NZXT has been making waves in the market over the past years, coming up as a relative unknown group and emerging as a mainstream PC manufacturer. Today the H2 Classic strikes from their labs, a silent powered ATX case offering low noise case fans and expansion room to suit most users.

Looking at the gallery below it’s easy to see how tempting these cases are, with color matched interiors it turns the system into a full show piece instead of just an external piece of eye candy. The hot swappable drive dock on the top, the USB 3.0 connection support and countless expansion zones are enough for anyone wanting a powerhouse on a dime.
Is this enough to separate it from the likes of Antec, Corsair, Coolermaster and more? No one really knows, the silent factor may be the single selling point to consumers in that market. Keep an eye out for it at your favorite e-retailer or B&M store.
