Abandon all hope, thee who enter here, for I shall win


To NZXT
you might want to edit the description page for the PSU, the last line says
"Ext. ports: 2 x usb 2.0, mic, firewire 1394 and headphone jack "
(I never seen that on a PSU, but they come up with new stuff all the time. )

Please remember to offer up some advice to NZXT to give them ideas on what to do to please you.

Shut up perverts.

It would please me if I won the faceplate. I only wish this were a little earlier. I just built my mom a new PC from spare parts (p4/1.7, 512 RDRAM@800mhz, gforce3 AGP on a Intel D850GB board) and a new case. She really liked it and it all lit up red and was dragons everywhere, which she really loves. Adding that NZXT plate would have been just thing thing to send it over the top and make it that much cooler.

Oh well. Next time! Maybe I can put it in my new Ubuntu RAID server when I win. The temp readings would be helpful for all the hard drives I've added.

Is the door on the case transparent or slightly opaque? What about using Privacy Glass for the window (controllable with a remote and/or software)?

Oh man, someone mentioned Ubuntu!



It's funny you mention your mom. I gave my mom my Socket A PC when I built the 939 back in the day, and she was the same way. "Ooh blue lights", haha.

I'm using Ubuntu cause it's easy and I don't need more complicated crap in my life. I deal with enough cow-orkers in a day.

Awesome giveaway. Maybe NZXT should consider some liquid cooling options with some of their high end cases, or just stand alone. When air cooling just isnt enough

Weee, I didn't even know this site, but my ears perked up at the mention of NZXT.

I own one NZXT case and it is nice! It's a Nemesis, awesome orange color.

There's a couple of things I would improve; the front door design prevents the use of any sort of fan controller or things with larger buttons on it - they might have fixed that on the Apollo, I have not read the reviews yet.

Also, I would make sure the fan filters are easy to clean; it's no so bad on the Nemesis, the side fan has a big plastic N over it and you can sortof squeeze a rag under it to pick up the dust, but it's a bit sharp so it's not a fun task. And the front filter, forget it. There's probably a giant fur ball stuck in the Nemesis' "mouth" that I can't even see.

Other than that... Well, the Nemesis is a nice pre-mod, aesthetically the only complaint I have is that the inside floor of the case is the standard gray sheet metal color. It's impossible to match the outside color (orange!) and with the window, it's something you see all the time. Not very pretty. Maybe a simple plastic cache or painting the inside would make it perfect.

Just my 2 cents

That is an awesome prize! Definitely would like to win that.

As far as improving NXT...I don't know, maybe even better cooling options.
