Description

I was amazed by the idea of building a small factor build for gaming and working from home. After two weeks of research, I finally decided to go with the H200i by NZXT even when I ended up with not using the HUE light of the case.

I decided to go first time in my life with an AMD CPU, because it was bundled with "the Division 2" and even without had the highest value for the bucks compared to Intel's 8700K and 9600K. The cooler the CPU comes with is decent but I went with the Kraken X52 for its look. To fit the AIO correctly I used low profile Corsair RAM in white. Some people would prefer to have some RGB here, but I don't like RGB RAM that much.

The GPU was a tough decision, since I wasn't really sure about the space of the case + the AIO + GPU, because there are so many resources that tell different lengths. It ended up fitting perfectly! There is 6-7mm space left between the radiator and the GPU. The white of the GPU blends perfectly with the white of the case and the CableMod kit, while staying pretty cool (max. 72°C).

The cable management is not as easy as it sounds with this case, since there is not much space to store cables and stuff. I would highly recommend to go with a small size PSU like the SF600 from Corsair, to save some space in the bottom part.

Don't wanna speak for the submitter, but I'm pretty sure those are the NZXT AERs. Imo the best RGB fan on the market right now.

Did you have any issues fitting that graphics card, every place I've seen said that you could only fit 270mm graphics cards.

It was easier than expected thanks to the given space in the case. I placed in the motherboard first, then the radiator + fans and at the very end the GPU. If you have an air-cooled CPU (with a big head) you will probably need to install the GPU before the CPU.

Hey im very impressed with that build and I was thinking of buying the exact same Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB GAMING OC.

Ive also like another user, read multiple times that it wont fit in the ITX case but it surely does with the X52, proven by you. Was it hard to fit it, or did you have to do anything special?

Kind Regards.

It was quite easy to be honest. You just need to install the GPU at the very end. But be careful, if you are using a big air cooler for your CPU you might have not enough space to maneuver in the GPU.

This is one of the nicest builds I've ever seen on here! Love the outrun colors! You convinced me on that Kraken X52!

Amazing! I am building a similar configuration, I have a doubt... How did you connect the fans to the smart device and the hue device? How is the correct way? Thanks!

What information are you interested in? Anything specific?

I'm assuming a shot next to the monitor to put the build in perspective of size

Is your gpu running at PCIE x8? Because you have your nvme m2 ssd installed that occupies half of pcie lanes.

  • 10 months ago

GPU-Z is telling me it's running on PCIe x16 3.0 @ x16 3.0 As far as I know its only running on x8 if you installed a second m2 ssd.

Does the gigabyte run any software for lightning?

Yes, you can control it via Gigabytes Software, called "RGB AURA".

I'm looking to build a similar set up! you've done a great job on this!

Thank you for putting a 280mm card in there!! Like you, I'm having trouble finding valid documentation on max gpu length with the X52 AIO set up. I wasn't sure if the Gigabyte - GeForce RTX 2070 8 GB WINDFORCE I had picked would fit.. 6mm clearance is good in my books.

I have that same CPU,GPU,PSU and MBoard. Can you post a screenshot of you bios settings since i am having some random FPS drop every like 2 hours and i have tried every setting but i am not a pro or anything like that.

What would happen if i went with a 300mm gpu can you please check for me, can you check with a ruler if it will hit the aio???

Thanks -Genji
