NZXT Beta Case Review

Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Beta is an inexpensive mid-tower case from NZXT yet having several features traditionally found only on high-end models. Let’s see if Beta is a good buy.



The first thing we noticed was that this is a very light case, weighting only 16 lbs (7.28 Kg), which is practically half of the weight of mid-tower cases we usually review.

As you can see in Figure 1, the side panel has two meshes where you can install side 120 mm fans.

The front panel does not have a door. All bay covers are meshed to improve ventilation inside the case, and they all feature dust filters. This case has four external 5.25” bays and although an external 3.5” bay is available in the chassis, the front panel does not have the proper hole for installing external 3.5” devices. This is a huge design flaw that we will address later.

In order to cut costs this case doesn’t come with a manual, but it can be downloaded on the manufacturer’s website.
