With my time scouring forums, it never fails that there are guys on a super limited budget that need to put together a solid gaming PC. After all the best "bang for the buck" components are chosen, there may not be a whole lot of funds to dedicate to a chassis to house the investment. Most of the choices in the sub $100 range are either poorly designed or, sorry to say it, ugly to look at. Never fear, NZXT has priced a mid tower chassis where there really can't be any complaints.
My last experience with NZXT was when I reviewed the Panzerbox, which was a nice change to the normal chassis with a unique layout and good airflow. Previous to that I looked at one of their more basic tower chassis designs and was surprised to see that I could in fact install my GTX 280 in the Zero2. With all this in mind, I am eager to see what they have sent to our labs this time.
Today, NZXT has sent us the Beta mid tower chassis from their classic series for review. This is an all steel chassis with a plastic front. The chassis is a basic concept and offers not only a good candidate for a new bang for the buck chassis, but seems to have the modding community in mind already. NZXT ships the Beta with an interior of black to match the exterior as well as accommodating for wire management. Talk is cheap! Let's get through the specifications and then to some images, shall we?
