The Switch 920 will be the first post in a series of products that were mostly developed, but never made it into production. You’ll get a glimpse in to the world of our research, development, and production process and get to see some really cool unreleased products along the way. This is the RIP Blog Series.
After a long and hectic 2013, the year has come to a close and we get to look back on some of the best blog posts we had last year. This year we sent people to E3, Quakecon, PAX, and GamesCom to check out innovation in the gaming space and talk to gamers directly at these large events. Our product and sales team endured countless trips to Taiwan, China, and Europe to make sure we made the best products we possibly could this upcoming year.
On top of these products and events, NZXT also hired a handful of new people, including myself, to handle marketing, customer service, and sales. By hiring us, this shows that NZXT is committed to making some of the most amazing computer hardware for builders, gamers, and enthusiasts alike in the coming year. Our newest case, the H440, is evidence of all the hard work that we’ve been putting into breaking the mold in 2013 and these posts highlight some of our favorite experiences along the way.
So without further ado, here are our best blog picks of 2013.
I’m a single, tech-minded individual in my 20s living alone in winter time, so naturally I’m mining crypto-currencies. I caught the bug just after Bitcoin shattered the $1,000 mark, asking around, I discovered one of my reviewer buddies had been making decent money off Litecoin with just a few cards. So I fired up Cudaminer on my GTX680 for about 30 seconds until I ditched that and opted for my HD6950 in my HTPC. The 6950 ultimately was three times faster at mining than my GTX680, and after seeing those speeds I was hooked.

With the expansion of Litecoin mining, some of us here at NZXT have already begun to research the implications that the Kraken G10 could have on cooling mining cards. The quick conclusions we’ve came to are an increase in performance, decrease in heat produced, and a big decrease in wattage used.

With tall waves tossing us to and from, me and my squad charge onward in our RCB attack boat. An attack helicopter strafes the boat twice and I decide not to test my luck with the third pass. As I storm the beach, taking out two enemy soldiers, I turn to see the RCB explode and see my squad sink to their watery grave. I continue towards the control point, only to see an enemy squad en route to the place I had dropped two of their teammates.
I hunker down behind a wall as the hurricane begins and wait for them to charge around the corner, hoping my MK11 will be enough to stop the three heavily armed soldiers.As I await my demise, my entire squad spawns on me tipping the scales back in my favor. We round the corner, catching the enemy squad off guard, and dispatch the enemy soldiers. My squad nabs the control point for our teams I watch my score rise.
While not as explosive as driving off a skyscraper with an ATV, the importance of teamwork creates plenty of those ‘Battlefield Moments’ that bring me back to Battlefield games time and time again.

Do you love to mod, build, craft or your own PC? Then pull out your tools to mod, carve or chop up an NZXT/Gaming/Geek Culture themed pumpkin!
I am overly fascinated with Dead space. I have taken the time to thoroughly beat each game on every level and find all the tools and schematics and hints in each game. I love how Visceral games created the series and have taken this character and made him the hero. So I had this idea rolling around in my head for some time and wanted to go at it in a certain direction. In the end this is what I created. I used our newly release Source 530 case as the foundation for the build. This case offers alot for the price and I think people can see that with this build.

I burst out of the top-most elevator onto the rooftop of the main building at the center of Battlefield 4’s Siege of Shanghai. Frantically, I look around and spot an enemy recon sitting parallel to me on the other roof, laying waste to my squad mates in the floor below me. Ten rounds later, I’ve dispatched the sniper and made way for my team to push over to the other side.
As I peek over the roof edge, I begin exchanging fire with a recently spawned enemy assault. It was just after we began this exchange, I heard a creak. Or as experienced beta players know it, a warning. The building began to pitch back and forth as I’m spraying wildly, trying to take the enemy out before I have to parachute to safety. We’re both refusing to give up and dive off, but it’s too late for both of us. We die as the building crumbles beneath our feet and pulls us into the depths of its concrete grave. This is Battlefield 4.
