Introduction & Specifications

Picture this scenario, its 2004 and an avid gamer and enthusiast had a vision, a dream, a purpose! His name is Johnny Hou and he is the founder and current CEO of a widely known commodity in the case manufacturing world, NZXT. Now you have heard or seen an NZXT case before right? We know you have and if you haven’t, their popular stalwarts such as the Phantom series, H range and of course their Source catalogue; making cases look stylish, yet affordable.

So what’s the big deal now? Well NZXT have recently just released a new case and it kind of follows their past ranges, but with a little more “oomph”. I am of course talking about the NZXT Noctis 450 which not only has a unique and striking design, but it’s geared up specs wise for the avid enthusiast looking to make a statement.

You can find the specifications below and go ahead onto the next page to take a look at why this case from NZXT could be the best yet; or not!
