NZXT H700i Black Friday 2019
you asked they delivered the k7 xx from a kg and mass drop is back with memory foam ear pads a detachable cable and premium sound for all-around listening receive a free mass drop mini mic if you order through the link below in the next two days what’s going on guys and welcome back to the channel hope you’re all doing well today we’re taking a look at a brand new case from NZXT this is their H 700 I as part of their new H series of cases this is actually the flagship model at $200 u.s. and Miss RP it is pretty steep is actually one of the more expensive cases I’ve taken a look at in recent months to be honest but it does come jam-packed with a ton of features some of you guys might find pretty interesting so we’ll be taking a full look at all of that to date this is a mid tower ATX actually up to e ATX motherboards are supported and the build quality first off I just want to talk about the exterior here is built like a tank we’ve got full metal and glass construction for the most part everything from the front and top panels to the side the tempered glass side panel here absolutely looks fantastic and really just feels rock-solid there is a metal side panel on the left as well that has a quick release latch a button on the back side which drops it down I did not realize that when I first took it out of the box and tried to pry the the side panel off with my bare fingers and actually ended up snapping off one of the plastic latches so shame on and DXT for using plastic for that latch and shame on me for being an idiot additionally this also kind of gives a unique look to the case all these sort of ventilated holes here that is full on ventilation there is no dust filtration behind these holes with the exception of the front there is a dedicated dust filter that covers a three included a or F 120 fans you also get an A or F 140 at the back with flexible mounting strips you could also slot in a 120 it looks like additionally you can take the top panel off and that will reveal radiator mounting to get up to 280 or 360 either at the front or the top so plenty of water cooling options for front IO we’ve got audio and headphone jacks two USB three two USB 2 and a power button with a led around it there is no reset on this case be aware and it’s got a very nice sort of minimalistic look very akin to the s3 40 in some ways of course everyone’s going to have their own opinions on what looks better this or that you guys let me know in the comments below what you think additionally on the backside here we do have a reservoir mount which is pretty cool that would go right in front of your graphics cards there’s another one on the very iconic blue bar that now kind of goes over the power supply shroud and then additionally on the back we have a removable PSU bracket so you would actually insert that unit from behind also as you can see this case is lifted off the floor with the four rubber feet that so that’s about gives you about an inch of clearance so you don’t actually suffocate the power supply at the bottom which if you mount fan down you do get a dedicated dust filter for that slides in and out very easily and securely it also feels high-quality even though it is made of plastic now in addition to all this one of the top selling points that NZXT has really been trying to drive home with this case is the integrated RGB lighting there’s actually a strip that’s pre-built in right at the top they include an additional strip that you can place wherever in the case and that connects to an integrated built in Smart Hub which kind of acts like a grid plus and a hue plus so it gives you fan control and RGB lighting control functionality in one small device that actually is mounted behind the top portion of this blue bar here we’re gonna take a closer look at that well that’s really interesting because it actually uses machine learning in order to give you a custom tailor-made fan curve based on your system thermals and noise levels which is pretty sweet so whether all of this adds up to being worth two hundred dollars remains to be seen till the end of the video but for now let’s go ahead and crack this guy open and start building inside of the H 700 I alright so here we are taking a look at the inside for the first time you’ll notice that we have pre-installed stand ups which is great for an ATX motherboard which we will be using today no rubber grommets on this end of the case you can see there’s just a really wide cutout here where you can route your cables so not exactly sure how that would look unless you had like a radiator or some fans here to block out that cabling not sure exactly if it would look messy or not but you don’t get any rubber grommets the right side gets a pass because it just has this huge cable routing bar that you could pretty much just pass cables underneath and you wouldn’t really see where they’re coming out of from the motherboard tray anyway but let’s just go ahead and mount our ATX board in here we’re rocking x2 99 system today I’ve already sort of prepped the motherboard in the interest of time io panel has already been installed there we go this is the gaming pro gaming Pro carbon a/c x2 99 board from MSI with a 70 960 X I believe it’s a 16 core 32 thread part for those of you interested and I like how the middle standoff is a little bit raised so it just helps you get aligned that much easier alright our motherboard is installed for the most part and since we’ve got in a i/o here also courtesy of NZXT we’re gonna actually mount this to the top now before we change angles here you’ll also notice that you get a nice look at our built-in RGB strip here and as I mentioned earlier NZXT also includes another flexible strip for you to mount anywhere else in your case and you can see connect it right here but more on that later let’s get this radiator installed so you guys are looking at the top of the case right now with the top panel removed of course and we’ve actually got some flexible mounting strips once again for up to a two hundred and eighty or three hundred and sixty millimeter radiator this bracket this whole black bracket is actually removable first off it’s made of steel very sturdy it’s got four thumb screws here which are incredibly tight out of the box so you’ll need a screwdriver at first to let them loose and once those are removed this bracket seems to just pop out like that wait one moment while I fix this to the radiator yes I know I’m putting fractal venturi x’ on an NZXT Aereo Sumi I like to be incestuous sometimes don’t quote me on that that can be taken out of context way too easily so this would go in like so righteous so it looks like the only way