NZXT Beta EVO
Simply because a case is being marketed as budget does not mean that it is of budget quality. The Beta EVO arrived as a fully featured mid tower, performed as such, but is priced as though it is something substantially less. Featuring water cooling capability, plenty of spaces through which wires may be routed and plenty of fan spaces, this is a beast of a case, and you can’t forget the interior paint.
As a mobile mid tower, the Beta EVO features the aesthetics and wiring potential to keep your machine looking great. While it doesn’t stand out as boldly as other cases, it does not sacrifice utility or performance to achieve the aesthetic appeal it has.
The slightly bent tab above the PSU was a small gripe, not a big one. I’m also disappointed with only 1 fan being included, but I suppose that this would put it into another price bracket. I honestly can’t think of much that is wrong with this case. The main chassis is sturdy, it is pretty roomy.
Priced at about $60 USD, this case is a deal like no other, and better than many cases I’ve used that cost $30 more in both looks and utility. All these wire routing options (can’t stop mentioning them, they’re so great!), and no need for a Dremel! It can easily trump many other cases in its price segment, and even some above it. Probably not the best buy if your main concern is computer pimping, but it is definitely the best buy if nearly anything else has an influence on your selection.
