Zero 2 is a steel full-tower case from NZXT supporting a total of nine fans, but only three of them come with the product. Let’s take a good look at this new model from NZXT.

This case has a front door, shown in Figure 3. This door uses a very strong magnetic mechanism. In Figure 4 we can see the case with its door opened.

NZXT Zero 2 has five external 5.25” bays and two 3.5” external bays for floppy disk drives and/or memory card readers. These two bays are a nice feature if you still use this kind of device, because several good-quality cases are not coming with external 3.5” bays anymore. The front panel has a 120 mm fan that glows blue when it is turned on (we will show this fan in Figure 13).

Even though the traditional audio and USB connectors are not located behind the door, the power and reset switches are. We don’t like this configuration, as you need to open and close the door every time you want to turn your computer on or off. We’d prefer to see these buttons on the top part of the case.
