I just built a 9600k / 5700XT system in the H210i and visually, you can't ask for a better looking computer. I will say one thing about the case though, f**k trying to cram a non-modular PSU with 30cm worth of extra cables into the back. I must've used 40 zipties tying cables together to get them to stay compact enough to put the back panel on.

Like the build man. Clean!

You need better cable combs. Those cables are a mess. Also, why is the EPS cable looped around like that? Finally, put your radiator fans on the front of the radiator so they pull air from outside the case and force it through the radiator. This build has more potential.

Recommend moving GPU up to use more lanes/better airflow, but overall clean build.

Only critique I have is to move the USB3.0 and case headers to the hole closest to the motherboard. Other than that, clean and standard. Like!

I just did a build in the ATX version of the Meshify, and I can confirm that. It's not even my computer and I love that case.

My personal build is in a Mini C, which is the same frame as the Meshify and I love it to death, EXCEPT I bought it before the TG version came out and regret not waiting the extra 2 months ;-;

This build is really clean man, it's simple but cable managed really well. Those 8700K processors are really hard to cool because Intel screwed up the thermal paste under the heat spreader.

Personal recommendation: Remove top 2 fans, remove weird middle front fan - Push the two front fans closer together.

More fans = more noise with little to no impact to case temps. It's a diminishing return. You'll remove a lot of noise and will only see about a 1-2°F increase in case temp.

If you're running a push/pull config on your CPU cooler (I can't tell, it looks too wide to be a single fan), I'd remove the fan between the rad and case exhaust. You just need to run a single fan on the case side venting out of the rear of the case.

I've probably built over 50 computers. I really enjoy it. I had to redo that mATX build 3 times before I got it right, lol.

280mm would be better than a 240mm, if you're running an AIO. Personally, I prefer air coolers. I'm actually also rocking an H7, but on my 6700k and I like it. It's a good cooler. So unless you're going to do serious overclocking, your H7 is perfectly adequate. You can always add an AIO afterwards and still use the fans so long as you match the radiator size to the fans.

Clean. Small inputs.

  • Route the cables that are running along the bottom of the PSU shroud, to run underneath and behind the motherboard. (Pull the motherboard, run them through the hole behind it and out from underneath the board to plug them in.)

  • Invest in EZDIY individual sleeved cable extensions on Amazon. They're $30. They'll really clean up your build and get rid of the mustard cables. Phanteks also sells a $30 cable extension kit. They're universal.

  • I'd reroute the USB 3.0 cable so that all that slack isn't there and the cable is more straight.

  • Move the top exhaust fan to the front, I'd recommend buying another matching NZXT fan for a 2in1out fan config. The case currently is going to have negative pressure, which will pull dust in all crevices.

Notable upgrades in the future - Gold rated PSU. Tier S or A preferred (list here: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/986897-psu-tier-list-30/) Before you upgrade your GPU AND before you overclock. The BR is NOT an overclock friendly PSU.

Phanteks black individually sleeved cable extensions.

Clean up the cable management and route everything better.

Otherwise you got a winner my dude.

The 970 is pretty close to the 1060 performance wise and the 1060 is regarded now as the "defacto standard for 1080p gaming." The 4570 will still be relevant for a couple more years at least.

The board is running fine. The B250 boards aren't very feature rich, but they do the job. The CPU cooler is a great alternative over the stock but for $5 more I'd get the H7. It's larger and quieter, but if you prefer the low profile aesthetic the C7 is literally the perfect upgrade from stock.

The build wouldn't get SLI in the future and it was more cost effective to go with the B250 chipset.

Thank you though! I love hearing how clean builds come out. (:

No problem whatsoever. It's touted as a mITX cooler due to it's size. Not that it doesn't work with ATX boards. It's a sleek and quiet alternative to the stock cooler.

This PC was about that price range, and it's gorgeous. If aesthetics are in order, then I'd recommend this.

This PC will dominate 1080p at 144hz or 1440p at 60hz.

He mostly plays BF1 and Watchdogs 2 and the like. Averaging 100+ @ 1080p High-Ultra. Plays pretty well overall.

A 240mm definitely fits in the top and I'm pretty sure would fit in the front with some finagling. I've seen front mounted 240mm rads on custom loops but not AIOs.

The two fans included didn't meet my tastes for looks. I ended up using them as spare radiator fans in a friend of mine's build. I'm running the 3 Riing fans because they're quiet and look really good.

I originally DID have 5 Riing fans in it, but I decided to take the top two out because of looks, space, and noise.

The included case fans are fine if you don't mind the way they look, just not for me :)

Definitely worth it. Color accuracy is good after the calibration (I used the top voted one in Amazon and tweaked from there). 165hz is wonderful. Viewing angles are good for a TN panel and unless you're playing at a 90 degree angle from your monitor it's not going to affect you.

I'm considering buying another.

The m.2 port on the motherboard is pretty much solely for a low profile WiFi card. It isn't an m.2-2280 port like is becoming standard for m.2 SSD's.

Buy a 2.5" SSD and run the SATA cables and you'll be fine.

PWM but they're running 3 pin because they're not connected to the mobo in any way so.

They're got an extension from Thermaltake that undervolts the fan to make it spin slower and produce less noise. They run at "100%" with the undervoltage in mind. They're actually attached to a Phobya fan hub (runs off molex but has 6 different 3 pin headers for fans) located just behind the HDD in the bottom to keep all the fans together and keep cables tidy.

You can baaarely hear this PC until you put the GPU fans at about 70%.

I'd replace all the stock NZXT fans with Riing RGB fans and I'd move the SSD to the left bracket instead of the front but those are my only gripes. It's really clean man!
