Excellent Case

NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Well made case, especially for the price point. Inside of the case is all black which adds to the more professional feel of the case. Bottom mounted PSU. Excellent cable management. 8 3.5" internal drive bays with available 2 120mm front intake fans is rare to find in a case in this price range. Great cooling potential. Included fan is a good quality NZXT fan.

Cons: Only came with 1 fan but I knew that when I bought it. This is being nit picky but with the amount of cable management this case offers I thought it would have included more than 2 zip ties.

Overall Review: I bought this case for a home server build and could not be happier. The build was a breeze with this case and the cable management was phenomenal. I cannot express how nice this cases cable management system is for how inexpensive it is. Luckily i have lots of spare zip ties. I installed 2 front 120mm fans to cool my HDDs and 2 top 140mm fans to help exhaust the heat more. It keeps all 4 HDD's very cool under 24/7 usage. If you are looking for an inexpensive but quality case i would highly recommend this case.

Great PSU

Pros: Price. PSU is modular. Has plenty of power for most any need. Has two 8pin CPU connectors for the high end boards.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Bought this on black Friday for my new build and it has worked wonderfully from day one. Running 2 GTX 470's in SLI and 5 HDD's without issue.

Great Case

Sunbeam Transformer IC-TR-US-BA-WOPSU Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very easy build using this case. The slides for the drive bays are wonderful; one of the better tool less designs I've used. Air flow is good and the case design looks very nice. The spare parts box that fits inside the case is nice. Lots of space for expansion.

Cons: The physical power button broke about 1 year in but that was easily replaced for ~$5. The top USB ports have stopped work. Also, not a big deal.

Overall Review: I bought this case about 2 1/2 years ago and it is still working great. Ive since upgraded my build and transferred this case to another build. Ive used two other cases with my personal build since this case and neither of them were as easy to use as this case. Overall i would recommend this case to anybody who is looking for a inexpensive full tower case.
