Description

Here's my recent build that I.. uh.. splurged on. :P I originally tried to build with the Phanteks ENTHOO EVOLV Shift but my old 1080 Ti FTW3 Hybrid did not fit, so I changed it to this H200i. I actually like it much better since I was able to match white on white. I currently have the black version of the RAM, but I have the white ones on the way and will be returning the black ones.

Building in this case was quite easy compared to the Evolv Shift. My previous build was in Phanteks' old Evolv case, so this was basically a smaller and upgraded case. I really like the included fan/rgb controller (CAM), although I wish I didn't have to log-in online every time I turn my computer on..

I swapped out the X52's fans for the SilentWings 3 (high-speed on top, regular on the bottom) and the 2080 Ti for the high-speed version. The upper case fan is the regular SilentWings 3. On idle, it is inaudible. Under load, going up to 2200 RPM makes it a bit more audible, but easily masked with whatever my speakers are outputting.

I actually also ordered a custom made white MSI backplate for my 2080 Ti, but due to me not doing measurements, it does not fit. The included backplate of the 2080 Ti already barely fits, lol.

EDIT: Updated with the white version of the RAM with new pictures :)

EDIT2: Just installed the Vive Wireless Adapter into the m.2 slot in the front of the board and was able to fit the adapter into the back. Works great.

Part Reviews

CPU

Works great. A little hot even with water cooling, but that might be because of the case.

CPU Cooler

Does great and has RGB. The included fans are quiet but not as quiet as the SilentWings 3.

Motherboard

I originally got it for the RGB (don't judge me..) but that's practically useless. Does fine and has lots of features. The AI overclocking raise the voltage too much, so I manually OC'ed.

Memory

Great performance and has amazing RGB lights.

Storage

Had this for a while now and no problems as the main OS drive.

Storage

Fast and reliable. Stores most of my Steam games.

Storage

Might've been superfluous but I didn't feel like uninstalling from my 850.. plus it was on sale during Black Friday :shrug:

Storage

Had this since my last build; good storage for my Plex, but I plan on removing this for an external drive that's probably around 8 TB to allow more airflow in the case. Sometimes clicks/grinds, but it's rare.

Video Card

Performs amazingly, but the included fan was too loud, lol. The tubing pisses me off since there is no CableMod to make it white.. and who uses non-braided tubing nowadays anyways.. the 1080Ti SeaHawk had braided tubes..!

Case

Looks good and extremely clean to build in. I really love the white..

Power Supply

I actually got the "White 2018" version. After reading reviews online, thought it would be more quiet, but it is a bit loud.

Case Fan

Super quiet for the performance.

Case Fan

Has great performance at 2200 RPM as well as the original version's quietness at <1400 RPM.

Monitor

Had this since about 5 years ago.. great monitor with 1440p, 144hz, and G-Sync. Was my main monitor before I joined the UltraWide Master Race..

Monitor

34 inches. 3440x1440. 120Hz. G-Sync. Need I say more? I just wish it was 144Hz, but well worth the trade-off.

Keyboard

Pretty quiet and originally felt a little mushy, but I ended up liking it a lot. My last board had MX Browns so this was a change. Got this to match the G560 and G900..

Mouse

Lasts 3-5 days depending on usage. Has RGB. No lag. Great mouse.

Speakers

Really awesome sound and RGB effects. Lightsync with ScreenSampler going across my Logitech devices is actually very immersive and amazing.

Other

Actually worked great! I'm not sure why, but I tried paste and it would keep overheating, probably due to me improperly remounting the cooler. This also guarantees easy upgrades/swapping and does not damage the cooler or the CPU.

I hope this gets featured because wow, is that a clean build. Even the curvature of the PSU cables is so clean.

Amazing job. +1

So so clean! NZXT seems to produce the cleanest builds, and this is no exception! Hope you enjoy every second of using it!

Compromise submitter 1 Build 2 points 4 months ago

Yes! Love NZXT.

diypartsjoy 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

You should set the RGB color on the liquid cooler to white.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

It's on RGB rotation, but yea, I've set it as white before ;P

diypartsjoy 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Why didn't you keep it white for the white build?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

I added the white one! I just wanted to show that it was also RGB capable haha.

Mdimins 1 point 4 months ago

ngl im very jealous, your build is amazing and the setup as a whole

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

kevbui 4 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

Nice! Any overclock on the i7-9700K??

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Yes! 5.2 GHz stable under Prime 95. Honestly, might dial back to 5.0 since 79C is a bit hot.

kevbui 4 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

That's awesome. 79C isn't bad. You still have tons of headroom before thermal throttling. 100C I think.

Osbrandon 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Have you ran cinebench on stock i7-9700k? If so what was your benchmark? Mine was 1383 and thought that was kinda low...

kevbui 4 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Not on a 9700K.

