Sorry! I can't hear you!!

This case is mental quiet! Inaudible in fact!
I've used this case a couple of times in the past, I love it to pieces :)
It's so well constructed, the 2015 edition is an improvement even over the original H440.
The finish of the paint was good before. The new edition is immense, having the 2 next to each other is crazy! The paint definitely a lot more scratch resistant this time around :) and looks even better too!
The inclusion of a PWM hub is great and keeps those 4!! included fans ticking along so quietly that you wouldn't know they were on if you couldn't see them - yet somehow, they push so much air that ask of my NAS HDDs sit below 35 degrees even under heavy load :)
I love the amount of room you get for cable management, although I've not got multiple PCIe cables traipsing through the back, it's still super nice to have more than enough room behind the mobo tray.
Even in a windowless case. I love that each time I open it in greeted with 2 stunning ssd's sitting on top of a clean, dust free thanks to the front dust filter! PSU shroud :) it just looks so tidy with 2 ssd's in their wicked little bays!
Volume, again, it's crazy! I've got this rig on 24/7 doing my entire family's file storage needs and it's perfect! Got a little ITX Xeon build, with a modest 9tb of space, but the new and improved drive caddies are awesome! That's the 2nd biggest reason I chose this case!! 11 freaking HDDs in a solidly build, great looking, super optimised mid-tower?! I'll take this case over anything else any day of the week!!
Keep in mind, I'm a system builder, build gaming PCs for friends and family, am an avid tinkerer, etc. I cannot believe that I didn't go with this case first! Before I realised there was a new version with 11 HDD bays, I HDDs a Node 304, ughhh..
Had a Phanteks Enthoo Mini XL DS, meh.
Had a Be quiet! Silent base 800... No no no, never get that case!
The H440 trumps every single one, every time, forever! :)
NZXT, make the H450 even half as good as the H440 and you'll have a better case then any other company in the case space :D
