NZXT Reveals H2 Classic Silent Chassis: Super Quiet, Super Sleek

One of the more serious issues with most full-size gaming towers is noise. Not really heat -- there's plenty of room for fans -- but those fans end up making a ton of noise. NZXT has just released their H2 Classic Silent chassis, which is one of the sleeker cases that we have seen. It provides a layer of noise dampening foam that keeps internal noise from escaping the chassis, and a magnetic fan cover on the top 140mm fan adds another element of silence, but can be removed if the user prefers to maximize cooling. 


Efficient airflow is further achieved with a unique 3 phase fan controller that allows enthusiasts to adjust speeds at 40%, 70%, and 100%.  The removable touch powered fan compartments are wireless so there’s no need to open the side panel to rummage through neatly managed cables behind the motherboard to remove the fan.  8 Front facing HDDs give H2 a thermal edge over other silent solutions on the market by enhancing natural airflow in the front of the case.


Additional innovative features of the H2 include a hot swap capable SATA HDD Dock with easy access from the top of the case.  As with every member of NZXT’s robust chassis lineup, H2 places a premium on cable management with 25mm of space behind the motherboard allowing for a clean build. It'll be available in black and white for $99.99, and if we knew we could keep the white one clean, we'd probably order three.

I just got a white NZXT Phantom case and the quality, style and features are excellent. This looks really nice and like it has some great features.

I like the simpleness of the case and not to bad price wise.

I have owned a few nzxt cases in the past and have loved them all. Very good cases at decent prices.

I really think NZXT is great they make quality cases, but there generally under or right at $100. You see a good bit of quality cases over the last couple of years, but for them to do it and keep the price point where they do it is very nice. With other case makers especially with there newer cases were looking at $200ish.

I like the white version ...and not because of the quiet performance, but because of the overall design. If I would buy it, I would mod it for it  to have a side intake fan. maybe two..

I really like this for a $100 mid tower. But I hope they come out with an H4 full tower version, for around $200. Something to rival like an atcs or pv193. A quality full tower with 360mm rad support and sound dampening for a good price- would sell like crazy.

nzxt has some quality products and this is just one added to the lineup. I agree though I would like to see a full tower version of this. The hot swap bay on top is a really cool idea too, especially in that price range. Good work. Oh and they have a full review at Legit Reviews in case anyone is interested.

The NZXT Phantom is a beautiful case and ranks up with with Thermaltakes Level 10, 1 and 2 and the Silverstone Raven but the H2 has an advantage in that it'll appeal to most consumers since its got a deadly sleek, sexy clean finish and look to it and is something that would look excellent in an office setting compared to most other flashy enthusiast cases
