NZXT H7, H7 Flow, and H7 Elite Review
There are two types of PC builder, those who want a good looking PC, and those who want a PC that’s optimised to perfection. That’s why NZXT has created standard, Flow, and Elite versions of their H7 chassis.Â
The standard H7 is designed for those who want a plain monolithic aesthetic, the Flow is designed for those who want optimised cooling performance and the Elite is designed for those who want a tempered glass front panel and a lot of RGB fans out of the box.
If system cooling is the most important thing for you, the NZXT H7 Flow is the H7 for you. While it only ships with two fans out of the box, it’s design ensures that the case’s fans have a direct flow path for its air intake. That ensures maximal airflow, and optimal thermal performance for your hardware.
Aside from the case’s new front panel and the lack of perforations on the case’s right side panel, the H7 Flow is identical to the standard H7. You only need to replace two panels to convert a standard H7 into an H7 Flow, and even then, it’s only the front panel that truly matters.Â
Had NZXT released their H7 and H7 Elite on their own, they would be opening themselves to a lot of easy criticism with regards to system airflow. The NZXT H7 Flow addresses these criticisms by giving users a direct airflow path, though it comes at the cost of giving the H7 a fundamentally different design aesthetic.Â Â Â
