Nzxt h200i after mostly full tower cases.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i had a couple of cases before this, cm stacker 831, corsair graphite 200r,corsair 760t but I wanted something smaller so bought a itx board and a cheap coolermaster itx case.... that was kind of a regret because that case sucks.... so i bought a red nzxt h200i. What a awesome little case is that. I use the pc for streaming music to a cambridge audio dac and that goes to my tube amp. I also game a little bit mainly dying light and f1 2019. Its a pretty capable little machine and very silent.

I was never a fan of the rgb and i didnt even knew this case had rgb strips. But i kinda like it now.

specs.

 

intel core i7 6700k 4,5 ghz with the cheapest corsair liquid cooler.

asus z170 pro gaming

8 gb of geil forza 2666 ram ddr4

asus r9 290x (should i upgrade the gpu? I have a 4k tv but game at 1080p)

samsung 500gb ssd.


 

and should i stay with the i7? Or maybe go rysen?

Id upgrade the gpu, that will see you the most performance upgrade. Cpu and everything else in the system is still relatively competent.

3600+b450 :D but maybe you don't need to upgrade.

 

I'm wondering if a card like that can have enough air to be cooled ? (legit question :P)

Just came from a full tower to a H200 as well! Absolutely loving it ^^ Running a 3600 on b450 and a 980ti and it runs everything i throw at it smoothly ? 

Out of curiosity what are your GPU temps? i use to run a 290x and it ran hot in my atx case let alone Mini ITX xD my 980ti ACX currently hover around 70c with fairly low ambient temps

ITX cases are great, and for 80% of users an ITX motherboard is more practical anyways!

strangley enough the temps are fine no different than it was inmy 760t case. This little case has some seriously good airflow. Im even considering making a custom water loop with a 120 and 220 rad but first i want to upgrade the gpu im thorn between the vega 56 ,1070 and 2060..... but for now the 290x is fine.... i do have to fix on fan because the bearing is totally shot.... it rattles like crazy. Just ordered on from ebay.

@niels1996 Yeah i'm torn between 2060 super or RX5700 XT at the moment as there are only a handful or partner card out at the moment!
Having the same issue with fans on my 980, not so much a rattle but a constant grindy noise in the background. Hard to find replacement fans for these ACX coolers tho ?
