NZXT has recently released a new stylish chassis called the NZXT Noctis 450 (short for NZXT N450). The new mid tower case features a sleek design that somehow feels like an improved H440. It features an adjustable LED system with lighting switch, integrated power supply shroud with SSD mounts (just like in the S340), and a fully filtered front air intake and PSU exhaust. You also get 4x NZXT FN V2 case fans and an integrated 8-port PWM fan hub. The NZXT Noctis 450 case supports liquid cooling, motherboards from ITX up to full ATX and GPUs up to 406mm long. Check out more details from the official news below.
NZXT Noctis 450 PC Case
NZXT® is redefining bold chassis design with its new PC case, the Noctis 450. The mid tower case is equipped with a unique blend of modern functionality from an award winning chassis and a streamlined yet aggressive exterior design style. Noctis introduces a new overlay of floating ventilation panels and a generous amount of mesh to bring you an uncompromising combination of design and function. The case comes with ambient underglow lighting in addition to NZXT’s signature I/O LEDs and the lighting switch is updated to allow for multi-step adjusted lighting configurations.
The floating panel design provides 10 times more ventilation surface area compared to NZXT’s award winning H440 case. For added cooling, Noctis 450 features a PWM fan hub that can support up to 8 fans. To take advantage of the PWM fan hub, users can connect it to the motherboard to allow for PWM signals to convert to voltage signals for case fans. Users can also connect the PWM fan hub to a Kraken® product and adjust fan profiles via CAM. Additionally, the case comes pre-installed with three FN V2 120mm fans in the front and one FN V2 140mm in the rear to provide optimal cooling out of the box. Supporting both 140mm and 120mm fans, the steel top and front panels come Kraken ready and can fit radiators up to 360mm.
Noctis features NZXT’s popular and award winning power supply shroud, concealing unsightly cables and allowing for effortless cable management. For storage options, two SSD trays are mounted on top of the shroud while five modular steel hard drives trays are installed in front of the chassis.
Poised and ready to take your build to the next level, the Noctis is available now for pre-order at the NZXT Armory Store in Matte Black and Glossy White for $139.99.
