NZXT Gamma

NZXT Gamma – Externals

The packaging is reflective of that seen with the Beta: a simple brown cardboard box so as to keep costs to a minimum. Essentially the trick with a budget case is to do just this and cut as many corners as possible without going too far and sacrificing the core elements of a system enclosure: cooling, layout and to a lesser extent visual appeal.

So it makes sense that the accessories aren’t anything special; for example the thumbscrews are plastic, not metal, and the manual is a flimsy fold out sheet of paper.

That said, these details are fairly irrelevant in the grand scheme of things and it’s good to see a rail-based installation for the hard drives if not the external 5.25” drives.

Moving on the enclosure itself, the externals are defined by the front fascia with a zigzag side view. Four external 5.25” drive bays, each with a meshed cover, occupying the top half, more meshing at the bottom and the ports bang in the middle.
