NZXT from the beginning has had the gamer in mind when designing their product line. While the Trinity doesn't make use of the fancy molded fronts like previous models, it still has a lot of features that show the true nature of their targeted market.
To sum things up, we have a steel enclosure that still maintains a light weight. While the metal used is a thinner material than we've seen before, it is still an SECC specification and there were no issues with strength or structural integrity. The case is well built and sturdy. The side window adds some flair to the overall design, but I would have preferred to see a metal front bezel or at least door plate. It just wears so much better than plastic and stands up to a good deal more abuse.
As far as cooling is concerned, there are plenty of options for excellent airflow. Both the front and rear fan mounts allow you to make use of a variety of fan sizes and even the mount on the right side gives you the choice of either an 80mm or 92mm fan. Unfortunately there are only two fans included and both are of the 80mm variety. The lighted fan can only be this size, but the rear 80mm fan is the only other included in the default configuration.
While there are other pros and cons mentioned in this piece, one item I haven't talked about yet is price. You may recall that I mentioned the fact that one of the goals was a reasonable price and I think that in this area, NZXT did an excellent job. We're talking about a price tag of about US$85 and this includes a 400 watt power supply. This is what you would expect to pay for a bottom of the line enclosure with this type PSU included, not something that has features like those available here.
Bottom line... If you happen to be looking to build a new gamers rig and are looking for a case with features and good cooling capabilities but don't want to pay a small fortune just for that exterior covering, take a hard look at the NZXT Trinity. You'll be hard pressed to find a better value for your hard-earned upgrading dollars.
