NZXT M59 or NZXT Source 210 Elite ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Building a budget gaming PC for my son. NZXT has the 20% deal right now on several case. So both would be about $42-43 after shipping. Both have great review and matte black insides.

- What do you all suggest between the two ?

- I've heard the fan's NXZT uses are fairly quiet. Is this the case ?

- I know either aren't a cable management wonder but let me know what you all think.

Thanks !

Yeah, i saw this deal too. I would go with the 210 simply because of its minimalistic design and fan options. The non-elite case is $32 with free shipping...heck of a deal for a solid budget case. The elite basically comes with 1 x usb 3.0...and an extra fan (which is probably crap) over the non-elite version...I usually upgrade the stock fans from any case.

The M59 is well known to be an excellent case for air flow. The stock fans are just that,stock! Only one I use is the side window fan. They work good if your not OCing. I too always replace the front and rear fans to my choice. With just a slight increase in CFM the M59 is one to keep.

Cable management for me was nice, but as with so many other cases if you're still using a non modular PSU it always makes for more of a challenge. There is ample room under the drive bays for concealing unused harnesses.
