Pros: Price, cool look, case fans slots, bottom mounted PSU, thumb screws, rails for 3.5" internal bays, black interior, space for longer video cards.

Cons: Mid-tower, no side window, no exposed 3.5"/2.5" slot/bracket, tight space for cable management and to install my H-50 rad+fan.

Awesome entry level chassis that offer some of the premium level features as listed in the Pros above.

The price is great for me after MIR. Being $10 CAD. thumb.gif

The design could have been a bit better here and there... but I guess what can you ask from a chassis been sold that cheap.

I like the way they have 6 fans slots (1 in the front, 2 on the side, 2 on the top, and 1 at the back) thumb.gif

The rear fan slot could have been made half an inch lower so the rad and fan(s) of cpu coolers like the H-50 and alike could be fitted in comfortably. teaching.gif

The 3.5" cage is positioned for easy access from the sides... that also made space to install longer video card(s).

Most of the the Cons I've listed above is expected from most of the mid size tower (except the Cooler Master HAF 912 - Great interior space)

With the absence of exposed 3.5" bay, I finally end up spending another $20 mad.gif for a Silver Stone converter bay/bracket... (this bracket is really handy/useful) too bad I can't fully utilize it as I have 3 optical drives occupying the rest of the exposed 5.25" bays.

Lastly, tight space for cable management and no side window (you can still "peep" in from the side of the side fans slot) are minuses, but what do I expect? tongue.gif

One rant is that NZXT didn't respond to the e-mail I've sent them... poor customer service? thinking.gif

Great bargain buy nevertheless! biggrin.gif

P.S.: Check out the [Official] NZXT Classic series Club!!!
