NZXT is offering a special edition of its H440 ATX chassis for fans of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or buyers for whom the colorful trim on the standard H440 is not expressive enough. The aptly-named H440 Hyper Beast Limited Edition combines the standard features of the H440 case with front and side panels covered in timeless artwork from Brock Hofer, creator of the CS:GO M4A1-S Hyper Beast weapon skin.
The Limited Edition case has the same features as the standard H440, including a steel front panel with no external-facing 3.5" or 5.25" drive bays. Liquid cooling enthusiasts will appreciate support for radiators as large as 360mm. Three 120-mm fans and one 140-mm spinner are included, as is an eight-port PWM fan hub.
The H440 measures 8.7"x 20.2" x 18.9" (22 cm x 51 cm x 48 cm) and holds graphics cards up to 11.5" (29.4 cm) long with the removable hard drive cage installed, or 16.8" (42.8 cm) with the cage removed. The lack of external bays translates into enough room for up to 11 internal 3.5" drives or eight 2.5" drives.
NZXT will offer exactly 1,337 units of the H440 Hyper Beast Limited Edition for sale at $200. Each case will have a metal badge with an identification number. The standard H440 without the colorful graphics sells at Newegg for as little as $120. Maybe some of the extra cash goes to pay royalties to the creator of My Pet Monster for that color scheme.
