Description

Just finished assembly of this beauty. Didnt had time to test it yet. Will come back with more info. Hope you all like it.

UPDATE: Just posted some new pictures. Thanks D. Roc again for the white gpu backplate idea. I think it looks a amazing.

Ok as for temps as you can see in the photo the max i reached after heavy stress tests (with closed case) was 76° on the cpu and 77° on the gpu. Now, keep in mind that in game the temps will be 4-5 degrees cooler since no game keeps the cpu and gpu at 100% load all the time as the stress test. Also, keeping the tempered glass open while gaming drops the temps by 1-3 degrees aswell.

The cpu is overclocked at 4.8ghz and the gpu is default oc wich is almost 2000 from the box so its enough. Curently having a 2560x1080 monitor (planing on geting a 3440x1440 one soon) and in battlefield 1 with ultra settings and 130% resolution scale i get 160-180 fps.

If you got anymore questions let me know. Cheers.

ITX case (NZXT H200i black/white) - 130£ ITX motherboard (ASUS Strix Z370i) - 190£ CPU (Intel i7-8700k) - 320£ RAM x2 (Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 3000Mhz White - 225£ GPU (EVGA GTX 1080ti SC2) - 850£ CPU cooler (NZXT X52) - 120£ SSD SATA (Samsung 860 Pro 256GB) - 115£ SSD NVMe M.2 (Samsung 960 EVO 250GB) - 110£ PSU (Corsair SF600) - 90£ NZXT AER RGB fans 2x 120 - 50£ CableMod white sleeved cables + combs (50£) NZXT internal USB hub (20£) NZXT HUE+ (50£) Custom white GPU backplate + Punisher sticker (from coldzero.eu) TOTAL - 2300£

UPDATE 2: Just installed the NZXT G12 GPU bracket and Corsair H75 with Arctic mx4 thermal paste on gpu and cpu and couldnt be more happier for the results. The Gpu temps never go above 55° under load wich is amazing.

Big fan of the NZXT white cases, nice simple build with great components. Wanted to show you this, because I think it would be the icing on the cake for this build. Honestly was looking at the same case with many of the same components for 4+ multi-core build.

Check this guy work out, he does awesome custom graphics card backplates. I think a white NZXT would be awesome in this case. Could even do a SSD cover with same, would look very slick.

Good idea. Gonna look for some white backplates later. Saw some awesome one on V1 Tech site aswell. As for the ssd i really like it as it is.

Hi. Ive updated the description and added some more photos. Have a look.

Where did you hide the usb 2.0 cable that plugs into the hub on one end and into the motherboard on the other end? Is it hidden behind the gpu?

  • 15 months ago

Hi. Gonna try to explain, hope you can understand me. It is plugged above the gpu, on the left hand side under the silver cover on the mobo with the asus logo on it that hides the m.2 ssd, and the it runs down behind the gpu in a hole that goes into the psu shroud that hold the usb hub.

I have the same exact gpu and also plan on moving to a H200i, very curious of what the gpu temps will be!

I have the same case, gpu, cpu, cooler, storage, and PSU! Can't wait to build it this week.

Its painful paying for that GPU - Should I return and expect a dip soon - that is the question.

What cables did you buy?

  • 17 months ago

CableMod white ones. Not extensions.

Nice build i'm looking for either H200i or H400i haven't decided yet. Can i ask what temp you get on the GPU and CPU at full load under long period of gaming? I still remember my H440i build, my evga 1080 was getting hot because no matter what i did the air was trapped in the chassi.

Did you get the light strip, kraken and aer fans to all light up?

I had to buy the hue+ for the fans

JayTwoCents had max temp of 73C on the GPU (He didn't stress the CPU), what is your room temp? Also what RPM on your GPU and case fans, does it get loud? Did you use any Sata power adapter?

does the logo from the x52 lights up? if i recall that z370i had only 1 2.0 header?

Hi. I had to but the nzxt usb hub wich gives you 4 2.0 headers

Question, did you have any issues with the h200i and the SF600 PSU? PPP seems to think they are incompatible. Thanks in advance.

  • 15 months ago

Hi. No issues whatsoever. Dunno why PPP shows incompatibility with these 2. It makes no sense. Everything runs perfect even with cpu oc'd at 5ghz and gpu oc'd at 2050mhz

I'm getting a similar issue. Did by any chance you use custom cables to connect the PSU to the MOBO? In my research, there may be issues for the Corsair cables NOT reaching the MOBO

Awesome build though

I used cablemods cables for corsair (not extensions). Everything is fine.

Did you go 1x usb2 from mobo to nzxt external hub, then plugged fans into hue+ then into hub. Then kraken into hub and lightstrip into hub?

Cool looking build! I have also a build in H200i but I'm having problems with m.2 running really hot while under load. What kinda temps do you have on the m.2 drive?

Hi. HWiNFO tells me its at 45°. And it stays like that when transfering files from m2 to ssd and vice versa.

Does the Hue+ fit on the front SSD tray? Where did you mount yours?

Hi. It should fit yes. I just hid mine behind the PSU out of sight.

Love these cases, the more and more i see of them the more i want to build one, quick question, how is your airflow around your GPU , i already have a Msi 1080ti gaming x, just needed to know what yours is like for airflow. Thanks

Hi. I was getting around 75° on the gpu while gaming. Now i just bought a NZXT G12 GPU bracket and a Corsair H75 and im getting 50° at full load its amazing.

Hey where did you find these white cables for the Corsair SF PSU? I have looked everywhere :( Was it custom?

Hi,

Great pc !!

Some questions : - You put a kraken X52 in the front panel. What should be the maximum length of the graphics card (between the back of the panel and the fan, how much centimeter?) - The X52 kraken on the front to a flow of air extraction (push) or aspiration (Pull)? - The fan at the top to a flow of air extraction (push) or aspiration (Pull)? - The fan in the back to a flow of air extraction (push) or aspiration (Pull)?

Thank you.

Hi. Sorry for the late reply. The max gpu size you will fit is 27cm. As for the fans, the front ones are pulling air from outside, pushing it through the radioator inside. The top and back ones are pushing the warm air inside the case outside.

Looking good! Thank you so much for building this. Now I know for sure I can pull this off.

Hey, just one question. I have the same card and I also want to install the NZXT Kraken G12. I was wondering if you really HAVE to remove the mid plate and back plate in order to put on the G12?

Im getting 70° on the cpu and 75° on the gpu after hours of battlefield 1 on ultra. Its decent

Air flow is pretty good.
