One of the problems with small boxes is their distribution, because often times we can’t fit the components in the best way or there isn’t enough space. This is why NOX offers us this Hummer Vault, a micro-ATX tower that stands out for its great flexibility when configuring its interior components.

We are faced with a Micro-ATX type case with dimensions 185mm wide, 303mm high and 391mm deep. Its weight is 5.2 kilograms and is designed to accommodate plates not only of the type Micro-ATX but also Micro-ITX. It’s constructed from 0.8mm thick SPCC steel and has full metal side and front panels, so we’re up against a tower that doesn’t use plastic in any of its parts.
The power supply that we can install is not only the classic ATX, but we have the possibility to install a SFX with dimensions of 110 x 120 x 650 mmIn any case, we can only install one type of power supply, but what really sets this box apart is the possibility of placing certain components vertically, since it has 2 expansion slots that allow us to place the graphics card vertically, in the horizontal expansion slots, which in this case are 4.
In case we want to install the vertical graphics card we have a space of 245 mm for this and if we want to install it horizontally space is larger, because it allows us to install one with length up to 335 mm. It should be remembered that if we install the GPU vertically, the maximum height of the CPU heat sink can not be more than 88 mm
Ventilation and cooling system
The specifications of the NOX Hummer Vault vary if we want to install an air cooling system, as the distribution of the fans varies depending on whether we have installed an ATX or SFX type power supply. Depending on the type of font we install we can install up to 7 fans.
For fans before, we can install 2 of 120 mm if we have opted for an SFX source, but if we did it with an ATX source then we can only install 120mm fan, since the slot for the ATX power supply occupies the space of the second fan. As with the rest of the fans, there is no variation as to whether we installed one type of source or another. In the back of the tower, we can install a 80mm fan, 2120mm on top
On the other hand, if you want to use liquid cooling system, we are also limited by the power supply, in this case the SFX power supply is installed on the side and limits the length of the radiator to 120 mm, but if we use an ATX source, we can install a 240 mm radiator. The other place where we can install a radiator is at the bottom or at the base of the tower where the radiator can be 120 or 240 mm.
Front panel, internal bays and prices
The NOX Hummer Vault has 6 expansion bays: 3 of them 3.5 inch for conventional hard drives and drives in case you still need themthe other 3 are 2.5 inches and ideal for SSDs and hard drives of this size. So, storage options when mounting a PC with the Nox Hummer Vault are not at all rare.
