) and an ODD then surely thats good enough. Especially if the said gamer wants to go to LAN parties... How many geeks have you seen built like brick shithouses? Adequate ventillation sure, but my new midi tower Antec Three Hundred has space for two front 120mm intake and comes with a rear 120mm exhaust and a 140mm blowhole, plus a spot on the side to aim at the cards if needed. Cost me £41 or in US $82 (though you wouldn't pay that much as we have 17.5% Value Added Tax...)

    That was the second thing I thought, the first was "nice those three fans in the middle". Then the "meh for $400 I'm not even getting them"-thought came.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I think THIS CASE is worth the hefty price tag... mainly because I'm a AMD lover. Whenever NewEgg decides to clear those out at some huge discount, I will have my card on hand and my other hand will be clicking add to cart. :)

    Antec 1200 is much better IMO, and it also has that nice black finish inside the case.
