Description

I wanted to build something that would last a couple of years. It's an small but powerful build, pretty much everything I wanted. I am very pleased with the result, love the Noctua fans classic colors. I think they look great on an all black case theme.

NZXT should mark the Kraken X62 as a compatible cooler for the H210 cases. I had zero fitting issues. I was even able to fit a pull/push system with some wiggling and following some build steps in order to fit the GPU. There is 1mm clearance between the fan and the GPU. I am running it without the CAM software, I hate RGB anyways.

While the pull/push X62 may seem overkill, I'am planning to OC the CPU in the near future. It also helped bringing down the GPU temps around 5 degrees. I had two NF-A12x25 laying around from my previous build so I used them as chassis fans to move air out however, I am still debating if I should put the top one to push air to the GPU. Any ideas?

The fan may be a good idea, just low on the multiply ports. Are you useing PWM spitter on the controller? I use MASTERCASE MC500Mt midtower which I love.

What do you mean by low on the multiply ports? I have all the radiator fans connected to the CPU_FAN, the AIO pump to the CPU_OPT at full speed and the two Noctuas to the CHASSIS_FAN.

Port on front of the case. Its still a solid case.

It's sleek and minimalist. Thermals are good too I guess. As for the ports, unfortunately my board does not support a front Gen2 3.1 USB. Other than that, I am happy with the ports available.

100%

I can only replace the memory sticks, SSD and the PSU without taking apart everything else.

Very nice build! Very similiar with mine in the look. Noticed that you went for a smaller PSU which are nice for GPU temps.

Is it? Mine is a full size PSU. I really like Seasonic products.

I checked the size and compared it to the SFX from corsair that I have. It's not much bigger compared a normal full size PSU

Nice build. I used the same case and cooler (just the original fans though). I get 5.0Ghz on all cores 8700K so you should be fine with a nice OC. Did you install the little round GPU stand that came with the case underneath the GPU? (looks like the GPU is sagging a bit)

I am, are you using it? Yes, I noticed it after I saw the pictures. Hopefully I can align it with some wiggling. To remove the GPU I would need to take the DDR out and unscrew the front bracket that holds the radiator/fans.

What are the placements of the 6 fans (which ones are 140s and which ones are 120s)?

(4) 140s are on the radiator (pull/push) and the (2) 120s are on the case (pushing air out).

Awesome build! Planning to build one in This case also. How are the temps of gpu and cpu under load gaming?

Hey! Do you have any other pics of your build and also the back of it I'm bloody loving the minimalist look of it and also any videos you used to get that aio in? Probably gunna do almost the same build but with amd... i love the way you mounted the aio too! How r gpu thermals under load?
