  1. Compact Mid-Tower Suggestions

    The only thing I would suggest would be to get an extra case fan, possibly two to get some extra airflow. The side vents are well positioned to allow all but the msot "optimal" airflow
  2. Only if your ram is low profile (no tall heatsinks) Examples are Corsair's Vengeance LPX
  3. Mini ITX Build

    NZXT H200 - Tempered glass and Steel Construction Fractal Design Nano S - hardware and watercooling support Cougar QBX - Cheap and compact
  4. Define r6 vs Meshify c for 360 rad

    They fit https://pcpartpicker.com/b/6N29TW https://pcpartpicker.com/b/kn9J7P https://pcpartpicker.com/b/3kbXsY
  5. Compact Mid-Tower Suggestions

    South America is the Worst P350x seems pretty solid
  6. My guess is they're most likely not use because of the price.
  7. NZXT H500..... The new S340 for $70?

    I havent even begun to look at that (been to busy this week) but did see it released around the same time NZXT released there. The side ventilation looks promising.
  8. NZXT also released the non i versions of the H series with the H500 launch. That means you can buy a H700 for $150, a WAY more competitive price IMO

  9. NZXT H500..... The new S340 for $70?

    I just saw this too. Man does this make me happy. On top of that, they hit that $150 mark I was hoping they could on the H700. This is a good day.
  10. NZXT H500..... The new S340 for $70?

    I've always recommended mid range and below builds in S340's (i5/R5 and GTX1060/RX580's) both from personal experience and users on the forums having issues with high end builds. However, Gamers Nexus's used a 1080 and a 6700K @4.4ghz. Not the hottest components in the world, but still definitely heat producing. And to see the GPU temps be fairly solid was cool to see For me, what's more exciting is the Tempered glass mounting method, and how companies are starting to get innovative with it.
  11. You're actually not the worst I've come across, truth be told. You just really like TG and need E-ATX.
  12. NZXT H500..... The new S340 for $70?

    The H500i with smarthub is $100... the H500, which was the main focus of the news article, is $70
  13. See, I wish Fractal, Phanteks and NZXT would give us a little more notice about cases like this, cause these revisions are kinda cool

      Haha, why should they give you notice? I'm just glad to see nice cases under $100. Especially clean ones like this.

      @dizmo not ME specifically, just like "Oh hey July 7th, get ready for a new case" or something. NZXT gave out a teaser for the H700i which was nice

  14. NZXT released two new cases, the H500 and the H500i. People who remember the H700i will know the (i) included the smart hub and RGB controller. This time around NZXT actually put out two sets of the cases that allow you to buy the case without the smart hub, a very welcome edition in my mind (wish the H700 was a thing, but hey[UPDATE! The H700 is a thing! Along with the entire H series, you can now purchase them with or without the smart hub] ) These cases seem to be similar to the Phanteks P300 in design, however seem overall slightly more refined design wise. https://www.nzxt.com/products/h500-matte-black Oh great. Another Closed off Front panel with sh*tty Airflow, right? Well.... Gamers nexus actually gave it a surprisingly good review, both in features like TG mounting method and thermals (relatively speaking) This case comes out of the box with negative pressure, but in Gamers nexus's testing this actually worked well for the GPU and hurt the CPU (Those of you with i5 8400's and 1070+ GPU's, this case might be a good option) Thoughts: Great, now I gotta explain to people H500p and H500i are two completely different cases! On a serious note. The H500 keeps a lot of what I like the H700i (cable management features) while staying true to the original's S340's good build quality an at extremely competitive price. Personally I think its fairly solid and doesnt have any major crippling flaws like the Corsair's 275r and it's TG mounting design for example.

  15. Dual 360 Rads in this case is the exact configuration I'm planning on for my next build! (In like a year from now) https://imgur.com/a/VEamf Basically, yes the Front panel has enough ventilation on the sides for proper airflow. Most people poo-poo anything thats not open mesh as "bad airflow" but there are a lot of examples of good side ventilation cases, and this is one of them!
