In all, the NZXT Lexa S is a great case for the money (~$80). It looks sleek and stylish, and the black painted interior completes the look. The included fan controller works well with the four included fans, and room for 7 hard drives is more than...

This case performs well, with only a few clearance issues. It has ample room and cooling even for an SLI or Crossfire system. NZXT has gone to extra trouble on the aesthetics of this case, with a fully finished interior, sleek faceplate, and hidden...

I knew the Lexa S would be a strong performer the moment I laid eyes on it. With the inclusion of 4 case fans, NZXT gives its customer a good start on the road to cooling. NZXT has fired off a new case once again, and has hit several consumers with a...

Overall the NZXT Lexa S is a sleek and powerful case. The complete black coloring scheme can make it similar to other cases, but the black tinted side panel window gives it that extra benefit. Of the maximum of five fans installed, four are included...

NZXT has brought us a chassis that is small and compact enough to be toted around easily for LAN parties while giving enough air flow to keep our computer components cool. The Lexa S also is stylish enough to become a show stopper for our friends and...

I like the look and the feel of this case. The small accents, like the tinted plexiglass with the beveled edges, the steel mesh drive covers and the two plastic strips on the front that glow blue, are all subtle details that make the appearance of...

Despite a few areas of concern the NZXT Lexa S is a great case. If you are planning on running a system that is in need of some serious water cooling this may not be the greatest case for you. Though, if you are going to run the radiator or the...

The NZXT Lexa S presents an interesting evolution in the Lexa Series. On one hand the "S" variant comes with an all black interior and an updated design, but on the other hand is aimed at a totally different market. That said, expect the omission of a...
