2 out of 5 eggsGood case, but NZXT needs to tread carefully

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: Build Quality - This case is the heaviest Mid Tower I have ever owned. Solid steel construction. The color white they have used is extremely pure. No yellow hint anywhere. The rubber grommets wont fall out easily (Like they did on my Phantom 410).

Fan Filters - They catch about everything except for the finest dust particles. They feel like they are very well made.

SSD Trays - I personally like the placement, and I know some dont. Make sure your PSU has a straight SATA Connector on the end or you may have to angle the tray up slightly to avoid putting to much strain on the connector.

Water Cooling Support - While Water Cooling is not my thing personally, This case can support most everything on the market pretty well from what I have seen.

Cons: Front Panel Audio Connectors -

I know a lot of audio enthusiasts will dare not use these, but the amount of cross talk between the Microphone and Headset jacks is absolutely unacceptable. The person on the other end can hear everything that is being sent through the front headphone connector. Plugging in through the rear IO or another PC's front audio inputs doesn't have this issue. I've owned extremely cheap audio equipment that has never had this problem.

Temperatures -

My temps across everything has rose around 4C since using this case. Might want to take this into account if you overclock. Everything in my system is cooled with air, So I didn't expect to be blow away

NZXT Customer Support - Please read

The Original H440 had an issue with the LED in the PSU shroud going out prematurely. NZXT has claimed that they fixed this issue, But I was sent one the revisions that has said issue. Simply submit a ticket and they will sort it out for you...... My case also shipped without motherboard screws. NONE! ZERO!

I have had a ticket open with NZXT Support now for 18 days and have yet to be sent a replacement LED and Motherboard screws. They have not even provided a tracking number so that tells me they have yet to ship anything.

I was hesitate about posting a review about this case until these issues were solved but I think 18 days is MORE THAN ENOUGH time.

I doubt Ill be buying an NZXT product again. And this is coming from a loyal customer.

Other Thoughts: This case is made extremely well. But NZXT needs to step up their game when it comes to the electronics included in this case and their customer support. I want to know a company will back their products, and If they wont, then I will be taking my business elsewhere.

If you don't have to deal with customer support, then I would give this review a 4-5 eggs

Now Im just waiting to see if the included fan hub goes out in a months time........

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: Super slick case! Goes perfectly with my Das Keyboard.

This is my first "modern" case with things like dust filters, fan power hubs, and legs + bottom mounted PSU.

1. Case feels super solid, nice window, PSU is hidden. Awesome places to mount 2.5" drives.

2. Very minimal but super effective lighting, The NZXT logo lights up to look sexy, but also there's a light shining down the input area of your motherboard and GPU in the back, allowing you to plug things into the PC in the dark and see exactly where everything goes. I was so impressed when I realized this.

3. Fans everywhere. Awesome fan power hub for adding more. I added 3 to the top and even while running intense programs my rig is staying cool.

4. Cable management city. The inside of my case looks better than all of my friends' cases. Absolutely beautiful design.

Cons: 1. Didn't come with a beautiful woman but the case is beautiful enough.

2. I went with 120mm fans for the top and there's this gap where the 200mm fans would fit but is open with the 120mm that very slightly bothers me. I don't know how to design it to where the gap would have some flappy deal where you can remove it, or have the flap for 120mm fans. Anyway, very silly con.

Other Thoughts: This is a case with class, like when you see someone in a suit actually tailored for them. This case is for the gentleman or lady looking for a slick, professional, minimalist looking PC, and not some ostentatious light show of a setup.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but NOT silent

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: Far better looking in person -

Best looking case on the market imo, even my very non-nerdy family couldn't get over how cool it looked with the lights out, I mean it's awesome! The only comparable cases to the niceness is the Graphite Series 780T by Corsair - they both look really expensive, high end even though the prices are reasonable.

- Closest thing most will get to a custom case

Custom as in very professional, ultra-modern, sleek, impressive, unique. I totally started to get out of caring about how my PC looked, now I'm as excited as I was when I built my first PC.

