5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case, Excellent Service

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, Matte BLK/Orange

Pros: -Solid construction
-Attractive design
-Easy to work in

Cons: -Side panels difficult to remove and replace
-Plastic window side panel feels and looks cheap

Other Thoughts: Bought the H440 while looking for something that I could grow into. The stealth-bomber-meets-plastic-light-up-toaster-oven aesthetic of most other cases was a deal breaker for me, and laying eyes on the sleek and (relatively) minimalist design of this case was a very welcome change. Finding out that the case eschews a slot for an optical drive was another big attraction as I have not put a disc into a computer for at least the last five years.
Upon receipt the case was well packaged and in good condition. Once I wrenched the doors off working within the case was simple and user friendly. I found myself very satisfied with the build but wishing that I could replace the windowed side panel with a second solid one. Personally, being able to see how much money I've wasted on a computer is not something I want to be able to see, let alone let others see. Also, having a second insulated side panel would surely help reduce noise further . So I looked around for a spare unit and eventually contacted NZXT support to see if I could order one. To my suprise they promptly sent me one no questions asked. I was and still am impressed.
If you find yourself wanting this case but in a different color combination than the half dozen or so offered then you should know that painting the plastic accents is a fairly painless endevour. The steel plating is easily sepparated from the plastic shell. My case is now a nice black-on-black void that meets all of the original requirements I couldn't quite find in any other case.
The NZXT H440 is a great case to grow into and make your own, and NZXT is there to help you.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate "Exactly What I was Hoping for"

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, Matte BLK/Orange

Pros: Still the amazing "soft-touch" kind of black matte paint and orange accents. It's just stunning.
Still the great compartmentalization that comes with the psu shroud and hidden drive brackets.
Still the ample tie-down points for cable management.
Still has a 10 fan hub (that I don't use but still a nice touch).
Still extremely quiet and offers adequate airflow.

Cons: Here's where my update comes into play. Cable management at the back has run into some minor hiccups where having an extra cm of space at the back would certainly help. Still I am able to close the side panel easily and securely without bowing of any kind, but i had to remap some of the cables because there just isn't quite enough space. adding cable extensions was not necessary as a mod, but still matches the orange perfectly.

Other Thoughts: This case is quite spacious to work in, don't get me wrong. But just 1cm of extra would have made it even better. I'm not taking off an egg for it, because with patience you can still route and secure all your cables and close the panel quite easily. But patience really is the key factor to this case. It is easy to build in but in every other way imaginable.
Build:
i5 4690K
Gigabyte SOC Z97 Motherboard
16 GB ram (2x4 G skill ares orange and 2x4 g skill ripjaws x red)
120GB samsung SSD with 1tb Seagate HDD
SapphireTri X R9 280X
Noctua NH-U12S CPU cooler (using EKWB 120mm static pressure fan)

5 out of 5 eggsNZXT H440

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, Matte BLK/Orange

Pros: This thing looks amazing, especially with the window and the orange and black theme. It feels very sturdy, the paint is even and feels nice (it almost has that soft touch feel like the back of some smart phones) and the PSU shroud, hidden drive bays and excellent cable management make for a great look.The CPU cutout made it very easy to install even a large CPU cooler like the PH-TC14PE and there is certainly more than enough room in here for extensive watercooling should I decide I want to go that route. The space between drive bays makes for great airflow even with several HDDs installed, but I took them out to make it just that much better (I'm currently running everything on my 500GB 850 EVO). Noise is another area where this case does well, as the sound dampening material and the placement of the vents prevent the user from hearing most noises inside the case. Even with the case sitting at ear level I can barely hear the fans in my Tri-X 290 over speakers set at a very low volume.

Cons: There are a few minor flaws with this case. The placement of the SSD plates on top of the PSU shroud could be better, as the cable next to the power connector from my Seasonic X-850 had to be bent slightly to make it work. Having a cutout directly below the edge of the SSD mounting plate would fix this issue.

Lack of an optical drive bay is another issue that has been noted by several reviewers as well as many users. I personally only needed one to install Windows but someone who frequently needs an optical drive should either look into external drives or find another case.

The only other issue I had with this case is that the side panel behind the motherboard mounting plate can be hard to take on and off because of the sound dampening material. I understand that this is already a large case, but making it a centimeter or two wider to give more cable management room and make taking the side panel off easier couldn't have been too hard.

Other Thoughts: If I could have given 4.5 eggs I would have, but I'll round up because it's still a great case. A fan controller might have been nice, but the fans are quiet enough that it isn't really an issue. Also, because of the placement of the PSU you'll need to hook up any modular connectors before you install it into the case. It's very difficult to hook those up once the PSU is in the case.

