Is this NZXT Lexa S a good case? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I hated my Lexa S. But that was probably mainly because I didn't have a modular power supply, it made my life hell. But yeah, the space behind the motherboard is pretty packed.

The stock fans are quiet which is nice, but they do not move a lot of air. I replaced the one in the front for a higher flow one and stuck a couple of decent 140mm in the top.

With the MSI 460 Hawk and overclocking I was able to keep it cooler with the side panel fan as exhaust.

The fans are NZXT 120mm. They spin at 1300RPM Max.. That's why some ppl say they don't push a lot of air... but for 1300PRM they are very good. And they are pretty much soundless.

I see, thanks.

I love my Lexa S! The space behind the mobo is not huge but i managed to fit fairly large cables. I am also packing two gtx 480 and a bunch of HDD and SSD and everything fits fine. If you really need more space than this then you should probably go for a full case.

The fans are very silent, the only loud thing in my rig is are the GPUs.

NZXT will also replace any noisy fan for free if you are within warranty and ship it to you.

I would also suggest to get a modular power supply because otherwise there isnt that much space to keep the cables hanging.

Overall I recommend it!
