NZXT is a newer company that’s making quite a splash into the case market. They first came into existence in 2004 and have since released 5 incredibly unique computer towers that are far from boring. The case we are taking a look at today is the Lexa, which is not only great looking but very classy as well. In fact, the cases goal was to have “Perfect Symmetry”, and they certainly have seemed to pull that off.
When I had first set my eyes on the Lexa, I had my doubts. The design was so far different than I expected, that I didn’t really care much for it. In fact, it originally reminded me of something that you’d strap a chain to in order to knock down brick walls. After actually having it all set up though, my opinions changed entirely. Let’s jump straight into the specifications of the case.

There are a few things that immediately stand out to me. After taking the case out of the box, I couldn’t believe how light it had felt. The front panel looks like polished steel, but is plastic. It has the look, but weighs far less. I also noticed that the inside of the case was very cluttered with all the doodads. As a whole though, the case was beautiful to say the least. Pure black color and glossy really helps this case look sleek and sexy.
