About this deal

Another fun design consideration of the NR200 is that the side panels are swappable, so you really don't have to worry about which side they came off of, just slap them back on when done. The process of building a computer has come a long way from its humble beginning and we can thank the computer enthusiast for helping to actually make the hardware better.

I was going to use the NZXT H1 because of its towering form factor and really good CPU temperature, but the cooling on the NR200 in incredible. Not only will you choke the GPU, but you are also removing any potential for additional air flow because there is no point of installing the side radiator bracket if you have a tempered glass side panel. Effectively, Cooler Master has designed a case with a layout that aims to mimic a traditional tower PC albeit smaller but without too many limitations.

If you thought that the only fan was the preinstalled 90mm rear fan like I did you'll be pleased to find an extra 120mm CM Sickleflow fan in the accessory box with push pins and fan grill already attached! radiator support, 155mm CPU cooler height limit, ample ventilation, and 7 possible fan mounting locations provide multiple cooling options whether air or liquid-cooled. If you were going to set this up for an HTPC or living room gaming PC it could almost pass itself off as a subwoofer if placed on the floor.

TOOL-FREE PANEL REMOVAL, 360 DEGREE ACCESSIBILITY - Each external panel (and the top mounted fan) is secured with quick access pins (tool-free), while the frame itself can be fully dismantled for advanced setups requiring access from all angles. Couldn't get my 280aio to fit properly so I stuck it back where it was on the side and added more fans up top to pull the hot air out (t30s) and it's much better than the factory fans.Now a few things to keep in mind, if you are in the SFX-L position for the power supply, it will block the top front fan from having clearance, because it does interfere with that power cable. Front I/O is plain and simple just the way I like it, especially on a form factor that is often missing the header for a Type C connection anyway. Each of the open panels have mesh filters which is nice except for the back so I had to make my own.

We haven’t given out an award in a while, but the NR200 deserves the Hardware Canucks Dam Good and the Dam Good Value awards. Headset Jack (AudioMic), while the rear panel supports triple slot GPU’s and even vertical mounting (PCI riser sold separately). Plenty of cases out there feature tempered glass side panels and even more come with a plethora of RGB and while trends help sell cases there are still a good majority of builders who really don’t care about any of that. High-quality Materials: Thick, powder coated SGCC steel lasts the life time of the chassis and resists marring from transport or handling.

Two liquid cooling pump locations alongside side and bottom radiator mounting locations allow for powerful, custom water-cooled builds inside a compact enclosure.

I installed my regular Mini-ITX machine in there with a Core i5-9600K, RTX 2060 Super, SFX power supply, and I’m using the new Lian Li Galahad 240mm all-in-one that I can mount on the side. The upper fans are mounted with simple push pins, but because of that, you'll not want to try and mount a top radiator here as there will be massive component collisions.I wanna get back to air cooling and plan to swap out the CPU to a Ryzen 5800x3d and the gpu to RTX 4070 Super.
