H440 FREQ Asked Questions List & Answers


1. Is this case design air flow restrictive? Especially with the solid panels?

Answer: Yes, due to the case design, the case is more restrictive vs others of it's caliber on the market. It is similar to the Fractal Design R4 in many ways. Yes, this chassis will not see as good as temps stock vs say an Corsair line up such as the air 540 or a typical Cooler Master HAF series case, but each manufacturer had a different goal in mind. Here NZXT wanted to provide a nice balance between decent temps, sound proofing, sleek look and a modern internal design. There are ways around the temperature increase due to the design on different cost and skill levels.

- Purchasing Static Pressure (SP) fans on this case is the cheapest and easiest way to bring more fresh air or push more hot are out of the h440. Installing SP intake fans to replace the stock fans is the best choice to begin. Followed by replacing the top stock exhaust fans. Static Pressure fans are designed to get air volume in restricted applications where ventilation is minimal, such as the h440 front and top panels, as well as applications such as radiators for water-cooling. Fans that have a good SP rating, about 1.25+ are ideal along with at least 45+CFM to go with it. Below are SOME examples of great stock replacements for your h440, no matter if your on air or under water in your system. There are many others available at different price levels, these are most recommended.


- Corsair SP 120's, HP, QE, and PMW models are all acceptable depending on your build.
(Great purchasing accessibility and color scheme matching)

- Noctua NF-F12/ NF-P12, as well as S12B Redux Models for those who cringe at the Brown scheme. The industrial models are superior to both but have a huge noise increase. Basically any Noctua 120mm fan will do you great. I recommend the 1200rmp+ models for superior cooling.
(Great noise/Performance and Lifespan)

MORE FANS COMING SOON



- Modding Panels is the next, more advanced step into making the h440 overall case temperatures lower. It also gives you the ability to add your own flare and theme to your build. Below are some examples of panel mods already done by members in the thread, all have decreased the temperatures without a doubt but each at different levels, each based on the build they are cooling and the type of mod respectively. The average on the mods below are 10c+ on gpu's 8c+ on cpu temps. This is between a mixture of air cooled and water-cooled builds. Needless to say it's worth it, and depending on your build components you could see even more. The mod helps multiple gpu systems extremely well. For more information on how to mod or help modding look through the thread for examples, post a question, or P.M. me for assistance @sgtgates

Nice OP, thanx for linking to the reviews!

At some point, I'll need to get a new case and this one is definitely on the radar. Like lots of folks i think, i gotta wonder about ventilation thru the top and front panels? The case allows for a copious number of huge fans in these locations, but the vents to the exterior are soooo constrained in comparison. I'm wondering how that works out in practice with overclocked components and SLI setups. I'm hoping to get a sense of that by keeping tabs on this thread, and also a sense of what mods or after market parts might shift the balance a little from what seems like an emphasis on silence to a greater emphasis on cooling. A side panel with a fan mount or different top/front panels with extra venting sort of things.

Anyway, look forward to seeing what folks do with this case and such. By all accounts, its got great features and high build quality and just looks fantastic.

If this helps any. I'm coming from a Cooler Master Storm Trooper and my temps are hardly any different with the same radiators I had in it if anything a little better, due to bottom being less restrictive on H630 and more rad options. Now, I have a hot 8350 Vishera and 2 7970's so I put out heat. Nothing a few rads cant handle that can fit in this case and even with stock corsair low rpm 140mm fans I have from an 800d on my 280 in push on the roof I still feel air escaping on the top vents, and feel it greatly coming in from the front rad. I don't think this case will have any difficulty cooling like people might presume but I will be sure to completely test when I can. Hope this helps and thanks for being the first post!

Sign me up with white! See photo proof in my thread. I shall post pictures when the wiring is complete.
I am just waiting for two more cables from HongKong (ModDIY).

Maybe as a "gaggle" we can figure out what the "fan controller" actually controls...................biggrin.gif

Just because you are paranoid, don't mean that people aren't out to get you!

I'll put Ya on the list! sounds good love to see pictures. as far as the" fan controller" it is not one. many have been let to believe that..it is just a fan HUB. a place to plug on all your case fans to make it neat. they will all run 12v unless an individual fan has a voltage reducer on it like I do for my sp120's, I use the 7v reducer that came with the fan. the bottom 3 pin connector is the power lead. should have came stock with the front panel 3pin connected to it that's attached to the Molex plug. So don't drive yourself crazy trying to use it as a controller because it's just a hub! biggrin.gif

No worries! Four years of college were not wasted. biggrin.gif
What I haven't figured out is why this power cable also feeds the front I/O?

lol wink.gif

The molex plug is the main power coming from the front panel PCB which gets its power from the PSU. Off that they chained the 3pin for the fan hub to have less wires most likely, + one less thing to solder on the PCB thumb.gif

Oh and your now officially the second member!
