NZXT Source 530 CA-SO530-M1 Matte Black Steel / Plastic / Mesh ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Solid construction, tons of space, lots of cable management tie downs-space-etc., i/o panel led, fan mounts galore, liquid cooling options everywhere, removable dust covers, tool-less bays and much more.

Cons: As of now, the only real con to this case that I can find is that there is almost to much open vents on the exterior. If you plan on installing 2-3 radiators and/or upwards of 6 120mm fans then there is a lot of open grates on this case. This could be a concern for airflow if you don't install enough fans. I wish that there would have been some sort of screen or mesh that was removable over all these grates so you don;t have to install so many fans/radiators.

Although this is in the cons, it could be considered a pro as well, depending on your needs

Other Thoughts: For the price, you will find it very hard to find a case that has as many features as this case.

In the cons section, I said that there are to many open grates. I have a box of carbon mesh air filters that I can cut to length, which I ended up installing in the case to cover some of these open grates. Without this, or without capping them off in another way, you are left with all the openings almost negating the effects of your fans. Covering them until you install more fans/radiators will help improve the in/out flow of air for the case tremendously and allow you to route the air the way you want more efficiently.

EVGA 02G-P4-2678-KR GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Awesome looking. Super fast and super smooth when it worked.

Cons: Basically DOA. The card worked for all of about 10mins before it crashed the driver and artifacted even my desktop. I switched drivers, re-installed my OS and even switched out my HDD to no avail. Also, the packaging is something to be desired. For a card valued over four hundred dollars this card should have been packaged a lot better IMO.

Other Thoughts: After giving a terrible review, which never showed up here Newegg, I have added a star because Newegg was kind enough to send me a free return shipping label. RMA sucks though and I'm still upset that my card was DOA. If you look at the reviews on just Newegg, the DOA status of this card is well over 10% when looking at only the reviews submitted. That is unacceptable in this day and age and especially for a company like EVGA. If this is a FTW edition, how did so many make it out the door that are broken? I thought that these editions were binned out because they are the best performing chips they have? I'm really disappointed and can only hope that the replacement card works. Once I receive a working card I will change my review status.

Pros: Its nice looking and I had high hopes.

Cons: DOA and I HAVE to pay the return shipping costs, which will not be refunded to me. So I spend over $400 on one purchase and Newegg cant refund me the shipping costs? I have spent thousands in their store. I get that it happens, but thats why I bought the FTW, I thought these cards were tested well. I guess not. Thoroughly disappointed.

Other Thoughts: I love Newegg to death. I will still shop here but I have never been so excited for a new GPU as this one, then to get a DOA card is just a real let down. As long as I get a good card sent to me I will change my review.
