NZXT H2 Silent Classic

Cases

Conclusion

This is one excellent case. Its syling might be classic and a few average Joe’s may consider £80 too much to spend on a case, but for everyone else this is one you simply must take a peak at when buying a new chassis. Its got good cooling that’s quiet, excellent sound proofing, USB 3.0 support, bottom mounted PSU with dust filters, pre-organised cables and room for more. The interior paint job is consistent and the exterior one is nice and uniform.

Really, what more could you want from a case in this price bracket?

Well this is the first chassis I’ve awarded an Editor’s Choice to since we moved over to the new site, what do you think of the image?
