NZXT hits the nail on the head with two things in my mind with the H230. They have successfully incorporated a near silent addition to the Classic series of cases with a sleek and somewhat elegant design that only has a couple of things to give it a unique style that is easy to distinguish as being NZXT. The second and most key to buyers, is that they did it and are delivering it at a really good price. This means that you can get an all white mid-tower chassis, or an all black version, that keeps up with the times, and shows that even the simplest of designs can stand to be upgraded to offer all of the latest and greatest in what we expect inside a chassis.
The chassis is well built, has good front I/O offerings, decent interior features, which would have been great or excellent if rubber grommets had been installed. Even with the panel off, the bezel removed, and the top section of the hard drive cage pulled out, the H230 stands strong and is resilient to twisting or any bowing. The fans inside are sufficient to deliver average temperatures inside of the chassis, but I would recommend you buy one optional fan for the front of the chassis.
The chassis isn't really water cooling ready, but with the pop-outs in the back, you can hang a radiator on the back and get the wiring tended to as well. Even though the H230 doesn't appear to offer much at face value, once you take in the total package, you can understand the idea that is going to make this chassis a near silent winner for system builders looking for a simplistic design, with as much sound absorption as possible.
Even with the slight deformation of the rear of the chassis below where the PSU installs due to some harsh shipping, as you could see in the review, it did not interrupt the installation of the PSU in any way, so I am willing to overlook that sort of inconsequential damage. So, with everything we have just seen, and hitting back on the point that this H230 in white or in black is only going to cost you $69.99 before any shipping charges are applied, you can see why I think this chassis is a really good deal.
It offers everything a $50 chassis has to offer, looks better than most of them out there, and with the H230, sound absorbing materials are used to make a sleek and simple design, as silent as possible, without intruding on space and usability.
