5 out of 5 eggsexcellent case

Pros: Amazing case, looks great, comes with very nice 120 and 140 mm fans. Fits my r9 270. Perfect fire a first build!

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT Source 210 Elite (Black)

Pros: - Professional Look
- Cheap(ish)
- USB 3.0
- Lots of HDD mounting space

Cons: - No included mounting of 2.5" drives (SSDs)
- Fan Noise

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very impressed with the performance and quality of this case for the price. It easily allowed for me to fit in my motherboard and components with room to spare. Very basic cable management options.

REASON FOR LOSS OF 1 STAR: Do not get me wrong, the included fans look nice and run quietly, however the top fan vibrates the top of the case. This generates a low frequency type humming, as if there is vibrating on the top of the case (which there is). I have tightened the screws pretty tight to see if that made a difference, which it did not. To temporarily solve the issue I have an old hard drive resting on the top of the case.

Great case for the price and looks professional and I would recommend it if you are looking for a non-flashy case to put your components in.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: I don't care too much for flashy computer cases so the simple black scheme of this case is great. There is plenty of room inside the case for mounting your components and the lack of sharp edges inside the case is a very nice touch.

Cons: The USB ports in the front of the case were installed upside down. It's not a big deal but it is a minor annoyance.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Clean Case

Pros: Looks great. Very easy to get set up. Lots of cooling options. One USB 2 and one USB 3 on the front panel. Mic and audio jacks on front panel as is the norm now. So far I'm very pleased with this case.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I dropped a few screws but was able to get them out with absolutely no problem, ever with my big hands. I'm loving the fact there is no window on this case. It's all business and that is what is most important to me.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good Case

Pros: I like the ease of installing and removing drives in the bays. No screws to deal with, just line up the plastic insert properly with the drive mounting holes and twist the knob. I haven't had any of plastic inserts break on me yet, but I was worried about that early on

Lots of fan mounting points

Cons: The side exhaust port only seems to help with airflow in the area that my GPU(video card) is in. With the motherboard/CPU combo(MSI 990XA-GD55 AM3+ / AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz) I am using I have experienced ongoing overheating issues during heavy load operations with the CPU and Northbridge getting to 70C+ before automatic shutdown. A major of my problem is that I have a slightly better than stock CPU fan.

But,

It may be something to consider depending on your needs, but there seem to be other cases available with a side exhaust directly over from where the CPU would be. With my set up, I just don't get enough airflow to the CPU/North bridge even though I've got all the fans I can have plugged in, and have tried different several configurations

I plan to invest in some liquid cooling to remedy current my problem.

Ill be sure my next case has a side fan port right next to the CPU to help with ventilation though

Other Thoughts: make sure your motherboard can support the front facing USB 3.0 port on the case if you want to utilize it

5 out of 5 eggsBreezy enclosure

Pros: It had been a while since I needed to purchase a separate PC tower. I guess a lot has changed... for the better. Lots of flexibility, easy access to everything.

Cons: This really doesn't have anything to do with the tower, but a few of the connections from the power supply were a little too short to allow for decent routing. I lengthened those wire harnesses a few inches, and all was good.

5 out of 5 eggsClean and nice

Pros: Great budget case. Easy cable routing, several drive bays, decent air flow. What more could you want from an inexpensive case like this?

Cons: Pretty bare bones, but you get great value for what you pay

4 out of 5 eggsSSD Mounting Holes Unusable

Pros: Great case. Looks good. Black interior. Lots of mounting areas for 3.5 and 5.25 devices. Good airflow design.

Cons: Bought 5 of these to fill an custom order for a client. Found the SSD mounting holes in the bottom of the case and they are unusable because the 3.5" mounting brackets are riveted over them. I think someone was drinking heavily when they placed the SSD mouting holes on this model. Other than that, the case is excellent.

Other Thoughts: ROTATE the SSD mounting holes by 90 degrees and this case would be stellar.

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT 210 Mid Tower

Pros: *Easy to use from the original build, to adding extra fans, memory, so on...
*After a year of everyday use, I have no issue at all with the build quality.
*Decent air flow set up for the price and style
*Price

Cons: *A little bland I guess, but once again for the price you can not complain, and the pictures clearly show the look of the case.
*Expansion bays are plastic, which I would expect but the pop out covers on the front honestly feel like they could easily be broken. Granted I have not broke any myself, but probably the only real negative I could think of on the build quality.

Other Thoughts: For the price, you get a well build case that has plenty of room for most builds. You could easily put 2 GPUs, an after market CPU heat sink, and it has more expansion bays than any normal person could ever need.

5 out of 5 eggsGood budget case

Pros: Cheap, Good quality, Adequate room for a case in its class, Nice finish, Decent cable management, Solid.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Had absolutely no problems fitting all of the hardware required for a now build in this case. ATX mobo, 4 sticks of ram without coolers, 430w corsair power supply, no video card, CD drive, 1 Hard drive. In the past i purchased a phantom case from NZXT and found the overall quality to be lackluster at best so was pleasantly surprised when this case came to me with functional 3.5" and 5.25" mounting systems, a good paint job, and a seemingly solid build.
