How do you feel about the H210? I know it's not quite SFF, but it's still a hell of a lot smaller than the S340 Elite I am coming from. I know it's a must to use SFX to keep the GPU cooler from what i've read. But I see lots of people are moving their H210 builds into NR200P cases, so it seems there must be a reason why. I imagine thermals and size.SAMA IM02
I always saw that as the budget NCase M1(later Lian-Li SFF cases)...that's not meant as a complement
Yeah, my plan was to mod it a bit. It's $50 on sale right now. They have an acrylic front panel mod that gives you better airflow in different patterns. And using an SFX PSU is supposed to help mitigate some of the GPU choke from what Steve said on GN. At worst, I was going to maybe remove the shroud and 3d print a smaller SFX cage/shroud. So I would still need to mod, but these seem more doable than the NR200P mod.Look at pictures and the dimensions of the H210.
It's restricted to dual slot gpus.
The gpu is sandwiched against the psu shroud.
Even though there are perforations in the shroud, the air the gpu can draw through is next to non-existent. Psu, psu cables, cable management bar, drive cage(if in use), combined, all choke the crap out of a gpu.
Basically, blower, AIO/CLC, and custom loop gpu coolers will do ok in that case. The open air models, of which are the most popular, have a rough time.
I'd imagine the NR200P is more flexible with cooling options, and it being more compact than the H210 definitely makes it more attractive.
Yeah these cases are all in a weird, not SFF but also not full size. So in my case, I was basically just trying to downsize from my S340 elite which is how this build started. It was huge, and weighed a ton (like 35 lbs, I'm actually disabled with an autoimmune condition so this was a problem). The smallest/lightest case possible would be nice, but it's not the only factor as I wanted this build to look nice as well. If i wasn't set on using a glass window case showing off the GPU backplate, I could just get an actual SFF case and be done. That meshilicious looks awesome for example.How do you feel about the H210?
If you placed the Fractal-Design Nano S(or any of their itx cases), the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv itx, the Coolermaster N200(yeah the old matx legend) and they are all the same size, in fact the NZXT Manta falls into that category. They were designed to accommodate beefy hardware(that you can pick off the shelf), in effect making them as cumbersome as a beefy air cooled matx/atx build. The cases I've mentioned and the one you've said as well are meant for a certain category but in reality that isn't SFF.
SFF.net and even OCN's definition of an SFF build is something well below 20liters in volume(can't find that thread anymore sadly).
The people who made the NCase M1 are also the people behind SSUPD's Meshlicious and Meshroom S(the followup to the Meshlicious chassis) but like I've said in a previous post, you need to make tough choices with regards to how to go about with an SFF build, making compromises along the way.
Do you happen to know of any good 120mm AIO's? And do you think it would be enough to handle the 12400? I was doing some thinking and thought maybe I didn't even need a 240mm AIO for this CPU at all and I am trying cram in 240mm for nothing, thus allowing me to use much smaller cases.No. Not the MSI. Please not that. The Arctic liquid is good, but has a thicker rad, so stick with Fractal, Evga, EK, Deepcool, CoolerMaster MR or Corsair.
I have the SF600 Platinum, love that diminutive psu 👍. It's a breeze to work with those braided cables vs the ribbons.
