Marketing is a huge part of any successful business structure. Companies try to draw our attention to certain products by using many different types of advertising, in hopes of getting part our hard earned cash. When it comes to the personal computer industry, we generally see words tossed around like gamer or enthusiast, and let’s face it the majority of people whom frequents forums like this one, consider themselves to some degree one of two.
In all honesty this has to be one of my biggest pet peeves as a reviewer. I find it very frustrating to hear, hey you will be getting this "enthusiast" piece of hardware, and when it shows up it is more often than not an entry level product. It has gotten to the point where you really have to take a close look at a product and research the snot out of it to make sure your getting what you were hoping for.
It is not very often that I have heard if ever, "you will be getting such and such" and it actually shows up as it was described. I must say this was a very refreshing way to start a review of a product. So first things first. I have to tip my hat to NZXT for being very straightforward with this particular product.
Today we will be looking at the NZXT Vulcan, it is being marketed as an enthusiast class Micro ATX LAN Party chassis. Now you may be wondering what is a "enthusiast class Micro-ATX LAN Party chassis" well the answer is really quite simple. Obviously it will have to fit some of today’s very large video cards that measure in over 11.2 inches in length, and yet be a small form factor enclosure. It must also be able to hold one of the flagship processors form either camp and the massive cooler to go along with it all the while keeping the temps in check.
Starting to sound interesting isn’t it? So enough puttering around here, lets dive into this chassis and see what we come up with.
Thanks go to NZXT for supplying the review sample.
