OK thanks for your advice. I have now added all the parts from my previous build.
Thank you! It works fine and I’m satisfied with the looks of it. But If I had to start all over again I would go for the H200 and add devices compatible to the big brands like Asus or MSI. NZXT has a closed system with unique connections that once you go with it, you depend on NZXT entirely. Without any serious tampering, you cannot add any other brand. In case I wanted to go custom water cooling, there is no way I could control EK waterblocks for example via cam software. So this build is pretty much done, I only plan on upgrading graphics.
The h200i comes with a smart device and one fixed led strip. I decided to go with the nzxt ecosystem, bought two additional led strips and a bundle of aer rgb fans with a hue+ device. Then I needed an internal usb hub. It’s a mess connecting all those devices but it works fine controlled via cam software.
I plan on improving cable management shortly. I will then describe connections in more detail.
Aha, I see. Thanks for the details!
Very nice and clean built, good choice of components! How did you connect the rgb?
Thanks! Only played Mankind Divided so far at around 115 fps.
Thanks for your feedback. Definately could have saved some. Instead I decided to go big on the cpu for now and only upgrade the gpu in the future. But you never know….
The cardboard already came with the 3d-wave design. Lucky find. I didn't do anything to it other than fitting it inside the case.
It is the same brand as Galax. They sell their stock in Europe as KFA². It is on the cheaper side compared to Asus but it does the work just as well.
Thanks! It does have a nice effect on the lighting.
It'a cardboard design I found. Just had to make it fit the case :-)
