5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: Tool-less drive installation that actually works. Each tray is also properly sized to attach a 2.5" drive. Enough space behind the motherboard tray to run cables. Power supply sits atop a vent, which helps with PSU temperature. Not silent, but very quiet.

Cons: The plastic drive trays feel a little flimsy, but that's probably just because they are very flexible. They can be a pain to insert into the case when they're empty, which really isn't a problem.

Adding additional fans requires special hardware. NZXT doesn't seem to provide a sufficient number of the strange, machine-screw looking things needed to attach two additional fans. I didn't contact support -- they might've sent more if I asked.

Other Thoughts: The front USB header is USB 3.0, and it cannot attach to older USB 2.0 headers on older motherboards.

3 out of 5 eggsEasy to setup and silent, until...

Pros: The case is really neat and easy to setup. Enough room to install the board. Cable management is easy too.
Enough room for HDD-SSD, and dvd drives.
No need for SSD adapter.

Cons: After 6 months, the case fan begin to make noise, kind of vibrating... Try to clean up but nothing change.

This noise is annoying !!!!

5 out of 5 eggsWorth It

Pros: Solid construction, good amount of room inside, solid look, spots for 2.5" drives, USB 3.0

Cons: Not sure if the noise dampening is really doing a whole lot, I could be wrong.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great case. I'm able to fit a capable graphics card in it, a Corsair liquid cooler (although it's ever-so-slightly a tight fit), and a couple of drives, one 3.5", the other 2.5" along with everything else. I like the door on the front, and I like the looks. The fans inside are quiet. They are comparable to Corsair SP120 quiet fans in terms of noise.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This case looks great. It has plenty of room for cable management and managed to fit my CM Hyper 212 Evo. Love the USB 3.0.

Cons: Hard drive bays seem flimsy.

Other Thoughts: This was a great case for my first build and is definitely going to stay with me for many upgrades.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy build. Solid case

Pros: Used it to upgrade an older case. No USB 2.0 ports so had to buy a USB 2.0 / 3.0 adapter cable for my older board. Lots of room for drives although the clips aren't the easiest to use. No dedicated 2.5" SSD slot. The front door is substantial and seemingly magnetically connects with the case at close.

Cons: Maybe not top of the line but with the discount I was happy

3 out of 5 eggsPass and get the cheaper model

Pros: quiet case, padded doors
mostly metal with 8 hard drive bays
CPU rear can be accessed to change heatsinks

Cons: I bought this case because it had 8 drive bays and looked to be a silent model case. However, the design has a few flaws. The biggest issue is the hard drives are accessed from the REAR door of the case. That's not too big a deal, but all the SATA cables and wiring must also go through the rear. It is pretty cramped and there was not much space back there to begin with. There really is no passage designed for cables to the drive area, you really just have to squish them in there and hope the rear door panel stays on.

Other Thoughts: The fan is pretty silent but the front door of the case is just a huge a piece of plastic slapped on in front of the fans. I'm sure this reduces cooling, but again, it is moderately silent. It has little screen dust filters but they are NOT removable. You literally have to open the case and pry the whole front panel off to clean them, why? I don't even know. It comes with 2 large fans that look nice, but there doesnt seem to be any speed controls. The fans are pretty weak and do not push much air so be sure to add a 3rd front fan.

If you need to run alot of hard drives look into a nicer case or something that is hot-swappable. Otherwise, go with the cheaper NZXT model since you can't really access the drives in this one easily and save some money. I also have an antec P182 which is why I bought this but the NZXT is far inferior in quality and accessibility. If you just need a little cheap case the NZXT 210 is probably what you are looking for.

2 out of 5 eggsNot good for a high end rig.

Pros: Looks nice, it had good cable management to it. Cheap

Cons: The hard drive mounts do not hold the drive securely. There is a lot of rattling noises coming from it. I wish they had just used screws instead of there slide out tray.
has a lake of air flow to the case. If you getting a high end gpu that puts out a lot of heat. then do not buy this case.

Other Thoughts: the case came with a dent on the back bottom edge next to the power supply. Not a big issue. I was still able to fit the psu in.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case with cable mgmt

Pros: I saw this white case being advertised on sale which caught my attention. After watching the youtube review I was pretty much sold. The sound absorbing material and cable management were all features I liked and my existing case didn't have. Move over Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer is awesome and totally sold me on the product review!

Cons: None for the sale price.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy install, nice look

Pros: Tool-free disk install was pretty good. Motherboard tray standoff holes are labelled for different board sizes. Comes with a neat tool to screw in standoffs. Just enough (barely enough, really) space behind the mobo tray to fit PSU cables. Looks nice!

Cons: Not a whole lot to say here -- front USB is 3.0 only, so you need to have a USB 3.0 header on your board.

Other Thoughts: It took me a while to decide on how to install the PSU in this case. Looking at the instructions, it really seemed like I was supposed to install the PSU upside-down (with the fan pointing downward, at the floor of the case). Turns out, there's venting on the bottom to enable precisely this. I'm not still not convinced I did it correctly, but everything is operating smoothly, including PSU temps.

1 out of 5 eggsI Really Wish It Would Have Worked

Pros: The case is very high quality and very easy to place parts in. It runs extremely cool with the two stock fans and gives ample room for a large graphics card. I really like the clean lines, but the usb and audio ports came defective.

Cons: After assembling my new computer I went to play some video games, and I noticed my headset wasn't working. I stopped playing and did some testing with other usb related devices and found the ports on top were not working. I then tried the audio ports and sure enough, they were dead too. I even tested my motherboard using a usb 3 and audio piece from my old case and because those worked, I concluded it was the case. I immediately emailed NZXT (dec 24th) and received a response saying that I should have a replacement part in a couple of weeks. That time frame passed and I got on their live chat and chatted with a nice rep explaining what had happened. They said they would send out a replacement part. I got a box from them a week later and it was the wrong part. I had to submit my invoice and serial number off of my case and I also said H230 case 20 times in my emails to support. I have no clue how the wrong part was sent. I emailed saying that I got the wrong part five days ago. I have not gotten a response back. A month of waiting is long enough.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to write a nice review for this product. I love the case but not having usb or audio ports on a gaming computer renders it almost useless. I wanted to give NZXT a chance to help me before writing a review. Their time is up and I feel that people interested in this case should know that it is a great case, but if there is a problem when it comes that they might be out of luck.
