NZXT going out of business. I mean oops, NZXT is not going out of business. We’re experiencing technical difficulties…

Tonight subscribers to the NZXT corporate newsletter received a sad note from NZXT co-founder Johnny Hou:

Dear fans, friends, and followers of NZXT

NZXT was established in Los Angeles, California in 2004. Since then, we have produced many revolutionary and exciting products, from Cases to fan controllers. Unfortunately, the current state of the economy has taken a toll on our business, we are now facing the same financial hardships that many of our competitors have also faced. We would like to thank all who supported us throughout the years, purchased our products, and gave us feedback. We value your opinions and business. Our support contact information will continue to be available in order to provide warranty services, however, once current inventories are depleted, no new products will be produced. In leiu of this annoucement, the next ten people to purchase an NZXT Khaos case will receive a Sentry LXE at no cost.

Thank You,
Johnny Hou

This is very sad news, as NZXT has been an Icrontic favorite for the last few years. We’ve reviewed many of their products and are terrib….. wait… what’s that..?

This just in….

Dear NZXT Customers,

We are writing to notify that the NZXT Website is currently experiencing technical difficulties and will soon be accessible. Please disregard the last newsletter sent. NZXT is not going out of business, in fact NZXT is doing exceptionally well. We apologize for any inconveniences. Thank you for your patience!

Best Regards,

Victoria Chiang
NZXT Marketing Manager

Go back to your beds, everything’s okay here. Apparently the “pre-drafted out-of-business letter” key is right next to the “publish press release”  key on the new NZXT keyboard.

File this one under “oopsie!”

UPDATE: NZXT responds to say that it was a malicious attack on their website. Story here.

    Bandrik Wait, I just bought ten NZXT Khaos cases the moment the original story hit... does that mean I won't get my free Sentry LXEs anymore?

    BuddyJ I'd hate to see NZXT go away. They're good people with cool products.

    pragtastic The fact that letter even exists does not bode very well. Who drafts that sort of thing on a whim?

    spin498 Agree with Zuntar, hack or hoax, if NZXT doesn't claim one or t'other the damage has been done.
