Description

Uploading in case someone finds my build useful. The Sapphire Nitro fits in the H200 with 2-3mm spare by the fans, and maybe 5mm on the underside.

Temperatures while gaming with 100% GPU utilisation sit around 82C (while no frame rate cap applied). The GPU fans are actually relatively quiet, and my case fans end up being louder while under load. I think these temps are fairly normal for a 5700 XT.

Tested a range of games and find that my older CPU still seems to do a decent job of feeding the GPU (CPU utilisation around 40-80% depending on the game). I game on a 75Hz LG 2560x1080 ultrawide monitor, but if you're trying to run super-high refresh rates it might be the weak-link however. I will probably upgrade in another year or so.

for the same price as the i5 7600 you could have gotten a Ryzen 5 3600 and had 2 more cores, 8 more threads, 30 more MB of cache, and higher clocks. its kind of a no brainer to me.

Sorry should have provided more context, the 7600 and mobo was from a previous build, would definately go for the 3600 if buying today

Wow! You know what, I was looking for the exact same build on pcparpicker for a while (where Sapphire's long Nitro+ card will be put into the nzxt h200).

Now, I know it will fit in my future build in nzxt h210i too. Thanks for your sharing!

Yeh i took a gamble as i wasnt sure if it would fit. Seems to be happy tho, no problems with noise or heat so far.

Updated on temps? How’s the 5700xt doing? :)

Is there a space between the psu shroud and the bottom of the GPU? I can’t tell from my perspective if GPU is saggy. If it’s a bit saggy, what recommendation can you give?

Sorry havnt checked this in a while. There is maybe 4-5mm under the gpu. No gpu sag at all as the Nitro has a solid metal frame - it dosent flex at all
