Final Thoughts and Conclusions
The NZXT Vulcan is quite possibly one of the most well-designed micro-ATX cases I’ve ever tested. The overall design, expandability options, support for the longest graphics cards on the market, and competitive price point really puts it into a class of its own. The overall construction is really quite surprising considering this case retails for only $70 with free shipping. I also need to confirm that the top panel can house a dual radiator solution for a custom watercooling setup because I know most gamers having gone away from typical air-cooled systems to water-cooled ones.
The NZXT Vulcan micro-ATX case is available at Newegg.com for $69.99 with free shipping. Consumers can also purchase the Vulcan case from Amazon.com for $69.99.
We’d like to thank our friends at NZXT for providing the Vulcan micro ATX case for our review today. The overall style, build quality, innovative use of beveled mesh elements, and dual-channel fan controller really won us over. The expandability options with the Vulcan were also a pleasant surprise because typically space is at a premium with micro ATX cases. But, NZXT’s design team hit one out of the park with this case and was able to find unique ways to change the design of the case to promote better airflow and a well thought-out style that really gives gamers most of the things they have asked for in their gaming cases.
- Lightweight chassis
- Nice contrast of mesh, aluminum, and plastic elements
- Large non-slip case handle
- Beveled side panel that holds 200mm fan
- Very competitive price point
- No tool-less rails for the optical drives
- Fan LED light button should be located on the front panel with the fan controller
- Poor thumbscrew design
