NZXT M59 Classic Series Mid Tower Chassis - The NZXT M59 Mid Tower Case

The M59 is a Mid Tower chassis that offers quite a list of features. Let's test the old adage and see if good things still come in small packages.

The NZXT M59 Mid Tower Case

The front of the M59 is a bit unusual looking at first glance with its "zig-zag" side profile. This design leaves the chunky looking sides and the bigger bits jutting out at the top, middle and bottom. The center is all mesh and backed with light foam for dust filtering; all but the top bay that is. This one has a stealth cover installed so you don't have to see the face of the optical drive.

Keeping with the geometric look of the front bezel, the smoked window follows those lines. The window is cut to allow for the 120mm blue LED fan to add fresh air to the components. The top of the chassis has two additional places that support 120mm fans, or even potential to hold a radiator.

On the rear panel we start out with two tubing holes with grommets on top. Moving down is the rear I/O flanked by the 42CFM, 120mm fan supplied for exhausting the M59. Then we run into seven, vented, expansion slot covers with a nice sized area of passive ventilation. That leaves the rather large hole at the bottom to be taken up with a PSU.

The right side panel is plainer just painted with the same textured, matte black that is found throughout. There is a nice little finger grabbing "dent" in the rear to give you some additional force to open the panel.

Under the M59 you will find it is already ventilated for a PSU and even includes a removable dust filter. Aside from that there are two things to mention. One is the small rubber feet that support the chassis. The second is the hole between the chassis and front panel. Just grab in there and give it a bit of a tug, the front panel will come right off.
