5 out of 5 eggsSimply Good.

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: Its simple,
Does the job of providing a simple yet different design along with as many options as it could actually have. I love the fact that they added cable management options + Liquid cooling cutouts w/ plastic holes. I like how many fans i can actually have here.

Cons: I don't really like that you have to have the HDDs facing the front of the front of the chasis. it would be better if the HDD's front would be facing the side panel instead so better cable management would bw implemented.
Also there ia this little hole on top of where you put your mobo. that hole is a bit too small to pass the 8pin/4pin CPU power connector from the back of the mobo to the front. but with a bit pf elaboration from your trusty friend you can manage to do it and it will pay off.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks Nice

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: Neat looking, quiet, easy to assemble in. Perfect size for my requirements.

Cons: One of the rear thumb screws was extremely tight. When it came out it nearly stripped the screw hole. That screw is not useable because it will not screw all the way in. I guess that is minor.

Other Thoughts: I needed a case with better cooling than I had. I didn't want to spend a lot and this one was on sale. I haven't purchased a case in ten years. When looking through the reviews, I saw that the cases being thin was mentioned often. If they come thinner than this one I would not want them. I guess that is to keep the price down. I believe I would still buy this case. It's probably as good as any in this price range. Also I like the white and black color scheme and it's like a breath of fresh air, something different. I would recommend to others.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for smaller builds.

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: Looks beautiful, lightweight, USB 3.0 port on the front. Comes with extra cable ties. All around great case. Nice build quality too. Room in back of case for cable management. The locking system for the drive bays is very nice.

Cons: While there is room in the back to rout cables, the case is too small to do any work inside. Putting in a MicroATX board with a hard drive and a large video card (Radeon R9 290 Gigabyte Windforce) leaves no room to route cables and it's hard to get through unless you have small fingers. There is also no place to mount an SSD and as such I had to duct-tape it to the optical drive bay as a last resort since there was no other space at all where I could put it securely and it came with no brackets. Also, the cable for the rear system fan was short and wouldn't reach the motherboard, unlike the cable for the top exhaust fan and as such had to be plugged into a Molex power cable rather than into the MoBo for control.

Other Thoughts: Great value. Love the case and it looks great in my room.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: Good price. Lots of screws. It's white. And it doesn't look like a space ship to hunt aliens, like many other cases over there.
Plus, it has silent 2 fans and availability to add more fans to keep it breezy.

Cons: The placement of audio output is not perfect. The cord of my headphones abstracts DVD-RW.
And USB ports are upside down for some reason.

4 out of 5 eggsProud to show it off

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: I have not built a system in years. I remember the old days of punch outs and bloody hands. Everything on this case is painted with a strong coating. The bays have quick fastener less clips. Great since I am indecisive. Currently shopping for another just to refresh an older system.

Cons: There is no mounting for a Solid State Drive. Had rig something up on the fly. I blame the bundle rather than the manufacturer. I am sure NZXT has a solution already available. It just was not chosen.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: Good air flow. No flashy lights. Simple. The fans that come with it are quiet enough for me. Lots of room for internal 3.5" drives and additional fans.

Cons: No major cons. Minor ones such as the USB and Audio ports being above the DVDs is annoying. No 3.5" external bays but I knew what I was buying and okay with it.

Other Thoughts: For the price I would recommend this.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice!

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: Looks great, very sturdy. There are a lot of drive bays, but still enough space for my gtx 660 and cable management. I like the simplicity, and knowing it came from a reputable manufacturer. I love everything NZXT makes. I feel like I got a lot more than the price suggested.

Cons: none

3 out of 5 eggsFront USB port is spotty

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: - Nice design
- Good cooling
- Solid, quality construction

Cons: - Front USB 2.0 port is spotty, possibly defective. USB plugs don't really sit right in the port and the slightest movement of anything plugged into the port will disconnect the connected device.

Other Thoughts: If the USB 2.0 port wasn't messed up that way this would be a 5-star case.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic case

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: Second Source 210 I've bought. The plan was to build a fairly small, QUIET, powerful, clean looking machine. This case succeeds in its part. The included fans are NO louder than the Cougar fans I had bought to bring the possible noise level down, but they do feel flimsier. I squeezed an H80i cooler in here along with a pair of GTX 760s. The video cards use the stock cooler design, NOT the ACX version, as those tend to blow the heat around inside the case instead of pushing it out the rear. At the price, there are a lot of expensive-case decisions made here. ZERO sharp edges, cleanly painted exterior AND interior, cable routing behind the motherboard, tool-less drive mounts. At the price, it's a fantastic case.

Cons: Would have liked an extra quarter inch behind the motherboard plate for cable routing, it's a TIGHT squeeze. Front USB ports are upside down, this seems to be a trademark thing with NZXT though. Just like Kriss Kross, it's not cool. The front panel itself may appear to be askew, and it is...this is not a defect, it's by design. Don't worry, your dvd/blu-ray drive will line up perfectly. Apparently NZXT couldn't resist doing *something* quirky with the design.
I'd like to see SSD mounts in the next version.

Other Thoughts: I bought a non-elite one of these initially, and for my more recent build, got the Elite. The extras are definitely worth the extra couple bucks. There is NO difference in build materials or quality between the two, but the Elite comes with fans, tool-less drive mounts, and an upside-down usb3 front panel port.

4 out of 5 eggsKnow What You're Doing!

This review is from: NZXT Source 210 Elite White Steel with painted interior ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ Black Front Trim

Pros: 1. Affordable
2. Full ATX size
3. two included fans that are nearly silent

Cons: 1. Instructions - if this is your first build, make are you know how the standoffs work. Following the instructions, which have very small and unclear graphics I used the standoffs as screws to bolt the motherboard right to the case, which caused the case to short the Mobo. Once I figured out how the standoffs go in between the MoBo and the case I was able to fix it and fortunately no permanent damage was done.
2. The wiring for the fans is buried to remain hidden and assist with cable management, but it will be very difficult to duplicate this with additional fans.
3. The front panel could use more connectivity.

Other Thoughts: For the price, you can't beat it. We'll see how that rebate works out, though.
