NZXT is one of the hottest PC enthusiast brands, thanks in no small part to a slew of stylish products with user-friendly selling points. At SPCR, the company has two distinct accomplishments. This past year, their Kraken X61 all-in-one liquid cooler became the first such unit to receive our recommendation. And more notably, our editor Mike Chin, uses an NZXT H2 case (only slightly modified) to house his main desktop system. Today, I'm looking at one of their most popular tower cases. The H440 offers an intriguing blend of aesthetics, features, and conveniences.

The NZXT H440 (red version).

The H440 is a steel case. The front and top portions are composed of thick plastic that imbues the case with a solid look and feel. The most noticeable aspect of this tower is its complete lack of 5.25-inch bays. Over time, tower cases have shed 5.25-inch drive placements as users have increasingly moved away from optical media, but the H440 is one of the rare few that have done away with them completely. Without this, there's no reason for a door, so it adopts a completely solid front face.

Peering through the side window, you'll find that the power supply is housed in its own compartment that covers the entire bottom section, hiding the output cabling. Inside, the H440 is stocked with four fans connected to a hub that can power up to 10 in total, but the overall design actually doesn't place an emphasis on airflow. Upon closer inspection the amount of ventilation offered is limited, more befitting a classic quiet model rather than an enthusiast chassis.


The H440 doesn't offer much in the way of extras. Included is an assembly guide, a case badge, screws, and generous allotment of zip-ties.

Up to six 3.5-inch drives are supported as well as a pair of 2.5-inch drives and clearances for the CPU heatsink and video card are ample. The case is available in black with four different trim colors (red, orange, green, and blue) and there is a white model with black accents. They have also teamed up with the gaming system/accessory maker Razer for a slightly different Razer-branded H440.
