INTERIOR

The H440's internal construction is fairly solid. The metal used is of reasonable thickness and the motherboard tray, hard drive area, and power supply compartment are riveted to one another, providing good overall structural integrity. The most noticeable aspect of the interior is the extensive amount of cabling used to connect all the fans to the fan hub and power the lighting effects.


The top and front panels come off with a firm tug. Underneath, there are three 120 mm intake fans and a removable mesh dust filter.


The top panel covers two/three 140/120 mm fan positions on the case ceiling. Both panels are lined with the same foam as the side panels.


The internal layout is relatively traditional except for the bottom as the power supply is segregated from the rest of the case. This cover helps thermally isolate the position and also hides all the power cables from view.


A pair of 2.5-inch drives can be installed above the power supply. The drive trays use a bayonet style mounting system but they're surprisingly loose. It's not a tight fight and the single thumbscrew used to complete installation does little to immobilize the position.


The edge of the motherboard tray is angled outward, giving a bit more room behind it for cables going through the larger routing holes on the side.


A myriad of wires snake their way around the perimeter of the motherboard tray but there are many points for tying down cables. 3.5-inch drives can be installed on this side using drive sleds with a pair of captive thumbscrews.


The fan hub at the back can run up to 10 fans but offers no form of fan control. It's powered by a 3-pin header running off an adapter that uses the 12V line of a 4-pin molex power supply connector.


The 5V line of that same connector powers a circuit near the top of the case that provides lighting at the rear of the case and on the power supply cover.
