NZXT Gamma

NZXT Gamma Review

Introduction

Placed in the Classic Series, the NZXT Gamma is akin to the Beta and Beta EVO chassis’. Characterised by a simple, yet effective, layout, all three of these cases are designed for the more mainstream market due to their affordability at around the £30 bracket.

This is not to say the Gamma is a standard black box and front panel though , as with the Beta, it offers visual character that sets this case apart from similarly priced enclosures.

However, the Antec Two Hundred is still very much king of the hill in terms of budget chassis; the NZXT Beta, although well-intentioned, couldn’t quite deliver to the extent of the Antec enclosure and so it would appear the Gamma has been launched to put this right.
