NZXT ceases H1 case sales over safety concerns

A manufacturing fault can cause some cases to "spark and possibly catch fire".



Read more about NZXT ceasing H1 case sales.

It's the riser.

That's a big deal for NZXT, no? They've probably sold a lot of those cases, and they have a lot of parts.

That case came out very quickly. Like, the Xbox 1x was pictured one week and they had it out the next.

The issue seems to be the riser, and possibly a screw that goes into the case shorting it out. Details are scant, as they are obviously trying very hard to hide it right now.

I must say of all of the risers I have ever used they never seem to have anything anywhere near to the underside. Phantek's ones have a plastic shield under them too, and are encased in rubber.

Here's my experience with the H1 and NZXT Support.

Not overly impressed with either, luckily the other components all survived, the case wasn't so lucky.

Can't remember the last time a case was pulled from sales for something like this. Hopefully they get around to updating all these models, probably sell them under the H2 name though to avoid the H1's now tarnished reputation.
