For PC users on the go, a laptop is usually enough to get by with, but what happens when you go to a friend's house to do some gaming? In my instance, it involves quite a bit. Not only do I need to get together my screen, mouse and keyboard, but I also have to get ready to lug my Corsair Obsidian 800D and all the accompanying hardware. I remember after doing the review, I had to bring the chassis, fully loaded, up two flights of stairs to get it to the office for daily use. I told myself then that that would be the last move for that chassis until I decided to sell it.
So what are you supposed to do when the phone rings and your best mates are on the other end with a stack of your old favorite games? Well, you can lug your full tower everywhere you go, or you can start to think "portability". There are a couple of things that come to mind when I think portability in chassis design. First, you have to have a way to easily move or carry said chassis, and the second is having the room inside this smaller chassis to build what I like to refer to as a "sleeper". That is when you take a chassis and pack quite a bit of PC horsepower into a completely unassuming space, and it sort of surprises others as you peel open the side and show off your goods to your friends.
Why all this talk of "portability" and "sleeper" chassis designs? That is because NZXT has brought a new chassis design to the masses and is offering just that. Portability is covered in the smaller nature of the chassis, and taken a step further with an optional mountable handle for the top. To fit my description of a "sleeper" the chassis must be unassuming, small and have potential to put some of the best hardware available inside its outer shell, allowing you to not only have the ease of portability, but to have the equipment to still get the FPS needed to PWN your friends and deliver those embarrassing head shots. Today we are going to be looking at the Vulcan from NZXT's Crafted Series. Let's have an in depth look at just what this small chassis has to offer.
