The Source 210 Elite arrives with us in a eco-friendly box. On the plus side this is good for the environment and most people will be disposing of the box anyway but on the down-side there isn’t anything overly exciting about the graphics and there is an obvious lack of colour. Whichever way you look at it, the box does its job of protecting the case during transit and has all the technical details and features on the reverse.
Inside the box the case is protected via a clear plastic sheet and polystyrene pillars.
The eco-friendly packaging
Taking the Source 210 Elite out of its packaging we get a first glimpse of how this case looks. Visually, NZXT have gone with the sleek, minimalist approach with this case. It has subtle styling for those that prefer the understated approach.
On the prominent side we have a mesh panel to allow a 120mm fan to be attached for cooling just above the graphics card region, over on the other side the panel is just solid.
