NZXT's new H1 V2 Mini Case Launched : A perfect case for a mini Gaming PC

NZXT has released a new updated version of its popular mini-ITX case - the H1. The new and updated H1 V2 model features a much better cooling capacity and a larger volume so that it can house more better hardware. It has updated its internals to overcome the issues that were there during the launch of the V1.

The H1 V2 is slightly larger in all aspects when compared to the OG H1. This allows it to accomodate larger GPU's upto 324mm vs the 305mm on the original V1. The PCIe riser cable has also been updated and is Gen 4 compatible and supports the latest GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA.

The new case comes preinstalled with a 140mm AIO liquid cooler that's compatible with AMD AM4 motherboards as well as LGA115x/1200/1700 Intel incl latest 12th gen. They also preinstall a good quality 750W sfx PSU compared to the 650W of the original case. Also comes preinstalled with a two channel fan hub that can be controlled by the NZXT CAM software.

Changes from H1 V1’s PCIe Riser Cable


NZXT conducted a series of tests to compare the V1 and V2 cases and they are listed below.

"We used HWiNFO to capture the average and max temperature of CPU and GPU with Prim 95 and FurMark running. For each model, it was tested for approximately 1 hour to allow us to see the testing result being stable. The temperatures are presented in delta T above an ambient temperature at 23°C. Case fan, Air cooler fan, Pump settings are set to 100% full speed. 

Regarding CPU temperature improvement for the new H1, we can see a 1.6°C decrease in average temperature; we can see a 3.6°C decrease for GPU temperature"
