    NZXT, a company built on realizing the dreams of gamers worldwide, is proud to announce the Lexa S gaming chassis. As with all of NZXT’s cases, Lexa S is designed for enhanced airflow with capability for 5 fans including 120mm fans on the front, side, and exhaust with a 140 mm fan on top. NZXT includes the side, rear, top, and front fans along with a fan controller that controls dual intakes and exhausts independently and effectively optimizes your computers performance based on your preference for pure power or whisper quiet operation.

    Lexa S offers gamers sleek aesthetics with a smoked clear window and all black interior along with a 5.25” stealth bay, turned HDD cage, and punched holes in the motherboard which makes for a cleaner look and gives enthusiasts a solution for superior cable management. Additional features include an ambient light over the 5.25” drives for extra visibility at LAN parties and a bracket for two Solid State Drives.

    “We really wanted to offer gamers a solution for under $70 that offers optimal performance with out compromise” said Johnny Hou, Chief Designer at NZXT. “With Lexa S you get enhanced airflow, sleek aesthetics, superior cable management and added features like an SSD bracket.”

    The Lexa S will be available in September at an MSRP of $69.99. For more information visit this page.

    Nice looks, especially for the price-tag. It seems to share the side-window from the Tempest, though about 5 or so cm shorter if I'm to judge from the picture.

    PSU's bottom-mounted, hdd's side-mounted... I quite like it.

    Probably crappy dull sheet metal, but for $70 and a nice exterior, what more could we ask?

    NZXT do nice cases.

    It looks like a more aggressive Apollo ( also by NZXT)

    its the build of M59

    this is lexa the front change but the body is M59 included the side panell
    finaly NZXT got the cablae mangment that every one look for together with the diffrent look that ante or CM bring
    so now NZXT got them all almost all i hope the plastic not cheep like they have in the Tempest or last Lexa Black line

    but its really the way to go

    Hopefully it will get the interior paint job like the Beta series. NZXT is apparently trying to muscle the case industry into lowering cost on quality cases.

    nice my secondary rig is in the lexa... (silver /black / blue version)... the only thing I dont like about it is the fact that the window exposes the dvd / HDD bays... which is always an ugly area to look at no matter how neat your cable tidying skills... why not just change the window a bit on these type of cases so all you see is the board, cpu hsf ram and gfx card... much better looking even if your cables are up to shit ;)

    Think I'm the only one that doesn't like this.

    Maybe more pictures/reviews of it later on down the line I may change my mind.

    It doesn't look amazing, looks like a few other of their cases, which isn't horrible, and for the price it should be a nice case.

    I think it's gaudy and ugly. I like clean and elegant cases. This just looks too "boy racer" to me.

    This is one thing I love about my case. The side window is huge, but it came with an metal shield to cover the Front bays. It has Ultra stamped on it, but still awesome touch. I am with you on that one.

    HMM I have the lexa blackline, and between the 140 top exhaust and the black interior, I bet this case has great looks and improved air flow. I like it!
