I agree. The last piece I used was about 1/8" or so. They cut it to my measurements and did an edge thing so it wasn't sharp. If I remember correctly, the whole thing cost $40.

Radeon HD 6850, wish it was a reference GTX980 smile.gif

I custom sleeved a lot of fan cables, molex adaptors and the lot, but the PSU cables are bought extensions. I'm also thinking of replacing them with black - green ones

for the time being i have benched this case frown.gif

it saddens me because i really like how it looks.. but my crossfire setup hates it. i ran gpu-z in logging mode while playing sniper elite 3 and my top gpu hit 97c and my bottom gpu was 91c.

i feel this is too hot.

i have switched to my old XFX type 1 case and my gpus dont exceed 60c.
i have also noticed my socket and vrm temps have gone down almost 10c as well.

the h440 is a good looking case.. but it needs more bottom air flow.. maybe a side fan, or perhaps its just not for gaming.

Before you loose faith completely - if you really like the case look and feel - allow me to suggest the following:
1. Change out the stock fans. While being quiet for a stock config they are seriously lacking in airflow.

2. Put some fans blowing out the top. This will greatly improve temperature of the air inside the box. Without top exhaust fans the single exhaust can't seem to keep up with the three intake-fans. This leads to air building up in the case as the air being pushed in by the front fans can't get out soon enough.

When I run my DCUii 780 in the open it maxes out at around 67-70c. When in the case it quickly reaches the same temperature. But then you can see it slowly rising as the air inside the case (I.e the air the card uses for cooling) slowly heats up. Making it harder and harder for the card to cool itself. This was remedied by adding two 140mm fans blowing out the top.

All in all, this case will never be as cool as a Air 540 or something, but that was never the point either.

in my testing adding more fans made it worse..
i had a corsair 140 in the front, along with my 140XL and its push pull jetflo 140s
i had 3 jetflo 120s on top and 1 corsair 140 on the back..

adding more fans and increasing flow just made a jet stream from the front to the top. it didnt really increase any air flow to the GPUs. actually i think it made it worse by making a vortex of hot air right above the gpu..


if the bottom shroud had a fan mount blowing up instead of 2 ssd caddies i think it would have helped a lot with the cooling.. btw, dont put a ssd in those caddies with crossfire.. the gpu is so close it over heats it and you get a blue screen..


a case needs a bottom fan or a side fan or both to really be crossfire/sli compatible.

alternately, blower cards.

I FINALLY got around to swapping my rig over into the NZXT H440 case

OH MY DAYS this is such a nice case, i should have gone with it from the start. Easy to work with, quiet, a ridiculous amount of space and configuration possibilities - but you guys already know this right? biggrin.gif


Up until about a month ago i was using an Aerocool X3 case, so here's some pics from the transplant into the H440:




















The only problem i have had when building this was installing the rad at the top. It currently has 5 fans mounted because the one at the middle on the underside collides with the ram on the motherboard. I guess this can't entirely be blamed on the case, main reason the rad is up top (and not at the front) is because i'm still using my old bay res from my old case (this will be replaced with a photon res / d5 pump as soon as i can find the time to install it all) but yeah, small problem imo


So can i join ? biggrin.gif

Quick question, does the H440 and H630 really make water cooling loops suffer? I'm pondering between these two cases or a Corsair 780T.
