NZXT H7 series comes with major improvements over NZXT H710 and H710i casings, there are 3 types of H7 models, those are H7, H7 flow, and H7 elite.

120mm fans are available in both rear and front panels, and it also supports verticle GPU mounting. There is enough space for storage devices and for power supply.

These models can buy around 130$ – $200. With the economic crisis, all the spare parts became more valuable, however, this is a good product with a reasonable price. In this article, we gonna discuss NZXT H7 and its features and characteristics.

Design

H7 Flow

NZXT H7 series is available in 3 colors and the H7 Elite is available in 2 colors, all models have the option to attach a tempered glass side panel according to chassis color.

  • All-black case with tinted glass
  • All-white case with clear glass
  • Black & white case with clear glass

Although the previous H510 flow casing is good, there wasn’t enough place for a top-mounted radiator support. The newly released H7 flow has enough space to place the radiator.

Perforated metal and fans work well together. Overall, I like the front panel, and it would look great with a little RGB.

There are 2 USB 3.2 gen ports, USB type-c ports, audio sockets, and a power button located on the top of the casing.

As well as its perforated front and top panels, this sleek case features widened channels, hooks, straps, and toolless entry.

The new H7 series cases have a spacious chassis that allows for some of the most ambitious builds possible.  We’ll cover all of the features of the NZXT H7 Flow.

Features

NZXT h7 flow front panel: Perforated

Perforated metal combined with fans clearly works well. Overall, I like the front panel, and it looks great with RGB lighting.

NZXT H7 Flow case

Some users faced problems with front panel connectors, especially AMD buildings.

The documentation describes the casing as an Intel standard front panel connector, and there was no adaptor for other manufacturer panel connectors.

This can be plugged into the Front PANEL header if your motherboard uses the Intel Front PANEL layout.

If you are an AMD or non-Intel user You have to attach a breakout cable.

If you need this cable and one was not included with your NZXT Case, please reach out to the NZXT Customer Support team for further assistance.

NZXT h7 flow cables: Building Simplified

Award-winning manufacturers like NZXT especially improved cable management options, like wider cable channels, and hooks for holding the cable in the right place.

Also, the front panel connects are all grouped together into one cable, you can save me so much more time than others.

H7 Flow White

NZXT H7 flow will be a better choice because of its capacity and clearance, and cool, Quiet design.

Easy removal Tool-less to front & side panels

H7 Flow

Is H7 Flow PC case panels can remove without screws?

Yes, The front and side panel of the unit can be disassembled without any tool, most users will be like that.

The H7 supports the following radiator sizes:

Unlike the NZXT H510 Flow, this supports the radiator properly.

  • Front: Up to 360mm
  • Top: Up to 360mm
  • Rear: Up to 140mm

How many fans do the H7 series cases support?

The H7 supports the following fan sizes:

  • Front: 3 x 120mm or 3 x 140mm
  • Top: 3 x 120mm / 2 x 140mm
  • Rear: 1 x 120mm / 1 x 140mm

If you are still experiencing bad temps with the new graphic card (RTX 3060), the reason is new graphic card is too large and does not fit properly to the pc casing like NZXT H510i.

NZXT H7 Flow is the problem solver, in general, you can decrease 5 degrees Celsius or maybe more by upgrading the PC case, but this depends on your old PC casing, fans, and coolers.

NZXT H7 Flow Cooling

H7 flow Cooling capabilities are better than NZXT h510. 3x 120 or 2x 140mm fans, or one 360mm radiator can attach instead of the 140mm fan in the previous edition. Also, a perforated top panel increases the thermal performance of the unit.

Noise

Some complaint about the H7 flow casing has a noise like a humming sound coming from pc case used in the room (moderately quiet room). Don’t panic I have a solution for this issue.

But all in all, It has excellent noise control, which you can clearly understand following the below graph.

How to reduce the noise level

Method 1

If your PC is on the table/desk when gaming you can notice that the desk vibrates at a certain fan speed. See the below chart and configure it as follows. put them to a static percentage in NZXT Cam and the vibration/sound went away.

Method 2

When the Kraken fan speed is at 40% and above You can use rubber grommets this is another way to fix the issue.

Every gamer hopes for greater performance and aesthetics, especially if they build their own system. To improve the cool look and feel NZXT company has introduced the top panel with small holes.

FAQs

Do I need the H-Series Breakout Cable?

Latest motherboards do not need breakout cables anymore, most manufacturers made their front panel layout even as part of larger header connections. But older motherboards and non-standard array connectors still need the cable.

Can I purchase any of the front panels separately?

Replacement components are only available for customers who require warranty replacements. But if there are spare parts in the inventory there is a possibility to buy them with customer support instructions.

Can I have multiple liquid coolers mounted to the H7 series cases?

Yes, you absolutely can! Furthermore, H7 cases can support full-size coolers in every mounting location simultaneously. This makes the H7 an excellent choice for customers looking to build custom liquid-cooled gaming PCs!

How many RGB devices do RGB & Fan Controller v2 support?

Up to 160 RGB LEDs can be powered simultaneously with the RGB & Fan Controller v2 that comes with the H7 Elite. It includes 6 RGB channels that support 40 LEDs each.

However, this only applies to the RGB section of a fan, not to the motor’s power. Please keep in mind that not all F-Series RGB Fans can be daisy-chained (like the ones included with the H7 Elite). Instead, a channel on our RGB & Fan Controller v2 will be occupied by these fans.

Conclusion

This is a high-quality, low-noise, and decent price option for PC builders. It is a versatile liquid cooling system with an easy installation process. NZXT H7 Flow is perfect for those who are looking to upgrade their old pc casing for good airflow and excellent performance.
