First build I've ever put together. Pictures show transition from stock Wraith Prism air cooler to NZXT X62 AIO. I can add more/better pictures later if anyone is interested.
NZXT H200i - Wanted a case that was small, but not TOO small. Even though this was my first build, I did not have any real problems putting this together. Complete build time was around 2.5 hours. Initially had lighting issues with the CAM software, but I downloaded an earlier version and everything works just fine
Ryzen 2700x- Didn't want to build myself a "gaming" PC, so I opted for the Ryzen 2700x. Peaking at around 4.3GHz autoclocked. I have no issues with this speed. Will be playing WOW and editing photos using lightroom/photoshop.
MSI GTX 1080Ti Gaming X - Silent. Only reason I decided to go with a R/W theme.
NZXT Kraken X62 - The included AMD Wraith Prism cooler kept temperatures around 70C at full load, but was extremely loud doing it. Switching to AIO, my idle is now around 25C, full load reaching no higher than 60C. Note: Most people say that the X62 cannot fit in the H200i, especially when you factor in a GPU longer than 269mm
I was somehow able to fit aforementioned AIO in the case along with the 290mm 1080Ti, but just barely. I ended up scratching the radiator a little and had to apply touch-up paint. Supposedly the max clearance for the H200i is supposed to be 325mm. 290 GPU + 30 rad + 25 fans > 325... so not sure how it worked out. I pretty much eyeballed the clearance between the GPU/front fans and went for it
Asus Strix X470-i Mobo- No bios update needed. Plug and play. Ugly Wi-fi connector
Trident RGB 3200 16GB- Compatible and RGB
NZXT Internal Hub - For the X62 RGB
Cablemod Extensions - Wish I had gotten the full cables instead of extensions. Barely any room in the case to work with
EVGA G3 550W Gold- 550W seems like it's enough. Silent on eco mode
Front fans - Corsair 2x140mm AF140- Case didn't come with front fans. Purchased these when still running the stock air cooler
