There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
iv noticed a low toned, but load hum from my case, at first i thought this was the stock CPU cooled, i replaced that now i notice its the glass itself slightly wiggling again the top of the case. the top of the case is cheap and very wobbly, it comes down to rest on the top of the glass. this would not a issue with other cases that have the 4 corner mounting for the glass, but this case had s single screw to hold the panel in place in the top back corner. this gives it allot of freedom and so it hums. i "fixed" the problem by folding a small cloth on the top of the front top corner of the glass and closing the cloth in the case so less vibration happens.
contacted the company, they don't seem to care to much and give me the run around for two weeks. but that does not bug me much, i would not use their fan controller again even if they replaced it with a working 1. so i original review stands. get the Non "I" model for cheaper, and buy some different led strips if u really wanted the light effects. the light controller included with the included led strips are not that great anyway, and have very few effects. worst is that both use a special plug in to work that u can only find with nzxt, so u are trapped using only their led OVERPRICED led lights. best to go els where unless u can get it on sell or clearance, then just don't plug ur fans into it.
The last time I built a PC, companies were just starting to get away from the ugly box designs with silver unpainted interiors, and it was pretty difficult to get a stylish case for under $200, and at that high price point you were pretty much paying for the ability to actually manage your cables with rubber grommets and the like. So I was a little discouraged when I found this case and liked it, but realized it was only $100. I assumed it was probably low quality when compared to the other NZXT offerings, but I didn't really like anything else I found, so I decided to pull the trigger and send it back if it was a piece of junk.
Fortunately, this has been the best case I've ever owned, and I was amazed at how easy it was to build in.
- Build Quality -
I'm pretty used to sharp edges, unpainted interiors, and unintuitive design choices. Even older Corsair cases, which I felt were superior in the "ease of building" department, are a joke in comparison to how great this case was.
I was worried that this case would be a bit wobbly when you took off the side panels, and I'm happy to report that it's very solid. The interior paint job is perfect, and the matte finish is actually really nice, and the case lights are perfectly placed and don't cast light cones on the glass (unless you turn them all the way up). Overall it's a great case in terms of quality.
- Building Experience -
There are slots and holes in every possible place that you could run a cable, and the backside has velcro straps and routing channels for your cables. I barely even had to try to manage my cables, and it looked better than my old Corsair 600t did after an hour of zip tying, tucking, and weaving. The back panel shut effortlessly.
The bottom part of the chassis being sectioned off was a genius design choice, because I can stuff cables in there without caring what it looks like, and often contains the most cables if you don't have a modular PSU.
I was able to put my Kraken cooler, and my 1080 ti Hybrid radiator easily within the case, with plenty of room. The airflow is perfectly fine, and both of those items stay around 26C when idling. Wonderful case, I'm nothing but happy with it.
- CAM Software -
Surprisingly, I really like the CAM software. I think in the early days of the case release it was probably pretty rocky, but for me now it worked flawlessly. I enjoy the UI and the temp monitoring, and I can easily change my fan speeds if needed. I don't let it use the fan curve where it "learns" or whatever, I just set it to quiet and turn it to performance if needed. It's that simple.
Overall, I really loved building my PC in this case, and I'm so impressed at the quality for $100.
Top international reviews
The stock fan configuration works well than I expected.
Each and every part of the cabinet is well thought and designed.
The cable management is excellent.
The only downside that I would say is its thumbscrews. Its very hard to turn and sometimes I kinda thought that it was stuck there. I did a humungous effort to unscrew the thumbscrews which are for mounting theGPU vertically.
The indication light around the power switch is delayed to show up by two three seconds after the power switch is on.
Other than its thumbscrew, I would say it is almost what I desired for.
If you don't care about vertically mounted video cards, or your video card is not two slots wide, or the fans do not draw from the front side then this case is awesome.
Compré la version con el controlador, el cual solo uso para los leds, ya que cuento con un fan hub y ventiladores pwm que puse de mi otro gabinete, no soy de mucha luz, pero me agradan las opciones de control.
Las temperaturas son decentes, hay reviews que mencionan que hay mejor control con solo los ventiladores posteriores como salida, sin embargo en mi caso particular tengo mejores temperaturas poniendo dos ventiladores adicioales al frente.
La tapa lateral de cristal es fácil de retirar y colocar, de hecho es una de sus mejores caractrísticas a mi parecer.
