    Default NZXT H-440 Silent Mid-Tower Case

    I recently was given the opportunity to look at another offering from NZXT. If you follow my reviews, you will know that I am a fan of NZXT, and their H series in particular has become one that has sparked my interest. Over the past several years, NZXT has become one of the premier manufacturers of cases and peripheral. They seem to always think outside the box, and their innovative designs and features tend to be ahead of the pack. They are adept at targeting both the gaming and enthusiast arenas. Today will be looking at a new Mid-Tower chassis from NZXT. This one is the H-440 which is part of the coveted NZXT H Silent series of cases.

    For those familiar with the continuing legacy of the NZXT H Series line of cases, the new NZXT H-440 purports to bring all of the same sound-proofing/quiet operation capabilities as its three predecessors. This time, however, it also focused on a new arena. The new NZXT H-440 is not just centered on quiet performance but also on water cooling performance as well. The NZXT H-440 comes in two color choices, black with red trim, and white with black trim. Both the top and front fascia of the NZXT H-440 is a completely solid design with no door and no ODD 5.25 bays whatsoever. The NZXT H-440 has a smooth and simplistic design, meant to offer a clean, industrial aesthetic. Read on as we venture inside to see if it offers all the essentials you would want, including water cooling needs, and the hassle-free computing experience we have come to expect from NZXT.

    Great Job Vinny. I love the look of this case. I can see me building a wicked waco system in it. Awesome review!

    Great review Vinny!

    The main issue I can see a lot of people having with this case is the loss of most of your drive storage should you take advantage of the front rad mounting for a radiator. Less so is the fact that the sound dampening foam is thick enough that it eats decently into your cable management space, but there's that huge cavity behind the PSU cover so that's not a huge deal. Also, how did clearance look up front should you want to mount a top-mounted 360 along with a front 360? Seems like it might be a bit on the tight side.

    Its a bit tight but it will take two 360mm provided you face the top one toward the back of the case, and its a slim design.
    Though its tight I had no issues on the back side with cable management, provided you don't bunch them together with the 24 pin
    And yes you will loose all the HDD bays with two 360's but you have the top of the PSU shroud for 2 SSD and the floor for another HDD.

    And if you really want to get creative you can remove the back 140mm fan and mount another rad or possibly a pump and res combo there as well.

    and put the 240 up front to free up some drive bays

    or get creative and just mount a bunch of SSD's to the outside of the HDD cage as its hidden from view by the left side door!!

    Awesome review Vinny. 1 thing though Price is 119 not 129


    Also, you guys can stick a 3.5 or 2.5 drive on the bottom of the case. There are mounts from them there.

    I am really liking this case. NZXT did a fantastic design job with it. Good looking, and very functional for being so small.
