Description

My first mini-ITX PC Build!!!

PcParkPicker system builder somehow flags the Asus Impact DTX (X570) motherboard as non-compatible for NZXT H210i case. However, this board, DTX form factor, does fit in every mini-ITX cases. Only difference from ITX and DTX is where the PCB of the board goes all the way down to where 2 slot GPU will cover. Normally, mini ITX boards, PCB length will end right at the PCIe slot.

Here is my build video in YouTube, please do check it out! :D

Many people were curious on my thermals for the CPU and GPU for the build. So here are my temp results.

CPU: Idle at 46c (Ryzen Stock cooler) and Load at 78c (Cinebench R20) GPU: Idle at 48c (Zero Fan mode) and Load at 76c (Call of Duty: MW @ 1080p Max setting play time 1 hour)

Hope this helps out with the question and I will update this post as I see more frequently asked questions! Overall, really nice case!! :D

Thanks!!

nice build. Would you say this case, H210 can handle this cpu and gpu? in terms of airflow?

Thanks! Yes, thermals were interestingly a surprise lol... Max load temps on CPU was 78c and GPU at 76c. I guess it means a fair enough airflow through the case. :D

Ive built in this case a few times, cpu temps will never be an issue he could drop those temps down by getting a a better cooler but there really isnt a need. Gpu thermals are a bit different though getting an sfx or sfx l power supply remedies those issues but with a full sized psu the fans are going to crank way up to keep the gpu cool

Nice clean build. How is the fan noise of the CPU cooler? is it "ok" on load or ingame?

Thanks!! For the noise, the fact that Ryzen stock cooler gets real loud when load, but this case really does the job on minimizing that noise which I was surprised. I have tried this stock cooler on difference cases like Fractal Design Meshify and Phanteks Evolve X, these cases were much louder than this NZXT H210 case. So I could say it is fairly quiet!

Thank you for our feedback, I got a corsair 280x case and it is known for not having a good air flow, so everytime my 3rd gen cpu boost, my cooler boost like crazy also :(

ohh yesss, I usually go into BIOS and set all my fan curves to normal and silent to minimize the noise! Ryzen CPUs do get loud when boost,.... lol

i have multiple questions 1 i read reviews that the stock AMD cooler does not fit, did you experience that? 2 What fans did you use on the front of the case 3 did you end up using all three thermal take fans and are they aura sync RGB do you know? 4 if you are using a sync software do you find it at all creating problems when under load or at idle 5 What cables are you using and how much did they cost?

To answer your questions:

1) Stock cooler does fit perfectly with this Motherboard as you can see it on my video. No issue at all! :D 2) I just used the case fans that came with the case. There was 1 rear and 1 front pre-installed which I remove the rear one and installed to the front for 2 front intake fans (NZXT Stock case fans) 3) I only used 2 TT fans just for the rear and top(only one top fan mount for this case) for exhaust. At least for me, there was no point for me to install the last one to the front... doesnt seems to match. 4) I did not installed any software for RGB effects. Im just fan of basic rainbow effect where most of the RGB fans are pre-set to rainbow as default. 5) Cables are from Corsair pro sleeves. It comes in a set. I think i paid $70? for the whole set. You could probably find them in Amazon, newegg, etc.

Hope it helps! :D

Thanks!

Really cool build. Are you controlling the RGB through the Mobo software or an RGB controller?

Why in the world would you put an 850w PSU in this build?

My congrats on the clean build and thank you for providing informative images. I was interested in how the slightly longer Mini DTX would sit in this case next to the GPU and the resulting thermals. Reading through your responses, you put my mind at ease.
