Gamers around the world are always looking for new and exciting products to make their rig customized to their liking. With the vast selection of computer cases on the market, there is a high demand to meet gamer's desire for individuality. In the past, most cases were off-white and very basically designed, but those days are long gone and the cases today can be very flashy. Every computer geek would like to one up his/her friend's rig to claim gaming machine bragging rights, and the case is a good place to start.
NZXT has been around since 2004, serving the computer gaming market with unique power supplies and computer cases. They have sent over the Adamas from their Classic Series of cases, but it does not seem like the typical NZXT case. It looks nothing like the flashy NZXT Apollo they sent us back in August, and it has a more refined appearance which I prefer.
From the NZXT web site: "Latin adams, adamant-, from Greek, unconquerable, impenetrable, hard. A legendary stone of impenetrable hardness, formerly sometimes identified with the diamond. Introducing the Adamas, the luxurious high end chassis from NZXT. crafted from 3mm and 2mm aluminum this chassis can support well over 300lbs. The Adamas features a patented tool-less technology for the front and side panels and unique finned drive bays for added cooling. Both the extruded chassis and four stock 12cm fans make for a superior cooling system."
