What made you swap the nr200p?
New PSU ordered and managed to source an AIO
I grabbed a White PCIE3 version , should be here tomorrow.
Also flipped the A12x25 on black ridge as an exhaust, only really dropped 1C which I would count more as measurement error so probably does not really matter.
I also decided to make the move from the NR200 for the smaller footprint. I previously had the NZXT H1 and liked how it sat on the desk, but the thermals weren't great.
Managed to build mine this evening after waiting since Wednesday for some longer standoffs to finally turn up.
Really pleased with how it’s turned out. Still need to tidy the cables up a little more to get it 100%.
I’m also considering getting the glass side panel for the mobo side to see the AIO screen better.
Here’s some pics
Here’s with the 20mm mobo spacers to create a nice little cable management gap
Also managed to squeeze my spare 1TB 2.5 SSD under the PSU
And a 92mm Noctua fan on top as well
Full specs are
Gigabyte Aorus B550i mobo
Zotac trinity RTX 3090
32gb Team Group 3600mhz CL16 ram
NZXT Kraken Z63 280mm AIO
1 TB sabrent rocket NVME
256gb sabrent rocket NVME (boot)
1 TB Samsung 2.5” SSD
Noctua 92mm exhaust fan
Looks really nice, what size of standoffs did you get?.
20mm ones from the rain forest company.
Think they are advertised as 20+6 male to female (6mm threaded to go in the original standoffs and 20mm spacer)
i forgot you can just screw multiple standoffs together.
ah moving again? got bored of the i100?
Yeah, not enhough room for chunky cards.
This is my favourite case by far. Would have liked the dan c4 but my gpu is too big for that case
Also forgot to mention they are M3 thread
Build looks great...... I take it the top of the CPU block must be quite close to side panel after using the additional standoffs?
And your additional fan on top, have you been able to secure it?
Cable management looks doable but tight. I've got an NZXT X63 and Corsair SF750 PSU on the way. I don't have any external drives at the moment, only 2x NVME drives so should cut down on some cabling. The taller mobo standoffs look like a good idea!
I'll be using Kraken x53 240mm with Noctua NFA12 fans, sf750, 9700k and 3070 Aorus.
Thanks mate, yes the cpu block is quite close to the side panel now. About 2mm gap or so, the side panel goes on no problems though so all is good.
With regards to the top fan I used some double sided sticky tape on the edge of the fan and stuck it to the case. Sounds like a bodge but it actually works really well.
Indeed, the cable management isn’t to difficult it’s a little fiddly but if you take your time you can get it looking pretty good.
I removed the centre spine from the case to run the tube going to the bottom rad port on the GPU side underneath the spine as it creates a better tube run.
I got the idea for the standoffs from a guy on Reddit so can’t take all the credit but that does make cable management so much easier
