NZXT M59 Medium Tower PC Chassis Early Look

PC Games Hardware Online is again a step ahead of NZXT themselves, giving us an early look at their latest enclosure - the mid-tower M59 PC chassis. The new all-black case is big enough to fit four 5.25-inch drives, and up to five 3.5-inch hard disks, also the case comes with brackets that allow for up to two 2.5-inch solid-state drives to be installed inside. For adequate cooling NZXT provides two 120 mm fans installed on the side panel and on the back of the case. An additional two 140 mm fans can be installed on top of the case. Lastly, the case has pre-drilled holes that ease the installation of external water cooling radiators a lot. The case is expected to start selling later this month for just under 60 Euro.

As long as it does NOT have Blue LED fans its awesome.
Something like white or purple or lime would be cool.

I think it's hot... except for the case window (hate those). But that's just cosmetics... Bad internal case design... the HDD cage is potentially in the way of a serious business graphics card. That and I never liked the power supply being at the bottom.

Why? A PSU at the bottom makes a sturdier and less top heavy case and thermally its much better for the system. Its probably OEM'ed by Coolermaster as usual for NZXT thus any GTX260/280/295/HD4870X2/etc will fit as it seems to be derived from the gladiator 600.

Heat rises ya know? so if your system runs toasty, the last place you want a PSU to be is at the top as it will be catching all the heat, and cycling it through the system. Some logic please? I know many of you think that the GPU's heat may damage your PSU, but that is just an assumption, an incorrect one when you consider how heat only travels upwards, unless blown downwards, but will still be displaced by the volume of heavier cool air from the intakes. For cabling's sake these days its pretty irrelevant because PSU manufacturers and motherboard manufacturers are moving the connectors to convenient locations for these modified ATX cases.

So, those are pictures of a pre-production sample? It only has atx mounts and the clearance from the top fans to the motherboard doesn't seem quite enough.

Other than that, I kind of like it. It will sell quite well if they keep the price down.

if you have a serious long card more than likely its a high end card which your probably not doing sli or xfire on seeing as its already high end..... unless your mounting your gfx card at the bottom part of your mobo there wouldn't be any clearance issues at all, directly across from the top 3 expansion slots is the fdd cage which i'm sure you could gut out anyway if need be.
