NZXT Rogue Small Form Factor Gaming Chassis
December 18, 2007

Their latest offering is no different. The NZXT Rogue Small Form Factor Gaming Chassis is a Micro ATX form factor case that is almost completely Aluminum, has five 120mm fan mounts, offers a removable motherboard tray, and includes a carrying strap for toting the system to LAN parties... to name a few of its features. The Rogue is shown below with the carrying strap in place, all set for action.

Packaging:

The Rogue case arrived in a rather large cardboard box that immediately had me questioning the phrase "small form factor". The black box featured a few images of the case, as well as some of the basic information seen in the lists above. I lifted it up by the carrying handle on top, and again wondered what I was going to find inside as it seemed way heavier than I would have imagined, too.
