To me this case looks like a combo on the H440 & a Phantom case unless that is the idea. Still looks nice tho

The front reminds me a lot of the old Lexa S with a bit of Phantom and a Switch/Phantom window.

Personally I think it looks horrible :|

IMO It doesn't look no where near as good as the H440, From what you're saying is it looks like they just threw it together.

NEED FOR SPEED
the case.

Not a fan at all. Its a shame as they've been on a role aesthetically recently.

I think its the P440 aka Phantom 440 because IMHO thats exactly what it is.

People may not like the looks but the Phantom outsells the H440 in huge quantities so this will sell. If you want plain the H440 is there so no need to moan.

If you want better airflow but like the H440 layout BOOOM job done bases covered business arse protected.

Job done.

The ONLY issues with the white case is the dated blue LED's - that bit is fail and I can honestly say if Mr Teller was still working there it wouldnt have happened. Thats the only part NZXT have slipped on and its just them going back to their old tacky dated ways and I hope it stops now and doesnt get worse......

I actually liked the phantom casess. Its a smoother, rounder style. This is just a bit random.
