This system has been in the works for some time now. (So long ago that prices don't even reflect what I actually had spent on memory and storage.) This build first started off in an Fractal Design Define Nano S, an H7 cooler with some Thermaltake Riing fans to boot (Some of you Fractal fans may say that's heresy) and did pretty well there. Temps were alright and the build looked alright too but there was no real wow factor to the case or components inside.
Then comes the NZXT H200i a new small form factor case with all the mini bells and whistles. But I didn't want to really follow the whole RGB everything craze (too much). I Wanted more to stick with a nice simple white and black theme if possible. Needless to say after a couple moments though I immediately bought the H200i and knew there were going to need to be some changes for my systems move. I just so happened upon Noctua's newest offering of Chromax accessorized fans and coolers. Now when it came to the cooler i was pretty skeptical on whether or not it would fit in the case in a couple different ways. Though after some confirmation from PcPartPicker and even Noctua themselves (just to make sure) it turns out the cooler should fit and fit it did....JUST...
Now I know this case doesn't make for the best blower card case and i have experienced my first high temp gaming in GTA5 and Warframe. It is just there though as its not getting above 83C yet. So if i was to do any upgrade it might be a water cooled card or maby even a smaller card that would at least hover over the perforations in the basement.
Overall I'm still very happy with this system and how well it does, and even with the thermal issues on the card I knew it was going to be an issue.
Edit: More Photo's per some request to see the full Setup. I may have cleaned... Also Case pic's now with more Cable Management!!
Also update on GPU temps! After fiddling around for the first time in MSI Afterburner i was able to reduce the GPU temps down to a nice 68c Max (for the moment). If i find any more interesting things to note about GPU or even CPU temps and whatnot i will definitely update more.
