NZXT has released a ultra-premium case called Khaos. This new chassis is made out of 2mm and 3mm thick aluminum and costs a whopping $399. The case has 11 5.25" drive bays, supports 8 HDDs, a removable motherboard tray and it has enough room for seven large fans.

The Khaos features wheels and a handle and one of the special features is the support for two power supplies and a start-up cable so you can bundle two lower wattage PSUs to save money. Sounds alright but I don't think anyone that's willing to spend $399 on this case won't have enough money to buy a decent high wattage PSU. Another special feature of the case is the wind tunnel that moves air through the center of the case, it uses three 120mm fans but unfortunately these aren't even included with the case.





Features:
  • Complete aluminum build with arching side panels and a symmetrical design
  • Thick aluminum built using welding technology to further strengthen the structure
  • Allows a total of 7 fans with a triple 120mm center bracket creating a wind tunnel and moving air through the center of the chassis
  • Dual power PSU support and start-up cable, manage costs by using lower wattage PSUs and splitting the power
  • Handle and wheel to move the chassis
  • Eight hard drive support
