NZXT H1 Mini-ITX Computer Case Has Safety Issues – Fix Coming

Sales of the NZXT H1 Mini-ITX computer case has been halted globally over what appears to be fire concerns. It looks like it has been linked to 1 wrong screw being used and a repair kit has been developed to replace said screw. This alert was issued after one customer had sparks and flames shoot out of his case after building his PC. NZXT believes that screwgate is only affecting a small percentage of the H1 cases, but are being overly cautious to ensure the safety of their customers.

NZXT H1 Mini-ITX Case

The H1 is NZXT’s first small form factor mini-ITX enclosure and it was released in February 2020 with an MSRP of $349.99. It comes with a 650W SFX-L 80Plus Gold fully modular power supply, a 140mm all-in-one liquid cooler, and a PCIe 16x Gen3 riser card.

Here is the statement about the H1 PC case released by NZXT:

Junior Geek of the Month: Inventor Maxwell Mamishev adds COVID safety device to resume

Remote learning can be a stressful experience, but 15-year-old Maxwell Mamishev has come to love it, if only because it has given him more time to focus on the things he likes to do and build.

DoubleVerify, a specialist in brand safety, ad fraud and ad quality, raises $350M

Ad-based platforms can face a lot of heat from advertisers when they can’t control how and where their ads run: just look back to the ad boycott against Facebook earlier this year (or earlier boycotts against YouTube and others) as examples of when it all goes wrong. One of the ways this is getting addressed is with tech; and today, DoubleVerify, one of the companies that has been building tools to improve how those two interplay together, is announcing that it has closed a monster round of $350 million to continue with that work.

DoubleVerify provides tools to advertisers and brands, marketplaces and publishers — longtime customers include the likes of Facebook, which provides it as a tool for advertising clients to use in their analytics dashboard.
