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.

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 really isn’t designed...

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 cool...

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 with...

NZXT are a fairly new name for us at eTeknix as it's only been recently that we've had the opportunity to look at their products. We started off taking a look at their Avatar S mouse recently which we found to be attractive and feature rich so naturally...

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 gives...

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...

Breaking free of the confines that big box electronics retailers force upon you when it comes to PCs is both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you're free to pick literally anything you want from anywhere you please. On the flip side, where do you...

The NZXT H2 has piqued the interest of many computer enthusiasts for its combination of clean looks, accommodating internals, and attention to noise levels. While the "Silent" part of its title might be something of a misnomer, the case does offer good...

The NZXT is good, but could be better. Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with the NZXT H2 Classic case, especially as it’s currently $99.99 on Newegg and Amazon. It delivers on its claims of quiet computing, and with mesh filters to keep dust out and...

NZXT’s H2 is a simple-looking case—in fact, simplicity seems to be the overall theme—and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In the world of PC building, simple can be good. The H2 is an ATX mid-tower, constructed of sturdy steel. The side panels...

With the H2 Classic, NZXT has crafted a clean and elegant looking mid tower that has some great features. Focused on silence the H2 comes lined with sound dampening foam on the front door and side panels. Contact powered fans and largely tool free...

NZXT offers a broad range of products from peripherals to power supplies. They have seen success in many of their offerings but it is arguably their cases that have earned them a spot in most enthusiasts' minds.Many of NZXT's cases can be described as...

When we saw the NZXT H2's prototype at CES, we were impressed. The case isn't just unusually austere for NZXT, it's genuinely attractive and feature rich. More than that, it's a case designed with silence in mind for the crowd not willing to pony...

The NZXT H2 effectively cuts down the noise from internal components significantly. I was doubtful at first while looking at the thin felt material on the side panels and the door but after testing everything, even with the fans set to maximum speed...

Though the NZXT H2 Classic may not have been a top performer in our stress testing, one aspect that we do not test in our reviews is noise. Adding this as a comparison, the H2 Classic would have certainly come out on top when put against the other...
