Another build in a nice new case is done and over with. While there wasn’t a whole lot of differences compared to the normal H440 aside from some aesthetics, it was still a pleasure to be able to build in one of these agains. As far as the more standardized tower cases go, this is definitely one of my favourite and has been since I got my hands on the original last year.
The performance of the H440 is nothing short of spectacular. It offers great airflow to keep everything nice and cool while remaining as silent as possible. The 3x intake fans really do a great job of getting the air moving while the pre-installed noise dampening material does an excellent job of making sure things stay nice and quiet. All and all, NZXT have done an amazing job of balancing both aspects of performance here with their H440 and the Razer edition is no excepotio, it falls right into place as it should. When looking at the design of the case, it is hard to imagine the airflow will be so good, but it surely is!
Well, by now, it should come as no surprise that I am a big fan of the H440 in general, and the Razer Edition is a nice addition to the lineup. Aside from the standard H440 features, such as the PSU shroud and overall very functional design, the Razer Edition does bring a couple of very aesthetically pleasing upgrades with it. The Three-Headed Snake logo and the glow from under the chassis are just amazing. I am a fan of LEDs and what really helps to set them apart, is the fact that you can turn them off with the push of a button. This allows users to get the best of both worlds if you ask me and at the end of the day, the more options the better!
We, of course, have the normal host of amazing design features we saw with the original H440 as well. The PSU shroud has to be one of the biggest features of the case. However, let us also not forget the fan splitter that is included on the backside of the motherboard tray. How about the way the 3.5″ hard drive bays are mounted as to not be seen. I mean let’s be honest, no one really wants to show those off anyways most of the time, so let’s hide them and their wires! GGWP NZXT!
Value is in the eye of the beholder and while the Razer Edition does cost a little bit more than the standard H440, I feel it is easily justified. Firstly, you get some more LED lighting options that I feel really help set the case off. Secondly, you get a Razer branded case which, love them or hate them, they are one of the most popular PC gaming companies around. The H440 also offers great functionality while remaining aesthetically pleasing which allows it to offer exceptional value for the money in my eyes.
When all is said and done, the Razer Edition H440 is nothing short of spectacular. It is a well thought out and designed case and the new additions over the standard model H440 are easily welcomed. If you are a Razer fan and are looking for a new case that offers great airflow, while remaining near silent than the Razer H440 is the one for you, no question about it!
Gold Award – It’s easy to see why the Razer Edition H440 walks away with our Gold Award today. The design is impeccable, functionality is on point and it offers exceptional value for money. All and all, it is an extraordinarily well-rounded case.
Design Award – I am giving the Razer H440 Edition our design award as well due to the fact it brings a couple of nice advancements to the aesthetics over the original H440. Also, the design as a whole is still as amazing as it was the first time I saw the original H440.
