NZXT has updated the Lexa series with a more affordable Blackline versions. The steel cases can be had with either blue or red lighting effects and feature all the bells and whistles of the original Lexa, but with an all black color. Aside from the awesome outside looks the Lexa features a clean interiour which has lots of space, even for the biggest video cards. An LCD display with three sensors completes the package.

Case Bottom Intake...WHY NOT!?

This is the first case I've seen the bottom intake vent, which leads to the question...Why isn't the entire bottom of the case constructed of perforated or similar material to allow cold air in?
