The cooler master h500

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi.  I am building a pc and I am now looking for what case I want to buy.  I will be using the pc for gaming and streaming to twitch while also capturing video with the capture card for youtube videos and I will use it for video editing and web design work.  My gaming and streaming sessions are likely to be 12+ hours long every day.  I plan to have an i9 9900k with an evga 2080 ti black edition gpu with 32gb of ram.  I do not care about rgb.  I plan to be playing on a 27" 1440p 165hz monitor.  The gpu is a 2 fan gpu.  I plan to cool the cpu with the noctua nh-d15.  I want air flow and the cooling to be a priority in the case.  I have posted here on the forum and elsewhere and now have it narrowed down to the cooler master h500.

 

Does anyone else have the cooler master h500?  What do you think of it?  I was looking at a nzxt h500 but I watched a gamers nexus review and the cooler master had much better temperatures than the nzxt.  Do you think this would be a good case for my use?  I am also planning on using a seasonic 850w gold rated power supply.  Does that sound like it will be a good one for my use?  Thanks!

yes, just fill the mesh front version with fans.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (+100/+500, 1650MHz~1750MHz 0.78V~0.85V) RAM: +4GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

Thank you.  I think the h500 comes with 2 large fans in the front and I do plan to use the mesh front instead of the plastic one.  On that 850w do power supplies only use the amount of power your pc needs or does it run at 850w the whole time?  I imagine I could probably do 650w and be fine but the 850w is around the same price as the lower watt psus so I figured why not do the 850w.  Is there any downside to having more watts in the psu than you may need?

it only outputs the power your hardware pulls. There's still AC to DC conversion loss, but it's 850w rating is the max output, not input or constant input.

 

In other words, bigger wattage PSU dont increase power draw significantly as their power ratings do.

apart from money, no.

Thank you for the information.  I will keep that in mind then.
