  • Excerpt: The NZXT Whisper doesn't have all the flash of a traditional gaming case, but its striking look and powerful sound-killing capabilities make it just right for the aurally sensitive enthusiast.
  • Pros: Very good noise-dampening capabilities, Tons of expansion room
  • Cons: Does not run completely silently, Case size and layout may cause some trouble for cable routing, Power button easy to hit accidentally

  • Conclusion: Despite the retail box having been battered during shipping, the presentation NZXT puts forth is excellent. You won't see flashy gaming artwork but instead a subdued and elegant styling to it that is in line with it's "Whisper" name. Care is also taken in the packaging of the case.
  • Pros: Very quiet operation, Insulating foam on side panels, Attractive design, Plenty of hard drive bays, Accommodates E-ATX motherboards and long video cards, Front e-SATA port, Tool-less retainer
  • Cons: Cooling performance, Only full length devices can be installed in external bays (ie, no fan controllers, etc), Shallow door clearance, Limited cable management options, No firewire port, IO Panel locking mechanism

  • Cons: Pricey, Noisy fans negate the sound dampening feature, Bland interior - server roots obvious, Many PSUs require extension cables due to case layout - not included, Mainboard compartment quite compact for the case size, Screw-less system does not hold too well, Plastic top I/O construction very fr...

NZXT Whisper Review

15 December 2008
  • Conclusion: The NZXT Whisper has quite a bit going for it, not the least of which is its apparent ability to silence even the nosiest of devices. Solidly designed and constructed, the use of foam dampening works to quiet fans and vibrations, giving a much needed peace to users.
