    Nexus announced the newest addition its case lineup. The Nexus EDGE, measuring 64.2 x 23.9 x 57.6 cm (L x W x D) is a full-ATX tower, compatible with most Flex-ATX, M-ATX, ATX, and E-ATX motherboards. The case has a fine brushed-metal finish with polished, rounded-off edges. The external drive bays can be locked off behind a metal front-door. Although the exterior reveals 13 5.25" bays, only 8 of them are accessible. The bottom five bay covers protect the 4-bay 3.5" drive cage inside, which neighbours two 2-bay drive racks that hang above the PSU area. This area is separated from the motherboard area, and shares room for a 120 mm fan with it.

    The motherboard tray has room for 7 expansion slots. It has an opening where most motherboards have the CPU socket, which provides accessibility to CPU coolers with bolt-through retention mechanisms. Another 120 mm fan bay is located above the rear-panel, an a 140 mm fan to ventilate the entire case from its top. The case provides a degree of noise control with its noise-absorbtion wave foam padding. The utility panel is located on the top, and is a standard issue with a couple of USB ports, an eSATA port, and audio connectors. The Nexus EDGE is expected to retail for around 160 EUR.

    I really like this, but it is far too big for me. Excellent design though.

    Nice!, i would of liked it more with the PSU at the top.. That door has to go to increase the air input and some nice x38mm fans.

    Make sure you don't place it on the floor :p. I'd still buy a cube case over this one.

    ^^^ Me too, I like this setup... Also the extra features such as the sound proofed panels and 4 holes for watercooling instead of 2. I do like that the psu is on the bottom to keep the heat away from the motherboard. The only thing I would get rid of is the bezel cover (ugly hinged door).
