The Front Panel
The front panel of the NZXT Source 220 has similar features as the Tempest 210’s, with three external 5.25” bays, all using meshed covers with air filters.
Like the Tempest 210, the Source 220 supports two 120 mm fans on its front panel, as you can see in Figure 5. In order to keep the cost down, the case doesn’t come with them. The Tempest 210, however, comes with an air filter for these fans, a feature not available on the Source 220.
The case comes with one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port and the traditional audio jacks. The number of USB ports is low, and they are too close to each other, preventing you from installing two thumb drives at the same time. The USB 3.0 port uses a cable with an internal connector, so you don’t need to connect this cable to a USB 3.0 port located on the rear panel of your motherboard. Just make sure to buy a motherboard with an internal USB 3.0 header.
