Description

Updated my previous build with a new monitor and cpu cooler. TLDR from my last post, mini ITX build for college.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Awesome cooler. I like that it covers/cools the VRMs so that you can still see the RAM. Mainly purchased it for a noise improvement over the Wraith Stealth stock cooler. The only noise I can hear at idle is the hard drive.

Motherboard

Died randomly after 3 months. Seems that clearing the CMOS fixed it, but still not cool. I'll probably upgrade to a X570 or B550 board when they release.

Monitor

Awesome monitor, especially for the price. 1440p is a little hard on my 2060, but I still get 100+ frames on everything.

I have a question about the NZXT H200 and the Corsair SF600 80+ Gold. PCPartPicker says that these aren't compatible. However, it says that the SF600 80+ Platinum is compatible. Do you know why one is and one isn't?

Also, do the stock cables of the SF600 reach in this build?

I honestly have no idea, I just ignored it because I knew they would work. The stock cables are too short, but I planned on using cable extensions anyways so in the end it saved me cable clutter. Sorry for the late response

Very nice build! Though I have questions. I'm looking forward to buying the same CPU cooler for the same CPU. How good is the cooler? What are the temps? (if you know) Does it support any other 120mm fans than the Scythe fans?

Sorry for the late reply! The cooler is great, I've kind of gotten lazy with monitoring temps after getting it, but I know it's never hotter than 70. And yes, the cooler comes with longer screws so that you can use a 25mm fan instead

Perfect, thank you!
