Most of the PC community or PC enthusiasts opt for computers with parts of their own choice. Custom made PCs have always been something we are proud of, just like what we do at Buildawn for you guys. But NZXT has decided to give us custom built computers and this is where the NZXT H1 Mini PC comes into action. And to be honest, it’s not bad.

DESIGN

First impressions, just looking at it, the NZXT H1 Mini PC is a really small machine. It comes in a tiny form factor and looks pretty neat. Not flashy, just perfect for those of us who like clean setups. It comes in two colors- Matte White and Matte Black. Personally, I like the black one. So opening up the thing is pretty easy and unconventional. You just pop out the front and back panels and can even slide the top casing off upwards. You get presented with the RTX 2070 Super Founders Edition GPU.
It’s packed tightly and the I/O ports are actually on the bottom. Not to worry, they provide one USB 2.0 port, one USB type C port, and a headphone jack on the top with the power button.

PERFORMANCE

Moving on to the actual system, the NZXT H1 mini packs an Intel Core i9-9900K processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB GPU, along with 16 Gigabytes of 3000MHz DDR4 RAM.
The performance is better than expected. And the cooling system is good as well. Surprisingly, the PC manages to stay cool and silent. More emphasis on the word ‘Silent’ because this PC doesn’t make much noise at all. It stays really quiet even during heavy gaming. It works just fine while rendering videos too. So the GPU handling is pretty good. There might be some kind of performance downsides to CPU heavy tasks, but not something that might worry you. Other than that, the NZXT H1 mini PC has an amazing performance.

Small but powerful

PRICING

The NZXT H1 Mini PC is priced at $2000 which is a fair price and is available on NZXT BLD or buildawn.com. The pricing does not differ much from assembling the parts on your own which is a bonus. I have no complaints with the price itself.

SHOULD I BUY IT?

It totally depends on you. If the PC is the right fit for your budget and needs, why not? But I wouldn’t recommend settling on it just because it is a pre-built PC. You always have us if you need help on getting your dream PC, right?

CONCLUSION

The NZXT H1 Mini PC is actually a pretty good machine for the price. There are a lot of upsides to it compared to the downsides. If I had to name the downsides it would be a too simple design (that could be just because I like flashy stuff? ) and the IO ports which are on the bottom. The performance is great and the pricing is also acceptable.

Thank you!
