The NZXT Whisper is aimed for silent computing and overall we feel that they have achieved it. With the decibel testing that we performed, the Whisper is just louder than a whisper quiet library. The cable management was good and allowed us to route...

Video Review: There aren't a lot of cases on the market that come with sound dampening material. I'm not sure why this is considering it's relatively inexpensive. Thankfully the NZXT Whisper Case does have this foam on the side panels and...

For a case that was designed for quiet operation the NZXT Whisper is certainly no slouch when it comes to cooling either. We were very impressed at the numbers when compared to the NZXT Tempest and found the case very roomy and easy to work with. A...

The NZXT Whisper Classic Series Case accomplishes the goal it set out to do. Conquer noise. With a quietly designed system, unless I looked at the case and saw the lights, Id be hard pressed to tell you if the system was even on. When we put our...

After using the Whisper for a few weeks I have to say the name fits. This is one of the quietest PC cases that I have encountered. Other than the sound of an occasional DVD being accessed I could barely tell when it was on. Although I prefer the PSU...

With seven external 5.25" bays available and a mind numbing nine internal 3.5" drive bays, the Whisper would make an excellent sever or NAS case with a need for lots of storage. With some features like the insulated panels, rubber power supply cover...

The NZXT Whisper was designed to reduce noise and it does an excellent job of that. It is the quietest case I have ever seen. When I brought it into the bedroom and turned it on, my wife was shocked by how quiet it was. She thought I was lying when I...

We believe the NZXT Whisper is a nice design chassis carefully thought through in many ways, but alsl believe its not good enough to reach an audiphile enthusiast and demanding market. We are used to see perfection from NZXT, its their reputation....

The NZXT Whisper full-tower enclosure is a solid case that provides a lot of storage space and accommodates both E-ATX motherboards and larger expansion cards. Nine internal drive bay locations permit a lot of flexibility with room for up to nine...

The NZXT Whisper PC case is truly one of a kind in terms of quality, and true to its name it is very quiet. The hard drive racks are a very nice touch, theyre easy to access and having nine of them allows for quite a bit of storage. The...

This case is very spacious and is a great choice for people with lots of hard drives and DVD drives. Is it completely silent? No, but no case really can be as long as there are fans to the outside. It does come very close though, and definitely lives...

The NZXT Whisper doesnt have all the flash of a traditional gaming case, but its striking look and powerful sound-killing capabilities make it just right for the aurally sensitive enthusiast....

There’s not a lot to be said about the NZXT Whisper that isn’t said in the video, and what was said I don’t feel like saying again. The bottom line is that it’s a huge, solid case, with lots of built-in functionality like the...

Pros Well made with nice fit and finish Aluminum panel added to front door Sound dampening Nice trays for Hard Drives Controls accessable even when door closed. Noisey fans included with case Cons You will need extensions for certain power supply...

The Whisper is a very sturdy and well built product designed to please users who value the acoustics performance above all else and want a classic, simple looking case. The layout combined with the number of drives and components it can house makes it...

The NZXT Whisper Computer Case is well-designed computer case that has a number of features that help reduce noise. You can see NZXTs attention to detail in this case; every source of noise was considered and mitigated to a certain degree. Being...

Page 3 of 3 Performance: The case didnt perform as well as my M998 in terms of cooling, but keep in mind that the M998 case has Noctua fans installed rather than the regular stock fans. They not only push more airflow but also are much more silent....

The NZXT Whisper is a nice looking enclosure, but the big selling point of this unit is not the design. NZXT sells the case - as the name implies - as a perfect basis for silent computing. The used sound dampening materials are one of the big...

On the whole, the NZXT Whisper is a case that I am not totally certain about. Its bulky exterior and flimsy front panel dont seem to match at all. This coupled with the garish blue light that is emitted upon power-up give the case an odd look...

The blue illumination is not as great as other NZXT cases weve seen, but like I mentioned before I think this case is more meant to be a server case with a gaming touch. The NZXT Whisper case has a multitude of options from Server Chassis to Silent...
