Hey guys. Planning my new build, first time in almost a decade. Going ITX with a Ryzen 2600 w/GTX 1060 6GB and wonder if anyone out there has experience/advice/gotchas on choosing between the h200i and evolv itx?

Thanks!

The evolv itx is a 34 liters case while the H200 is a 26 liters case. The H200 is a smaller case. IMO a real itx case should be under 20 liters, so for sure if i had to pick between this two i would go with the H200i.

Now.... the evolv is probably the better looking (IMO) of the two and has a greater compatibility with liquid coolers as the H200 will limit you to a 240mm rad.

Go with the one you like the best as you'll be looking it daily. :)

You're still limited to a 240mm Rad on the Evolv. It's a case I've used in my main build, and I like it better than the H200i. Pry could get slightly better thermals on an H200i, but the Evolv is much cheaper.

I'd say go for the Evolv.

Not true........ On top panel it can accommodate a 280mm rad

Oh, I thought the top could only accommodate a 240. Guess I'm wrong.

Thanks :) I’ve read some reviews that say the Evolv doesn’t cool as well in its stock configuration - most likely due to the lack of exhaust fan.

My config has two fans intaking onto my Radiator, which is mounted in the front. I have 2 fans up top exhausting, and a rear exhaust.

Cool, thats good to know! Last question I hope - how do you find the noise levels?

mojospc submitter 2 points 5 months ago

Thanks for the feedback :) I’ll most likely stick with AIO cooling. I read some users are having issues with CAM software on the h200I, that would be disappointing!
