About this deal

The chassis frame is wrapped in a sleek and tasteful powder-coated steel chassis that makes a statement on a desk. Open ventilation and multiple fan mounts ensure proper and consistent airflow, while large mounts keep the front of the case clear of obstructions. Once the top is removed you have full access to build from just about any angle so you're not going to find yourself frustrated like in other cases where you have trouble reaching that pesky 8-pin EPS connection. They’re still more affordable than boutique options, but they don’t balance out the sticker shock of a mini-ITX motherboard the way the NR200 does did.

Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. There is no fan hub which means you will probably be using fan splitters which have to go behind the GPU in the basement because PWM fan splitters are too thick to fit in the right side panel. It it doesn't have front USB-C but I don't have any USB-C devices as of right now anyway so not really affected. Here are my nitpicks: It's a bit of a tight squeeze in the right side if you want to route cables there.All external panels, including the tempered glass and top mounted fans are secured with pins for easy removal, facilitating quick access to the internals without the use of tools. 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!

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. PCPartPicker may receive compensation for purchases made at participating retailers linked on this site. Every feature in the NR200 is thoughtfully laid out in an 18-liter space to maximise component compatibility, thermal efficiency, and ease of assembly.The only limitation here is that you cannot install the side fan radiator bracket if your CPU tower clearance is higher than 155mm. 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. Ample clearance for long, triple-slot graphics cards means no sacrifices are needed in GPU power to take advantage of small form factor sizing. 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. On the motherboard side of the case, you'll see a removable fan mounting system that allows you to increase intake air from that side by adding up to a pair of 140mm fans or a 240mm radiator for an AIO for your CPU.

Maybe in winter when the system is under full load is going to be a nice little heater, but something to keep in mind still. The one that really cool thing about the top panel and the included fan or fans, depending on which case you get, is that not only do they have a finger guard so no cables will be eaten by those blades, but the actual mount is also tool-less so you can simply push them into the rubber pegs and they stay securely in place. 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.Screws are used to secure the frame parts to allow advanced disassembly and multiple angles to easily work inside of the chassis. SFF builds became much more popular in large part to the NR200, and it remained one of my top recommendations when friends asked me for mini-ITX case suggestions.
