The NZXT Source 220 Mid Tower Case
NZXT makes mention of this aluminum-like finish applied to something here, but maybe they mean the paint on the steel mesh - I'm not really sure. Surrounding the three bay covers and large mesh panel is a textured black plastic that is cut top and bottom on odd angles. Surrounding this is a shiny finished ring of black plastic that houses the front I/O panel up top and is surrounded again with a textured outer ring that finishes off the front bezel.
Speaking of the front I/O panel, this chassis offers 3.5mm jacks for headphones and a microphone with a USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 port on the right. Sorry I forgot to get this image in the beginning, but I did remember after the build, that is why the DVD drive is in so early in the review.
This is where the size options come into play with the fans. NZXT ships one 140mm fan installed to blow out of the chassis through the top. You can either add another 140mm fan, or remove this one and use a pair of 120mm fans if you choose to.
I think I got the left side panel concept now. This is the Source panel, as was seen on the Source 210 Elite. While not as large as the Tempest 210 side panel, this mesh allows for a fan to be installed where the Tempest does not.
In the back you get the rear I/O panel next to the 120mm exhaust fan with seven vented expansion slots with water cooling holes and mesh next to it. This leaves the obvious hole for the PSU at the bottom.
No bumps, no venting, just a flat panel painted in a textured black finish as the rest of the case received.
Under the Source 220 we are back to black rubber feet for the black cases. The area under the PSU at the left and the 120mm fan hole in the middle offer a honeycomb mesh to allow for all the air possible. I just wish there were filters here, but they do have the supports for you to devise your own.
