The NZXT H2 Classic features an advanced noise dampening technology that reduces annoying hums, clicks and whirls. Despite muffling your system's chatter, NXZT says the H2 maintains enough airflow to keep your high-end components cool.
Budget friendly sound insulation.
Loads of storage potential.
Built in fan controller for factory installed fans.
Top hot swap capable SATA HDD Dock.
Best 5.25" bay device covers.
25mm space behind motherboard.
External SATA Dock Bay.
Fantastic cable management options.
Case can become very hot during gaming.
Too many black thumbscrews.
Only one USB 3.0 port.
Side panel fit.
Cooling capability could be better.
Fans are not silent at full speed.
3.5” internal drive mounts finicky to attach
Grommets aren’t very secure.
Chintzy optical drive latches.
Toolfree 3.5" HDD mounting is not as easy as it looks.
Limited space for graphics cards.
Plastic may not be for everyone.

The H2 isn’t the first silent chassis that NZXT has built, but I’m still quite impressed with the results. The case was very quiet, even when having the fans on 100% power. While airflow isn’t the greatest in a case like this, it...

The H2 has a tough role to fill as a sub $100 silent PC chassis. I found the black finish and smooth lines a bit somber but attractive. The top panels are at odds with the look but most users will probably not end up messing with them as much in...

The NZXT H2 Classic Series Silent midtower case definitely made a very positive impression on me in this review. Although there isn't anything really jazzy, I really like the stealthiness of this case. Just about everything is black, giving it a...

This has been an awesome case to install hardware in, it was easy and no tools were required for more than the motherboard itself. I love the facts it has USB 2 and 3 ports on the front and two removable front fans, it doesn’t make things worse...

The NZXT H2 mid-tower case combines the classic good looks and quiet operation of the full-tower Whisper, with the small footprint of the Hush. Sprinkle in a slew of updated bits like painted interior chassis, hot-swap removable fans, external hard...

Explosions, pings, message notifications, and the Windows login tune. What do all of these have in common, you may ask? Well, these are all sounds we may hear almost every day when sitting in front of our computers. From just logging on to playing...

Although the NZXT H2 Silent Classic Mid-Tower PC Chassis is a bit plain looking compared to some of NZXT’s other PC cases it still is a nice looking case for those who don’t want clear panels and/or lots of LEDs. Its black monolithic style...

In the past. I have used both the original NZXT Tempest and the Tempest EVO for my personal system. After not paying much attention to the company (although I did want to always take the PanzerBox for a spin), it's nice to have been able to take a...

I loved the tool-less design on the H2, it made for an easy installation. In fact putting the drives in was actually fun, taking off the fan with just a pinch and sliding it in and hearing that nice little click letting me know everything is safe, mmm...

NZXT adds a little style to its H2 Classic with an aluminium insert on its face panel. The finished PC doesn’t look expensive, but...
