About this deal

With this new release they have created some serious competition for the Ncase M1 and the entire experience here has been almost flawless. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. You'll not have to be nearly as concerned with thermal limitations in this case as you would be in something like the Node 202 and it is smaller still than the H210i we recently reviewed while having similar, if not better compatibility and it was much easier to build in the NR200 over both.

The inclusion of water cooling and air cooling provisions ensures that coolers can accept all the airflow necessary to run at peak performance. Oh yeah, you can fit two more 120mm fans in the bottom, so it's possible to stuff 7 case fans into this tiny thing!They have been able to keep the size of the chassis down to 18 liters, which means you can fit more components inside and still have a smaller footprint on your desk or workbench. Combined with 3-slot GPU compatibility and custom watercooling pump mounts, the NR200 has few restrictions for even some of the hottest running hardware.

I’ve inquired further about the reasons for the retirement, but for now, it appears that the NR200’s about to become a collector’s item.

The components used in this build were originally used in a Node 202 build which is why we stuck with the low profile cooler. This also gives you an opportunity to hide all your cable mess, because the graphics card depending on its length will cover both the motherboard and the power supply, and the exiting cables from the power supply will not interfere or bump into GPU as it would if your graphics card was just mounted directly into the motherboard. High-quality Materials: Thick, powder coated SGCC steel lasts the life time of the chassis and resists marring from transport or handling. The NR200 is just shy of the overall size of 20L just squeezing it into that Small Form Factor segment while allowing for a wide range of cooling options and graphics card configurations.Alaina Yee is PCWorld's resident bargain hunter—when she's not covering software, PC building, and more, she's scouring for the best tech deals.

And by the way, they both come with a 92mm fan that you can mount at the back in case you are not using the vertical PCIe slots. When the system was finally fully assembled I wasn’t frustrated dealing with all the cables, because the case is fairly large and you can get to all the places. This was helped by the fact that the radiator is on a bracket, so you can simply remove it, do all your cables, and put it back in place. If we remove all the side panels you can see that the barrier for air flow isn’t that significant, which is great. Open ventilation and multiple fan mounts bring airflow where it’s needed, while generous watercooling and aircooling clearances allow the fitment of coolers that can take advantage of all the airflow.The case, while small, is capable of holding the largest modern graphics cards out there along with up to a 280mm liquid-cooling radiator. With each passing year, publishers and console manufacturers alike have increasingly emphasised the long-term importance of game subscription services.

Thick, powder coated SGCC steel keeps the fit and finish of the chassis clean and durable even with harsh traveling conditions. That is really the only advantage of getting the NR200P, aside from the tempered glass side panel and the second 120mm top exhaust fan, because the regular NR200 just comes with a single top exhaust.The Cooler Master NR200 is a small form factor chassis that combines space-saving efficiency with cooling capabilities normally found on much larger ATX cases. Thermalright Phantom Spirit 120SE for 40 Euro, Thermalright Frost Spirit 140V3 for 35 Euro, Noctua C14S for 65 Euro, or Noctua U12A for 80 Euro? The writing was on the wall, but the news doesn’t go down any easier: Cooler Master has confirmed the NR200, the mini-ITX case that launched numerous pandemic PC builds, will soon be no more. However, vertical GPU mounting is really where the NR200P shines because we have a very short riser cable included that you can use when you go with a vertical GPU. And then putting it to exhaust was a big mistake, since as you can see the GPU temperature really just maxed out there.
