Seems like NZXT has gotten their act together. First the Phantom, then the H2 and now the entry level Source. As is the scenario for all cases of this price class, looks is what matters and NZXT has managed to offer a good feature set for a 39.90 or 49.90 Euro chassis. Especially the Elite version with USB 3.0, two fans and the detailed black and white design choice is a great case not just as far as looks is concerned. The design of the front panel may not be for everyone, but those who like the somewhat abstract looking shape will not be disappointed by the case itself. The only two bigger gripes I have about the chassis - both no deal breakers - is the lack of screws and dust filters. Overall we can certainly recommend the chassis for those design conscious folk who are on a budget or rather spend their money on something else besides computer parts.
