Prolific PC hardware manufacturer NZXT has revealed a new small form-factor PC case called the H1, and it looks strikingly similar to the vertical design of the upcoming Xbox Series X.
The mini-ITX chassis also stands vertical (but, unlike the Series X, cannot be put horizontally), and features a perforated ventilation design not on the top face, but around most of its sides. The chassis is the smallest NZXT has produced yet, and comes with some impressive inclusions that make building with it a lot easier than usual.
For starters, the H1 features a pre-integrating a 650W 80 Plus Gold power supply, as well as a 140mm all-in-one liquid cooler. The H1 certainly isn’t the first PC chassis to include these pre-installed, especially in the mini-ITX realm, but both will come from NZXT’s tried and tested range of high-quality PSUs and close-loop coolers.
It also features the familiar cable management system from most of NZXT’s range, along with easy to reach compartments that should make installation relatively straight-forward. Mini-ITX builds are great for desks and entertainment centers due to their small size, but often require tradeoffs in cooling and build complexity. The H1 seems to be tackling both of these challenges head on.
The NZXT H1 is available for purchase now from NZXT’s website, and costs $350.
