NZXT Compatibility Checker

Posted March 11, 2014 by philip

One of the most challenging aspects of building a new computer is understanding compatibility restrictions. Will a given motherboard fit in a case? Is the video card too long? Does the power supply have sufficient wattage? PCPartPicker provides these compatibility checks to ensure your components will work together. Over the past few months we have incorporated even more checks to help guide builders during the planning process.

I'm very pleased to announce cooperation with NZXT to integrate the PCPartPicker compatibility checker into NZXT.com. On NZXT product pages, such as the NZXT H440, you can now quickly evaluate compatibility versus any other part in the PCPartPicker database!

Nice, Been needing this for a while! Thanks guys at PCPartPicker!

Nice! Hopefully this will draw some more traffic to the site - more is always welcome here :)

Really neat. Wish more companies cared about builders instead of just going EVERYBODY BUY OUR PRODUCTS. From my experience, NZXT is good at putting themselves in the shoes of end users and thinking of what features are helpful. Kudos to them.

Nice, NZXT has some great parts too. I like to see this sort of thing happen. I would like to get the NZXT G10 installed on my GPU, because I hate how loud it gets. There is no place on PCPartPicker where the G10 fits.

The G10 exists in the system, but we're still working out how to present it from a user-interface perspective. With a G10, you could conceivably have more than one closed loop cooler in the system, so then it requires saying what cooler goes with the G10, and what cooler goes with the CPU. Each can have its own compatibility restrictions.

I have been so busy I missed you'r response. I am glad to see this is in the works. Oh and thank you for the response.

Hey Phillip why is there no taxs and delivery shown on creating a part list In Australia

 
 
philip [Staff,Submitter] [9 Builds] 1 point 5 months ago

Tax rates are set in your user preferences, since it can vary from user to user (based on address or other factors). For shipping costs, we show what we can, but not every retailer provides that data.

When are you guys going to add the Graphics Card Length to the filter BTW?

 
 
manirelli [Staff] [1 Build] 3 points 7 months ago
 
 
SilkyZ 1 point 7 months ago

any way we can use it as a search peramiter? or just filter out cards that are too long? for a case?

 
 
manirelli [Staff] [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

It auto filters. For example, select the 250D and then filter for 290X. If you turn the compat filter off a whole bunch more show up.

 
 
SilkyZ 1 point 7 months ago

I think only works some of the time though. I searched compatable cards for a Li Lian tu100 and a Titan showed up...

IDK, maybe its a bug.

 
 
manirelli [Staff] [1 Build] 2 points 7 months ago

Are you sure? I just added the TU100 to a parts list and all of the larger cards are greyed out in the filter including the Titan and Titan Black.

 
 
SilkyZ 1 point 7 months ago

Sorry, You are right, the Titan's are grayed out.

Though i think their are some slight database errors as I saw some 770's and 780's that popped up still

 
 
manirelli [Staff] [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

Some cards and longer than others which is why you may still see some.

 
 
aighamdi [2 Builds] 1 point 7 months ago

And CPU coolers' heights.

 
 
manirelli [Staff] [1 Build] 2 points 7 months ago

Also already in place.

 
 
aighamdi [2 Builds] 1 point 7 months ago

Yeah I figured it's there after I tried adding a cooler to a build. The function is there but I guess it still needs a lot of populating.

 
 
manirelli [Staff] [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

All CPU cooler heights are in the system. It is a matter of cases at this point.

 
 
SilkyZ 1 point 7 months ago

This too!

 
 
stnz [1 Build] 2 points 7 months ago

Nice guys, keep it up !

 
 
gogo809 [2 Builds] 2 points 7 months ago

Interesting at the very least!

 
 
maxbailey [1 Build] 2 points 7 months ago

Awesome work! That's so huge! PCPartPicker is in with some of the biggest guys in the industry now!

 
 
Loveandpower 2 points 7 months ago

This is pretty neat! Are there plans to do this with other brands?

 
 
Wtalk2 2 points 7 months ago

Great work! I know this may be very hard to put together but I would love to see a system implemented into PCPartPicker where users that have been registered for a certain amount of time and a certain amount of comment/build up-votes to be able to add item data to items with missing or incorrect data. This may be really hard to make but I would love to see this and I think it would really add to the helpfulness of PCPartPicker.

Hey, I have an idea! Can you guys add laptop parts? I know they aren't very upgradable, but it would be nice to compare laptops. Especially temps, and benchmark scores. Why have another site for that? Why not just have it all on here? For now, I'm just building a PC out of "custom parts" for the laptop build. That'll have to do.

 
 
tincan 1 point 7 months ago

Very cool. You guys are doing it right. Nice little tool CHECK! and OOPS! simple. Feels wrong to see other case models in the drop down but that's `nit picking.

 
 
josav09 [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

Awesome... It's just awesome

 
 
dvs98 [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

Pretty cool idea hope more companies do this.

 
 
hartjo1 1 point 7 months ago

Congrats, guys. This is a big step!

 
 
sygram 1 point 7 months ago

The more compatibility info the better. Something else, a little deeper, that would have helped me on my build was mobo, cooler, case compatibility.

 
 
winstonofwar [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

Great!

 
 
jet95 1 point 7 months ago

That looks amazing! i would love to have that

 
 
Hockeymanseven [1 Build] 1 point 7 months ago

The h440 is sexy, i wish i had bought that :P

 
 
Rustinho 1 point 7 months ago

Excellent addition. It's just a pity that I'm re-using an old case on my current build! lol :)

 
 
The_Frozen_Wolf 1 point 7 months ago

Even still, you have to be careful in the long run. My build said that all parts were compatible, but when installing my H100i, the heatsinks on my MSI motherboard left too little space for the fans. So it's always good to check dimensions.

 
 
icetorch 1 point 7 months ago

This is great news.

 
 
auris 1 point 7 months ago

this is awesome! you guys are doing a fantastic job. you make dreaming about a build so much easier!! keep going! :D

 
 
Nuclear101 1 point 7 months ago

Can anyone please help me? I tried checking for the Kraken G10 compatibility with my EVGA GTX 780Ti w/ACX cooler but some of the links show they are compatible but some don't, and they all just say "EVGA GTX 780 TI"

 
 
philip [Staff,Submitter] [9 Builds] 1 point 7 months ago

Do you know the part number of your card?

 
 
Nuclear101 1 point 7 months ago

Yes, it's EVGA 03G-P4-2884-KR

 
 
jmccarble [4 Builds] 1 point 7 months ago

This is awesome! I think the compatibility checker should be on every computer parts seller!

Would really like if somebody could tell me if this build is good or not,get some advice and help on how to improve my first build

Will dual PSU support be here soon? I know it's really rare to need 2 but personally I would rather have 2 750W PSU's than 1 huge 1500W one.

PS: Nice to see Fan Controllers on here now :)
