A very nice case for the money 07/26/2013
This review is from: NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black SECC Steel, ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
The price is very reasonable for a budget build. Cable management is nice and it's quite roomy for such a small case. The build i put together for someone with a 760 Windforce still has about 2.5 more inches of clearance. That's impressive given the price and size of the case. It also looks very stylish in my opinion. The aluminum is of better quality than you'd fine in normal budget cases, as well as the brush finish.
All that said i do have some complaints. First this case will not fit a Hyper 212 EVO the side panel presses against the copper protrusions and it will bend the side panel some. For those that like to run their PC with no panel this isn't a problem though.
My second complaint is lack of fans. I realize it's a budget minded case and i'm not expecting there to be an overbearing amount of features. But is it too much to include an intake fan? Hell raise the price to 50$ if need be an intake fan is a must IMO.
Again just if anyone is wonder the Hyper 212 will not fit with the side panel closed. Despite the little thing being surprisingly roomy in length, it's width is somewhat restrictive. It's still a very nice and professional looking case for the money.