Los materiales son de primera calidad, el armado es robusto y los terminados son de primera calidad.
Functionality: This case was a dream to build in. There are tons of little ports and access holes for routing, a PSU shroud and cable bar to hide cabling, and lots of ties and eyes for zips. The 2x120mm radiator was easy to install. The fan controller is nice to have.
Performance: The case keeps my system reasonably cool for such a compact case with a closed front panel. No complaints here whatsoever. The case is relatively quiet with good fan profiles set up, and I can't hear my Corsair pump through the glass.
Software: this is the only knock I have against the case. I'm not a fan at all of the CAM software. It loads slowly, isn't very well featured, requires sign-in, and sends a lot of data (no opt out). If I could go back I would I have gotten the h500 with a corsair commander for fan control and RGB.
Value/Overall: This is a beautiful and inexpensive case that is a dream to build in. The software is lackluster, but it's an overall great product and worth your money.
Para armar, el case está muy bien diseñado, con filtros en prácticamente todas las tomas de aire, un buen sistema de enrutamiento de cables con agujeros en los lugares correctos y dos ventiladores de salida que protegen muy bien al CPU del polvo (aunque no así a la tarjeta de video).
Tiene la opción de montar un disipador de enfriamiento liquido de 240mm en la parte frontal con cual se podría completa el circuito de aire con dos de entrada y dos de salida para un flujo balanceado.
Los materiales son resistentes y de buena presentación y tiene los stand offs para la motherboard previamente instalados, además de tornillos de sobra. En general lo recomiendo ampliamente. Para mí, de los mejores cases que hay sin gastarse una fortuna.
120mm fans included!
RGB LED strips included!
Excellent cable management
Has a vertical GPU mounting configuration you so can flex on people
Lots of air flow
Tempered glass panel with extremely simple removal mechanism
Super clean looking case
There is just too much value you are getting at this price point. There is a reason this is one of the best recommended cases for 2018 and 2019.
FYI if you are vertically mounting your GPU you will need to purchase a PCI-E riser cable for around $20.
Recomiendo mucho que instalen un Kraken X62 por que quedan perfectos juntos, el radiador de 280mm queda al frente en este modelo ya que solo tiene espacio de 140mm arriba.
Si desean poner ventiladores RGB compren los de la misma marca junto con su HUB por que el que viene incluido en este gabinete es solo para las tiras LED de lo contrario no podrán sincronizar los colores con el software CAM que es exclusivo para esta marca, ya que no funcionara con AURA o equivalentes.
Es bonito, minimalista, barato y de excelente calidad.
La rejilla magnética en la parte superior es muy práctica y el espacio en la parte inferior es muy amplio.
El único problema que tuve fue que la tapa trasera tiene muy poco espacio para esconder los cables. Fuera de eso, es precioso.
Note: My GPU is the ROG-STRIX-RTX2080TI-A11G, this is a 2.7 slot, 3 fan GPU
Vertical GPU mount clearance is not enough to support a 2 slot+ GPU - This is a major problem as most GPUs take up between 2 to 3 slots these days. In a hypothetical world where the card wouldn't overheat from lack of ventilation, The glass plating can't be placed with a 2.7 slot card. Also there isn't a way to secure the bottom of the card in the vertical mount, making it feel flimsy for heavier cards.
Mounting a 3 fan GPU card horizontally can run into spacing issues with the vertical bar to hide cables. I had to push harder than I would've liked to make the card fit.
I'm liquid cooling my CPU, the CPU runs 5 degrees warmer when the radiator is mounted in the front vs having it outside of the case. I assume this is because the front panel is solid and the fans aren't able to pull enough air from the opening in the back. I balanced this by installing a second set of fans to create a push pull system. I suspect the CPU would still run cooler if I tested it a second time with the radiator outside of the case.
The instructions for installing components into the case are exceptionally poor. For instance there's a note for two different kinds of screws, one is 5mm the other is 6mm, however there's only one bag for those screws and they're all the same. This causes confusion.
The good parts of this case:
It's relatively easy to make a clean looking build. There's lots of areas to route wires and velcro them in place.
I like how the SSDs can be mounted, just wish it came with more than 2 mounts.
With the exclusion of some screws having some threading issues, it's a high build quality and looks nice.
