Specifications, Availability and Pricing
As I mentioned, this is an all-steel chassis that has been painted inside and out with a matte black finish. The front panel and the drive mounting hardware are mostly plastic, though. The cooling offered in the Beta is capable of housing up to four 120mm fans; only the intake 120mm blue LED fan is included with the purchase. The Beta can house up to four 5.25" drives and has room for up to five hard drives. The rear can house seven expansion cards.
The NZXT Beta chassis is on shelves pretty much everywhere. I can't really see any issues of trying to acquire this chassis. Doing a bit of Google shopping leads me to see that there are 38 e-tailers at this point stocking the Beta chassis and all are currently in stock. Again, if this ends up being a choice to house your rig, there isn't any reason why you shouldn't have one.
The pricing of the NZXT Beta is what really surprises me this time above all else. NZXT is offering a chassis with quite a few options for the measly asking price of $49.99 USD at Newegg with free shipping. Looking currently, there is even a $10 mail-in rebate option which brings the Beta to a $40 shipped price tag. Umm, WOW! I'm really thinking at this point, I need to get the Beta open and get my hands inside it to see what NZXT offers for such a small hit in the wallet.
