Description

Updated my previous build with a new monitor and cpu cooler. TLDR from my last post, mini ITX build for college.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Awesome cooler. I like that it covers/cools the VRMs so that you can still see the RAM. Mainly purchased it for a noise improvement over the Wraith Stealth stock cooler. The only noise I can hear at idle is the hard drive.

Motherboard

Died randomly after 3 months. Seems that clearing the CMOS fixed it, but still not cool. I'll probably upgrade to a X570 or B550 board when they release.

Monitor

Awesome monitor, especially for the price. 1440p is a little hard on my 2060, but I still get 100+ frames on everything.

I have a question about the NZXT H200 and the Corsair SF600 80+ Gold. PCPartPicker says that these aren't compatible. However, it says that the SF600 80+ Platinum is compatible. Do you know why one is and one isn't?

Also, do the stock cables of the SF600 reach in this build?

I honestly have no idea, I just ignored it because I knew they would work. The stock cables are too short, but I planned on using cable extensions anyways so in the end it saved me cable clutter. Sorry for the late response
