The sleek design of a black case with red accents really appealed to me, and I had to check it out. From my previous experience with a case from NZXT I was pretty sure that I would not be disappointed, and the Lexa Blackline lived up to my expectations. In fact, while I normally prefer full tower cases, I have now decided to use this as my primary case. - The Review

I just recieved one of these and my only complaint is the quality of the fans. They all have 4-pin molex pass through connectors instead of the 3-pin connectors that can be used on the motherboard or with fan controllers. Also they're missing the third wire used for RPM measurement.

The bearings in the fans are the sleeve bearing type, so over time they'll wear out, and the fans will start to wobble, fail to reach full speed, and make a lot of noise (in my experience sleeve bearing fans do this after about 1 year of high use, or as little as 8 months if on all the time).

My last 2 cases were a Chieftec Dragon, which still has nice quiet ball bearing fans after over 5 years, and an Arctic Cooling Silentium T2 pro, which isn't old enough to know if the fans will last, but they look to be high quality, as it's designed to be quiet.

I wish more case manufacturers would take the same step with fans as they did with power supplies , which is to leave them out if they can't put quality components in (I don't want to single out NZXT as plenty of other manufacturers are guilty of this). I don't need cheap parts in it that push the price up, and will have to be removed. Otherwise this is a high quality case that looks stunning.
