Fire Hazard Leads NZXT to Officially Recall the H1 Case in the US and Canada


Recommended Posts


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced Friday that NZXT has officially recalled its H1 case because of a design flaw that posed a fire hazard. According to the announcement, NZXT received 11 reports of "circuit boards overheating or catching fire worldwide, six of which occurred in the U.S."


NZXT released the affected case in February 2020. The CPSC said approximately 32,000 units were sold in the U.S., and 1,024 were sold in Canada since that debut. Consumers were advised to "immediately stop using the recalled computer cases and contact NZXT for a free repair kit" so they can safely operate their systems.

To be honest, it is about time. Scary thing is that if the screws were not put to NZXT such as what Steve did at Gamers Nexus, this may have been glossed over.
