Final Words & Conclusion

It’s time for the conclusion. Overall, the NZXT H6 FLOW is an attractive-looking chassis. Wraparound glass panels with a seamless edge provide an unobstructed view of the inside to highlight key components.

The build quality is very good. The internal layout is typical for a two-chamber design, as it’s an ATX chassis. You get three fans, one 120 mm (non-RGB, 3-pin, 1200 rpm) at the front-right side. There’s an RGB variant if you prefer (for 25 USD more)

Features

There’s enough space for up to 365 mm long GPUs, 163 mm tall CPU coolers (so probably you won’t fit everything available on the market, but this chassis is rather aimed at the AIO coolers), and 200 mm long PSUs (a good result). You can install one 3.5” or up to two 2.5” drives (but that’s not a big drawback at times when the m. two drives are usually cheaper than the SATA type). You can mount the ATX board here; the size is enough for typical builds. The liquid cooling capacity is enough (you won’t install more in a typical AIO-based setup); you can install a 360 mm rad on top of the case and a 120 mm one at the back. The I/O panel has two USB 3.0 ports, USB 3.1 Type-C, an audio jack, and a power button. The top and side panels feature an airflow-optimized perforation pattern to enhance overall performance and filter dust. There’s one unified motherboard cable plug, which makes the installation process faster. 

Aesthetics

Looks are always a subjective matter. The design of the new H6 FLOW is attractive and leaves nothing to be desired.

Performance

The temperatures are very good for the air-based configuration, thanks to the three fans on the front-right side. The noise levels are about average (especially in idle; it’s okay). If you slow them down, they still should give a decent airflow and bring the noise to a comfortable area.

The Verdict

The NZXT H6 FLOW is an ATX-compatible mid-tower chassis measuring 435 × 287 × 415 (L×W×H). It looks very good, thanks to a wraparound glass panel with a seamless edge and great build quality. You get three 120 mm fans at the front-right side. There’s an option to install a combo of 360+120 radiators. If you prefer air cooling – even the 163 mm products will fit (which is a decent result, but 165+ would be a nice feature, as some coolers are taller than 165 mm). Theoretically, the power supply is 200 mm (so I think all used PSUs would work). For the storage options – you can mount one 3.5” or up to two 2.5” drives (not many, but in times of m. two drives, it shouldn’t be an issue). One unified motherboard cable plug makes the installation process faster (and the assembly process is easy). The final result looks very clean, also thanks to the plenty of zip-tie hooks placed internally and externally.
The chassis costs 109.99 USD, which is an attractive offer. From the positive points are three bundled fans (with RGB in the 25 USD more expensive version). In NZXT H6 FLOW, you get great quality, nice features, and attractive looks. From the things that could be better, the thumbscrews should be used to secure the expansion cards, and for some – more drive support would be appreciated. It’s not a big deal, but it would still be nice. One last thing - the rear fan could make the airflow even better, and it's a pity - it's not included in a bundle. So overall – the reviewed chassis has earned our “Silver” award for the package you get.
