[Vortez] NZXT H2 Review

post #1 of 85
Thread Starter 
Quote:
It was at CES 2011 at the start of the year that the product we are looking at today was first unveiled. The H2 is a case that slots into NZXT's "Classic" series and is regarded as the "Silent Midtower" due to the fact that there are thick side panels which feature foam underlay. It differentiates itself from the gaudy gamer styled cases currently swarming the market, by offering elegance and a minimalistic approach to styling. Fans within H2 can be controlled through 3 stages giving the user complete control over audio levels emitted from the chassis. With much more to talk about, lets begin our analysis of the new NZXT H2 that launches today.

Nice minimalistic case, except it has a door. I hate doors. Doors on the front of PC cases are the devil.

Why? I have doors on 3 of the 4 cases I have. I prefer them, only case I have that doesn't have a door is the LIan Li PC-888

Umm... I'll just assume they meant shut.

OT: If the door is shut, then will airflow be severely reduced?

Because MFG's need to learn to make front bezels that A: Don't look like crap, B: Don't hide behind doors, C: Have stealth covers like the Lian Li CD Bezels.

I get tha tthis is supposed to be a silent case, but having to open a door to access a DVD drive or other componants such as fan controllers and the like just pisses me off. It would be like putting a cover on all of the componants of the dash in your car. Stupid. Stupid.