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, Matte BLK/Orange

Pros: Orange, well built, lots of fans, nice led in the back for connection visibility (with switch), lots of room, did I mention lots of room. Built-in fans move lots of air and are quiet.

Cons: Orange is too glossy (should be a little flatter). Be careful with the black painted surfaces, they chip a little too easy.

Other Thoughts: remember this does not have any 5.25 bays or front access. great case for a modern build.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I was hoping for

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, Matte BLK/Orange

Pros: Extremely sturdy and well made frame and panels.
Noise dampening material is secured firmly and offers outstanding noise reduction.
No blemishes or scratches/chips in the paint, and the window is pristine.
Power and reset buttons give a very satisfying "click*when pressed down, and oder enough resistance that accidental presses are extremely unlikely.
Cable management was doable and made tolerable by the extraordinary amount of tie down points as well as the bottom nook beneath the shroud.
Drive caddies are sturdy and hold drives securely with rubber grommets to reduce vibration; a very nice touch.
Radiator support is outstanding, though my personal system is air cooled, I have no doubt if ever I switch that it will be an easy install.
Many grommeted routing points for cables makes for a very clean looking system.
Tall case feet allow it to get fresh air from underneath even if it were on carpet.
Dustproof on all intakes with easy to clean filters.
Captive thumb screws means no more losing pieces.

Cons: Airflow is restricted due to small vents and the noise dampening material.
There is a significant lack of space behind the motherboard for closing your back panel which could cause issues with cable management.
There are only 7 PCIE expansion slots in the back; so if you're planning Quad graphics, don't.

5 out of 5 eggsSilent and Sexy

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, Matte BLK/Orange

Pros: Such a sexy case
No optical drive bays (plus for me as I haven't used one for years and the bays are just a waste of space for me)
Tons of noise dampening material throughout
Comes with 3 intake 120mm fans front and 1 140mm exhaust fan rear
More than plenty of space for cable management with lots of tie down areas
Did I mention how sexy it is?

Cons: Wish it included either 3 120mm or 2 140mm exhaust fans top, but I purchased them separately cheap enough so no egg-knock for that

Other Thoughts: My Build:
NZXT H440 Case
Intel Core i7-4790K CPU + Zalman 9900 Max CPU Cooler
GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-Gaming 5 mobo
16GB G.SKILL Trident X DDR3 1600 CL7 RAM

2x GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GeForce GTX 970 GPUs

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case I Have Ever Owned

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, Matte BLK/Orange

Pros: +Beautiful
+Feature rich, but understaed
+included fans quiet but effective
+water cooling friendly
+all required hardware included
+SSD Mounts are very good looking, and highly functional
+Hidden wires
+hidden bottom mounted power supply location
+USB2.0 and 3.0 case ports
+No wasted bays for optical drives
+lighted rear ports
+tool-less case covers and bays
+superb fit and finish
+excellent sound deadening materials
+great airflow

Cons: -space in back very tight for wires, hard to place back side panel
-Window very easily scratched, but clear and clean when new
-Packing material sub-par (although mine was lucky)
-top and side covers very tight friction fit. would like magnetic
-Side covers use slide-on method. can be tricky

Other Thoughts: This case has far more positives than any negatives for me. I used a 240mm radiator in top for CPU cooling (Enermax Liqtech)
the whole process was smooth and very easy. The only rub I have is the side cover for the backside of the mainboard area is too tight this is because of the included sound dampening materiel, and the wires have to be smashed a bit to make it slide back on. This would not be an issue if the covers had a pivoting "hinge" action instead of the very tight slide hooks.
The captures thumb screws are awesome, and the case looks stunning. The lack of optical drive bays is a huge plus for me as they are old tech. Pick a color and go for this case!

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely amazing.

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, Matte BLK/Orange

Pros: Unparallelled Cable Management
3 - 120mm front panel case fans
1 - 140mm rear fan
Interior Sound deadening foam
Rear I/O panel LED is a small but nice touch
Fit and finish are fantastic

Cons: There are only a couple things that I can legitimately complain about..
The pre-installed motherboard standoffs are unnecessarily hard to remove, and feel like you're stripping threads.
The removable top and front panels are also pretty hard to remove. You will feel like you're about to break one or more of the retainers, but none of them broke for me. I guess this is better than them coming off all the time with no effort at all, though..?

Other Thoughts: This case was bought for my Wife's first build. The entire time we were putting it together, I couldn't get over how pleasant this case was to work with. I'll likely be getting the Black/Blue one for myself in the very near future to replace my stupid, ancient Lian Li full tower.