- Very durable

Most cases (even $100) are very flimsy. This one is good build. Certain areas ie where fans are could be a bit thicker but that's okay, the outside shell is what counts

Cons: - Fans aren't good

The fans it comes with truly do need to be tossed out. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT justify the cost of this case by adding up fans like I did.. I'm replacing all of them. They aren't terrible but they aren't great and certainly add to the noise... my free Corsair fans that came with my water cooler are far more quiet.

- Lighting wears out quickly.

I have a friend that had his turned on for a few hours every day for about a month and it's already out where the NZXT is.

- Terrible customer service

That isn't a joke if you see other people complaining. I truly cannot love a company if their is no support. There is support, you just will go through hell and back.

- Temps do go up

You must accept this if you're getting a case like this that doesn't have an open grill. That should be common knowledge to most people though, I mean if the fans have very little space to suck in air then clearly it'll run more hot. Invest in fans, I'm talking about the 5 star, 140mm powerful fans. You'll thank yourself plus they last forever.

- Where SD cards go

It'd be nice if they made it look better if you only own one.

Other Thoughts: Pro Tip:

Wanna cover up the holes over the power supply cover? Use the hard drive mounts underneath! It works perfectly, same white with same metal.. just make sure to use Duck Tape so it comes off clean years later.

Final Thoughts:

If customer service were better, the lights didn't go out so soon, and the fans didn't stink - I'd give 5 stars. The light where NZXT really is a bummer but with some practice it can be replaced.

I'm buying a second White one for my HTPC - I love it that much!

5 out of 5 eggsNEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: Extremely well designed layout of drive bays, cable routing options, and fan plugin.

This case is beautiful, and even more so when lit up.

The build quality is OUTSTANDING. Strong steel, actual thumb tightened screws to hold just about everything into place.

Was using a Rosewill CHALLENGER while waiting for this to come out. Can't even coherently explain the differences and the difference.

Case stays relatively cool. Idle temps on my i5 hovers around 34C. Under full load CPU is 60C. Both are air cooled only, added two additional fans to the top of the cage to assist with the air flow, helps immensely.

Cons: None at this point.

Other Thoughts: Had an issue with the USB 3.0 / 2.0 ports on top not holidng a solid charge. Contacted NZXT support about the issue, they resolved it immediately and sent a replacement piece out to me ASAP. For that, NZXT, you have earned my business well into the future. Great products, great support team, great company.

5 out of 5 eggsWhite! No Optical drive is a plus.

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: No optical drive.
6x trays for both 2.5/3.5 drives.
Top USB plugs (hate front/side plugs)
Fan hub for extra fans.
Fairly silent.
Fits R9 290x
All metal and white is good color scheme.

Cons: Non-window side panel could have more room for cable routing.
Airflow could be better through front with either mesh front or wider spacing of front panel.
Grommets tend to be pulled out for cable routing but you can push em back in to place.

Other Thoughts: I didn't expect airflow to be perfect with this case. It isn't but it's definitely better than most. I run an R9 290x and it still keeps it cool enough for me.

Excellent build materials.

Overall I would suggest this case for sure.

4 out of 5 eggsBeatiful Case, wish it had better airflow

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: The most beautiful case I have ever seen and its well build and sturdy. Very minimalistic design which is how I like it. The PSU cover and window are nice added bonus. I also like the lighting

Cons: The window scratches very easily and is made out of a thin plastic. I wish that this case had better airflow. When I take the top and front cover off my temps drop by 12 degrees Celsius.

Other Thoughts: I love the case but because of the high temps I usually play games with the front and top cover off because I don't like how high my temps go. 52 degrees with a corsair H110 drops to 40 with the covers off. It would be nice if they sold different covers - like ones with grills on them. If the airflow was better this would be a 5 out of 5

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: Sturdy. Good air flow and easy to work with design. Power supply is installs on the bottom of the case. The case screws are kind of hidden in a white box inside the hdd bays, so don't panic if you can't find them right away. Despite having ~5 case fans, it is practically silent. Looks nice.

