Tecware Nexus M2 Micro-ATX Case Review
Peter Donnell / 12 months ago
I really like this case, it’s clean and simple, and it just makes for a very straightforward build process. While it doesn’t really offer anything unique or innovative, I’m glad it doesn’t, as it results in a case that I could build with my eyes closed. It’s very beginner-friendly, from start to finish.
GPU support is very good, with up to 300mm of clearance. Sure, the most extreme cards on the market may not fit, but I doubt RTX 3090 buyers are shopping in this price bracket for a PC case too, so I can’t see this being a major issue.
CPU cooler clearance is very good, with most of the larger Noctua coolers, and quite a few other brands of larger air coolers fitting easily enough. Again, a 120mm AIO could fit in the back, but otherwise, you’ll be better off with air cooling for this build. Personally, I quite like my little slim cooler, it looks neat!
There’s good clearance around the motherboard, allowing for easy cable routing runs. Having the PSU shroud hide all the cable gore, getting a clean build was easy enough, even if you half-arse it and cram it all out of sight.
A vertical pass-through for the GPU power cable would have been nice, but since the case isn’t overly tall, the run is still fairly short and easily made to look presentable.
With the glass back in place, it’s easy to fall in love with the Tecware Nexus M2. It’s a simple, stylish and very clean looking build. Not bad at all for such an affordable case!
