Enjoyable Builds For All
We designed a cable routing system with pre-installed channels and straps on the back of the motherboard tray, for intuitive and easy wiring. We also upgraded our signature cable bar to be adjustable to simplify the building process.
The H500 series’ layout for storage optimizes airflow and interior space for a clean-looking build. The two quick-release 2.5” SSD trays on the PSU shroud can also be mounted behind the motherboard tray.

The last time I built a PC, companies were just starting to get away from the ugly box designs with silver unpainted interiors, and it was pretty difficult to get a stylish case for under $200, and at that high price point you were pretty much paying for the ability to actually manage your cables with rubber grommets and the like. So I was a little discouraged when I found this case and liked it, but realized it was only $100. I assumed it was probably low quality when compared to the other NZXT offerings, but I didn't really like anything else I found, so I decided to pull the trigger and send it back if it was a piece of junk.
Fortunately, this has been the best case I've ever owned, and I was amazed at how easy it was to build in.
- Build Quality -
I'm pretty used to sharp edges, unpainted interiors, and unintuitive design choices. Even older Corsair cases, which I felt were superior in the "ease of building" department, are a joke in comparison to how great this case was.
I was worried that this case would be a bit wobbly when you took off the side panels, and I'm happy to report that it's very solid. The interior paint job is perfect, and the matte finish is actually really nice, and the case lights are perfectly placed and don't cast light cones on the glass (unless you turn them all the way up). Overall it's a great case in terms of quality.
- Building Experience -
There are slots and holes in every possible place that you could run a cable, and the backside has velcro straps and routing channels for your cables. I barely even had to try to manage my cables, and it looked better than my old Corsair 600t did after an hour of zip tying, tucking, and weaving. The back panel shut effortlessly.
The bottom part of the chassis being sectioned off was a genius design choice, because I can stuff cables in there without caring what it looks like, and often contains the most cables if you don't have a modular PSU.
I was able to put my Kraken cooler, and my 1080 ti Hybrid radiator easily within the case, with plenty of room. The airflow is perfectly fine, and both of those items stay around 26C when idling. Wonderful case, I'm nothing but happy with it.
- CAM Software -
Surprisingly, I really like the CAM software. I think in the early days of the case release it was probably pretty rocky, but for me now it worked flawlessly. I enjoy the UI and the temp monitoring, and I can easily change my fan speeds if needed. I don't let it use the fan curve where it "learns" or whatever, I just set it to quiet and turn it to performance if needed. It's that simple.
Overall, I really loved building my PC in this case, and I'm so impressed at the quality for $100.
Beautiful clean, subtle look.
Very quiet design. Almost silent. I have three fans total. Plenty of areas for fans, five total. The front two fans are not included, but optional for better airflow.
Excellent contrast of white and black colors. Notice that the inside of the case is all black. And then it has that nice white piece that stands vertically next to the motherboard area.
Superb cable management. I have it to so that you cannot see any wires and cables. Not easy to achieve, but NZXT nailed it perfectly.
Tempered glass feels very very sturdy. Not like the cheap cut out glass that seems to be made out of plastic from the CoolerMaster case I had.
Can place SSD on brackets on a mesh platform right underneath PCIe slots, but it doesn't get in the way. I have a GTX 1070 and Asus Xonar DGX PCIe. Excellent spacing.
Everything is easy to screw on and take off. The back panel is so easy to take off and they added about an inch of room for cable management in the back. This is such a critical thing that they implemented.
Front panel is on the top and not the front of the PC case. Power button, usb slots are all on the top, front part of the PC case. You don't have to insert your USB slots or plug in your headphones at a weird angle when using the front panel. I disliked this about most PC cases.
The back panel area has nice little "canals" that you can loop your cables and wires through. Gives it a clean look and you don't end up crushing your cables with the back panel.
At the bottom, there is also a place for SSD or hard drive bays. It is also removable. I removed it so I had room to place my cables in there for better cable management.
Good size for an ATX case. I had a CoolerMaster HAF 932 advanced with the full window panel. I liked the CM case, don't get me wrong. It was just too heavy and big.
I have nothing but praise for this case. It's a must-have and a steal for $69.99.
The rear fan can get in the way of motherboards with a large heatsink. I installed an MSI Z370 Pro Carbon Mobo and it barely fit. I had to remove the rear fan, then install the Mobo. Not a big deal but keep this in mind. I'll measure the clearing space and update later.
The top case fan tends to vibrate a lot. It isn't because of the fan. It is due to the top part of the case. The metal is too light and flimsy. It lacks weight and thickness so the fan at the top causes noticable vibration and noise. This is my reason for taking away one star.
Other than that, this is an excellent gaming PC case especially if you are looking for a nice contrast in colors, great cable management, silent, and a clean subtle look. This is my first super clean gaming build. I haven't put together a full build in 10 years!
Great value and best bang for your buck. Best gaming case for its price that I could find.
Also note that the H500 is the alternative to the H500i which is software integrated. I highly recommend the H500 if you don't care for all the software integrated stuff.
