Description

Ordered most of the parts from Amazon.com after thorough comparisons for prices. Building the PC went smoothly no issues except for Kraken X52 CPU block piece was too large to fit horizontally it is pushing the RAM heatsink, I had to mount it vertically.

I was going to build something similar but the Kraken x52 mounted vertically is killing my OCD. Gorgeous build.

Hey lildooby

if you wanted to avoid mounting the Kraken X52 vertically , you still can do it with all the same parts in my build except for the Mobo I think Gigabyte Z390 AORUS mITX has more clearance between the RAM slots and the CPU "I've seen builds with this mobo+kraken mounted horizontally"

ASUS mobo has relatively big heatsink over I/Os which leaves smaller clearance!

thanks for your comment :)

This build looks incredible, very clean and I like the way you added some accent lighting behind the motherboard as it adds a lot of depth. With that 9900k and a 2080S, this thing is a compact powerhouse too. How are the GPU temps being right next to the radiator?

Hello AlteriusOmega ,

GPU temp range 38-40C idle 76-82C under load "e.g. playing games at ultra settings for 4 hrs continuously"

thanks for your comment :)

The background lights are from the Strix z390i, it comes with them! I used this exact build as a reference for my Black Friday computer.

Love it.

Great build dude, how are the load temps with your kraken x52 and 9900k?

hey MacDiddy

since i completed my build one week ago I haven't overclocked the CPU yet , currently in stock I ran Prime95 stress test im hitting between 49C - 55C .. GPU after playing shadow of tomb raider for an hour on ultra settings it hits 78C-82C I think that is to be expected for small cases like H210i.

Ok sounds pretty decent given the size of the case.

Is there any sagging of the gpu? I recently installed the same gpu in the same case and noticed mine was sagging a bit. Any ideas how to fix it? The rubber piece that came with the case doesn't reach the gpu so it doesn't help with the sagging

Hey avt1995

I'm using the GPU stand that came with the case , it is height-adjustable can be placed in one of the holes over the PSU shroud but in order to place it in the correct position you have to plug the GPU first then you specify which hole is the right one for the stand keeping in mind it won't interfere with the fan . after that unplug the GPU , place the stand , plug the GPU and adjust the height by rotation to support the card. you will be able to the reach the stand beneath the GPU the cool about this thing it's hidden and I believe it is the only solution for GPU support in H210i case because GPU support bracket cannot be used !

hope that helps :)

Oh wow didn't realize the one that came with the case is height-adjustable. Thanks for the reply/help! Great build btw!

Hi. beautiful PC I'm planning on building a similar one. You mentioned you are getting about 82 degrees tops with your GPU. Are you using the standard fan curve? I thought I could run my GPU at 75- degrees. But now I'm a bit worried.

Hey adrcg

its expected to see such GPU temps on miniITX cases , giving the fact the small form factor and the ventilation. my PC set on normal mode in ASUS UEFI EZ system tuning , I have changed it for testing to performance mode Im getting slightly lower GPU temps at around 36C idle , 75-77C on overloading.

thanks for you comment :)

nice, do u think the case would fit the bigger 280mm x62 aio?

hey nicoboiii

this case is basically designed for front 2x140mm-120mm fans or exclusively 240mm-120mm AIO radiator . this is true according to the specs from NZXT. but actually I found videos on youtube explaining how they managed to fit 280mm AIO with no modifications needed . although it's a bit of a hassle but yea it can be done!

thanks for you commenct :)

I am looking to build something very similar to you, however, is there any way to mound the AIO horizontally, I could not cope with it vertical :(

Hey SamJayy

you have two options: 1. same parts in my build except for ASUS mobo you have to pick another mobo with more clearance between CPU block and RAM slots like Gigabyte Z390 AORUS mITX . 2. Corsair vengeance RGB pro has tall heatsink which is the cause of height issue to AIO CPU block cannot be mounted horizontally. Im not 100% sure about the RAM but i think if you picked RAM sticks with relatively smaller heatsink or RAM without heatsink it would fit without issues .however, RAMs without heatsink is not preferred option for overclockers .

hope this helps :)

Did you connect one of your four fans to the motherboard while connecting the rest to the smart device? I'm thinking of building in this case with a similar fan configuration but I know the smart device built into the case only supports up to 3 fan channels.
