Posted on Wednesday, April 29 2015 @ 13:46:59 CEST by

NZXT shows off its new Noctis 450, a mid-tower case available in black and white. Special features include adjustable I/O LED illumination, an eight-port PWM fan hub, a PSU shroud with SSD mounts, four fans included with fan filters for the intakes, and fully modular HDD cages.

The Noctis 450 measures 220mm x 567mm x 544mm, it's made from SECC steel with an ABS plastic front and weighs 9.5kg. It supports a Mini-ITX/Micro-ATX/ATX sized motherboard, and the front houses three 120mm FN V2 fan. As we're seeing on more and more cases these days, the Noctis 450 has no 5.25" drive bays. The rear has a preinstalled 140mm FN V2 fan and if necessary there's room for two more 140mm or three 120mm fans in the top. Alternatively, with the fans removed there's also room for watercooling radiators in the front, top or rear sections of th ecase.

It features six 3.5" storage bays and two 2.5" SSD mounting slots. With the HDD cage installed there's room for graphics cards as long as 294mm and by removing the HDD cage you can mount cards up to 406.2mm long.

The case has a MSRP of $139.99 (139.99EUR).
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 lightning 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.
