We haven't done too many case reviews recently, but now NZXT said they were going to launch a new case and we just had to have one for a review. NZXT is probably best known for their eye catching gamer cases, but the brand does already have more subtly styled cases for the rest of us. The case they sent us now is a H2 Classic and it definitely fits to the latter category.

We got the case as a pre-production sample, so it arrived packed in a plain old cardboard box with barely any information. In fact, at the time of writing, there are no specifications available for the case, either, so we had to come up with the list.
As we can see, the H2 Classic is a mid-tower case, loaded with features. It has plenty of storage options with total of 8 3,5" and three 5,25" drive bays and there's also a hot-swap drive bay on the roof. The cooling sounds decent, sure, we've seen plenty more fans on some gaming cases, but really this is all it takes to cool even a high performance system. As other features worth pointing out there are dust filters on all air intakes and a fan controller to keep the noise down.
The bundle contains a manual, an NZXT product flyer, zip ties, silicon vibration dampeners for a fan, a case speaker and a load of screws, nicely sorted to different plastic bags to make the installation a breeze. Rather than being a separate unit, the fan controller is built in to the case.
