The latest Source case from NZXT is the mid tower Source 220, a chassis designed for optimal airflow. To accomplish this, the case is equipped with steel mesh and can accommodate up to seven fans. Other features include screwless design, easy heatsink installation and cable management, and USB 3.0 capabilities.

The brushed aluminum-finish case can be yours today for just $54.99 from NZXT's website.

For a more in-depth look at the Source 220, keep an eye out for our upcoming case roundup.

I'm really surprised they released two similar looking cases that are 55 dollars. The tempest 210 looks a little more aggressive but still look similar to this. I really like that these budget cases are coming with usb3. I'd like to see how they compare to one another with temps and air flow.

Now you're just mashing it!

"Yeah, the Tempest 210 looks more aggressive, the Source 220 more simple looks will appeal to many.  I must say that these NZXT cases look way better than the Raidmax from a while ago, that's for sure. What I'm eagerly awaiting though, is for the Cooler Master CM Storm Trooper, it will launch officially on Tuesday "

I like NZXT equipment personally and they always seem to be great on price and although they may not be the best in the market I always hear good things about them. I likt this one personally with it's understated look and would imagine it will appeal to a lot of people. Plus the more market share NZXT gets the quicker others will have to notice as they are almost always cheaper bu there quality is pretty decent across the board with some notable top of the lines as well (that are still cheap).

Not a bad case, fits in with server cases more then with a person case.
