5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, Superior Airflow~

Pros: Where to begin...
This case model is from 2005 and is still has Style. Included fans seem weak but do a good job of cooling my system. There is an opening on the bottom with space for an additional -intake- fan (and I suggest installing one there). Once I installed the additional fan aimed directly at my GPU Temps fell by at least 5c all around.

Convenient temperature gauge located top front of case.

Swing door secures shut with magnet - pretty strong.

Perfect size for my components, ordered everything from newegg, and I am very pleased.

Cons: Sounds like Airplane when booting up.

Comes with 4 fans, but I have become obsessed with keeping my system at low temps so I installed two additional ones!!! lol

Small price to pay. You can't hear the system anyways with music headphones or speakers on which I have on at all times :)

I also installed a mini fan where floppy drive bay is pointed at my CPU because my Huge GPU blocks airflow from bottom blow hole.

Other Thoughts: This is my first PC build, and I assembled everything myself with no problem. Computers are a breeze ~ to set up if all components function properly.

With proper cable management and and 2 additional fans my system idles at: CPU - 30, GPU - 28, HDD - 28.

Running Starcraft 2 with ultra graphics setting my system heats up to: CPU - 40, GPU - 32~34, HDD - 32
All on stock settings.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect

Pros: Lots of room.
Looks great.

Cons: Be careful with the plastic.
The top hinge of the door broke off after a year, but it stays together by the magnets.
I'd take a drill and rig it back myself, but I'm afraid of recking it further.

Other Thoughts: I've had this case for 3+ years. I've replaced every component in this system several times, but always kept the case.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Temperature display on top and in front, plenty of fans for the non-gaming PC, awesome lighting, convenient hardware moutning. Love the case!

Cons: Fingerprints are easy to leave on the top and sides.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a carrying harness??? I think this tower is too big for something to carry around.

4 out of 5 eggsthis case is like a beautiful person

Pros: it is very shiny

Cons: but it expects you to know exactly how it wants to be treated and to act accordingly

Other Thoughts: manual totally sucked. very few pictures and confusing written instructions. i pried off 3 of the rear slot plates with a flathead screwdriver like they were tuna can tops before i figured out how the "screwless" fastener worked.
i took computer science in college but i don't assemble rigs for a living. it's pretty tough to follow instructions when there aren't any.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case, excellent support

Pros: Roomy, easy to work with, quiet, excellent support (see below). Air filter has kept the system significantly more free of dust than other systems in the same location.
Purchased based on other reviews, and still agree with them.

Cons: Lights too bright. Front USB connector at bottom is inconvenient. Temperature sensors & front display of marginal use.

Other Thoughts: I saw the 1 year warranty and put this on a credit card that added a year. Two years and two weeks after purchase, the top fan and front display failed. I emailed NZXT support expecting a purchase price for replacement parts - instead, they just sent the parts as if under warranty. It's all working now. YMMV.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat box, better customer svc

Pros: Excellent air flow, fan mount points, cable paths, drive mounts. Exceptional ground clearance ensures air flow should I ever want to place on carpeted floor. I have four systems on that shelf of wire rack - this case is the only one that I don't worry about overheating if I'm late turning A/C on (q6600, two graphics cards, 8 GB mem in it, too).

Cons: Rear fan a little flaky; noisy on startup. That is a one-off, though - luck of the draw pull from fan manufacturer. After a year, the fan still works with the exception of startup noise which clears in about five minutes (although writing this review reminds me to order another one.)

Other Thoughts: Arrived with broken hinge pin on door. Email NZXT, couple days later, new door arrives complete with e-guts so I didn't have to mess with transferring lights/switches/etc. Didn't even have to return broken door! I about fell over in pleased shock. Door issue was likely shipping damage; I would buy this case again in a flash.

3 out of 5 eggsOK Case

Pros: Wonderful design

Cons: Not as durable as one would hope given the price

Other Thoughts: I've owned this case for several years now and while I'm happy with the case, there are several problems that I've encountered. The case is a dust collector, the front panel is easily breakable when taken off, and the plastic material feels rather cheap given the price of the case.

Would I buy it again? Probably not.

3 out of 5 eggsImpressive deign, but cheaply made

Pros: Cool looking, spacious, well designed, I like that both side panels come off easily, the fans are quiet, and the air filters keep the inside clean.

Cons: Front panel audio and USB ports failed after a year, the case is very flimsy, super thin metal that bends if you look at it too hard, and this case takes up a lot of extra space due to the raised feet on the bottom and the extra extensions on the top for the LCD display.

Other Thoughts: Overall, an impressive looking case with a good design that is made very cheaply. Also, the blue LED lighting is VERY bright, especially the disk activity LED on the front, which can be annoying.

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT LEXA-NP

Pros: Amazing looking case, this case turns heads. The front has almost a clean mirror look. Vents on side an front intake a great amount of air.

Cons: Umm alright, front light is extraordinarily bright, I have a dark room and its like a blue strobe light in my room reflecting off the mirror front. Front fan is hard to clean when it gets dusty. The temp. gauges on top are very inaccurate, off by almost 8degress on all sensors. Also very hard to see temp. through the faded black top.

Other Thoughts: I replaced all fans with higher CFM rate fans, this may just be me, with fans I want airflow the fans supplied are very low speed an push 15-34CFM mine supplys 80CFM on a fan controller an is as loud as stock fans. ^^ Any who hope this helps!

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT LEXA

Pros: Looks nice and has lots of room for mid case. Good air flow and has good fan options. Screwless drive mounts are nice.

Cons: When I received the case the front temp display was DOA. I RMA'ed and got another one from NZXT with no problem but just last week it went out again. Also the front door locks in place using magnets which came loose and pulled out the day I got it.

Other Thoughts: Good case over all.
