Summary: NZXT Lexa S & Tempest Evo Cases offer what some more expensive case don't. They have great styling, design, black in and out, lots of fans, excellent air circulation, plenty of drive bays, cable management holes and so much more.
Conclusion: In all, the NZXT Lexa S is a great case for the money (~$80). It looks sleek and stylish, and the black painted interior completes the look. The included fan controller works well with the four included fans, and room for 7 hard drives is more than enough for most people.
Conclusion: This case performs well, with only a few clearance issues. It has ample room and cooling even for an SLI or Crossfire system. NZXT has gone to extra trouble on the aesthetics of this case, with a fully finished interior, sleek faceplate, and hidden fasteners.
Cons: Clearance issues with upper fan mounts and cable routing, Side USB ports too close together, Glossy front bay door attracts dust, fingerprints, and scratches
Summary: We've had the chance over the past couple years to get a few NZXT cases onto our test bench here at BCCHardware, and the one thing that we've noticed time and time again is the value that you get with NZXT.
Pros: Great Cable Management Features, Affordable MSRP, Excellent Cooling, Included Fan Controller
Conclusion: NZXT has brought us a chassis that is small and compact enough to be toted around easily for LAN parties while giving enough air flow to keep our computer components cool. The Lexa S also is stylish enough to become a show stopper for our friends and family.
Excerpt: It seems that about once every 30 to 45 days we get word that NZXT is releasing a new case and they wondered if we would like to review it for them. Having review a number of their cases in the past we are always excited to see what changes they have added to their latest creation.
Summary: The NZXT Lexa S presents an interesting evolution in the Lexa Series. On one hand the "S" variant comes with an all black interior and an updated design, but on the other hand is aimed at a totally different market.
Pros: Cool looking design, Black interior, Nice looking window, Fan controller for four fans, 4 out of 5 possible fans included, Can hold a dual radiator in the ceiling, Optical Drive bays with thumb screws, Dust guards on all intake fans, Silent fans, Plenty of space for large parts, Very good cable m...
Cons: 120 mm tower CPU coolers may not fit properly, Feature list misleading or wrong at times, Not all hard drive bays are screw-less, Where is the "night light"?, Holes for cable routing nice but of limited use, Some may not like all that plastic up front, Rear water cooling holes in a bad spot
Summary: This latest S model carries on the Lexa name and improves upon the original Lexa and Lexa Blackline, bringing them up to date with all the latest case technology. New venting has been added or modified in the front bezel and side panel to improve cooling, a front-mounted eSATA port is available,...
Excerpt: В настоящее время выбрать корпус для системного блока не так просто, и вот почему. Если ранее (порядка 5-7 лет назад) корпуса были сделаны на базе практически идентичных шасси, а отличались, в основном, дизайном и расположением одного-двух вентиляторов, то сейчас ситуация в корне изменилась.
