NZXT Noctis 450 Case

We review the NZXT Noctis 450 mid-tower PC chassis. A nice design chassis with very nice LED lighting and refined features with the ability to hide your components inside the chassis. Oh well, have a peek at the NZXT Noctis 450. The Noctis hints a little towards the  NZXT 'crafted' series of PC cases, for which we were impressed.

NZXT has been around for years, building an ongoing reputation with mostly their controversial chassis designs. It all really started with the Guardian chassis years ago and have ever since put numerous chassis designs out on the market. Rising from the ashes of their crafted series is the Phantom 630 full tower chassis, absolutely impressive in many ways as the design is simply great, the features are grand and then the extras still need to kick in. What about a digital fan controller connected to a plethora of pre-equipped fans? 

We have a changing enthusiast PC landscape with features like backplate cut-outs, many water cooling options and digital fan controller. The chassis lends a lot of its looks to the H440 and Phantom 820, a somewhat similar looking chassis with smooth edges and that distinct Phantom front panel design. But a lot is different alright.

With new floating ventilation panels, underglow accent LED lighting (just like a car in need for speed), and an integrated PWM fan hub the chasiss is impressive. The chassis is available as we speak in two color designs, Black with Red LEDs and White with Blue LEDs at a price of €139.

The NZXT Noctis 450 is a mid tower chassis with plenty of room for just about anything you'd like to install in there. These units are available in rather shiny, smooth contours that feel feel stealthy. As stated, NZXT has prepped two versions of the product, one colored white, and the other one black. They all have started shipping.


Small warning, NZXT shipped out a white edition of the chassis, and although that is absolutely gorgeous to see, it's also a pain in the proverbial you know what to photograph in our tidy white photo studio. So I'll start by saying that the photo's won't do the chassis any real justice. But have a peek anyway, head on over to the next page where we'll start up the review.
