NZXT is a brand known for providing cost-effective products. Recently, they released the Tempest 210, a mid-tower case that costs only USD 55 and provides a terrific cost/benefit ratio, deserving our Golden Award. Now, NZXT released another USD 55 case, the Source 220. Let’s see if this case is also a good option and how it stacks up against the Tempest 210.

While the Tempest 210 supports eight fans, the Source 220 supports “only” seven.
