As a follow up to upgrading my HTPC from this - https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/8Hm8TW - to this - https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/KMgwrH the big question is what to do with the parts from the first build?
Transplant it to another case and make a secondary desktop of course!
The case I chose was the NZXT H200. I opted for the non-"intelligent" one. I took a small gamble and hoped that the Dark Rock 4 would fit in the case and luckily it did. The spacing was really tight both between the RAM and the cooler as well as between the cooler and the tempered glass panel. The included pictures should give an idea of how close it was.
Also given how bad the cable management was done in the HTPC, I wanted to at least show some competency with a case that has significantly more space to work with and I'm happy with the results.
Also acoustics are phenomenal with this PC. It is incredibly quiet even when gaming. To the point where, I want to rip my Main PC apart to figure out why it sounds so much louder than this one.
