Summary: Honestly, I would not go with this particular case a second time. It is roomy, has a great layout and plenty of cooling options and mad internal drive bays, but, once built out they are a real pain to change drives out. In retrospect I should have spent a few more dollars on a case and some cages to load drives directly in the front, but for the price, I guess it is 'ok' enough. And, its white.
Summary: Does as described, and lots of space on the inside. I wasn't looking for paying for design, fancy LED's, etc. Just a case that does the job. The tool free installation of parts is nice, but I could not seat the motherboard well in this case. The screws for tying the mobo down are just not long enough, and pop off over time. I am not a fan of this at all, as it concerns me that so much flex is on the motherboard just to keep the dang thing from moving around loosely.
NZXT Source 210 ELITE Midtower Case with 3.0 USB - Black
26 January 2014
Summary: A nice cheap case, however the from USB ports are upside down. Nearly a year after owning this case my front USB ports have become extremely loose when I plug something into them, often causing them to disconnect or have problems. I would recommend spending slightly more getting a better case.
Summary: This case is OK but way overpriced. Cons:The front plastic face shows defective design and poor quality, (mine looks like it was deformed during the molding process), the black color camouflages this so it's not visible until one tries to plug in a USB device. Upside down USB ports are obstructed by the cheesy design and the headphone and mike jack are about as cheap as one can possibly get, (the black icons are invisible and the jacks are not color coated so one can't...
Summary: I am built a computer for my sister and purchased this case having been aware of the hundreds of reviews across multiple sites lauding this case as one of the best values available. Having just finished a computer build for myself using a HAF 912 that I purchased for only $10 more than this 310 Elite, I was disappointed.
Summary: it's a mediocre case. It can be better. The white gets dirty easily and it scratches easily as well. The case has good cable management holes so that's a plus! Another plus is the fact that it can carry at least 4 or 5 fans if you choose to. However, it still sports the white look which makes it seem very aesthetic but the front panel just makes you think other wise. If you want to use this for an office computer, I would suggest it.
Summary: it works fine, only came with a two exhaust fans, one 140mm top-mount and one 120mm rear. so account for adding an intake in the front or side panel. It's nice that they had little clip things to just snap the HDD drives on, but no 2.5 SSD adapter, so also plan on picking that up. the plastic parts feels really cheap and the front bezel (usp ports/audio ports) looks super cheap with uneven plastic leftover cutouts.
Summary: Excellent budget case with many features - both side-panels are removable, two fans, bottom mounted power, access to back of mother-board, etc. Reason for the less than perfect rating relates to the USB 3.0 connection to the front panel. Although there is only a single USB 3.0 connection (as advertised) the connecting cable from this port plugs into a dual USB 3.0 header at the motherboard, thus wasting one of these valuable ports.
Summary: The cost of the black business case and that I can prime ship it is the main reasons I buy it. Everything is good with it I have deployed it over 5 times now on various builds. Only issue is the front design is slanted so the DVD burner looks like it is sticking out weird.
Summary: I bought this case based on it's USB 3.0 front port and it's abundance of cooling options. It comes with two fans and has pre-drilled options for adding 2x120mm fans on the front panel and another 120mm-140mm fan on the side panel as well as a 140mm fan mount for the top. Its cost was roughly $40.00 and with the added feature of a bottom PSU mount, it seemed ideal for a new build.
