Final Thoughts

 

So let's recap a bit here. The H2 in the Classic Series from NZXT offers quite the kit. You get black on black coloring with just a touch of chrome classiness. On the top you get a 30 Watt fan controller, USB 3.0 connectivity, a HDD dock and a noise reducing, magnetic fan cover to keep any optional fans installed as quiet as possible. If the fan isn't all that quiet that you chose to add, there is the option to attach it to the fan controller and reduce the fan speeds from 100% at position III to 70% at position II, and even further to 40% in position I. With a full solid exterior and the use of sound deadening foam behind the door panels under the magnetic fan cover and inside the front door, the H2 is impressively quiet, and I haven't even covered anything on the inside yet.

 

Inside you are given a very functional and easy to use drive system. The 5.25" bays use clips on the left and with the thumbscrews screwed into the rail, you can remove them and use them on the right side to securely mount the drives. For the 3.5" bays, each of the trays will accommodate both 3.5" drives and 2.5" drives, but once slid in place, they can be secured with thumb screws to make sure the tray doesn't accidentally slide out of place. I found the amount of screws screwed in the edge of the drive bays plentiful and super handy to store and pull these screws from. The motherboard tray offers multiple motherboard types, plenty of wiring holes and even more places to tie wires to. Aside from the slight struggle with my expansion slots, I found no real issues in cable length, connectivity, or the finished results I was able to achieve in a relatively short time.

 

On top of the full appointed chassis design, you don't have to deal with an exterior that resembles the last incarnation of Optimus Prime, or anything outrageous. What you do get is a unique, sleek and sexy chassis outside that incorporates anything you are going to want in a mid tower chassis, especially at this price range. The fact that I am able to load up Google's page and shop just about anywhere and get this chassis at a really great price just sweetens the deal. The $99.99 Price at Newegg.com is right on the average pricing and everyone is asking for shipping as I look, so no special deals at this time. Even so, NZXT delivers yet another product this month that leaves me with a cheesy grin on my face as I type it out and show you what it has to set its own level of success in silence, performance and optional equipment at a terrific price.
