5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with this case

Pros: -Ample space
-Lots of 3.5" slots
-5 120mm fan slots
-Nice window
-Plenty of room for cable management
-Easy to take apart and put back together

Cons: -No Intake filters

Other Thoughts: I know for a $45 case, I shouldn't expect the world. That said, this case has exceeded expectations. I would recommend getting some filters to cover your intakes. There's a lot of airflow in this case, so dust will be an issue.

Also, the hard drive cage is riveted in place. It may lead to issues fitting extremely long graphics cards. Make sure to measure, and do your research before trying to cram a 12" or 13" card in there.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible product! DO NOT BUY! I REPEAT NEVER BUY!

Pros: NONE!

Cons: It will never ever! For rest of your life it will never let you open the PCIE backplate. Why? Because I don't know why the manufactor of this case glued the screw!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, Valued NZXT Customer

We deeply apologize for the experience with your case, as the screws for the PCI-E covers should come off with ease. With the right tool a Philips screw driver should be able to take off the screws as we do not apply glue to screws themselves. None the less we can assist with a parts replacement or technical support for the case. If you would please visit our website at, Once there you would be able to submit a request or submit any questions you might have we do have a contact number which is +1-800-228-9395.

Kind regards,
NZXT Support.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Simple Case for the Price

Pros: * Super simple cable management
* Clean design
* Nice looks

Cons: I wish the bottom half of the case where the power supply and HDD rack is was covered/seperated like other NZXT cases. It would make this case that much more appealing.

Other Thoughts: Great budget case!

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed!

Pros: 1. Price & Quality: The quality of this case far surpasses that of which you pay. Such a great deal!
2. Size: I was hesitant at first for settling for a mid-tower atx. But I could not pass up the price. I was worried even after my purchase because I have big hands. But this case has plenty of elbow room!
3. NZXT 120mm stock fan: I had planned on buying a 120 mm fan to replace it, but the quality of the stock fan is very impressive. Guess that's a perk of buying a case from a great cooling fan company.
4. Interchangable Fan options: Top can fit 2- 120s or 2-140. The stock 120 fan can be replaced with a 92.
5. Side Panel Window- Many side panel window have a cheap foggy look, This thing is crystal clear and looks great!
6. 2.5 drive at bottom of case/drive bay.
7. 2 year warranty

Cons: 1. Front Panel: The front panel is a bit flemzy. The price cut had to be made somewhere, it's unfortunate that it was made on an area that is removed increasing the chances of it breaking.
2. No front panel USB 3.0- This isn't that big of a deal because I plan on using one of the three 5.25 drive bays as a microsd/usb 3.0.
3. Video Card Size:9.06" (230mm) With Drive Cages 12.99" (330mm) Without Drive Cages. I like my drive cage, and finding a Geo force 760+ or a r9+ under 9" is challenging. They are out there, but not many.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a simple case that looks great and is worth every penny get this. Save time and quit browsing cases, this is the one you want. I would even say most full tower enthusiast could find comfort with the size, especially for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT BUDGET CASE!!

Pros: This case to start out is a simple yet beautiful case. The window on it is very large and the glass is very clear. The cable management was very decent plenty of routing holes and room.

Cons: My biggest con with this case was the lack of grommets in the cable routing holes. Also, I did not care for the drives facing frontward on this case because it lends itself to bad cable management. My only other con is this case only comes with one rear exhaust fan.

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT Source 210 S210-001 with window

Pros: Cheap (when on sale).
cable management is decent for the price point.
lots of space for extra fans and drives.
The window in the side panel is pretty cool, its ABS so nothing too special.

Cons: The steel used in the case construction is a bit flimsy but I found that it stiffened up after it was fully assembled.
The front i/o is a bit on the cheap side, the headphone and mic jacks feel cheap but the USB connectors seem fine other than they are upside down.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a cheap case and that's what I bought and I'm very happy with my decision.
Based on how many hard drives you can put in this thing I'd recommend this to someone building a server/NAS.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: It's a bottom mount PSU which I like. My Sabertooth 990fx fits in nicely and all my components do as well minus my CPU cooler. Seems to be have good ventilation and I love the basic design to it.

Cons: This isn't worthy of taking a star off for buy my Cooler Master 212 evo doesn't entirely fit in this case. I had to drill holes in the plastic window of the side panel because the copper stick out to far, making it unable to close the side panel. But that's not the case's fault! Just so you know if you are planning on using a 212 evo with this case.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Great Source 210

Pros: Good Value
Black Interior
Cable management holes
CPU cooler cut out
Tons of fan mounts

Cons: -Thin metal (acceptable for the price)
-3.5" bay slots face front and back of the case instead of side of the case
-No toolless mounting options for HDD. (this was not the case with previouse source 210s)
-Limited AIO water cooler mounting options

Other Thoughts: I've done builds with nearly every model of the source 210. This was my first experience with the side window version. I am satisfied. The source 210 is hard to beat at less than $50. I caught this one on sale for $33, what a steal!

I noted that one review mentioned that you cannot use an AIO water cooling solution. I found this to be partially untrue. I was able to install an H60 on the rear fan mount in a push pull configuration. The side door doesn't quite close perfectly with this setup though. The heat sink extends just millimeters outside the case. You can still get the side panel on and secured with screws however and you can't even tell there is any kind of issue.

Unfortunately you cannot mount an h60 or similar to the top fan mounts as there is not enough clearance between the rad and the motherboard.
