NZXT unveiled a new mid-tower chassis called the H440 that eschews the archaic 5.25” drive bays in favor of improved cooling and a simpler design. The PC case comes in two color schemes: white with black accents and black with red accents.

The new H440 measures 220mm x 510mm x 475.3mm (approximately 9” x 20” x 19”) and features a sleek design with a shrouded PSU and ample cable routing grommets. There are no 5.25” bays, but users can install up to eight 3.5” or 2.5” drives in removable sleds. There is a large cutout for installing aftermarket CPU coolers up to 180mm tall, seven PCI expansion slots, filtered vents on the front and rear, and support for up to seven fans. A massive side panel window shows off the hardware while hiding the PSU and hard drives along with the majority of cables coming off of the PSU. Users can install graphics cards up to 294mm with the hard drive sleds intact or 406.2mm with the drive sleds removed.

On the cooling front, NZXT is including one 140mm and three 120mm FN V2 fans with the case. The FN V2 fans are NZXT's latest design and driven by the company's fan controller. The case can support water cooling radiators on the top, front, and rear of the case or users can add to the included front and rear fans by installing up to three 120mm (or two 140mm) fans on the top of the case.
