Mods:
I know this is more of a tweak than a mod, but hey you gotta start somewhere! Removed all stock fans and replaced with red aluminium NorthQ's. Asetek LCLC Push/Pull mod. NZXT Zero Stock LED Replacements. Acrylic Etching...

The NZXT Zero is a tight case, not much room for cable management, I could have done better, but at least is gives me something to do in the future! The raptor has been encased in a Scythe Quiet Drive and the 500GB SATAII has been mounted on anti-vibration heat-dissapating rails. No overclocking as yet, only a week old!

good parts and nice case. lighting is nice - maybe go for all black and red though? just an idea.


also cable management be a good idea does look messy.

overall though 7/10

Cheers for the comments! I need to play with my cable ties and stuff but my eagerness to use the thing is winning :) The blue cathode is a spare from an old case, I'm kinda thinking that I need to ditch it too in favour of all red as suggested.

Nice system !!

Got a question for you ....

where you got Asetek Liquid Cooling (LCLC) since it's a OEM product ?

Nice specs 9/10

the NZXT Zero is a pretty huge case (I've worked on them before for clients) and they are pretty fun to do cable management on (fun like falling down a flight of stairs) so I'm not letting the bad cable management affect your score xD
