NZXT H2 Classic Case Review

Rating: 8.0.

NZXT surprised PC enthusiasts across the world when they released the stunning Phantom case, it also won our most prestigious ‘Must Have’ award when we reviewed it last August.  We are excited to see what NZXT has in store with their latest design – the budget friendly Classic Series H2.

The NZXT Classic Series H2 case has been designed to be as silent as possible.  It has an impressive feature set which includes a built in fan controller and noise dampening foam.

It’s priced very similarly to the Fractal Design Define XL case that we reviewed a while back which has also been designed to keep noise to a minimum.
