NZXT H440 White Mid-Tower Case Review
A Detailed Look – From the Outside
NZXT’s new H440 is a very interesting case. The most obvious difference from standard mid-tower ATX enclosures is the absence of any exposed drive bays on the front of the case. The front panel is solid steel and while it is door-less, it can be easily removed to access the three front intake fans and dust filter. There are openings along the right side and across the bottom of the front panel to supply air to the front intake fans.
The H440 incorporates a steel chassis with ABS plastic trim pieces. The H440 is available in matte black with red accents or gloss white with black accents. Both versions are very nice looking! The riveted SECC chassis is light weight but rigid. The inside of the case is also painted and looks great.
An external I/O panel is located at the top of the H440 case and contains:
• Main Power Button with Pwr-On light
• System Reset Button
• (2) USB 3.0 ports
• (2) USB 2.0 ports
• Headphone Out
• Microphone In
The left side panel features a large acrylic window. The front drive bays remain hidden from view and the lower power supply and cabling area is concealed by a shroud. The backlit NZXT logo is clearly visible through the bottom of the window. Both side panels are removable and secured with two thumb screws at the back. The right side panel is solid. In practice, both side panels are easy to take off and re-install and fit securely once in place.
The top of the H440 case features a clean look with the external I/O panel located at the front. Like the front panel, the top is easy to pop off to gain access to the top fan/radiator mounting locations.
