Review: NZXT H6 Flow


At the beginning of the month, NZXT announced a new case: the H6. Like the H9, it features a compartmentalized design. However, it comes in a more compact, less bulky format. Let’s take a closer look at this model from every angle!


H6 Flow exterior:

This model is indeed a compartmentalized version, and its dimensions speak for themselves. Indeed, this model is particularly wide at 287 mm. However, the depth and height remain contained: 415 (D) x 435 (H) mm. As for weight, we’re in the acceptable range with 9.4 kg on the scales… A far cry from the 16.3 kg of be quiet!’s Dark Base Pro 901, for example.

As always with NZXT, we’re dealing with a sober product with a sophisticated aesthetic. As you can see, the glass of the front panel matches that of the glass… However, there are no visible pillars. As with Hyte cases, the aim is to emphasize the view inside the configuration. Otherwise, the brand logo can be found at the bottom, on the left. In short, a model with clean lines.

As for the price, as you can see, it’s a case that sells for around €110-120, depending on the store. If you want RGB, you’ll have to reckon with an additional cost of around twenty euros.

The control panel:

The control panel is located at the bottom of the front panel. Unlike some of the brand’s other products, this one is rather complete and usable. We find :

  • 3.5 mm headphone/microphone jack
  • One USB-C 3.2 Gen2
  • Two USB-A 3.2 Gen1
  • A power button

At least, with this configuration, we’ll be able to connect two USB flash drives simultaneously. This is something that’s not possible on the H5 Elite, for example.

The underside:

A closer look at the underside of the case reveals its compartmentalized design. As you can see, the right-hand side is entirely dedicated to ventilation. It features two fan slots. The left-hand side has no practical use whatsoever.

As for the feet, there are four of them, and they are 2.5 cm high. Such a height is useful in order to let the ventilation that would be present at the bottom of the H6 Flow breathe.

The rear of the case is off the beaten track due to its compartmentalized design. So it’s not surprising to find a power supply slot running parallel to the motherboard, as shown here.

On the motherboard, the I/O Shield slot can be seen vertically, followed by seven expansion slots. The latter are honeycombed. Finally, on the far right, there’s a slot for a fan and a large grille that goes all the way down to the bottom: maximum breathability!

The top :

Finally, we come to the top (held in place by a push-pin system) of the case, which features two different textures. On the one hand, the “components” section benefits from a mesh to let the fans breathe as much as possible. On the other side, we have a solid part, where the power supply and storage are located. Likewise, this view reveals a beveled angle – we’ll see what’s behind it next!
