Got my H440 (rev.2, mat black, without window) yesterday and so far I am disappointed. From good things, I can say that build quality is very good and it is extremely easy to build in this case, but thats it. Sound dumping is not only complete gimmick but also increases noise of my fans. It creates some kind of strange hum that disappears after removing left side panel. I can't hear my PC with side panel removed, but once it is on, is sounds a bit like a AIO pump on high speed (I don't have AIO there, only air cooler that is quiet as fcuk), or simply like some humming box. I got this case because I looked for quiet case, I also liked how it looks in interior, how easy it is to build in it and how many options it gives, but main reason was silence and there is no silence at all. Fans that came with it are also really poor, they are no different from ~15 ZL (polish currency) fans and standalone versions of those NZXT fans are like 60 ZL. I changes them to 30 ZL ones from Silentum PC and they are way better, but still not too good.
This is really disappointing, I came from budget Silentum PC Gladius M40 case (200 ZL compared to 500 for H440, 660 for window version) and there is no significant improvement other than better build quality, easier building and managing cables, more space and higher CPU coolers possible to mount. But main feature I looked for, silence, is completely not there, case is increasing system noise instead of decreasing and default fans are just of cheapest of the cheapest quality if it comes to sound, rattling a lot even of min speeds.
