NZXT H230 Mid Tower Case Revealed at Computex 2013

On June 2nd, 2013, NZXT revealed the NZXT H230 Mid Tower Case as part of their Computex product release promotion.  This mid tower case is yet another impressive case in the recently released H-Series cases by NZXT.  Coming in at $69.99 this mid tower case has big tower feel, and feels like a steal at that price!

NZXT H230 Back View


Like the previous released H630, the H230 comes with the fan hub in the back.  Easily allowing you to connect multiple fans to a centralized location.  The H230 also comes with sound dampening material to keep you running quiet all throughout midnight gaming sessions.

In this picture we see a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 ATX motherboard.  That’s right, that’s a ATX board in a mid-tower case, and it’s not cramped up inside!  A ATX motherboard can really fit comfortably in this case while still providing you with a little extra room to get your fingers in those normally tight spots.

Something else I that was really cool, which we don’t see too often, is the ability to literally create space.  The HDD cage pictured in the middle, right behind the GTX Titan, can be removed allowing you to install even larger video cards.  The GTX Titan comes in at 10.5″ , unless you’re installing a GTX 690, which comes in at 11″, you should have enough space.  However, should you find yourself needing more space, you can simply rearrange your current setup by removing the HDD cage.

My Thoughts on the NZXT H230

I’m really impressed with this one.  It’s not too often you see a case this cheap come with this many options.  It’s not even the options that really sell me here, it’s the thought that went into the design of this H230.  It feels like someone really tried to make a mid tower that doesn’t leave you wanting a full tower.