Cons: It's sort of heavy, due to being composed of almost all steel. Not really a bad thing, but also not super portable or anything as a result.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat except for one hitch...

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: This is a very sleek, quiet cases that looks great. One of the best looking I've seen. Cable management is a little tight but doable. The PSU sleeve is a nice touch as well as the USB light in the back.

Cons: I've had this case for a few weeks and unfortunately it seems the fan controller in the back died. This case is so quiet I didn't notice until today (they had been working just fine). Thankfully, I noticed the top radiator was very warm to the touch and when I opened the case I saw that NONE of the case fans or radiator fans were working anymore. They were all plugged into the fan controller in the back, and when I plugged the radiator fans into the motherboard they worked just fine. Tried restarting, resetting BIOS settings to default and nothing fixed it. Very disappointing, especially since this is the first item I'll have to RMA on Newegg :(.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for 1st build

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: Very spacious
Great cable management
Very customizable

Cons: No space for optical disc drive, but not a big deal these days

Other Thoughts: I just wanted to throw this out there for 1st builders who plan on using this case. You cannot place an optical disc drive in this case; therefore, you will have to buy an external one if you desire or you will have to install windows via usb.

If you buy the OEM version of windows, the guide on how to do this will not work because you cannot use the OEM product key with a direct download from Windows website. You will need to create an ISO file of you Windows disc from a program of your choosing, on a separate computer with a disc drive, then use the windows tool to place it on a usb drive.

Just a helpful hint that will save you some time.

4 out of 5 eggsNice and Small

This review is from: NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid Tower Case. Next Generation 5.25-less Design. Include 4 x 2nd Gen FNv2 Fans, High-End WC support, USB3.0, White/Black

Pros: I caved and got this case because it looked cool, and it indeed does look cool. I like this case because it's small but packs a lot of features, and is very stylish. It had everything I needed. Fits two 2.5 drives on top of the PSU casing, and has five 3.5 drive bays (which have plenty of room around them).

The main PCI-E 16 splits on my board (attaches to the 2nd and 3rd expansion slot) fits right between two 3.5 drive bays. My GIGIBYTE 970 fits int he case just snug. Installed it pretty much expands across the entire case just up to, but does not intrude, the 3.5 inch drive bays. Even if it needed to extend into the drive, there is plenty of room, and removing the slot is not necessary. However, if you were to have a 3.5 inch drive the card would probably just touch.

The Corsair H105 fits in the case and I had no issues installing it. However, as some have said, hair flow for this case may be a problem. See cons.

Overall cable management is too bad. There are a lot of ways from the back to difference places on the motherboard which means it easy to not have a lot of cables running around.

There definitely is not a lot of room due to the foam on the back panel which means you really have to take your time and lay things out nicely.

I haven't put the sidings back on but even with it fully opened it's pretty quiet. It' definitely a compact build. My motherboard fits in it just perfectly. Really no room whats so ever which is fine.

Cons: Overall I enjoyed installing into this case. However, there are a few things that are really annoying to deal with.

Being that the PSU is inside of a casing, having a modular PSU means it's really difficult to attach cables. I had to attach the tables before mounting. Which means now that I have everything wired up, if I wanted to remove the PSU I would have to squeeze my hand into the PSU bay, or remove all the power cables. There is a lot of room for stuffing cables though.

The 2.5 drive mounts on top of the PSU casing will require special cabling due to most PSU providing angled SATA power cables (BitFenix BFA-MSC-MM45KK-RP should address this issue, just ordered a set).

I have yet to attach the panels back onto this case, removing them is required for installing the water cooling unit. I'm not sure how well everything will perform under high load due to the restricted airflow. There really isn't a lot of intake space.

Other Thoughts: * Intel Core i7-4790K
* GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK
* SeaSonic X Series X-850
* GIGABYTE GV-N970WF3OC-4GD
* CORSAIR Hydro Series H105
