Silent operation, Plenty of room for expansion, Lots of cooling out of the box, Sleek design
Superb Noise Reduction, Solid
Large, spacious case, 7 External drive bays and 9 internal HDD bays, Room for large expansion cards and EATX motherboards, Foam lined side panel, rubber HDD mounts, and PSU gasket help reduce noise, Four quiet case fans included (additional intake fa
Well made, Easy access to drives, Decent cooling, Places to route cables, Lots of room inside
Very good noise-dampening capabilities; tons of expansion room
Clean looking exterior, Reduces (but doesnít eliminate) computer noise, Comes with noise absorption material and quality fans, Front panel easily accessible, Large number of drive bays
Heavy duty construction, Aluminum plate on door, Sound dampening included, Plenty of space for external drives and many hard drives, Space for eATX boards, Nice lighting, Compartment design of the interior, All four fans included, Power & Reset buttons ca
Silent, Extended ATX Support, Huge drive support, Simple and spacious design
Very quiet operation, Insulating foam on side panels, Attractive design, Plenty of hard drive bays, Accommodates E-ATX motherboards and long video cards, Front e-SATA port, Tool-less retainer
Quiet (noise dampening material), Full Tower (Large), Dual Chamber Internal Chassis, Bottom Mounted PSU, 7 x 5.25" bays, 5.25" 3.5" adapter, Well Constructed, Cable Management
Sturdy design, Sound dampening material through out the interior of case, Cable management was made easy even when using a PSU with extra long wires, Having a separated upper motherboard area and the lower PSU area.
Weight Ė itís very heavy, Front door seems fragile.
Would have liked an extension for the 12V CPU connector.
Limited airflow in upper section (adding optional front intake fan will help), Requires a PSU with extra long cables
Door broke, Very heavy
Does not run completely silently; case size and layout may cause some trouble for cable routing; power button easy to hit accidentally
Louder than it claims, No window, Not very good for Cooling.
Pricey, Noisy fans negate the sound dampening feature, Bland interior server roots obvious, Many PSUs require extension cables due to case layout not included, Mainboard compartment quite compact for the case size, Screwless system does not hold too well.
Cooling performance, Only full length devices can be installed in external bays (ie, no fan controllers, etc), Shallow door clearance, Limited cable management options, No firewire port, IO Panel locking mechanism
Air Flow Somewhat Restricted, Internal Chassis Finish Seemed Too Thin, Lack of PSU Extensions For Cables
Not enough room near the upper area of the case, Not having enough fans on the motherboard area (intake) will make controlling temperatures difficult, Sound dampening material can and will act like an insulator during times of high ambient temperatures...

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...
