NZXT is a company which has always innovated when it came to their cases. I’ve always felt like their cases were made for builders as they’ve always had features that builders and modders wanted. It has been a while since we’ve seen a new high-end case from NZXT. Well they have recently released their new H-Series cases, which are made up of the H700i, H400i, and H200i. These are ATX, Micro-ATX, and Mini-ITX cases respectively. NZXT tells us these are “Smart” cases with built-in RGB lighting and fans which you can control via NZXT’s very popular CAM software. Of course this is all connected for you from the get go, and you have adaptive noise reduction which should help your system stay quiet, even during intense gaming sessions. Of course you have a nice tempered glass side panel to show off your hardware, and some very interesting cable management features. Is this the next case for you? Read on as we find out!

The H700i comes in a large box. On one side you just have a picture of the top corner of the case and it says “H700i Mid Tower”.
On the opposite side there is a picture of the case with a system installed.
On the other two sides there is a list of features and specifications, as well as information on NZXT CAM and some of the main features of the case itself.
Opening the box up inside we find the case nicely protected by two large pieces of Styrofoam and a plastic bag. This is also a plastic film on the tempered glass side panel for even more protection.
Inside you will find a box of goodies that include an RGB LED strip, screws and zip ties, and a user’s guide.
