NZXT makes some of the best-looking PC cases around, and it's now bringing those design chops to small form factor PCs. The H1 mini-ITX case is super compact, boasting a sleek vertical footprint that retains support for most full-sized graphics cards on the market. And while cable management in mini-ITX cases can be quite the challenge, NZXT is helping simplify things with an integrated power supply and 140mm AIO liquid cooler that come with their own pre-routed cables.

The power supply is a fully modular SFX-L 650W 80 Plus Gold unit, which should be enough power for the majority of high-end GPUs. There is also an included riser card for your GPU so it can be mounted vertically, and there is room for 2.5-slot cards up to 305mm long.

The toolless SSD trays will hold two 2.5-inch drives, and they sit at the top of the case beside the PSU. All your cables are meant to be routed downwards, including your motherboard I/O, so you'll have to tilt the case to reach its ports. This allows for neater cable management since the wires will exit from the bottom of your PC instead of the rear, but it does mean less convenient access.

The H1 shares many design elements with its bigger siblings, featuring also perforated side panels, a tinted tempered glass front panel, and a minimalist top that houses the I/O connectors. The two side panels serve as air intakes and are filtered, while hot air is exhausted out the back.

The case will retail at S$539 and be available to buy here in mid-April in either matte white or black. Oddly enough, the latter colour makes it look a lot like the new Xbox