you to route these to the back of the motherboard tray is just underneath or to the right of the radiator through the actual bracket which doesn’t seem like the most elegant mounting solution or a routing solution but it does seem to be covered by that blue cable management bar I’ll just route these over here for now I’m not gonna plug them in just yet we’ll get around to that power supply mount is fairly straightforward we got four thumb screws which will remove this bracket and you fix the bracket to the power supply and in everything goes from the back side of the chassis looks like these are captive as well one little piece useful little end go the cables followed by the power supply and we have nearly an infinite amount of power supply clearance as you’ll see in just a moment let me get this guy screwed in now you get quite a few mounting options for SSDs or two and a half inch drives rather inside of this case first off you’ve got a mounting point right here these are all removable trays so you get one right here and two on top of your power supply shroud as well as two more behind your motherboard tray which we’ll take a look at later but this is actually pretty cool these are fully to list so there’s a little a little bar here that you push down on and that just kind of easily releases the tray you’d obviously need four screws to mount the SSD to the tray but putting it back is also a breeze you can kind of just push down like that and it goes back into place it gets even cooler on top of the power supply shroud so all of these ventilation holes actually serve as a sort of mountable grid where you can actually place these trays anywhere on the grid and I should also mention that they’re they’re fairly sturdy once they’re locked in they don’t wiggle around at all you can even mount it this way mount it horizontally like that if you wanted to you could remove one or both of them it’s actually kind of fun it’s sort of like building with Legos in a sense and additionally you also get some mounting or some routing holes behind those trays for your state of cables there’s also a mounting hole behind this cable bar right here if you were to mount a drive to this tray here we only have one SSD that’s going in this system I say we mount it to this one because I’m kind of curious as to how the routing goes from behind this bar hopefully we don’t have to remove the bar in order to get the cables over here so I was gonna mount this and actually wire it up right now but it seems that in order to get access to the cable routing hole behind this bar you kind of need to remove the drive cage that’s underneath this power supply shroud so why don’t we take a look at the drive cage first and then we’ll come back to mounting this SSD so here’s a look at the drive cage it can support up to two two and a half inch or three and a half inch drives and it looks like we’ve got some thumb screws here which if you undo you can remove the drive trays individually for easy mounting they are steel this is this is a huge plus a lot of times drive cages I get overlooked and the manufacturers cheap out on materials using some really thin plastic at things like that but these looked very sturdy happy about that additionally you might notice that this entire cage can be removed so it’s fully modular the cooler part however is that the cage itself is mounted onto these rails so that if you loosen the four screws at the bottom of the case you can slide this entire cage all the way front or all the way back to give you either more clearance for a radiator at the front or more cable routing room for your power supply etc so that’s actually very flexible in fact I’m going to remove my drive cage entirely we need like I said earlier access to that cable routing hole for our SSD at the front of the case drive cage is fully removed now I’m gonna try to pass our SATA cable alright there we go and now for our power cable alright it seems like it’s actually pretty easy to get those cables routed through that hole even though it is relatively small flipping it around to the other side you can now see we’ve got the necessary connections for our SSD I’m gonna plug those in first and now we can mount it back to the case there it is super clean looking actually love the way that works out so guys just bear with me a moment I’m gonna route all of our front panel connectors to the motherboard which shouldn’t take me too long I should also mention that this case has two USB 2.0 front panel connectors a one’s actually I guess not a front panel connector it’s for your Smart Hub so in order for the Smart Hub to interface with cam etc you will need to connect it to a USB 2 header on your board so bear that in mind in order to take full advantage of all this cases connectivity and features you will need 2 USB 2 headers on your mainboard as I’m wiring up this 24 pin ATX cable looks pretty cramped up here there’s almost like no no way for me to route this cable behind the side of the bar kinda throughout it up top of the bar if you know what I mean which I don’t personally mine but some people will but if you had some sleeved extensions maybe some fabric ones or some paracord for example you’d probably be able to get away with routing it you know underneath this tight space but otherwise if you got a big bulky cable like I do right now pretty much you got to route it towards the top I guess it would also help if you had a right angle 24 pin connector on your board as well but clearly we don’t now before we install our graphics card I want to quickly point out that you don’t actually need to remove this blue bar here in order to do your build unless of course you want to do some more tidy with these cables as I mentioned earlier it’s kind of hard to get this 24 pin underneath this portion of the bar you can’t remove the bar if you want to add some more flexibility there I think there’s three screws one at the top one at the bottom and one at the back or actually on the side here holding it in place very simple and easy to remove doesn’t take much time at all but you don’t actually need to remove it in order to complete your build so that’s good news let’s move on to the graphics card we’re gonna be installing a reference rx Vega 64 because up until this point the only thing I’ve really done with it besides the launch video and initial benchmarks is keep it in the background of my other videos as a set problem and considering how frickin expensive and hard to find these cards are I felt like it was a disservice just leaving it sitting there collecting dust for so long so now we get to put it in the build it doesn’t really quite match I don’t know it doesn’t really match