New build around the H200

Hello,

 

I'm currently on my almost 5-year-old build (standard at the time: i5 4690k / GTX 970 combo). It has served me well and I now think it's the right time to upgrade: big enough performance gap to justify the change.

 

Now, the thing is I would like to go from an ATX build (actually E-ATX as my Cooler Master StormTrooper allows it) to an ITX build. Not SFFPC per se, since the case I'm leaning towards is the NZXT H200. Here is the list of the components:

I like the idea of a small PC with a 280mm radiator and 4 fans. OnPCPartPicker it says the H200 cannot accomodate a 280mm but it does.

I'm leaning towards the Zotac 2070 super mini (209mm) since I have 245mm of GPU clearance with 2 fans width+radiator (push/pull). If I only do push I have 25mm more and could fit an EVGA 2070 Super. I would have liked to go with the 5700 XT but unfortunately they're a tad too big.

 

What are your recommendations for this build ? (EU area)

 

It would kinda look like this but with a shorter GPU:

The MSI ITX board is much cheaper for the same performance, tho its red accents may break the colour scheme

My mistake for the single channel, I misclicked on PCPartPicker. Of course it will be dual channel, but I think I will have to rotate the AIO in order to fit the closer ram.

Don't take the price into account, it's messed up for Belgium. I can buy anything in Europe without any fees anyway (Amazon Espana, Italia, Deutsch, French, England + other websites). The Asus is around 140€ and indeed it's mainly black :).

Cut the pull and get a bigger gpu. The zotac mini is just a hot turd of a 2070. It’s not small enough to be itx and it’s not large enough to actually stay cool. 

I didn't saw any review of the 2070 super mini... too new yet? But the reviews of the 2070 mini are kinda ok, hitting 70° maximum under load. I could go with a 2060 super mini as well if that's better? I don't play triple A games: Age of Empires II, Rocket League, Cities Skylines, etc.

I'm eventually going with an air cooler instead of AIO liquid cooled, allowing more space for the GPU.

I have also updated the case to the H210.

And replaced the GPU with a full size 2060 Super.

 

Is there enough headers on the mobo to get all the fans? (at least 4: two in front, two for the NH D15). Or should I get some Corsair Commander Pro?

How do I know if the NH D15 is compatible with the ram? Should I get lower profile ones?

No issue with air intake if I put an ATX PSU instead of SFX in this case? Gpu is 2 slot so it should allows some air from underneath.

 

The build will look like this, but in black:
