5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

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

Pros: Great case, roomy but not massive, everything fits nicely. Fans are quiet and efficient. The tooless drive bays are easy and effective. The front panel was easy to connect and the cables are nicely wrapped

Cons: my 8 pin mother board power cable did not reach using the designed cable routing. A 5 dollar cable extender was an easy remedy. Also I had to remove the fan to connect the cable

Other Thoughts: If you can find a better case for under 40 bucks, you should buy it.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy this one

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

Pros: Can fit fans everywhere
Many rad options 3x120 (needs modding) in the top 2x120 in front (precut top as well) 1x120 bottom and back
Ample storage bays
Bottom mounted PSU
Comes with a nice fan (For under $50 this needs to be mentioned)
Painted inside with matching screws and it comes with more then enough
includes zip ties
Lots of cable management options

Cons: Compare this to everything in its price range you will find there is never going to be a con.

Other Thoughts: BUY THIS CASE!!! NZXT really hit a home-run for me with this one. No it doesn't have tool-less bays or 30 different colors. This does not come with a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter for SSDs (Don't care they come with a lot of drives anyway). I really like bottom mounted PSUs. The cable management doesn't have rubber grommets but the holes are not rough enough to cut wires. Comes with thumb screws on the panels and plenty of hardware to do whatever. All the hardware is black. Makes a really slick install. Personally I have 6 3.5 disks in this thing and for that reason I like not having tool-less bays (there are cut outs for tool-less I think you can buy them from NZXT). You can water cool this case; I mean really NZXT how much awesome can u get for $40-50. There are 0 complaints about this thing in 15 years of building all types of PCs I don't think I have ever come across a cheap case that preforms this well. BYE-BYE ALMOND BOX HELLO SOURCE 210!

Side Note: The case standoffs are hard to get in (due to paint) use a nut driver or pliers to turn them down nice and tight.

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

Pros: 1.Very, very good looking.
2. A mid amount of HeatSink space.
3.(opinion, just saying) All the frive bays you'll ever need.
4.Good cooling with the fan spots.

Cons: 1.Not alot of GPU space with a HDD, would gove 5 stars otherwise.

Other Thoughts: If you want a card over about 9.5 in., get the phantom instead. Otherwise, great case

4 out of 5 eggsNZXT Source 210 Elite (Black)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
