Introduction: NZXT HUSH

I can still clearly remember my "old" computer from last summer. One year isn't really that long ago, but I have gone through four cases, three motherboards, three processors, and four video cards since then. Back in the summer of '06 I had an old steel case with modified openings on the top and front to accommodate the last two of my five 120mm cooling fans. My memories are slowly fading, but one thing will never be forgotten: that computer would make an airport seem quiet.

In the past year the industry has benefited from more efficient components and better equipment, which in turn has allowed computer enthusiasts to enjoy their personal computer without earplugs. You can’t win the hearts of computer enthusiasts, system builders, and hardcore gamers by simply releasing one good product and calling it quits to hardware improvements, so it’s a good thing that companies such as NZXT have built a reputation based on producing one great new product after another. In this review, the brand new HUSH mid-tower ATX case from NZXT’s Silent Series is examined.

Game On, In Peace.
Introducing the NZXT HUSH, a chassis designed from grounds up to be quiet while having ample cooling. Game and work without all the noise, thanks to the sound dampening foam that is used on the top, side, and bottom panels of the case. Worried about cooling? Not to worry, the HUSH is equipped with two 120mm fans running at low speeds while still achieving high levels of air flow. High end gaming requires faster hard drives and power supplies, so we've installed rubber padding near fans and hard drives to further reduce the sound level. The HUSH also ships with USB 2.0, Firewire, and HD audio support. Bring more silence to your gaming experience with HUSH.
