A Closer Look – Exterior

First impressions go a long way, as while this case has been designed to be practical from a hardware perspective, it’s also made to visually impress, and boy does it! The Flow offers up a more airflow-focused design which looks stunning. It keeps the design philosophy we’ve seen across the rest of the NZXT H-series, so similar hole pattern and trim that we see on everything they do; cases, peripherals, motherboards, etc.

While I don’t have the Elite to hand, that’s a more RGB-focused design while this one is more cooling-focused. The dual glass does look pretty epic. I honestly can’t decide which design I like the best, but would likely get the flow anyway as it’s a fair bit more affordable and I like to use my own fans rather than the pre-installed ones, not that there’s anything wrong with the Elite, of course.

The right side has a large and durable panel, which as you can see, offers up a large section of ventilation Actually, I don’t think I’ve seen a panel with this much ventilation ever! There’s a vertical fan/radiator mount on the interior and you can see the fans behind the mesh on the left side.

The rear of the case shows you just how big the H9 really is. It’s about 50-60% wider than many mid-towers, with the PSU mounted high up in the rear compartment, and the motherboard in the other compartment. There’s also quite a bit of clearance both above and below the motherboard mount.

The fan mount is pretty basic, and I’m not sure why NZXT didn’t give it elongated screw holes to allow for height adjustment. Hardly a deal breaker, of course, but it’s uncommon to see such a rigid design on a higher-end case.

The top panel looks awesome too, with a huge amount of ventilation here too, giving this case some seriously impressive cooling possibilities.

the front I/O is pretty compact for a case of this size, but it has got all the basics covered, with an easy-to-access power button, two USB 3 ports, a Type-C port, and an audio jack that supports 5-pole 3.5mm connectors; a splitter is included should you have separate audio and microphone cables.

The front panel can be popped off easily enough too, and it features a high-quality built-in mesh filter to ensure clean airflow throughout.
