Manufacturer info: More info

NZXT Lexa S & Tempest Evo Cases offer what some more expensive case don't. They have great styling, design, black in and out, lots of fans, excellent air circulation, plenty of drive bays, cable management holes and so much more. With all these excellent features and the fact that these cases are affordable, you can't go wrong.

Lexa S is an awesome case but there's short place for cable management

Well I truly liked studying it. This information procured by you is very practical for correct planning.

Hey Rodney, your reviews are 100% kick-ass. I know this one is 1.7 years old so you probably would not remember, but for the Lexa S, what speed were the fans dialed up to when you switched it on? I'm wondering how quiet it is with the fans on low. (I guess I cannot expect it to be as silent as the H2 or Fractal R3/XL cases - I could hardly hear those in your reviews)

Cheers :)

And both of those case doesn't include an external air duct to dissipate the heat out from the video card to cool it down.

Your day has come to learn about Technology!

That sucks. HD 5870 video card can fit in  NZXT Lexa S case, but problem is that it's too close to the drive bays and won't have good air flow circulation. :(

Really would have liked to see both of these cases with removable motherboard trays and more dust filters.

Cooler Master really hit the mark with the ATCS 840.

Yea, the ATCS 840 is a gem, but in a difference class than these cases.

Well, there isn't a dust filter on the left side panel on either of these cases, but there is a mesh that will catch some of the dust. There really should be dust filters on all intake fans.

No dust filters on the side fans? Tsk tsk.

Well, the NZXT Tempest Evo Case is newer and has some updated features over the Antec 902. The 902 is still an excellent case. You may also consider the new Cooler Master 690 II Case. I will have a video review on the Cooler Master 690 II Case soon.

Which one would be better NZXT Evo or Antec 902 ??
