Summary: I ran OCCT for 20 minutes on Large Data Set and High Priority. CoreTemp reported the system’s idle temperature was 27C, only three degrees higher than room temperature. At 100% stress the temperature was reported at 51C. This is well below the thermal peak of 71C – 76C threshold reported for this processor. This test was performed using only the stock cooling already installed within the case.
Pros: Excellent cable management, Lightweight, Ample work space inside, Various cooling options, Good expansion capability
Excerpt: NZXT has been very kind to me and kept me in supply of their chassis' over the past year. Thinking back to cases like the Zero2, Beta and Panzerbox, NZXT can make both the usual chassis, as well as thinking outside the box and rearranging a bit of hardware in others. I do remember being impressed with those cases in what they offered as well as the design and concept. Today we are looking at an addition to their Classic series of chassis'.
Conclusion: This case performs well; it's not a tool-less case (but no case at this price point is). It offers ample interior room for most builds and is easy to work with. The NZXT M59's appearance is bold and rather aggressive. This may not be to everyone's taste, but it a good fit for the intended market. Touches like the finished interior and the hidden fasteners for the side window are nice extras. The construction quality of the case was top-notch.
Pros: Finsihed interior with rounded edges, Cable routing holes, tie-down areas, and processor back plate cutout, Room for 7 3.5" devices and 4 5.25" devices, Bottom-mount power supply with filtered intake, Extraordinary features and construction quality for the price, Radical styling appealing to some
Cons: No external 3.5" bays, Upper fan mounts of limited usefulness, Difficult to mount front 120mm fan, Front panel USB ports too close together, Radical styling not appealing to some
Excerpt: Marketed as a gaming mid- tower case the M59 offers up features like clearance for 10.5 inch graphics cards, support for water cooling , and a well ventilated design. We will see how well the case handles a budget system.
Pros: Lots of ventilation, Water cooling friendly, Quiet, Accessible
Cons: Lack of) Behind motherboard space, No 3.5 inch external bays, Unusable top 5.25 inch bay
Summary: While the hard drive bays have rails for easy access, they also only fit onto the drive in one direction, and that direction faces the drive backwards so that the SATA and power connector are pointing to the motherboard side of the case. While this is the way to go for cable management, in certain situations this could be slightly less than ideal.
Pros: Good Cooling, Roomy, Pretty Lights, Unique Design, Water Cooling Ready
Conclusion: NZXT promised an advanced gaming chassis that’s easy to build. On all accounts, NZXT has delivered. Not only does this case facilitate easy building, it also allows for easy upgrades by making swapping of components a breeze.
Summary: NZXT M59 is a mid-tower case targeted to the user that wants an inexpensive good-quality mid-tower. Here is a summary of what we found about this product.
In summary, we think this is a terrific product for the user that is on a budget and is looking for a good product. Costing only USD 60 (USD 50 after a USD 10 mail-in rebate) this case is a no-brainer.
Conclusion: From the start, the NZXT M59 has been a winner. It has most of the latest features of a high-end case, with the price-tag of a budget case. The black on black look of the M59 looks great and the window on the side shows off all of the goodies tucked inside. With space for a watercooling radiator on the top of the case, there is plenty of room for cooling expansion.
Conclusion: Fazit: NZXT hat mit dem M59 Gehäuse ein solides Grundpaket geliefert. Sowohl die Verarbeitung und das Design als auch die Funktionalität können größtenteils überzeugen. Kritikpunkte sind die leider etwas lauten Lüfter und schlecht geschnittenen Abstandshaltergewinde. Die schwarz getönte Scheibe und die blaue Beleuchtung setzen die verbaute Hardware stimmungsvoll in Szene.
