Both the front panel and top cover come off the case with a nice tug and are equipped with some anti-noise padding to help keep things quiet.
Removing the front panel reveals 3 of the 4 included 120mm fans and a nice dust filter protecting them. Not only can you have 3x 120mm fans here you can also fit a 280mm or even a 360mm radiator
While the top may not come with any included fans, there is still plenty of room for your own or for another radiator! Again you can install 3x 120mm, 2x 140mm fans or either a 280mm or 360mm radiator. This means you can either create a small wind tunnel with all the fans you can install or you can have upto 720mm of water cooling radiator goodness in the front and top alone!
Taking a look inside with the main side panel off and we can see there are plenty of options available for all users. Not only does the H440 offer great cooling support, both air and water but there is plenty of room and options for cable management and a nice big cutout in the motherboard tray so if users wish to change their CPU cooler they can do so without removing the whole motherboard.
The PSU cover has a nice blue that matches the rest of the accenting on the case with the NZXT logo in the middle. In the below photo we can also make out the thumb screws that will allow users to removed the 2.5″ SSD trays to get their drives installed. I will say the first time around you may need a screwdriver to get these bad boys out but after that you should be fine just using your hands unless you over tighten them.
Top down view looking at the SSD trays and the cutouts behind them to allow for the SATA and power cables to be connected to the drives.
The 4th included fan comes courtesy of a 140mm fan and is placed in the back of the case as an exhaust fan. Under the fan are two rubber grommet holes designed for water cooling tubes and to the right of those are the 7x expansion bay slots. Also if you look just above the big cutout in the motherboard tray we can just make out the cutout designed for a 4/8 pin EPS CPU power connector.
Taking a look from the backside of the motherboard tray and there are a few things going on back here. First, on the left we will notice all 3.5″ drive bays which are not really noticeable from the front side. Under the cutout in the motherboard tray is a fan splitter that users will be able to connect up to 10 fans to, saving on motherboard headers. Also worth noting that the LED power connector is connected to the splitter as well so if left there will only be able to connect 9 fans, which should be more than enough for most users.
