NZXT H1 Mini-ITX Case Review


The really tiny mini-ITX cases are often not marketed by the well-known large case manufacturers, but rather by smaller start-ups, etc., as “kits.” NZXT intends to change all of that and make the entire mini-ITX experience simple and uncomplicated, even if you are a first-time builder. Super-small mini-ITX builds are quite specialized.


They just debuted their H1, a 13.6 L mini-ITX case with a built-in 650 W 80 PLUS Gold power supply, 140 mm AIO liquid CPU cooler, space for two 3.5-inch hard drives, and even enough for full-size graphics cards. Let’s have a look at how NZXT managed to fit into this case and how they made it both practical and simple to construct.


  • $349.99
  • Volume: 13.6l
  • 140mm AOI liquid cooler
  • 650w SFX-L 80 Plus Gold fully modular
  • PCle 16x Gen3 High-speed Riser card
  • Supports Mini- ITX
  • SGCC steel and tempered Glass
  • GPU clearance up to 2.5 slots
  • Front panel USB-c


The retail packaging for the NZXT H1 is not much bigger than the case itself. A picture of the H1 is on the front, while a closer shot and some information about the case are on the reverse.

A comprehensive list of features and specifications is printed on the box’s other two sides. When we open the package, we can see that the case is well-protected by substantial pieces of Styrofoam, and it is enclosed in a plastic bag to prevent scratches.
