NZXT Lexa S Case Review

Introduction (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

This case comes with two USB ports, which are too close to each other and thus can prevent you from installing two “fat” USB devices at the same time, and one eSATA port, which is a really nice addition and a feature not usually found on cases from this price range. These ports plus the audio jacks are located on the left side from the front panel, as you can see in Figure 6.

The top panel from Lexa S is identical to the top panel from M59 and Beta EVO, but coming with a 140 mm fan pre-installed there (42 cfm, 23 dB, standard peripheral power connector and small three-pin connector), feature not found on the other two models. This leaves a space opened for installing a second 140 mm or a 120 mm fan there.

The power supply is installed on the bottom of the case, a feature that is usually only available on more expensive cases. What is really nice about Lexa S is that it comes with a washable dust filter on the bottom of the case, right below where the power supply fan is located (if you use a power supply with a fan on the bottom part). This filter is easily accessible from outside the case.

In Figure 9, you can see the rear panel from Lexa S, which is identical to the rear panel from M59. The rear panel and the interior from this case are painted black, which gives a very professional looks to this case. The slot covers are meshed, which helps increasing the internal airflow – another feature normally only found on more expensive units. There is also a mesh with big holes above the slots, also helping the internal airflow. The case comes with a 120 mm fan here (42 cfm, 23 dB, standard peripheral power connector and small three-pin connector) and as mentioned the power supply is installed on the bottom part. Lexa S comes with two holes for water cooling systems on the top part.
