Today we have for you a review of the NZXT H2 Classic Silent Midtower Chassis. This case has some cool features for you like a hot-swappable HDD bay, USB 3.0, and fan control speed. On top of this there is the main selling feature, noise reduction. Gamers would agree that it is no small thing, noise reduction can lessen the distracting sounds a computer can make, freeing you to concentrate on your accuracy or strategy. Even casual computer users would agree that noises that computers make can be a major pain. So lets jump right in to the review to get a better look at the H2 Classic Chassis from NZXT.

Silent Midtower Chassis
NOISE – chaotic wavelengths that distract, distort, impede, confuse, and endanger the gamer during a life and death situation. If you are a professional gamer, avoid it at all cost. Intelligently constructed to give you peace of mind, NZXT’s H2 Classic Series Silent Midtower Chassis minimizes extraneous hums, clicks, whirls of your system to enhance your concentration, accuracy, and deadliness
I loved the tool-less design on the H2, it made for an easy installation. In fact putting the drives in was actually fun, taking off the fan with just a pinch and sliding it in and hearing that nice little click letting me know everything is safe, mmm that’s how it should be. That leads me to another nice thing about this case, the fans. It comes with three fans built in and a fan speed control on the chassis. A nice little touch that definitely adds to the design of the case overall. If you are concerned about the noise from the fans or the components of you rig the main feature of the NZXT H2 will help. All the sides are lined with noise dampening foam. I found that the foam did help with the noise which makes sense it being a silent case haha but, sometimes you come across a case that can’t keep its promises, certainly not the case with this chassis. Another super sweet feature is the hot-swappable drive bay on the top of the case, and its on the top, with a cover panel held by magnets. Very cool indeed. Final thing to note about the H2 is the aesthetics, it looks very nice with the brushed aluminium front panel that’s clean of any buttons, plus the top with the cool cover panels. The whole case has a clean but spiffy look to it that I for one quite enjoy.
So would I recommend it? Yeah totally. Its got great features, its quiet, and it looks great.
