BUILD

The LZX-8 can support upto Intel 12600K & RTX 3060 Ti , however we opted for more conservative approach for our build. Thanks to Lazer3D who kindly provided the LZX-8 to review and our fantastic sponsors: QuietPC for providing the CPU & GPU.

THERMAL BENCHMARKS




CONCLUSION

We’d recommend going with either matte black or matte grey panels vs clear smoked acrylic as we did for our review. The matte panels feel better in terms of quality and give the case a better overall look after testing both panel types. The matte panels are also more resistant to fingerprints and scratches.
