[Techreport]Another NZXT H2 review

Choosing the right computer case is often the hardest and most subjective part of any system build. An enclosure can speak volumes about the person pressing the keys and bossing around the electrons within. It can tell you whether the operator fancies themselves a gamer, whether they value form over function, or if they simply don't care. Every now and then, a case comes along that seemingly plays all the right form-versus-function cards. Today, we'll be looking at just such a creation. The NZXT H2 Classic Silent has been diligently whirring away under my desk for two weeks now, and it's high time we broke it all down for you, to see what's what.

If I'm being honest, my brain tends to associate NZXT with funky, plastic-y, teen-gamer boxes that aren't really my style. Happily, NZXT has toned down raucous design cues with the H2 and created something that will draw more than a few comparisons to the Antec P180, which is more up my alley.

Frankly, I think it looks great.

When I saw the NZXT Phantom, I looked at their other cases, and this and the Whisper stuck out to me as 'not-so-flashy.' I usually don't like doors, but I like how the two lights are included in the front door and the shape not being a perfect rectangle.

I think when I have enough money to watercool my computer, I'll probably buy this case in white.
