NZXT, founded in 2004, has in recent years been unleashing wave after wave after wave after wave (you get the idea) of system chassis.

To the delight of cash-strapped consumers, each chassis has arrived with the promise of lower-than-usual prices. And, though we can't comment on build quality without thorough testing, the majority of NZXT's chassis seem decent but affordable.

Take for example the all-new NZXT M59 gaming chassis. This steel monster, pictured below, measures 190mm x 449mm x 508mm, weighs 6.5kg and will ship in August with an MSRP of $59.99.

For under sixty bucks, you'll get a side 120mm LED fan and a rear 120mm exhaust included. If you need more cooling you'll find room to mount a 120mm intake up front, and two 140mm/120mm fans at the top.

There's room for a bottom-mounted PSU, graphics cards up to 10.5in in length, and the chassis is equipped with both pre-drilled water cooling holes and a pre-installed cable management system. Elsewhere, you'll find support both 2.5in and 3.5in drives - meaning it has your SSDs covered - and an all-black interior.

NZXT reckons "the airflow, expandability, cable management, ease of installation, and sleek look and feel make this a very compelling option for the budget conscious gamer." At $59.99 (roughly £40), it might have a point.

Looks bloody awful!
The internals look a lot like the Coolermaster CM-690 but without the toolless mounting options. At least in layout .

If you can live with the styling it's about £20 cheaper than the Coolermaster and appears to have a more sensible MB tray. If the cooling is as good as the CM then they could well be on to a budget winner.
It's got a blue illuminated mini spaceship dock! What's not to like?!!?? It's got shades of the Lamborghini Reventón about it…

It may not be to everyone's taste but to have variety at that price point is impressive.
Why stick that huge ugly lump of plastic on the front of what looks to be a well thoughtout case, what a shame. Sleek aesthetics you say…:surprised:
oh dear… that is really ugly!
