NZXT Lexa S Testing and Installation:

The installation and testing section of any case review is pretty straight-forward, we install a system into the case and see how it goes.

One of the features of the Lexa S is the cable management, and as you will be able to see in the next couple of pictures, it works pretty well and helps reduce cable clutter. Especially when you have a window in the side of your case you are probably going to want to take a little extra care in trying to make things nice and neat, and the Lexa S makes that easy.

Thanks to the cable management of the Lexa S most of the cable clutter is in the rear of the case where you can't see it, as you can see in the picture below (left).

In the next set of pictures (right) you can see there is a square hole in the motherboard tray, which might not seem like a big deal, but it allows you to install an aftermarket cooler that requires a back bracket without having to remove your motherboard, which is a great feature for anyone who thinks they might want to upgrade their cooling solution in the future.

So there we go, we've got the system installed and it all worked like advertised and looks relatively neat. For our installation we used the NZXT Performance Power 800 Watt power supply (reviewed here) which is not a modular power supply so we ended up with a little extra cable clutter. If you wanted an even cleaner look you could pick yourself up a nice modular power supply and clean things up even more.
