How many times have you laid awake at night unable to fall asleep because your computer is running so loudly? There are tasks that you need to have completed such as a Windows update or a virus scan but it’s inconvenient to do so while you’re using the machine. If only there was a sound-proof case that could keep the sound minimized to allow you to keep your machine on all night without disturbing the peace…NZXT has a solution – the “Whisper”. The NZXT Whisper is a full tower ATX case that features sound proof material on the inside panels of the case. Will this material keep all of the noise of the processor and video card coolers out of earshot? Will the vibrations of the hard drives and power supply be heard? Could this sound-proof material raise temperatures inside of the case? Join me as I thoroughly investigate the one-of-a-kind NZXT Whisper full tower ATX case.
The box that the NZXT Whisper comes in is quite large and very heavy. The image of the case is mildly visible on the front of the box and on the back you can see the inside of the case, and some of the features that the case features. On either side of the box you’ll see the specifications. Once you open the box, you’ll find the case is securely held in place by two large Styrofoam pieces.
If you dig into the case, you’ll find a black pouch that holds the accessories. Included with the case is a never-ending supply of screws for your optical drives, 3.5” and 2.5” hard drives, as well as motherboard screws and standoffs. You’ll also find an instruction manual, two unique clips to help you achieve better cable management, and a rubber power supply bracket to eliminate vibration noises from the power supply.
Now let’s take a look at the NZXT Whisper itself.
