Description

The N450 is an amazing case - there was plenty of room for everything. I opted for a red/black theme, so I tried to keep everything within that color scheme. I like how there is a shroud that hides the power supply, and you can actually mount two SSDs on top of the shroud. The case also comes with an awesome looking underglow and I/O panel illumination. I ran the NZXT lighting kit through the case and also mounted the NZXT red case fan to give it illumination from the inside.

I was able to overclock the processor to 4.8ghz with no effort using the ASUS built in overclocking tools (I'm going to try and push it to at least 5ghz) and the two graphics cards were also easily overclocked w/ EVGA PrecisionX. Originally, I tried to 2-way SLI a 970 FTW and a 970 FTW+...however these two cards are not SLI compatible...so I opted for a second FTW+. The power supply and liquid cooler both support Corsair Link, which is pretty cool.

I like the GTX 970 SLI. It makes me cringe whenever people buy 980s for about the same price as dual GTX 970s.

Hi all,

last weekend I build a new setup with the NZXT Noctis 450 case but now I have some questions.

Please can you tell me how you connect the 2 CPU fans and the PWM Hub? I have same case but have some problems!! I connected my fans from the Corsair H80i to CPU-main and CPU-OPT and connected the PWM Hub to Casefan 1 but, now I can't control the speeds from the PWM fans.

If I split the CPU Fans from the H80i (With Y splitter) to CPU-Main and connect the PWM Hub to CPU-OPT will this work or do i blow up the CPU-Main header?

Any help please?

I think he needs to "crossfire" more nvidia cards... Cool build though, I'm giving it a +1!
