In the end the NZXT Source 220 is the NZXT Tempest 210 with a minor face change. The inner structure is exactly the same minus a hole or two for the non-existent top tray. It’s another look available for a case that fits your tight budget build. With a great price and simple appearance it really can’t be beat. Whether you are building for yourself, a friend, or family member this is honestly a great case to get someone into gaming. It’s affordable and looks great! What else can you possibly want on this level? If you can handle the smaller size, then this is your best bet — even with the low cost aside, this is genuinely a very nice case.
To be honest this case is pretty awesome; its low cost is really an added benefit. Once you get your hardware situated it runs like a champ. A few more fans inside and you’ll be competing with the low temperatures of a higher cost case in no time. The sad thing is that some cases still run hotter than this one with only two fans! This case was designed to follow NZXT’s classic line; it’s just unreal how inexpensive this case is and how well it performs. In the end, most cases in this price range aren’t something you would even buy as a last resort — this case really is of good quality at a very low cost. This might be the NZXT case for you. Way to go NZXT on the Source 220!
- Very inexpensive
- Sleek appearance
- Sturdy overall build
- Good air flow
- Great for a build to not be messed with
- Somewhat small in size
- Cheap bay and HDD mounts — very fragile
- Side panels are a pain (but can’t complain too much)
