TechSpot: NZXT H440 Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Setting out to improve on the H230 and H630, NZXT recently updated its silent chassis range with a new mid-tower that touts a redesigned interior, next-gen FN V2 fans and better aesthetics. Some great ideas have gone into the H440, notably the decision to drop old-fashioned 5.25" drive bays to use the space for other hardware, a move we're interested in seeing others make.

Typically, cases designed with the goal of being silent have been bland looking. The Antec P100is a fine example of a case that dampens noise, yet is boring to look at and uninspiring to work with. The H440 tackles this in several ways while still keeping a clean look. Along with a window to jazz things up, the H440 comes in your choice of white, red, orange, blue or green accents.

Regardless of color, you'll pay $120 for the H440. That's double the $60 an H230 would set you back and not far off the NZXT H630 ultra tower, but not shocking either considering this is a no compromise mid-tower.

NZXT products are in general poor quality. I had H2 case and the whole case fell apart in just 1 year of use. I mean literally. The header wires frayed, the front cover door came off. The rubber grommets inside to hold wires lost their rigidity. Even the CPU fan I got had its rubber strings loose strength after 6 months. So it couldnt hold the fans around the CPU heatsink. Rant over. But please read public reviews on amazon, newegg or flipkart before buying NZXT products.

Hello,

An interesting idea, but I'm not sure if I would be willing to give up on having a 5.25" drive just yet.
