This is the best-looking H710i case, period.

NZXT has been running its CRFT series for a while, launching limited-edition versions of PC cases themed to video games. The latest entry, CRFT 09, is based on the hit game Cyberpunk 2077. It's based on the excellent NZXT H710i a case I gave full marks in 2019 for its striking design, spacious internals, and good thermal performance.

If you're after a mid-tower PC case with plenty of space to cram it full of large components and possibly even a custom water-cooling loop, the H710i is worth considering. As a fan of CD Projekt RED's work (namely The Witcher 3), we're taking a look at the H710i Cyberpunk today to see whether it's worth forking out a premium for.

I'll say this upfront: This is one of the best PC cases from NZXT in terms of design.

The NZXT CRFT series offers limited-edition custom products and as such are more expensive than their normal counterparts. The H710i costs $220, but you'll need to shell out a full $300 for the Cyberpunk theme and included accessories. It's a high price to pay, but well worth it if you're a Cyberpunk fan and your budget can stretch it.

If you're unfamiliar with NZXT's H series of cases, they sport a minimalist design with a premium finish that certainly looks the part. The H710i is the largest of the series with support for E-ATX and up to two 360mm radiators. You can easily cram seven 140mm fans and the fattest GPU in the industry inside this case.

The NZXT H710i Cyberpunk is a gorgeous mid-tower case for fans of the games.

Each case is packaged with care and plenty of protection. Our review sample suffered no damage during transit. With the Cyberpunk edition of the H710i, NZXT includes a limited-edition themed magnetic puck for hanging your favorite headphones and computer chip charm that can be attached to the side panel with the included suction pad.

On the front of the H710i Cyberpunk is the Arasaka branding with a portion of graffiti. The metallic theme continues around the right side with the back completely bare of any artwork. The top panel has some additional graffiti, but it's the tempered glass side window where you'll find the bulk of it. The entire case looks amazing.

Small details have been made in other areas too, including red thumb screws and PCI slot shields on the rear of the case. Popping off the glass side window opens up the vast innards of the H710i. Inside, you'll see a small plaque to showcase the fact this is indeed a limited-edition case. Then there's a red-painted metal bar that reaches the top of the case from the PSU shroud.

There's an RGB and fan controller that's installed just behind this bar and is hooked up to two RGB LED strips preinstalled by NZXT at the factory. There's space for an additional RGB channel, but all three fan ports are occupied by three fan splitters ready for all your favorite case blowers.

Speaking of fans, upfront is one of two 360mm radiator mounts that can take up to three 140mm fans. The second is located up top, and NZXT added convenient access by removing the top panel and extracting the bracket. The only downside to this process is the use of push-post plastic caps that make it a pain to remove the panel.

For motherboards, you can install up to an E-ATX board, and even the largest GPU and CPU cooler on the market should fit just fine. If you'd prefer, NZXT allows for the GPU to be installed vertically with a PCI riser cable (not included). The PSU shrouds effectively hide the PSU and all unwanted cabling. Two SSD brackets are preinstalled but can be removed if you don't plan on using them.

An additional two brackets are located behind the motherboard tray for a total of four 2.5-inch drive slots and a 3.5-inch drive tray can be found below the PSU shroud. This can also be removed for a cleaner finish (and more room for hiding the cable mess). You shouldn't have any issues with cable routing as NZXT has some of the best in the business.
