Now if the NZXT H2 (aka the Hush 2) arrived with a bang, then it wouldn’t be very silent now would it? This new chassis is a monumental improvement over their original “Hush” chassis which was the company’s first attempt at building a silent mid-tower case for the gaming market. And while that chassis was unique looking with it’s unique “robot eye” cut out, the overall quality was nowhere near the level set by their award winning Phantom Series.
To aid in silence, the two door panels are lined in foam and the front door closes over the front to further reduce fan noise. Vents at the foot of the case still provide air flow to the intakes. The optional top fan also has a magnetic cover you can use to further block out noise. A fan controller at the top-front of the case further aids in your quest for a mix of silence and performance. USB 3.0 is also covered on the list of front IO ports and there is even a hot-swappable SATA drive bay at the top of the case, hidden underneath a door.
The NZXT H2 comes in both white and black and use a more business like durable matte finish and will retail for a reasonable $99 USD. I’ll be checking this case out for Futurelooks later this week. But in the meantime, check out the press release below and the gallery of pics.
