2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price, just the price. thumb screws on side panels.

Cons: Where do I start? I guess it's a "you get what you pay for, if your lucky". 1) no grommets for wiring pass thru. 2) not one filter. 3) why put a place for 2 fans in front but only have a small slit that just out lines the fan frames? 4) to skinny for after market heat sink. 5) can barely fit a fan on top of case do to mobo sitting so high. 6) no quick lock/release anything.

Other Thoughts: If this is your first case... keep looking. the money saved isn't worth the trouble it takes to install a system. You can get so many extra features for just a few dollars more. Don't settle for less.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer
We greatly appreciate the feedback on our s210 case what we can say is that is that it was meant to be used a low budge gaming rig. A lot of features were sacrificed to save money for the average user if they needed a case for a low price. We greatly appreciate your support if you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to contact us directly at 1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

4 out of 5 eggsNice for the price

Pros: Clean and simple black. plenty of Fan mounts (only comes with one 120mm btw). bottom mounted PSU, and cable routing features. room for most 3rd party heatsink/fans and video cards. all black, inside and out. screws and stand off all black.

Cons: only comes with one 120mm case fan (rear exhaust) but has mounts for 5 in total. a intake fan mounted behind the front panel/bezel shold have been installed.

Other Thoughts: read some reviews listing HDD mounting. I too prefer tool-less and mounts to align the HDD's side to front so they can be removed easily and Hot - Swapped without issue, but i knew this case did not have this design... look at the pics. its right there. its also not a bad case for modder's on a budget. all in all a great deal for under 30 dollars, and mine arrived in great condition. i just had to install a couple more fans to keep everything cool.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple, easy case.

Pros: In about 15 years of building, this has to be the best bang-for-buck budget case I've ever built on.

Cons: I've sat here combing over this case for a good 15 minutes now, trying to remember if I had any troubles at all when I first built the rig 3 months ago, and I honestly can't even nit-pick at it.

Other Thoughts: I drilled out a few pop-rivets (1/8" bit, IIRC) and removed the lower 3.5" drive structure to shoe-horn a heater core vertically in there with two 120mm fans pushing through it front-to-rear. The SSD OS drive is mounted to a piece of .020" thick .25" angle aluminum attached to two unused mobo standoff mount holes behind the mobo tray. With an IDE optical drive, dual 5.25" bayres and some patience running the wires/tubing, this has to be the cleanest, easiest rig I've built to date, and I credit that all to the case design.

Running an old x6800 in a Striker Extreme with two GTX285s, all on the same loop, my max temps are limited by thermal interfaces from die to water. Even though my radiator is dumping hot air into the case, the case stays cool internally from exhaust fans in the ample fan mounting locations.

Kudos NZXT. I've built on one of their Whisper chassis a few years ago, and loved that one, too (though the water loops were nightmares thanks to having 8 water blocks in that build...my fault, not theirs). I think I'm going to look at NZXT cases first from now on.

4 out of 5 eggsPerfect case for a budget build

Pros: 1.This case has cable management features that are not available in other cases at this price

2. Has much better airflow than a budget micro ATX case and has a cheaper price tag than most of them.

3. This case is compatible with most motherboards and will still leave a bit of space for expansion.

Cons: 1. Would be nice to see more fans included with this case

2. Cable management is better than other cases at this price but I would have liked to see more space behind the motherboard tray

3. The hard drives are not setup in the most efficient way possible being that they are facing the motherboard rather than facing the side panels

4. Why is there no 2.5 inch hard drive bays, or at least adapters this feature would have made this case so much nicer

Other Thoughts: Overall I would recommend this case to people who are on a tight budget and still need a case that will fit their components, in my opinion if this case is $40 or less you will not find a much better option.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap yet Sleek

Pros: Very affordable. I bought it refurbished and to be honest I don't know what they had to refurbish. It really just looks like a return that couldn't be put back on the retail shelf.

Cons: It is a low budget case so cable management isn't great and its not huge, don't expect to get 2 huge graphics cards to fit well depending on the cards.

4 out of 5 eggs210 review

Pros: Lots of fan locations. Cooling is never an issue. Design features all make sense and are useable. Black paint inside and out. The case was in pretty good shape -- frame a little warped at the power supply area and some munch marks were the previous owner fitted some items and them removed them. But the case was NOT dented or scratched on the outside. Apparently the person 1/2 built the case and then returned it. Screws and other hardware included. Paint is pretty durable - does not scratch without a serious tool slip.

Cons: No instructions included. Only one fan (sounds like others got 2 fans). Packaging a little beat up inside and out -- so the box was used several times? Box claimed to be a white case, but the case was black. Some internal scratches but no major chassis dents or warped parts. Plastic feet -- I hate. No filters on the power supply and bottom fan inlets. Odd because the case has tabs for filters. I called NZXT and they said there are NO filters -- why put a tab to hold them?

