Value is the name of the game these days, and that holds true even for enthusiast hardware. Case in point: NZXT has introduced the M59, a "gaming chassis" that delivers a surprising number of features for its $59.99 price tag.
The M59 has a flipped internal layout with the power supply at the bottom, and it includes room for five fans (120 to 140 mm). NZXT has made sure to drill plenty of holes through the motherboard tray, as well, which should allow users to remove CPU heatsink mounting brackets and route cables around the back. Speaking of drilling, liquid-cooling aficionados will also find two holes for pipes.
On the storage side of things, NZXT has outfitted the M59 with four 5.25" bays and seven 3.5" bays. The internal 3.5" bays face the side of the chassis for easier access, and there's even a special bracket that can play host to a pair of 2.5" solid-state drives. Other, miscellaneous features include front eSATA connectivity, a meshed front panel, and an "ambient light" that sits over the 5.25" drive bays to make access easier in dark environments.
Look for the NZXT M59 to hit stores in August. Until then, you can check out the gallery below for some images.
