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.
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.

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!
