    So they've basically addressed the cooling performance of the 440 and added a 8 pin fan hub..looks ok, but still prefer the styling of the 440 TBH.


    ..though neither are as nice looking as my Corsair 450D

    I like the look of it from the front. It's kind of like an alien tombstone lol..

    You're actually looking down on it at about 45 degrees. It's not the shape you think it is.

    I like the white-blue one. I wish more companies would sell in that color scheme.

    Antec 900, v1. Form and function. This one is... in a word... ugly.

    I'd love nzxt to make a 90degree rotated motherboard case like the FT05. Seems like only silverstone is doing that yet it provides the best cooling.

    You say bold, I say barf. It's as tacky as your run of the mill generic 'gamer' case.

    Gulp - this is almost exactly what I asked for when the H440 was released, except it looks quite weird (the grey/black is better). And then I went and bought a Phanteks Enthoo Pro...

    Re: NZXT launches the boldly designed Noctis 450 chassis

    Having used a full size Phantom for 2 years now I am convinced it is ready for replacement. I can hardly lift it! Won't be a NZXT next Too many experiences of dodgy fan controls and poor quality unfixed rubber grommets in the 2 NZXT cases I have plus a service back up that does not impress have convinced me to try elsewhere for an upgrade