Other Thoughts: It is a good case for what it is -- I paid the same for my refurb as I did with for a new 210 with a rebate. I knew the rebate takes about 6 months to receive so I opted for a refurb -- did not want to wait for the rebate. If you do not mind some minor blemishes this is a good case. Functionality is good. However, other vendors ONLY send out blemish free refurbs -- so to find blemishes is not satisfying for me. If the price had been 20 dollars I might overlook the blemishes. I can live with it -- I will not buy another NZXT refurb unless the price gets silly cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Beginner's Case

Pros: Great, spacious case. Mine came with 2 fans, versus the one fan shown/mentioned in the description, and was mark-free. Taking advantage of the case's cable management allows for a lot less clutter, making it look very clean with the black-painted interior. My Corsair AX650 with bright green sleeved power cables looks simply amazing with my ECS A990FXM-A motherboard and green Cougar 12CM fans.

Cons: When adding 5 or more fans plus two for the CPU (CM Hyper 212 Evo) and a fan controller, things might start getting messy. Gets somewhat audible if all fans are running at the same time.

Other Thoughts: This is my fourth Source 200 series case from NZXT (210, 210 w/ windows, 210 Elite and 220) and I am loving all of them. I would definitely recommend these cases.

5 out of 5 eggsFor $30 bones, this thing is great.

Pros: The referb:
For the money, this is the best case I've ever used. Picked up a referb for $30 bucks. Cosmetically, it was pretty good as far as referb items go. Some dust/dirt on 1 of the fans. Alcohol wipe took care of that. Maybe minor blemishes inside and 1 of the screws was silver instead of black.

The case:
Let me first say that I've built a lot of systems in cases that made me question humanity. I've used some really great ones and some that deserved to be dragged out into the street and run over. With a bulldozer. That had snow chains on its wheels. And then set on fire in front of the case designer's house just to prove a point. /Rant* This case doesn't fit into that category. I really figured it would @ 30 bucks but I gotta hand it to NZXT. They really know how to make a budget case a real treat to build in. 2 Front intake fan mount points, 2 top 140/120mm mount points, Side mount point for the same, rear exhaust included. Bottom 140/120 mount point. If you're using air, this case will more than move some serious air if you load it up right. Aesthetically, it has a beautiful brushed aluminum finish (its plastic, but it looks like it could have been aluminum). There is a soft white light behind the power button that lites up the rim real nice. And the hdd activity light is also white. Lots of hard drive bays. Can accommodate a sli/xfire setup. Has room for a beefy cooler (fits a hyper 212 like a boss) and despite its lite weight, the frame feels really solid. Cable management is a snap with this thing as it has management holes in the important places AND it has a quarter of a million tie-down spots behind the mobo. Okay that may be a slight exaggeration but in all fairness, it really is kinda close. Easily 20-25+ I had enough tiedown points to not only manage all the pc cables + the extras, I also had leftover for a fan controller, 8 fans, 4hdd's, an SDD, and a gfx card. And all the cables were ghost. Lets see your random budget case do that! Bottom mounted PSU. Grommet holes (you'd hafta punch those out yourself) for a water cooling setup. Really and truly its actually pretty freakin good for 30 quid.

Cons: There are a few things to gripe about in this case. First off, the hard drive bays. Now, it not being tooless. Truthfully, I would get over that. I mean if you swap out HDD's on the regular then look elsewhere. But if you're a set it and forget it kinda guy then this'll do the trick. My main gripe about the HDD bay is that it can't be rotated 90 degrees. The data/power cables on your sata drives are going to stick out the back and that makes cable management annoying. I picked up a silverstone 4 in 1 Sata power cable that took care of most of it but the data still was kinda on the ugly side. Also, if you want all your bays filled w/ HDD's you're gonna hafta skimp a lil on the GFX card. Realistically, there's no way your fitting your TITAN or your R9 in a case this size w/ all those drives in it. Also a SSD mounting slot was nowhere to be found. For a second I thought I could maybe fenangle something on the bottom but it didn't match the holes. You're going to need a 2.5-3.5 adapter for that. The intake fans on the front also are a very close fit to those HDD's. No 38mm deltas for you. 120's fit ok just be aware that the close proximity may yield some extra noise depending on your fans. Also, mounting 140mm fans @ the top may interfere w/ your motherboard and/or cooler depending on your model. Keep an eye out on it. You could actually mount the fans outside the case but that would look weird and would require removing the 3-pin connectors and reattaching them after threading your fan cables back into the case. Pretty janky but if you had to, it would work. The front panel also doesn't come off w/o taking the mobo connectors with it so be careful and do that first if you need to.

Other Thoughts: This case would be a fantastic mod case if you have the tools to change just a few things (HDD bay would be the biggest change needed). I mean literally if you ripped that thing out and put in your own acrylic drive cage with the drives rotated 90degrees then this thing would be hands down awesome. Also, noise might be a factor if you don't have a fan controller. Had some kaze's in my junk box and lemme tell you, they made this thing sound like a vacuum cleaner. Swapped em out for my Cougar vortexes and the difference was night and day. Rubber mount washer dohickeys FTW! I might cut a hole in the side panel and mount an acrylic plate to it. On the outside of course since mounting it on the inside would maybe make the hyper 212 not fit. Not sure if I want to take it that far, but it IS a possibility. The included NZXT fan is definitely going in the junk box though. Its not incredibly loud but it is louder than what I want it to be. However if you are going for the obnoxious look, 2 words: White LEDs. Xigmatek crystal series fans look glorious in this thing. Lites up the whole interior which is painted black and makes the motherboard really pop if you have a colorful one (gigabyte ultradurable 2 from back in the day).