My 8700K (6C/12T) OC'ed to 5ghz scored 1,644. My 9600K (6C/6T) OC'ed to 4.9ghz scored 1,172. My i7-5930K (6C/12T) OC'ed to 4.4ghz scored 1,288.

Feels like you are ballpark.

Osbrandon 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Oh ok. I was just reading some reviews and people were getting like 1500 on stock settings.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Thank you! CableMod Basic Extension kit from Amazon.

3Prcntr 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Perfect monitor setup. I love it.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Thank ya!

Cheezi 2 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

TWO THINGS...

  1. I love your setup! I'm actually gonna use this as one of my inspirations for my upgraded setup...

  2. How did you set up your Logitech G560 Speaker along with your SteelSeries headset? I was looking into getting those same speakers and the Arctis Pro Wireless headset and I saw you had the Siberia 800's which are similar and I was wondering how everything would be routed.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago
  1. Thank you!

  2. They're both USB, so just change the output manually when you need. I have the G560's set up as default and Siberia as default communication device.

Cheezi 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks for answering!

You actually gave me an idea, I could use a usb switch to flip between the inputs instead of having to unplug and plug everytime I would switch

Compromise submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

You don't have to physically unplug anything to switch! Just click the audio/speaker icon in the task bar and switch from there! (Assuming you have Windows 10)

Cheezi 2 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

That actually makes more sense than the usb switcher, lol

Last question, will the dynamic lighting on the G560’s still work if the sound is switched?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Screen sampler will still work. The dynamic lighting to the audio will not work if the G560 isn't outputting sound, but it's too epileptic anyways IMHO.

Skeem689 1 point 4 months ago

Nice Vira

Attempted a white build myself, wasn't as white expected.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Thanks! My very first build (not posted) ended up not as white so I made sure I wanted this to work (although the white GPU backplate did not work...)

Acxitma 1 point 4 months ago

How did you change the tubing for the Kraken x52 to white? BOOOTIFUL BUILD +1

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

CableMod AIO Sleeving Series 2 (make sure you get series 2, since series 1 will not work).

IT_Kosta_829 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Nice rig. What is the LED wall thing, and where did you get the anime figure?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

They are called Nanoleaf Rhythm! The figure was from Hobby Search.

Tory_Future 1 point 4 months ago

Woah, you picked a lot of parts that I was thinkin of picking, though I can’t seem to decide with Intel’s Core i7-8700K and 9700K, it kinda bugs me that the 9700K only has 8 threads with its 8cores, where as the 8700K has 12threads with its 6cores. I’m GUESSING the 1thread per 8cores is faster? I’m not extremely familiar with CPU’s so what makes the 9700k better? and how is it?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Yea I had the exact same thoughts. The 9700K has 2 more real cores, vs the 8700K. In gaming, the higher clocked 9700K with more real cores should be the one that triumphs. I mainly game and watch Youtube/Twitch, so I just thought I would get the newest version. The threads are not utilized in games AFAIK. The 9700K has been great so far! No complaints from me.

Tory_Future 2 points 3 months ago

Yooo, thanks for the reply. Helps a lot and means a lot!

Fyremoon65 1 point 3 months ago

Kudos on a great looking build! There's no shame in splurging on RGB :) . If it's what you like and if your wallet can afford it then go for it! You may have given me some inspiration on my next build. Congrats on getting featured!

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks! Glad you like it.

Sponcore 1 point 3 months ago

Why is the water-block not mounted right side up?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

No room. The RAM would be in the way of the tubes.

JDawn747 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Love the nanoleaf! Can I ask what you do that requires 7TB+ of storage? lol

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

I like to keep my games stored on SSDs and have a secondary HDD storage for my Plex server for movie/anime/TV show/etc storage. I am actually going to take that out and move everything to an external 8-10TB in the future as well..

Zdurocher22 3 Builds 1 point 3 months ago

Very clean build! You should consider a dbrand skin for the Switch.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

Ohh I didn't know dbrand had Switch skins. Will definitely give that a look.

JoSchar 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

apocZed 1 point 3 months ago

Amazing build! I've always been amazed how small of a system folks like you can create, but still keep a clean aesthetic. I have to ask, where did you buy your desk from? Or did you build it?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks :)

It is an Uplift Desk, Dark Bamboo 72"x30." So I can stand whenever I want :P

Pauluxav 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Lovely build, I hope you get years of pleasure from it.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks!

Alcatraz26 1 point 3 months ago

Hi, really nice build! Both looks and power! I’m actually thinking about doing a similar build and hope you can answer some of my questions.

How close is your GPU to the radiator? Did it fit by itself or did you have to change anything around? I’m thinking about getting the same case and motherboard as you with a EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 XC (10.6 in). I also want to get it liquid cooled with the Kraken X52. Thanks!

