Sway me to a 350D or H440

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want a nice case for my next build, centered around an i5 4670k and a gtx 780 both will be eventually under water with a custom loop. Currently I have a CM scout and it served me well, but too noisy and honestly not quite the looker.

I like the size of the 350D but not the top grill. I love the looks of the H440 but how is it for noise? Is it really that silent? I won't need to run at the lowest possible temp....just a nice temp for the CPU and GPU while gaming. I'll never really been interested in going SLI so not sure if that's a factor, I'll also be running a WiFi card in there too. Also I never use my bay drives.So...350D or H440?

Never seen the 450D until today, looks good actually, but I might sway more to a H440 as compared to the 350D and 450D though...decisions, decisions.

450D is a decent choice. Here a link to a review. Same price as the NZXT H440, and they'll ship it within 4-6 days, from what the site says.

But, if you're going with the white H440, you'll get it pretty soon anyways. So, the question is, cooling or silence?

The H440 has decent air cooling for a silent case, and plenty of liquid cooling support in both the front and the top of the case. AND it's silent. Plus, it's sexy as hell.

The 450D will undoubtedly be cooler, as it has perforated vents all over. BUT, if you're running a liquid cooler, it could get noisy. It doesn't look too shabby either, nice and simple with good features.

So, in the end, do you want silence with quite a bit of innovative features, or the most function out of your case?

*EDIT* I just remembered that you posted in the NZXT H Series club. Good choice, by the way.

Buummeer.....NZXT told me they will begin new shipment beginning 3rd week of April. I cancelled my order though. I might just get a 350D or an arc mini r2 and watercool those instead instead, I really wanna downsize my next build, I don't really need extra pci slots for dual gpus or anything like that. Hopefully it will be a quiet case, I just gotta make sure that all the components are decently quiet or something.
