NOX HUMMER Frost, review: a simple and cheap case for any PC

For the rest, we must also highlight its tempered glass side that allows you to see all the hardware installed inside, and that has the lower section separated from the upper one to “hide” the cables and the parts that we do not want to be seen from the hardware, although it is true that it has a window that does allow the power supply to be seen.

Unboxing and external analysis

The NOX HUMMER Frost is packed in the typical manufacturer’s box, made of hard cardboard and neutral color in which a drawing of the box has been printed on its front and back (they are the same), leaving the technical specifications for the sides (they come in Spanish and Portuguese, in this case), thus being able to see at a quick glance all the features it offers.

Here you can see the NOX HUMMER Frost out of its packaging and in a three-quarter view, which undoubtedly highlights that tempered glass side with a black frame that will allow us to see all the hardware that we install inside.


This side (which is covered by a plastic to prevent scratches or fingerprints from being left when handling it, but which is logically recommended to remove once we are going to proceed to use the device) is, as we said, tempered glass. and it is not tinted at all but is completely transparent. The way to remove this side is the old-fashioned way: with four screws, one in each corner.


On the opposite side we find the traditional metal plate, in this case black, which to remove it we will have to remove two screws and pull it backwards.


On the front we see a triangular grille that begins in the lower area, with a clear incision under which the ARGB LED strip that we have mentioned several times before is installed. The HUMMER logo adorns the upper left corner of the front in white.


We go to the back, where we see the hole to install the power supply in the lower area. Above this hole we have seven perforated expansion slots, but be careful because they are not reusable but rather they are the ones that have to be broken to be able to use them. Above, the hole for the I/O shield of the motherboard and, to the right of this, a grille behind which we can install a 120 mm diameter fan.


We go to the upper area, where we find a large magnetic dust filter on top of a grille in which we can install two 120 mm fans each. Also here we have the area of ​​buttons and connectors of the box, which in this case includes power and reset buttons, two USB 2.0 ports, a solitary USB 3.0 and two audio minijacks.

In the lower area we have four rubberized feet, as well as an anti-dust filter that is not magnetic but is embedded in the power supply area. We can also see some perforations that will serve to be able to move the rack for 3.5-inch units that we will see later inside.


Seeing how the box is on the outside from all its angles, the time has come to see what it offers us inside.

Internal analisis

We remove both side panels and we can see the “skeleton” of this HUMMER Frost from NOX. At first glance we can see that it has numerous perforations for cable routing, as well as a generous hole that will allow us to manipulate the motherboard socket without having to disassemble it.


We start by looking at the front, where we can see three mounting points for 120mm fans, as well as a generous hole to accommodate liquid cooling radiators. Also in this area we can see the internal face of the ARGB LED strip and its wiring.


Logically, the front can be removed simply by pulling it out, allowing us to more comfortably install the front cooling that we want to put on the box.


We go to the opposite side, where we have the seven perforated expansion slots that, as we mentioned before, are not reusable. Also here we have the grill for the rear fan and the hole where to install the I/O shield of the motherboard.


A grille and two mounting points for 120 mm fans predominate on the roof of the box. We can also see three perforations that will allow us to comfortably channel the cables that we need in this upper area.


In the lower area we have a separation of the motherboard area and that of the power supply and hard drives, with numerous holes to channel cables, including a more advanced one designed for the PCIe cable of the graphics card.


Looking at the box inside and out, the time has come to install our test bench in it to see how it works.

Assembly: how is it working with the NOX HUMMER Frost?

We begin the assembly of our test bench with the power supply, in this case a CORSAIR RM1000i of considerable dimensions. The power supply fits easily into the case, but we had to remove the hard drive rack from the bottom as otherwise it would be impossible to connect the modular connectors.


The rest of the assembly is a piece of cake, since in this box the motherboard can be installed without problems with the heatsink and the RAM already installed in advance.


As you can see, a high-performance system can be installed without any problem, and in this case it includes an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z690 HERO motherboard, with a Core i9-12900K, DDR5 RAM and a Noctua NH-U12A heatsink. Chromax, as well as a GIGABYTE RTX 3070 Ti and the CORSAIR 1000 Watt PSU.

The connections are not difficult either, this box has plenty of space for cable routing, especially since we have used the box as it came from the factory, that is, without fans.


Let’s now see that ARGB front, protagonist in the NOX HUMMER Frost. In the following gallery you can see how it looks in high light conditions and in normal light conditions.

The ARGB LED strip that NOX has installed on the front of the box stands out quite a bit, and illuminates practically the entire valley that the manufacturer has designed above the front grille, giving it an elegant touch that is accentuated by the RGB lighting of the internal components that we can see through the tempered glass side window.


Conclusion and verdict

The NOX HUMMER Frost is a box that, as you may have seen throughout this analysis, is extremely simple. It has plenty of room to handle it easily even if you have no experience building computers, and it has room to install high-end components without the slightest inconvenience.

We are dealing with a box whose recommended retail price is 44.90 Euros, very affordable to start with but as we have said before, we must bear in mind that it comes without fans and that we will have to purchase them separately in order to have a flow of optimal air inside.


For the rest, this is a fairly rational box for users looking to have quality components but without spending too much money, and therefore it gets our Silver award, as well as our recommendation for its design.
