That is clean af

I don't even see what's going on here, where's the mobo, the GPU? Is it just a small build?

ID: hcp4qjv

The MOBO is under the GIANT heatsink, and the gpu is just below it (you dont see the gpu heatsink because it is water cooled) and it is a small format gpu too

Damn, that's beautiful! What's the specs for everything?

ID: hcmptuc

Specs: CPU-3700x GPU-Sapphire Vega 56 (flashed to 64) MOBO-Asrock b550i phantom RAM-Corsair Vengeance 3200 (OC to 3600 cl16) Case-NZXT H210 Storage-Samsung 980pro 1tb CPU Cooler-Noctua NH-D15s Case fans-Noctua Radiator-Hardware Labs GTS240 Waterblock-Byksky Other water cooling-EKWB pump, tubes, fittings

Can you tell me your oc settings for RAM? I got also vengeance 3200 and it behaves like shit.

ID: hcptw4h

Why did you decide to get this absolute chonk of a cooler for the 3700x?

Clean! I just put together an all black build in a H210 as well. How are your GPU temps?

ID: hcn55yg

Fantastic! Maxes out in the low 70’s under and over locked synthetic load

“Who needs airflow?” -NZXT owners

ID: hcojo75

You're getting downvoted, but it's not like Gamers Nexus tests disagree with this conclusion.

ID: hcpcbv3

Happens literally every time I criticize any “pretty” build that hits the front page and uses garbage products. Can’t beat the children on this site that totally know better and prefer form over function.

ID: hcpnl0x

Part of the reason for water cooling was the lack of air for the GPU

6 : Anonymous2021/09/13 04:10 ID: hcnitdy

for a second I thought the GPU was just using the block to cool it and I got confused. Then I saw it was running to the radiator.

So tight…. I can’t breathe!

Wow, this is so beautiful ! Clean and tight!

That's clean af!

I love how you have routed the GPU cables.

12 : Anonymous2021/09/13 12:56 ID: hcooier

I am confused. That Chromax by Noctua heatsink looks like an air system, so do you have a loop only for the GPU?

ID: hcornp7


13 : Anonymous2021/09/13 14:16 ID: hcoyj4d

I had the exact same idea, how did you route your tubes at the corner?

ID: hcpm3dm

The tubes from the gpu go straight back under the PSU shroud. They are connected to a small pump in front of the PSU, then from the pump go to the radiator and back to the GPU.

OK, that's definitely one of the prettiest builds I've ever seen.

15 : Anonymous2021/09/13 16:31 ID: hcphzss

This is actually such a clean and sick built I love it.

God forbid you try overclocking ram and need to access the cmos reset

ID: hcorfxn

Attached a jumper wire with momentary switch to the two pins for this purpose

ID: hcqli6n

Nice idea

Why would you not watercool the cpu?

18 : Anonymous2021/09/13 02:49 ID: hcn9tcc

Should’ve went SFF! Beautiful build though!.

No motherboard?

Cooler is bigger than the mobo

Love the black. Reminds me of a Lenovo P620 Workstation.

damn CPU cooler as an exhaust fan

Seriously, PCI-E power connector placement needs to die long time ago already.

23 : Anonymous2021/09/13 08:48 ID: hco4b03

Looks like a nuclear power station.

..where's the GPU?

ID: hcok23e

The chonky Noctua cooler ate it from breakfast. How else would it keep it's size.

25 : Anonymous2021/09/13 10:56 ID: hcod2n1

lovely. Two niggles, 1. that lead at bottom overlapping, 2. The misaligned heads on the WC ports. Other than that it looks amazing.

26 : Anonymous2021/09/13 12:22 ID: hcokwqa

Gorgeous, what PCIe power cables are those?

27 : Anonymous2021/09/13 12:49 ID: hconsvt

No cpu block?

Holy crap that’s tidy

So tidy, that I took a good minute to process the image. Amazing job!

Nice! Where is the pump or is it one thats built into the rad? Congrats, very clean.

ID: hcpm63j

Hidden underneath the PSU shroud. No reservoir, couldn’t fit underneath

bruh, that heatsink is larger than whatever itx board underneath it.

35 : Anonymous2021/09/13 21:35 ID: hcqqkil

Super clean build. I taught of doing the same thing when upgrading my rx570. The h200 is no good for anything gpu above 150w. Figured It would cost me not a lot more to just rebuild in another case and I got 2 computers instead of 1. I am rebuilding in the inwin 301. Gpu on water and cpu on air is the best layout for the h200.

Clean an very nice to look at. But seeing all that unused space I would have gone with a smaller case (
