The first NZXT Phantom holds a very special place in my heart, as it was my very first case for my first real computer.
So, what happens when you take the NZXT H440, and mate it with the NZXT Phantom? You get the NZXT Noctis 450. A case that takes two very successful designs, and blends them together to create what should be yet another NZXT success story. The Noctis 450 features a very bold design, that is not just designed for form, but function as well. One of the major improvements the new case makes over the H440, is support for better water cooling gear. Plus, a much greater ventilated surface area, that will provide for a much better thermal results for your build. The case shares the same basic internal design as the H440, so you have an idea as to what to expect. For the external design, the case borrows the good looks of the Phantom line of cases.
The Noctis 450 can be had in two different color options. The black case comes with red LEDs, and the White case comes with blue LEDs. Both the cases are priced at $139.99 at the time of this review, and can be ordered directly from NZXT as well.
