NZXT H440 White Mid-Tower Case Review
The NZXT H440 Mid-Tower case is designed to mount a standard ATX style power supply at the bottom. The power supply is first mounted to a sub plate and then easily slides into position from the back and is secured with four thumb screws on the backside panel.
The power supply can be mounted either with the fan up to pull air out of the case or with the fan down. The dust filter covered opening on the bottom of the case allows outside air into the PSU when the PSU is mounted with its intake fan down.
ATX Motherboard and VGA Adapter
The H440 case is designed to accommodate ATX, Micro ATX, and Mini-ITX motherboards. To see how things line up we installed a standard ATX motherboard and VGA adapter. There is a large cutout behind the CPU socket area and the case uses pre-installed standoffs to mount the motherboard. The motherboard slid into position easily and mated up with the mounting holes and rear I/O opening as expected. So did the graphic adapter. Thumb screws are used to secure expansion cards so you won’t have to worry about cards coming loose during transport.
The H440 chassis will accept graphic adapters up to 294mm (11.6”) long with the internal HDD/SSD trays all in place. Removing a couple of the lower drive trays will allow mounting graphics adapters up to 406mm (16”) in length.
Internal Hard Disc Drives
The internal 3.5” / 2.5” HDD trays are made out of steel, not plastic, and come fitted with rubber grommets (3.5” drives). The trays are held in place with two thumb screws and there is a sixth location on the bottom panel underneath the removable trays.
And last but not least, there are two 2.5” drive trays mounted on top of the power supply section shroud, below the motherboard area.
