Description

Hello there,

I decided to go for an ITX build one more time.

Problems I encountered during the build, please read carefully if you´re planning to go for a full RGB Mini ITX system:

  • The included smart hub with the NZXT 210i had one of the led channels broken, therefore I couldn´t connect all the led strips, fans, etc. So I had to go for the Hue+ Controller afterwards in order to get everything up and running.

  • Not all full size GPU will fit in the case if you have an AIO cooler like the Kraken M22, only 270 mm. long cards will fit, if you don´t plan to have an AIO, any card 300 mm. card like the Asus Strix series will fit in the case. Keep that in mind.

  • The Kraken M22 backplate touches one of the motherboard connectors at the back of it and I had to chop off one of the corners of the Intel mounting system, so now is fine.

It was a bit of a pain in the *** to get everything connected, but with a little bit of patience and organization you can get it done.

Was it difficult? Yes Would I ever do it again? Absolutely.

Cheers guys.

Are you able to actually run your RAM at 3600 MHz? I'm just wondering.

Yes, it´s set up at 3600 Mhz

I have the same CPU as you and I'm planning on getting a 2070. Have on you had any issues so far on bottlenecking, I'm aware that I'll experience it as well at 1080p but I'm wondering how much?

Is the loss of fps very noticeable at 1080p? I'm already planning to get the 2070, 850w PSU, and another monitor for work/gaming (1080p VA panel) but if the fps drop is noticeable I might have to change my plans on upgrading.

Game test on a GTX 1060 3GB: MW 2019, I have it around 90-110 fps on relatively high settings aside from shadows.

I can´t tell if there is any bottlnecking on 1080p, as I don´t have another CPU to compare the results, what I can tell you is that I play on Ultra settings at basically every game (Jedi Fallen Academy, NFS Heat, CoD MW) and I have 90-100 fps

Do you use a 1080p monitor yourself or a 1440p? I've read that the Supers perform better at those settings and aren't as bottlenecked as 1080p when running 2600 CPUs.

1080p planning on getting a 1440p soon though.

Good looks! I think you've convinced me to continue on with the 2070 super :)

I strongly recommend to upgrade to a 3600, the 2070 Super will be thankfull for that.

Didn´t try a stress test, but while gaming is between 65 and 75ºC

Do you need the NZXT Hue+ Led Controller or am I fine without them? Thanks.
