NZXT H500i @ TechPowerUp

Published: | Posted By:

I have noticed a trend in case design lately and I'm sure many of you have as well.  The trend is pretty simple and involves the power supply (PSU).  It would seem that people don't know what to do with it.

Sure we have custom cable sleeves and fancy RGB lights but when it comes to the case the trend is to cover the PSU.  Basement panels are a popular mod to cover the PSU and if you are into cutting your own side window you can simply exclude that section in your cutting.

Well the mfgs have caught on to this little trick and are releasing cases with two sections.  you have the top part with all the expensive components, lights and water and a bottom part with the PSU.  Guess which one gets the glass?

The NZXT H500 and H500i present a smaller version of the H700 chassis but employ the same steel construction. On top of that, the "i" variant features a built-in NZXT CAM module. With their retail grade fans, well executed features the H500 cases are surprisingly affordable and have the potential to favorites for both end users and system integrators.

Some people really like this case.  Personally I'm on the fence, sure it has some good features but it is a square, no curves, no bends nothing to make it unique.  Cept maybe the silly bar running down the middle.
