Description

Built a gaming PC to congratulate myself on getting into Georgia Tech! Went Mini-ITX to save space in my dorm and make it easier to transport.

Part Reviews

Storage

Super fast as a boot drive; don't know why you would bother going NVMe.

Video Card

So far so good. I'd like to push it with more ray tracing games one they come out, but for now it crushes all my games in 1080p. Also love the zero rgb, the backplate, and I don't even hear the fans.

Case

Love this case. Initially was going for the non-i version, but then realized how much money I could save on a fan controller / rgb controller if I got this. CAM...well, it's not without it's bugs, but it does the trick. This case was very simple and fun to build in.

how well does this play triple a games? I have a very similar system but I do not yet have a graphics card and I was wondering how well my system will play games and I am looking at the rtx 2060 as an option.

How is the H200 size wise, in other words, the portability factor

I haven't had to transport it anywhere, but it doesn't seem like it will be a problem

Quick question: are those custom cables?

How are the temps on the gpu? Im looking to get the same case and gpu and am worried about the heat build up as there is very little clearance for the 2060.

Also, how are the noise levels on the dual windforce fans?

Appreciate a response :D

Temps are great, stays in the 60's when gaming for long periods of time, 30's when idle. I would vouch for the noise, but there appears to be something wrong with one of my fans, as it makes a slight buzzing noise (but I know it isn't hitting anything).

Very clean makes me want to make a mini ITX build . Love how you routed the 24pin so you can see the sleeved cables .

Nice build, aligns well with what I was thinking. I'm still debating the 2060 GPU tho.

If you're looking for a budget card and don't care about ray-tracing, I'd recommend that 1660. That being said the 2060 is perfect for what I do.

Yep, I have my eye on the GTX 1660 for $275. A decent bang for the buck it would seem.

I love the backplate, and the fans rarely spin, and when they do they're basically silent. That being said I have yet to push it. I wouldn't vertically mount this card, as the cooler side isn't very attractive, but the side and the back (which are what I see) are very sexy.
