Description

Hi everyone,

This is a pretty straight forward, no RGB build in the H200 NZXT case. This PC will be used mostly for digital content creation (3D models and environments, image editing, etc.) as well as some casual gaming and home office work.

I gave myself a budget of 2k and I knew that I needed 32gb ram and a fairly beefy cpu for all the programs I run simultaneously.

Building in the H200 was easier than expected. I saved myself a lot of headaches by planning the build and pre-attaching any cables to the motherboard that would be blocked by the cpu heatsink.

.

Misc notes:

Motherboard is awesome. Easy to use BIOS. Front mount M.2 with a large heatsink. Built in wifi. No RGB.

Corsair Vengeance ram fits snug right under the fan of the Dark Rock.

Fair amount of extra space for the the gpu to breathe.

H200 case was amazing to work with. My only critique is that I would of liked better access to the mother board via the top or back of the case. Once the board is in, it's a bit hard to reach.

The Noctua slim 120mm doesn't seem to be pushing as much air as I expected. Not a big deal though as the rest of the case is plenty ventilated.

Bonus picture of the H200 next to my old PC in a Corsair Vengeance Series Military Green C70 Mid Tower (sorry, no banana).

Temperature numbers are from early stress testing and benchmarking. I'll update if needed.

A few hiccups.

The Dark Rock 4 was pressing up against the top case fan, so I had to replace it with a slim 120mmx15mm Noctua. (before and after pictures)

Also, the Dark Rock 4 mounting hardware barely fit this motherboard. Maybe 1mm of space between the ram sticks and the left heatsink (pictured). It installed just fine, but I got a bit nervous there for a minute.

I didn't even think about needing a fan hub, but the motherboard only had one fan header. I installed a SilverStone fan hub onto the side of the power supply.

Thanks for checking out my build!

Is the case attached to the bottom of your desk?

Yup. The desk is a motorized standing desk, so i have the pc mounted to the frame underneath the desktop.

interesting, is it a locked in solution or are you able to take it off relatively easily say if you want to pull the pc out and work on it.

It's fairly easy to take on and off. It's attached via a clamping lever that hugs the case. You just pull the lever to release the case.

What did you do specifically to accomplish that? I'm looking into purchasing a standing desk and doing a build with the H200, so this could be a nice little solution for me.

Search for pc desk mount. There's all sorts of options. I happened to buy one straight from the desk maker.

This is more like a "How to suffocate your graphics card" tutorial but other than that this is a REALLY good build.

I also built in this case with the be quiet dark rock 4. Can confirm it was a very snug fit. Looks Great!

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

I've only done some causal gaming on high settings - gpu temps never broke 60 Celsius. Only stress testing w/ 3dmark was I maxing out in the high 70's. To me that's a very comfortable range to be in. Proper mounting of the psu, plus a good pull/push set up of your case fans will keep this cards temps under control. I'd certainly recommend this case + card setup.

As far as noise is concerned, yes I barely hear the computer when it's on. I don't go around listening to dozens of different computers, but this build is the quietest PC I've ever owned. When the pc is in an idle/sleep state it makes no sound at all.
