The new GRID+ V3 delivers the perfect balance between silence and cooling
Smarter digital fan control
Los Angeles, CA – October 17th, 2017 – NZXT today announces the newest member of the GRID+ family, providing a smart solution for advanced digital fan control.
“Finding the right mix between cooling and noise reduction can be complex and time-consuming, even for experienced builders. GRID+ V3 provides a smart solution for advanced digital fan control using our intuitive CAM dashboard. We’re also introducing Adaptive Noise Reduction, allowing you to reduce fan noise up to 40%. With GRID+ V3, you won’t have to choose between silence and cooling–you’ll get the perfect balance of both.” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder and CEO.
By measuring fan noise levels, CPU and GPU load, and system temperature, CAM leverages machine learning to provide the optimal thermal profile with the lowest possible fan noise. Custom fan profiles can also be set and adjusted through CAM.
GRID+ V3 main features:
- CAM-powered digital fan controller for precise and efficient cooling
- Supports 6 separate channels, automatically detecting 3-pin fans and 4-pin PWM fans; delivers up to 5 watts of power per channel
- 0dB fan feature for near silent operation.
- Slim profile and magnetic back for simple installation
- Adaptive Noise Reduction technology automatically optimizes cooling and fan noise
Smart fan control
If manual fan control is your preference, GRID+ V3 supports both voltage and PWM control, and you can choose a separate fan profile for each channel: Silent, Performance, Fixed, or Custom. Label each fan channel, build your own custom fan curves, and tune your system using the intuitive CAM dashboard.
Each channel automatically detects if you’ve connected a 3-pin fan or 4-pin PWM fan. GRID+ V3 includes two Y-splitter cables for installing additional fans.
For nearly silent operation, your custom profiles can use the 0dB feature on GRID+ V3 to disable fans completely when temperatures are within the safe limits of your build.
Easy and discreet installation
GRID+ V3 features a slim profile, measuring only 15mm in height, and includes a magnetic back, making it quick and easy to install; it even fits behind most motherboard trays.
Adaptive Noise Reduction
Our unique Adaptive Noise Reduction uses an on-board noise sensor to measure and learn the specifics of your system to find the ideal balance between fan speed and cooling. With up to a 40% reduction in fan noise level, you won’t need to waste time designing custom fan curves. Leveraging machine learning to improve its results, this will ensure your fan settings are always optimal, even if you change hardware.

NZXT introduces the H Series cases
A new approach for modern PC building with an integrated digital fan and RGB controller
Los Ángeles, CA – October 17th, 2017 – Today NZXT is announcing the all-new H Series PC cases showcasing its vision for modern PC building. The H700i, H400i, and H200i include the newly-developed, fully-integrated Smart Device controller providing the same capabilities as NZXT’s highly-acclaimed GRID+ and HUE+ products. Each case comes build-ready with pre-installed RGB lighting and pre-wired Aer F fans*, saving the cost and hassle of adding RGB and fan controllers.
The Smart Device also adds an audio sensor to measure fan noise, enabling a new feature called “Adaptive Noise Reduction.” This intelligent, cloud-based algorithm leverages the power of shared data and machine learning to develop fan curves that can reduce system noise by up to 40%. A patent-pending cable management system makes it easy to keep your system neat and tidy, without wasting time on your wiring. And finally, all H Series cases feature a tempered glass side panel so you can show off the stunning results of your build.
“We designed the H Series as a new approach to PC building. We want to make creating extraordinary PCs achievable and fun for everyone. PC builders should be able to benefit from the same features and design across different form factors. That’s why all three cases in the H Series share the core smart features, modern design, and beautiful craftsmanship that are our vision for modern PC building,” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder and CEO.
H Series main features
- Modern aesthetics and builder-friendly features are delivered in three sizes: the H700i, a mid-tower ATX case; the H400i, a mATX case; and the H200i, a compact ITX case
- The Smart Device, a built-in digital RGB and fan controller powered by CAM, simplifies installation and management of RGB lighting and fans, saving time and money
- Premium, all-steel construction with the sleek H Series design; available in four color combinations
- Tempered glass side panel showcases custom RGB lighting
- Wire management is made easy by an all-new cable management system
- Water-cooling installation simplified for both AIO and custom loop configurations
- Adaptive Noise Reduction optimizes cooling and noise balance for the best gaming comfort
Smart controls that matter
The unique Smart Device includes features from our HUE+ and GRID+ V3 digital controllers, allowing for effortless control of RGB lighting and fans using CAM. Customized lighting is streamlined with integrated and individually addressable RGB LED strips. Don’t waste time checking compatibility, installing, or manipulating physical buttons; our out-of-the box, elegantly controlled CAM software is all you need.Beautiful craftsmanship
The H Series is available in four color combinations to match your taste, and its elegant all-steel construction is shared across all sizes. The tempered glass panel and signature PSU shroud showcase beautiful builds.
Enjoyable builds for all
Cable management can often take more time than assembly. We designed a new cable routing kit with pre-installed channels and straps, on the back of the motherboard tray, for intuitive and easy wiring. The H Series simple, builder-friendly layout ensures you’ll enjoy building your PC as much as you enjoy gaming on it.
We simplified water-cooling installation with drop-in brackets and integrated reservoir mounting for custom-loop systems. Aer F fans* are included for optimal internal airflow. To preserve your system’s clean looks, front and PSU intakes are fully filtered.
Storage installation is a snap with quick-release 2.5” SSD trays on the PSU shroud. The H Series cases come with support for additional 2.5” behind the motherboard tray and mounting for traditional 3.5” drives. This storage layout optimizes airflow and interior space for a clean-looking build.
Adaptive Noise Reduction
Our unique Adaptive Noise Reduction uses an on-board noise sensor to measure and learn the specifics of your system to find the ideal balance between fan speed and cooling. With up to a 40% reduction in fan noise level, you won’t need to waste time designing custom fan curves. And the adaptive noise reduction algorithm uses machine learning to improve its results, ensuring your fan settings are always optimal, even when you change your system components.
