Tecware Nexus M2 Micro-ATX Case Review
Peter Donnell / 12 months ago
While it’s obvious that I have the black version of this case in for review, it is also available in white, but of course, it’s up to you which is more appropriate for your build. First impressions are very good though, with a large tempered glass window running the full height of the left side, and a full-height bank of ventilation holes down the left side of the front panel too. The window is mounted on a hinge with a magnetic lock, so you can easily pop it open, and even lift it off the hinge and put it to one side while working on your build.
On the right side, it’s a solid metal panel, nothing complicated, but it does look neat and tidy. Again, there’s more ventilation on the right side of the front panel.
As you can see, the front is a solid panel, but it has a light texture to it that gives it a nice smart appearance. The side airflow is going to be more than enough though, and the indirect airflow design is going to work wonders in masking the fan noise too.
Upon the top, there’s a large ventilated section, with room to mount a pair of 120mm fans. However, even without fans here, the passive heat exhaust alone is going to help greatly reduce system temperatures anyway.
Towards the front, you’ll find the main power controls, audio jacks, and a pair of USB 3.0 ports. Again, this isn’t a particularly complex setup, but it’s neat and tidy and well suited to a smaller case like this.
Around the back, it’s business as usual, with all the mATX mounts you would expect. There’s a rear fan mount, with some elongated screw mounts, allowing for a small amount of height adjustment; handy for improving AIO cooler support.
