I would like to thank CaseKing.de for supplying the review sample.
CaseKing is one of the few companies out there, which will not just sell anything. They only offer hardware that performs well and is of high quality. The shop offers quite a few exclusive parts and devices from all around the world and it is also the official distributor for a long list of well known manufacturers. Their assortment has grown greatly in recent years, while great service and support is still a very important part of the shop philosophy. The website may be in German, but due to great demand, an English version is in the works. We received the very successful Cooler Master Stacker 832 from them and they were so kind to send us the newest NZXT case in the Lexa series which is aimed at the mainstream market with an all black color and the choice of red or blue lighting. CaseKing is also the official distributor of the region for NZXT.
NZXT Lexa BlacklineThe Lexa Blackline build on the very successful Lexa case, which has been selling for quite some time. The original is made of aluminum and also features the material on the plastic front door, which makes it quite light. The new Blackline edition utilizes steel and an all plastic door. This adds to the weight but does reduce cost a bit. NZXT has chosen to offer two variants of the Blackline Edition. One is lighted with red fans and features a red temperature LCD. while the other, which we have on our testbench today, has all blue lighting.
