With this build I wanted a compact ITX case that was minimalistic in looks, but still functional and quiet at the same time. To be used mainly for productivity, movies, and some gaming.
Originally had Bequiet fans in mind as black was easy to work with for color matching, but the Noctua colors and fan quality honestly grew on me. I already knew RGB lighting wouldn't match well with the brown and beige, so I went with very subtle RGB lights in the case.
fell in love with the minimalistic box look of the NZXT H200. I painted the cable bar dark brown using tamiya acrylics, and painted the intake grilles black since I got the blue H200. Finally added pvc wallpaper on the front and top PC panels to give the case a wooden look.
The 1600 is definitely sufficient for my needs. Will probably upgrade to the Ryzen 3000 series in 3 years more or less. Average temps for daily use would be only around 38C with the help of the NH-U12S cooler.
Really impressed with this Gigabyte card. It's virtually silent on idle with the Noctua fans. On full load and in gaming, I can definitely hear the build at arms length distance, but the pitch of the fans spinning is definitely not as disturbing as my old Powercolor HD7850/FX6300 system.
Temps of the 2060 super at load (playing Shadow of the Tomb Raider) would be at 68C average, which is pretty good for an ITX case situated in a room with no airconditioning. Fans are capped at 1200RPM.
all fans are Noctua, and are positioned as follows: Front Intake: one NF-F12 on top, one NF-A15 on the bottom Rear Exhaust: one NF-F12 Undershroud Intake one NF-A15
I found out from another user here that a fan could fit under the PSU shroud of the NZXT H200 if you use an SFX powersupply. A NF-A15 fan was mounted through the shroud holes using the rubber mounts that come in the noctua box. To keep it more locked in place, I shoved some sticky tack near the opposite side of the fan (see pics). There's literally just a mm of space between the fan and the top panel of the psu
there's a Phanteks Halos led ring mounted on the case ceiling. It originally was for the cpu cooler fan, but it didn't look good at all and detracts from the theme. Instead I just placed it there with the included dust filter. Used some zipties.
went with 450 watts since it seems enough for the 2060 super and Ryzen 5 1600 combo (none of them overclocked and I don't plan to OC either). Might go for 600 watts when I go for a beefier gpu in ~4 years time.
needed to buy extension cables for the CPU power cable and motherboard 24pin cable. The cables provided by Corsair were too short. GPU PCIE cables are fine though, no need to buy extensions.
