NZXT H440 Razer Edition Mid-Tower PC Case

NZXT has a long history of making high quality cases and power supplies.  While Razer is probably best known for their mice, headphones, and keyboards.  As with most companies that specialize in a few products, they are starting to branch out into other products.  Razer started with gaming systems, then into the Wearables market with the Nabu.  Now, Razer has partnered with NZXT to do a custom edition of NXT’s H440.


Starting with the NZXT H440, which LegitReviews took a look at back in February 2014, Razer worked with NZXT to make changes to the case to make it their own.  Sold under part number CA-H440W-RA, the NZXT H440 Razer Edition (part number CA_H440W-RA) will be available on December 22nd, 2014 and will be sold for $149.99 plus $9.99 shipping.  The standard NZXT H440 case in white or black both run $99.99 with free shipping right now, so you are looking at an extra $60 for the Razer Edition case. Taking a look at the outside of the case, a couple of things immediately jump out.  The first is the Razer three-headed snake logo on the front of the case, and also on the power supply shroud.  Both of which light up in Razer green when the computer is powered up. If you are looking for a black and green themed case for you might not be looking for much longer. This case should go well with NVIDIA GeForce GTX powered rigs and we know many of our readers are big NVIDIA fans!


Razer didn’t stop with just placing their logo in a couple select locations.  They also did a premium paint finish on the case, in matte black.  We have seen cases use a matte finish before so this isn’t really new.  However, the quality of the finish does make it stand out.  Unfortunately, it’s really hard to experience the finish when reading about it.


A couple other modifications to the NZXT H440 include custom lighting on the bottom panel, a little green LED to light up the motherboard rear I/O ports, and custom USB 3.0 ports.  All of these we’ll take a closer look at later.

    where is the place for the optical disk drive?!

    • Steven Kean

      There is no place for an optical drive. Thats a plus and a negative depending on your needs.

  • Philmoeslim

    Well RMA was super easy. Since I ordered on Amazon I just logged in and clicked return/replace. They are overnighting the case to me. Piece of cake

  • Philmoeslim

    My case worked perfectly for 2 weeks, then one of the bottom led lights went out. Haven’t tried to RMA it yet. I will let you know how that goes.


    My case was LED’s were dead on arrival. NZXT support is giving me the
    runaround, not getting anywhere with the warranty/replacement. Would NOT
    recommend this case if you want the LEDs working. Only 1 of the 5 work.

    • khoosoonkhong led keep failing.led dead twice just on the second day of purchased. And i have to carry this heavy casing few times back to the shop..and surprisingly..the shop owner took out all of thier nzxt razer cases and most of them have led problem only the 5th one gt led light. But still the led on top the power button has failed..and im tired of waiting so i just accept it.
