NZXT presented six new enclosures at this year’s Computex. These are the direct successors of the H200(i), H500(i) and H700(i) models. We have now taken a closer look at one of these successor models. This is the H210i, the cheapest and smallest i-model of the H-series.

Scope of Delivery
The scope of delivery is quite extensive. In addition to the usual screws and installation instructions and two pre-installed 120 mm fans, NZXT has a lot more to offer. Since the front panel only has a four-pin jack connector, a Y-splitter cable is included to connect the usual headsets. Also included is an ATX to SFX adapter so that both ATX and SFX power supplies can be installed. Furthermore there are some cable ties and a small GPU support in black.
We were positively surprised by the front panel connection of the case. This is only one plug in the housing, not several as with many other housings. If this does not fit to the motherboard, NZXT also includes an adapter to split the connectors.
Externally, the case differs only marginally from its predecessor. There is only a difference in the fixings of the side panels and the front panel. The side parts are now only fastened with one knurled screw each and can otherwise easily be hooked in. For the common user, this simple installation option is a blessing, as it saves him a lot of work.
Viewed from above, the quite simple structure of the case is striking. The lid is simple and clearly structured. We can’t detect any anomalies. The I/O panel attached to the cover and the slot for a fan, which is already occupied by the way, are also visible from the outside. NZXT relies here on a 120 mm model. The I/O panel as well as the housing is quite simple. It has a four-pin audio connector (Y-splitter cable included), a USB 3.0-A and a USB 3.1-C connector.
The housing is available in black, black/white and black/red. Externally, however, it is very well processed. NZXT relies on high-quality material. We didn’t notice any obvious weaknesses.
