NZXT has just announced the first new product they will be showcasing at Computex! It is the H230 Silent case. This mid tower case has a great sleek design, which we have become accustomed to from NZXT. They tell us the designers of the case had one goal in mind when creating this case: create an affordable, silent chassis with all of the necessary essentials for a clean, functional build.
NZXT has a new silent case on their hands in the H630. NZXT says this case was engineered for one purpose, to provide enthusiasts the ability to build the highest performing systems while remaining audibly invisible. The H630 will feature a high-density sound dampening design that will not impede cooling capabilities.
NZXT has been using internal fan hubs in their cases for a while now. These fan hubs provide a central location to connect all of your fans, which makes things much easier. NZXT has just announced the Grid Internal Fan hub that allows anyone no matter what case they have to easily connect their fans to one central location. The fan hub supports up to 10 fans and is designed to fit in any case.
Not that long ago we took a look at NZXT’s Phantom 820 case. This case took the best parts of NZXT’s original Phantom and combined them with the best parts of their own Switch 810 case. We loved the case and even gave it our Recommended Award. With a pricetag of $249.99 the Phantom 820 may be a little too expensive for some people. At CES we were shown the Phantom 630, which seemed to be like the little brother to the Phantom 820. While NZXT explained that this is a less expensive Phantom it has a lot of new features that are not in the 820. Some of these features include dual SSD mounts behind the motherboard tray, three included 200mm fans, three removable hard drive cages, and a new motherboard tray design. Can NZXT release a new Phantom this soon and still impress? Read on as we find out…
There’s nothing more disappointing than building the ultimate gaming PC, and then finding out that peak performance is not being attained or maximum potential is being capped because of poor cooling. NZXT is proud to bring you the new FZ-200 – a monster of a fan so powerful, you could replace multiple fans with just one of it. Our engineers started off big. The new FZ-200 is 200mm large and boasts a 103CFM rating. This means you’re doing more with less. A single FZ-200 can provide double or triple the air-flow of smaller 120mm case fans. And because you’re using less fans you’re also reducing power usage and noise.
NZXT had a great 2012, with 2 of its cases making our Best Cases of 2012 list. It seems that they have a lot in store for 2013. Just a few months after releasing the Phantom 820 NZXT showed us the new Phantom 630, which has been completely designed from the ground up. Could this case make our best-of list for 2013? Along with the Phantom 620 NZXT also was showing their new Hale 90 V2 power supplies.
One of my most common questions I get when one of my friends is building a new computer is, “What case should I get?”. Your case is a very important part of your system. It is what you are going to see each time you sit down at your desk, the first thing someone is going to see at a LAN party and the case you are going to have to deal with when you decide to upgrade your system. This past year we have reviewed a lot of great cases, but a few really stick out from the rest. Our list of the best cases of 2012 are drawn from only the cases we have reviewed this year. So if you think an awesome case is off the list that may be why. Read on to check out what we consider the best cases of 2012!
If there is one thing that Apple has proven to the world it’s that creating an image that individuals want to identify with will sell your product. This technique has been repeated time and again in recent years, especially in the tech world. One company to do this and totally create an image that their target market can identify with is NZXT. Established in 2004 and focusing originally on computer enthusiast cases, NZXT have quickly and successfully ground out a segment of the gaming/case modding community to call their own. With a strong following in both the case and power supply market NZXT released the Havik air cooler in June of 2011. It was met with great success and rave review. The Havik was released at a price point aimed at the upper level overclocker, it would seem that since then NZXT has become interested in the lower entry and mid level market. And that brings us to todays test subjects, we will be thoroughly analyzing both the NZXT Respire T20 and T40 air coolers.
A few weeks ago I was laying in bed with my significant other watching a movie on her Macbook Pro. Naturally the Macbook was lying across my thighs and after about 30 minutes the bottom of her computer began to get really hot, hot to the point where I had to lay the computer between us. Coincidentally the next week Bob asked me to review the NXZT Cyro E-40 Laptop cooler and my first thought was, “where was this thing when I actually needed it?” NZXT has a solid history in the laptop cooling market. Any recommendation I’ve made in the past for a cooler I’ve always said to look at NZXT. Let’s find out if the Cyro-E40 lives up to my recommendation.
NZXT’s Phantom case really brought NZXT into the spotlight. The case was just awesome, a unique design, built in fan controller and much more. The case became so popular we saw many custom PC makers using it and component companies using it to demo their products. Since its release it is now available in red and even pink and NZXT released a value version of the case (Phanton 410). The big surprise from NZXT this year was the Switch 810. Another full tower case that again became a leader in the case market. Now just in time for the holidays we have what would happen if you took the best features from the Switch 810 and Phantom and put them into one case. The case is the Phantom 820 and it features 4 included cooling fans, integrated HUE lighting system, 4 channel digital fan controller, removable hard drive cages, USB 3.0 support and much more. Read on as we take a look at this case!
