NZXT H200 – Mini-ITX Tower

Features

  • All-steel construction
  • Full Tempered Glass panel
  • Enhanced Cable Management System
  • Fans Support - Front: 2x120mm/2x140mm, Top: 1x120mm/1x140mm, Rear: 1x120mm

  • Drive Support - 4 x 2.5" SSD + 1 x 3.5" HDD
  • Supports SFX and ATX power supply

Review

The H200 is a small form factor case for minimalists or for people who need a portable PC that houses the best hardware and cooling in one Tower Unit. The top I/O has two standard USB 3.1 Gen 1 with Audio and Mic port. The expansion slots are limited to only two. The drive bays support four 2.5 inch drives and one 3.5 inch drive.

NZXT went for an all-steel material for a more rigid and sturdy frame to ensure Premium Quality and Durability. This allows the case to have a solid mount for Tempered Glass so you can showcase your build in great detail.

For cable management, NZXT improved and simplified its cable routing system with a cable routing kit that comes with pre-installed channels and straps on the back of the motherboard tray, for faster and easier wiring for beginners and advanced PC builders alike.

The H200’s support for multiple fans and radiators is impressive for a mini - ITX case. It supports 2 x 120mm or 140mm fans in the front, 1 x 120mm fan each for the top and backside. This also means you can mount 1 x 240mm Radiator and 1 x 120mm Radiator on either of the Rear or Top mounts.

The H200 also comes with integrated reservoir mounts for custom loop water cooling. The signature PSU shroud comes with an SSD tray and covers the PSU slot that can mount both SFX and ATX form factors.

The air intakes are filtered to minimize dust accumulation but they are only limited to the Front and PSU mount. The storage layout is designed to get the best Airflow for the system.

All in all, the H200 is a great option for Mini-ITX builds. Its compact and minimalist design makes it very portable but still retains the cooling capability of the regular-sized NZXT Tower cases. The engineering and overall build quality is definitely premium and you can never go wrong with NZXT’s H200.

As the H510 Elite is a variant of the H510, its build is exactly the same as 510i as well. You will most likely have the same fast and easy experience building your PC in this NZXT case.

The only difference in the aesthetic department is the additional Tempered Glass in front which adds more bling to the case, but it may or may not impact the cooling performance of the case.

The addition of removable brackets to this case makes switching and replacing fans and radiators inside the case so much easier.

Thanks to the patented cable routing kit, users can still have clean cable management and routing even with multiple numbers of everything in this case. The design and engineering of this case hold it all together making it an excellent option for Professional users.

As with H210i and H510i, the integrated RGB lighting kit is very appealing for those who don’t want to bother buying a third party RGB kit. There are certainly cheaper options out there but if you also have NZXT coolers, you can control and monitor all these components to the NZXT CAM software.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, NZXT cases are well-designed and over-engineered that you can’t go wrong whichever case you pick in this lineup. Obviously, you don’t want to buy a Mini – ITX case if you’re planning to upgrade to a desktop workstation CPU and motherboard.

And you would want to go to the option that gives you the maximum features you can get. But at the same time, budget is a limiting factor, especially in NZXT cases. Personally, I would choose the H510 as it is pretty much the "do it all" option without sacrificing much.

If you are an enthusiast you might as well consider using an NZXT aio cooler with infinity mirror rgb design. For example the Kraken x52. Its a very popular design theme used by gamers specially.

At the end of the day, it all boils down to your specific needs and what you want to do if you’re going to upgrade hardware in the future.
