A Closer Look – Exterior

Now, from a first glance, it looks like they’ve utilised the size very well as it is a mid-tower and is slightly bigger than what the H510 series was, but not by much and is still on the smaller scale compared to similar cases on the market. Now even though it is on the smaller scale, it’s still able to accept up to ATX sized motherboards, CPU coolers up to 165mm and GPUs up to 365mm so those wanting a shiny new 4090 won’t be disappointed, apart from the big hole left in their wallet from buying the card in the first place.

Now, the design is pretty much what you’d expect. Imagine an H7 from the outside, just shrunk down slightly and if going for the Flow, you’ll get a large perforated front panel, while the Elite plumps for tempered glass, though one interesting thing is the fact that the Elite comes with a side panel on the right with extra perforation for added airflow, while the Flow doesn’t. Why NZXT doesn’t just ditch the solid panel and use the perforated one for all models I don’t know. It would likely cut down on costs too. As you’d expect as well, the black versions of the cases both have tinted glass, while the white has clear glass.

Beyond that, we have a single USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A port, a single USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-C port and an audio jack, so nothing has changed there from the previous H510 series.

There’s also a removable magnetic dust filter on the top as well, but other than that, the two cases are pretty typical of what you’d expect. Very similar in design to the H7 series, but similar in size to the H510 series, and that’s not a bad thing. It shows that NZXT has learnt a lot from previous and current product lineups.
