NZXT H2 Classic Black Review

The front of NZXT's H2 is simple, elegant and therefore timeless. As soon as you open the front door you'll see an acoustic insulation mat, helping to reduce unwanted noise. In the top part of the front one can see three 5.25'' bays and below those you find two 120 millimeter fans, which have been mounted in an interchangeable frame with integrated dust filter. On the left and right hand side of the two retention frames there are small flaps, which make it possible to remove the fans. Once the fans are removed, one can see, that there are copper contacts on the case as well as on the retention frame. This enables a user to remove the fans without detaching its power cable. Should you now be concerned, that you might not be able to put other fans into the retention frames, we can tell that there are 3-pin connectors which allow you to put other fans into the retention frame.


Turning the case around and looking at it from the backside, we can se that NZXT placed the power supply in the bottom area of the case, which is against the ATX standard. But in our opinion placing the PSU in the bottom area of the case makes a lot of sense since wiring the case becomes easier and in the end you get an optimized air flow. Right behind the CPU cooler there is a pre-installed 120 millimeter fan, which has been connected to the three-step fan controller the NZXT H2 ships with. Below the fan on the right hand side there are two rubber grommets, preparing this case for installing a water cooling. Last but not least there are seven slot bezels. The fact that there are seven of these means, that it's not possible to install a dual slot graphics cards in the last expansion slot of a motherboard. In this regard we also have to mention that it's highly unlikely, that you might do so. Usually populating the last expansion slot means, that you have a quad SLI setup and once this is the case, you might choose a case which is optimized for a high airflow and not a silent case like the one here.