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

There is still plenty of space with the radiator and fan both in the case. I did not have to change anything. My card is about 10.5 in, so yours will work just fine. If you want a bigger card (like my old 1080Ti FTW3), you would have to move the fans of the cooler to the outside of the case, forgoing the dust filter.

Tizi 1 point 3 months ago

+1 for the nanoleaf, ive got one of them myself and i love it

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Thanks!

zapptv 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

I have the same Mobo and the Kraken x72, I am wondering if you had any trouble getting the RGB to work on the Kraken? if so, what did you do to get them working together?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

I don't have RGB on my Kraken. Plus, the fans are intaking from the outer side of the radiator, so RGB fans would be hard to see.

zapptv 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

I meant on the CPU mounted part where it displays the NZXT logo in RGB. I cant get CAM to detect it for anything. I've everything they say to do and more

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

I assume that the x72 has the same connectors as the x52. Need to plug in the USB 2.0 header. I'm using the NZXT internal USB hub for more USB 2.0 connections since my ITX only has one header.

Oaklife 1 point 3 months ago

I've read that the silent wings 3 doesnt match with the kraken x52. Thinking of replacing with the same fans, how did you attach them? PS. gorgeous build

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Hmm mine attached fine. As far as I'm concerned, the 120mm fans have all the same housing size.

GREENGEAR31 1 point 3 months ago

Where to get the white cables and how many do I need?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Amazon! I just got one pack.

300kg 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

Nice build! Why did you only install the high speed fan on the top of the AIO? Why not high speed on both?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Honestly, I bought the regular speed ones first and decided I wanted the high speed ones for the GPU and the top of the chasis. I'll probably change the lower fans to the high speed ones eventually. :P

Woitot 1 point 3 months ago

I want to ask one thing: Where did you put your 3.5" drive? Did it fit in it's place on the bottom behind the radiator, if not where did you find place for it? I'm planning on building in the H200i whit radiator at front but I want to be sure if it fits, it looks really tight.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

It fit on the bottom of the case, in front of the PSU. It'll fit if your PSU and the cables don't take up too much space.

e1543 1 point 3 months ago

Alright you literally took my dream build and did it. Mine would be with Ryzen and a 2070 FE but like you used the same UW monitor and everything. Damn this is clean asf. Amazing work.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks!

Dulcow 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Absolute gorgeous build! I have to stay that I have "stolen" quite a few ideas from yours for my mine (https://pcpartpicker.com/b/LqJ8TW) ;-)

I had a question: how did you connect a PCIe card to the M.2 slot? I can see some kind of PCIe extender. Is it working with any M.2 slot? How much does it cost?

G.

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks! I got an adapter from Newegg and it works great! https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2RP77A2945

Dulcow 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Thanks for the steer! It looks complicated to find in Europe. I'm living in France at the moment.

I might just go for an external sound card then, might be easier to install but less fun :D Cheers, G.

TheCarsonaitor 1 point 2 months ago

Have you ever thought of just spray painting the 2080ti water cable white

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

Yea but too much of a hassle, and that cheap looking water cable would probably look bad in white.

TR3S 1 point 2 months ago

I want a build basically exactly like this! Weird question but what size is your desk because I can’t decide how big I need...

Ast3rix 1 point 1 month ago

Hi Amazing job on the case!!

I was wondering if you could tell me where you got your cables from ? I would love some blue cables since I am building a blue case.

Thanks

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

I got em from Amazon! Just type "blue cablemod" in Amazon, should be able to find some.

aviswanathan94 1 point 1 month ago

How much clearance do you have between the rear radiator fan (for the graphics card) and the NZXT Kraken cpu block?

aviswanathan94 1 point 1 month ago

I’m trying a similar build and having clearance issues, how did you fit it?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

About an inch? My GPU is pretty small. I had a 1080 Ti FTW3 previously, and had to move the radiator outside the case (where the filter is right now).

Hey I saw in the comments what CableMod your using but do you think you could link me where you bought them? Ive checked everywhere and i cant find the White series 2 sleeving kit version anywhere for sale. I hope you still respond to comments on old posts.

Elliot1561 1 point 21 days ago

Yeah, i saw that website but all I had to do was click store icon at top right to actually buy it. I just didnt see it the first time.

Also i have another question. What are those little clear clips you have connecting your white cords together? And any recommendation of nice white wires to use in a setup like yours?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 13 days ago

The clips come with the Cablemod white cables.

I got these:

Hows the airflow? I will be using this same case and im planning on water cooling my cpu and gpu by using the NZXT g12, Kraken x52, and Kraken x42. I assume you can kinda imagine what that would look like. Im worried that the airflow will be bad. Are you able to assure me that it wont be a problem?

Compromise submitter 1 Build 1 point 13 days ago

Airflow is great! I can't assure you anything since your set-up will be different from mine, but considering I have a 9700k and 2080 Ti, my temperatures are very good.
