Checkout PCGamer’s case of the year: NZXT H700i article for more details.

More Purple Stuff!


Points:
2 – Read Pantone color of the year article.

2018 is already our year! Pantone announced the color of the year for 2018 and it’s Purple! Well, Ultra Violet 18-3838 to be specific but you get the point. #wediditfirst. Just saying. 😉

What does that mean exactly? We’ll let our friends over at Pantone explain it to you: “Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.” Thanks Pantone! We couldn’t have said it better. In fact, that pretty much sums up every year at NZXT. Can we get a #puckyes from all our fans?!

How Big of an NZXT Fan are You?

Now that you’ve completed the quiz, add up your points and let us know how you rank…

Point Chart:

120+ = You are either a super-psychotic, monstrous NZXT fan or a huge liar. Either way, we aren’t judging. Thanks for stalking us so intensely. We think?

80-119 = Congrats fam! You’re an extreme NZXT fan and wholeheartedly supported us throughout the year. You must have every case, including the purple editions even if you don’t have any components to install. Don’t worry, we have that problem too. You are not alone. For those of you who are closer to 119, be careful being around all that NZXT gear. Your skin might turn purple.

50-79 = You’re a big NZXT fan but you have control of your impulses. We respect that. You probably purchased a case and some accessories to complete your NZXT collection and stopped there because you have self-control unlike the others above. (Shhh, don’t tell them that we said that.) You’ve also attended some of our events and said hello from time to time on social. Some would call you normal but we still call you a big NZXT fan. Thanks for being there for us!

10-49 = Hey, no hard feelings. We are just going to assume that you are here because money is tight and you must be very selective with your new toys. We are also going to assume that you follow our social media pages and drool all over your phones and keyboards while you comment on how much you want our products. Are we right? We thought so. Now please wipe your phone screens and keyboards.

0-9 = What? Are we not good enough for you? You better be a new fan who’s discovered us late in the year. You didn’t even read the last 2 articles above to at least get the 4 points did you?! That’s it, look what you’ve done. Some of us in the office are crying now. You owe us doughnuts now.

Seriously, send us some donuts and we might forgive you:

NZXT, Inc.

C/O Mark
13164 E. Temple Ave
City of Industry CA

Thanks for Your Support!

Thanks to all our fans that made this year and the previous years so successful. We appreciate every comment, feedback, like, subscribe, post, recommendation and follow. All of these products and events in this blog post would mean nothing if it weren’t for our fans and we hope you continue to experience new moments with us all throughout the new year.

Our promise to you: We promise to never lose sight of our NZXT core values and we will continue to stay true to the PC gaming community right alongside our fellow PC gaming fans. After all, “We envision a world where the PC is the only platform for a deeper, more immersive gaming experience.”

That’s it! Let us know your score in the comments below and let’s ring in the new year.

Hello, 2018. Here we come!
