The NZXT Beta Mid Tower Steel Chassis is what budget gamers are looking for. The NZXT Beta offers the most features for a budget case out there. It supports large 10.5″ video cards, four 5.25″ & five 3.5″ drive bays and offers plenty of cooling options. Its slick style and complete black interior are sure to get your attention. Starting off on the top of the case are the external ports which include mic/headset, two USB and an eSATA. They even happened to be labeled which might help the technically challenged to use this case.
There is a slight curvature to the front bezel of the case, which is mainly composed of plastic. Sitting inside of that curve are the four 5.25″ drive bays which all have mesh covers for better airflow. A plastic grate covers most of the lower half of the bezel which also covers more wire mesh, giving the bezel a nice air supply for the case.
The side panel is a single sheet of metal minus the two mesh holes cut near the rear of the panel for the two additional 120mm fans that can be installed.
The Beta carries the same generic layout as most of the NZXT cases. You have your power supply, I/O slot, 120mm grate for fan, 2 rubber holes for tubing and an extra grate next to the PCI slots, which just happen to be made of mesh for better airflow.
The main side panel also has the handy feature of having two thumbscrews for a quick and easy removal.
