Description

Purely intended for gaming/streaming, I built this computer shortly after purchasing my msi 1070 ti.

The whole thing was a culmination of my desire to build an itx computer and that I wanted to upgrade from the i5-4690k that I previously had... and that I'm greedy and also like nice things.

So after realizing I could gut my previous computer of a few essential parts, mainly being the SSDs and the GPU, I set off to purchase all of the computer related things that my little heart desired.

The h200i is absolutely beautiful. I loved working inside this case. HOWEVER, I kind of wish I had gone with an SFX fully modular PSU as I would have liked the possible better airflow for the GPU. Right now I'm running at 75c which isn't bad but I would have liked to see it just a teeeeeny bit cooler.

I have not run into issues that actually do me any stress at all, however, I can leave with a note for anyone interested:

IF YOU PLAN FOR A PUSH/PULL CONFIGURATION on the cpu cooler... You will need a shorter GPU. The cause allows for a full GPU, but it takes the space that the rear fans would have used.

ok very noice build. A few questions. Wouldn't using the kraken AIO not allow you to use the built in fan hub in the case since most mini its mobs only have one pwm connector (I don't remember its name of the top of my head but I do remember that you couldn't have the cool mirror lights on the AIO if you wanted to use the fan hub).

Second any recommendations/ build tips if I wanted to make a build in this case?

lastly, I think adding a lil pop figure that follow your black and red color scheme would be lit.

Q1: That's been fixed with a USB Hub. NZXT makes a nice looking internal one but I believe there are others out there. https://www.nzxt.com/products/internal-usb-hub

Q2: If I were to do it again, I'd probably try to get a shorter GPU so I could fit in a second set of fans so I could do push/pull configurations on the radiator. Unfortunately, the MSI GPU that I have right now (which is my favorite looking GPU) only comes in one length I think. But if I wasn't trying to go for the red/black theme, that's what I'd do.

Another thing, which I believe I've already mentioned both of these things in my little description, is i'd get and SFX PSU. Though the case is roomy for an ITX build... it's still an ITX build meaning that space is tight. The PSU shroud does have holes in it to help the airflow to the GPU, however, if you get a regular ATX PSU, many of those holes get closed off.

If you DO happen to go with a short GPU for the push/pull on the radiator I would again suggest a SFX PSU.

Last thing is that I saw somewhere in a youtube video that you CAN fit the larger 280mm kraken in this case, though NZXT specs do not say so. You just have to put the fans on the front of the radiator.

I was gonna put a little Kylo Ren in there ___^

Good day, I’m actually building something very similar to yours except that my cooler is the Corsair h100i v2 and my gpu is a msi 1080 gaming x and I would like to ask, wouldn’t the liquid cooler and the gpu be a really tight fit? Hope you could help me out with this:)

Sorry for my super late reply, but yes, it is a pretty tight fit. there isn't much room between the Radiator and the GPU, however, that doesn't seem to be changing the temps that much.

Hello! How are you doing. Can I ask for the temps ? Have you tried OC and how much is the Temp? I wanted to go with Mini ITX 8700k, but I am worried with the temperature.

I haven't really tried overclocking yet, but so far my temps for my GPU have stayed around 78c or lower, and my cpu I think sometimes jumps a little above 50c but that's it.

I thought that seasonic power cables are black ??

they are, but i got some pretty neat thermaltake extensions.

I know, I know, I'm late. But what PSU cables are you using? Since I'm also going with a black and red build I'd like to know since they do look good.

I just ordered the same GPU, and the same case is in my cart. It looks like I have to go with different case cuz that GPU temp is too high especially with 50c in Summer here. Shame, that case looks good.