but it kind of does that the contrast is it’s kind of eye catching to me very standard mounting procedure with the graphics cards here in the H 700 I get some thumb screws you get one two three four five six seven expansion slots B yotaphone let’s finish wiring this sucker up now where should the VGA cables come from do we put them up from okay so this slot here just doing some tidying over here don’t mind me alright guys at this point we are ready to tackle our cable management and I got to be honest this case has some of the best-looking cable management features I have seen in a mid-tower in quite some time the cable channels that they’ve kind of pre-installed here first of which are fully modular so if you like any of this and you don’t like to design or direction that NZXT is going with this sort of style of cable management you can remove all of it so there’s really not much to complain about in that department but if you want to keep it around these channels kind of give you even if you’re a first-time or novice builder it really gives you a good idea of where these cables should be flowing and the sort of path they should be taking behind your motherboard tray additionally you’ve got a bunch of velcro straps to keep everything flat that way you can actually mount your power your your power supply your side panel on additionally we also have those two more SSD trays at the back they are sort of these little trays that are mounted with a single thumb screw on each one very simple and straightforward pretty familiar design that we’ve seen now I should mention the the smart hub that’s built in here is say the powered so you’ll need to keep that in mind and there are only three PWM four pin headers on that device however you could attach a couple splitters to it it looks like NZXT already done that so you can expand the number of fans you connect to this thing significantly so currently they already have all four of the included fans wired up to that Smart Hub and you get an additional one two three four available connectors for four more fans and we do have the two that we had on the a i/o which we are going to be connecting and as well boom and boom and continue tidying up these cables and there it is folks within about a minute to a minute and a half we are done with our cable management for the most part thanks to the ingenious cable routing channels that we have here I actually think they worked quite well this was a total no-brainer and the only issue I would say is like the when you have all the fan splitters and the fan headers it gets a little bit bunched up in this area let’s actually see if we can put the side panel on without much issue just so we can verify now remember I did break the the top latch one of the latches here so it’s not gonna mount flush but that goes on just super easy even if this was not broken I’m sure it would it would go on just fine but that is great that is some fantastic cable managed and not to mention you get the power supply shroud as well so you can hide any excess cabling under there also look at this this guy 50/50 connector was just chilling here it’s kind of nice to already have that ready to go out of the box not used to that but it is something I could definitely get used to I should also mention if the LED strip that they include is not only RGB but magnetic as well which is a huge plus so at this point people we are ready to slap back on our panels and fire this up for the first time and that way we can start messing around with our Smart Hub to see exactly how that works [Music] alright guys so I spend a good chunk of time in the cam software getting acquainted with the adaptive noise reduction feature that interfaces with our smart hub inside of this case and the way it works is you open up the cam software and you go through about an hour-long calibration process during that time you can’t really use your system regularly it basically just tests it for a full hour puts it under load tests all the the temperatures and noise emissions that load versus idle and then after that our cam will spit out a custom adaptive fan curve that is in theory going to be better suited for your system than say a preset fan curve and it actually does give you a chart comparing temperatures and noise emissions from from a preset fan curve versus the new adaptive curve we actually saw a three degree reduction going from preset to adaptive on our CPU I’m going from 64 to 61 degrees Celsius which isn’t too bad and our GPU which is the reference rx Vega 64 dropped five degrees Celsius going from 74 to 69 degrees C combined we’ve essentially just shaved eight degrees Celsius off of our two main components here by basically doing nothing as far as acoustics go going from the preset to the adaptive fan curve basically didn’t make a difference in fact we actually incur 2.3 decibel noise increase so the system got a fraction louder even though you can’t really hear it to the naked ear but I think that’s maybe attributed to the fact that we have a reference rx Vega 64 in here with a very loud blower style fan that would potentially drown out any sort of noise benefit that the adaptive fan curve might have given us so it just goes to show that the effectiveness of this technology is really gonna vary from system to system which makes it infinitely difficult for me to tell you guys how it’s going to impact your rigs at home and that sort of just makes it even more difficult to justify the sort of premium price that is attached to this case I can really only speak on behalf of my own data which is that the system is now running a bit cooler but it’s still just as loud as it was before we ran that whole calibration process at the end of the day though this is a great case I mean has a ton of great features it’s modernized for 2017 with the exception of no USB 3.1 type C at the front panel which I forgot to mention earlier but why why doesn’t it have it I don’t understand but other than that it’s got a ton of custom water-cooling support much more than the s 340 or the H 440 however I feel like if you’re not doing some heavy custom water cooling users of the SS 340 or s 340 elite aren’t gonna be missing much with the H 700 I unless you really value that Smart Hub device and adaptive fan curve technology those are my two cents on this case guys let me know what your own thoughts are in the comments below do you think it’s worth the 200 odd price tag blow that up and be sure to toss a like on the video if you enjoyed it it does help a lot as always guys I’m halibut wits thank you guys so much for watching stay tuned for more tech stuff coming at you really soon and I will see y’all in the next video
