My System Specs

Default NZXT M59 - Any opinions?

Getting tired of waiting for NZXT Beta Evo's availability and then another product rolled along: NCIX.com - Buy NZXT M59 ATX Mid Tower Case Black 4X5.25 7X3.5INT Rear & Side 120MM Fans Included *No PSU* - M59 In Canada.

NZXT M59 .. one thought: the front was hideous , after that everything seemed great.
Lots of room of airflow, cable management, side mounted HDD bays, back interior + window.
Heck even WC support for $65 !

To plastic IMO, but place inside seems ok. The HDD are side mounted so it will allow you to fit bigger video card. I don't see any front fan but I don't really search for them at all XD exept for the look and the plastic front, it seems a solid case. Go for it and make a workblog:P

Ask for more.

The front of the case looks atrocious, but that's just my opinion. :) It actually looks like a mini arcade machine.

I'd have to agree that the outside of the case is ugly. Inside looks ok though.

Yeah outside i don't mind because the front is actually in an area with bery low visibility ... mostly viewed from the side ... and this case is way more accessable.
BUT I NEED TO SELL MY ANTEC 900 ! D'OH!

Not to my taste as far as looks go, but I'd be interested in seeing a build with this that explored the wc options. Also great to see a lower priced case with a painted interior... that's been a long time coming. Can't cost them much more than a buck or two to paint, but it makes all the difference in the world.

Honestly, I'd paint the inside of your 900 black and boom, you have just as nice of a case with better airflow, WC support for ~$10 worth of paint :P

upside down mounted PSU, sideways HDD bays, cable management holes, dust filters are things that are lacking in the 900 which the m59 has.

I don't have to time to mod the 900. And it'll cost me too much. And as for paint , i want something that sticks ... so i'd probably powder coat it instead which will cost quite a bit more, not worth the hassle.
