Summary: The NZXT Source 220 mid-tower had good performance. There are some exceptional included features for the price.
As of right now, the NZXT Source 220 has to be the best budget gaming case that I have reviewed.
Pros: Price, Bottom Mount PSU, Tool Free Design, One 120mm and One 140mm Fan included, Quiet Operation, Front USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 Port, Steel Mesh for Optimal Airflow, Cable Management, Supports Up To 330mm GPU Size, 160mm CPU Heatsink Clearance
Summary: Seems like NZXT has gotten their act together. First the Phantom, then the H2 and now the entry level Source. As is the scenario for all cases of this price class, looks is what matters and NZXT has managed to offer a good feature set for a 39.90 or 49.90 Euro chassis.
Pros: Pretty cool looks (subjective), Two fairly quiet fans included, Internal USB 3.0 connector, Excellent black design throughout the entire chassis, Screwless HDD locks hold suprisingly well, ODD locks hold well, Many openings for cable management, Tall CPU coolers will fit
Cons: No dust filters for intake fans, No extra screws included - just the bare minimum, Not many boards have the internal USB 3.0 connector yet, Design may not be for everyone, Simple packaging
Summary: During this review, we found out that the Tempest 210 and the Source 220 cases from NZXT share the same internal design. Costing the same, the main question is, “which one is better?
Pros: Meshed bay covers with air filters, Vented slot covers, A huge hole in the motherboard tray for accessing the backplate of the CPU cooler, Holes for routing cables behind the motherboard tray, Support for eight 3.5” hard drives, Support for one 2.5” device, Supports a total of seven fans
Cons: No air filters for the fans, No thumbscrews for fastening expansion cards
