    Wow! Beautiful system!

    I have my main system in a NZXT S340 Elite case, and to be quite honest, it was one of the tougher cases for me to build in. It has a nice clipping system for cable management, but there is just not a lot of room for cable routing between the motherboard tray and case side panel. I had an especially tough time trying to run a SATA cable between my 3 HDDs to the front-mount SSD (on the PSU shroud)--so much so that I broke one of the SATA adapters on the cable.

    How is the air flow in this case for cooling your GPU? I've got two 120 mm fans pulling air in the front, and two 120 mm fans ejecting air at the back & top. But I still can't keep my GTX 1070 lower than the mid 70's C when gaming.

    That GPU temp looks really good. I guess your rear exhaust fan is really helping cool the GPU. Since I'm air-cooling my CPU, and the CPU HSF is inline with the rear exhaust fan, I guess I'm not getting a lot of benefit from the rear fan as far as GPU cooling.

    Anyway, you've got a really nice system there.

    I haven't bought prebuilt since '98 but I did just see a LTT vid on NZXTs new BLD line and they look like yours, so I asked. if you want something decent right now its easier and cheaper to buy a prebuilt.

    oh i had no idea NZXT did that lol

    i imagine if they use the h200i and the x52 they'd look similar

    Very Nice Build ! I did a R1600X in a Lian Li Q10WX ..your tempered glass is much better .

    I don't miss my monolith of V1200 but like the h200i because it doesn't force you into an SFX PS .

    if you have the tube length I would recommend flipping the front rad to prevent air gurgling in the pump.

    wont fit flipped, but have never had any sounds of air moving through, according to NZXT it will run fine that way, im guessing with the drop in the tubes prior to pump helps

    change the rad fans out to the new Noctua NF-A12x25, really nice fans and the LED hides the ugly color scheme they use lol
