NZXT Introduces the H1 Mini-ITX Case and NZXT BLD H1 Mini PC Pre-Build

NZXT, a leading developer of software-powered hardware solutions for PC gaming, today announces the NZXT H1, a small form factor Mini-ITX case that includes an SFX-L 650w 80+ Gold PSU, 140 mm AIO, and PCIe riser card pre-installed for a simple building experience. In addition, the NZXT H1 is the focal point for a new high-end pre-build option for NZXT BLD called H1 Mini PC.

"Creating a small form factor case is something we have always wanted to improve upon because they are often challenging to build in and can hinder the performance of high-end hardware." says Johnny Hou, Founder and CEO of NZXT. "That is why we simplified the building process and focused on performance when designing the NZXT H1. We set out to make this one of the easiest builds you can undertake while leaving no compromises when gaming."
The NZXT H1 is a sleek, small, vertical chassis designed to fit elegantly in any battlestation, without limiting its gaming potential. Capable of housing most full-sized GPUs, the H1 was designed to effectively cool every component to prevent thermal throttling. Cable management is made easy with pre-routed cables and a rear-facing I/O on the bottom of the case which allows for simple cable clean-up.

The included components in the NZXT H1 (SFX-L 650w PSU, 140 mm AIO, and Gen 3 PCIe riser card) represent over a $250 USD value, decreasing the number of items that a customer needs to purchase separately. Additionally, each included component is pre-installed, which saves time and makes the NZXT H1 one of the most simple cases to build in.

The NZXT BLD H1 Mini PC features an Intel Core I9 9900k and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Founder's Edition, giving it the horsepower to the most demanding games. Each H1 Mini PC is backed by NZXT BLD's 2 year warranty on parts and labor. All orders placed before 11 am PST ship the same day ordered.

H1 Features
  • Small But Powerful: The compact vertical design provides a small spatial footprint while maintaining support for most full-sized GPUs on the market so you can maintain your desk real estate without sacrificing graphics power.
  • A Simple Build: The toolless SSD tray and riser card are incredibly simple to install. In addition to pre-routed cables, the motherboard I/O faces down, routing all cables through the bottom of the case for a clean, simplified appearance.
  • Component Integration Integrated power supply and AIO liquid cooler provide a better build experience, along with pre-routed cables that make it easy to manage the clutter and cut down on build time. An integrated PCIe riser card is also included for vertical GPU mounting. Included components are valued over $250 USD.
  • Elegant Airflow: The dual-chamber airflow is thermally designed to allow the CPU, GPU, and PSU to pull in fresh air and exhaust hot air without affecting temperatures of neighboring components.
MSRP Pricing: $349.99 USD

Color Options: Matte White / Matte Black

I like the tower design, but the extra space underneath for cables makes it roughly 60 mm taller(/longer).

I wonder who's the OEM for the PSU, it looks like Seasonic to me.

For PC Gamers that don't like Consoles, but do like the aesthetics of the Xbox Series X :p

Don't get your hopes up. TechpowerUp made a goof. It's $350 just for the case. The full system with the i9 and 2070 super starts at $1999.

ft03 mini is a worse design. NZXT H1 has a better airflow and cooling. Plus more room.

an XBox Series X lookalike... hmm
New xbox is a smart design, by having one large fan exhausting out. way current one is more passive and poor airflow.
Hope the new design will work out.

I would actually buy this if AMD offered more ITX boards. I can sit this right on the TV stand under the TV. Who be perfect for the living room.

That do not matter. What you get in the H1 for PSU and cooler is very good.
Not much difference in SFX PSU choices and 140mm AIO, most is all the same.

The psu in this unit ud a seasonic rebrand which cost about $120-130. Not even mentioning the AIO that makes this case cheaper than a lot of sff pc cases on the market. I think I'll pull the trigger on this one.

It matters.

It uses standard SFX PSU

There is enough space for something like a L12S , AIO isn't the only solution here.

You could argue that they pre-routed the cables to make it easy, that's +ve .

They could simply sell the bare case for like $149

Personally I don't see the point of this bundle.
Thermals are questionable.
^ I won't put hardware worth 650W of PSU power in there.
And I don't want this M22 style AIO either.

idk, maybe because it looks damn near identical to the Xbox Series X.....???? Do you live under a rock?

Obviously the nzxt case has more venting and PC specific aspects.

IMO, I think Corsair started this design cue with the Corsair One Mini PC... but that one has way more better cooling, obviously...

Where's my handle :) Already reviewed by HardwareCanucks in the Tube. Praised it pretty much, but that SFX PSU ain't my thing. Also, I think m-ITX cases should be 3-slots. Yeah, I know.."oh, but it's just one more slot to M-ATX"... no, it's not and it will never be. I just want comfort, but that's me.
