Inside the NZXT Classic Series Source 210 Elite Mid Tower Case

With the side panels off you can see the interior matches the exterior with its black on white theme. The wires all come bundled together and run through some of the management holes, and the hardware is tied to the hard drive bays like our last submission form NZXT. Missing in this unit is any form of instructional materials.

The three 5.25" bays can be used with these large black clips on this side of the drive cages. I find these to be very structurally sound, but there are slots on the other side to use screws if you choose to.

You can see the fans behind the front are absent, NZXT does not supply these. Behind it are the eight 3.5" drive slots with the black tool-less locks contrasting against the white paint.

The motherboard tray offers twenty-one places to tie wires to, three large management holes and three smaller ones at the top. The largest hole in the tray is to allow access to the CPU cooler back plate.

The white finned, black framed fans are an attractive solution that fits the theme as does the seven solid black expansion slot covers. There are two holes to allow the passage of tubing if you do water cool in here.

The wiring is plenty long enough to manage well and still get you their connections on the motherboard. At the top you see the 3-pin and 4-pin Molex power plugs for both the 120mm and 140mm fans included in the chassis. On the table is a ribbon cable with the HDD activity, power, reset, and power LED connections. Then you have the HD Audio, USB 3.0, and USB 2.0 connections lying on the table.
