Thanks to NZXT for sponsoring today's video! Check out their new H1 Case at nzxt.co/H1Linus or get a BLD H1 PC Build at nzxt.co/H1MiniPCLinus
Linus builds a gaming PC in a case that looks kind of similar to the forthcoming Xbox Series X, the NZXT H1. It’s got an Intel 9900K and an RTX2070 Super for good measure, though 😉

I like how Linus is always patient enough to explain the entire process of installing a CPU (5:31), even though he is doing it for the thousandth time. This kind of atittude pays respect to tech newbies like me, and I've much appreciate.

all riser card depending chasseys have the same major downside of uncertain future upgradability to the PCIe4.0 Standard. especially now as we see B550 boards and next gen GPUs comming out. who wants to have an empty chassey that nobody wants on ebay in 2years standing in the shelf taking on dust.

Coming from a novice (at least by Linus's standards, I've built 2 PC's), I'd say this looks far more complicated than a typical build.

Do you still apply thermal paste before attaching the cooling system to the board?

Sure it's nice and easy, but how much "nice and easy tax" does it add? I'm planning on building my first PC soon and I'm looking at these more compact mATX/ITX builds, but they do seem tricky to get right. This case might make fitting all the parts easier, but I don't think it'll fit my budget lol.

I like how it looks. Bar the windowed side panel. They need a mesh version. Also not a fan of water loops. Air coolers only get dusty and dead fans. Water cooling can leak or have the pump die on top the other problems I mentioned.
you might find this interesting NZXT H700 PUBG LIMITED EDTION TOWER www.newegg.com/pubg-edition-nzxt-h700-pubg-atx-mid-tower/p/N82E16811146293?Description=NZXT%20H1&cm_re=NZXT_H1-_-11-146-293-_-Product&quicklink=true
my tower is different. COUGAR QBX NO GLASS TO WORRY ABOUT I HATE GLASS. PANELS However the motherboard is the very same ASUS ROG STRIX Z390-I GAMING MOTHERBOARD and the CPU is the same i9-9900K I went and F**K CORSAIR and gone with GSKILL TRIDENT ROYAL GOLD 16GB (2X8GB) 3600 MHz 16-16-16-36 RGB BLING. I did check on NEWEGG on that NXXT H1 sorry not sold there. on NZXT ONLINE STORE WOW that is price HIGH $350.00 and OUT OF STOCK However what you get for your $350.00 US DOLLARS you do get a 650W power supply. and a water cooler for the CPU. that price dose sound about right. it is a three piece set. if I had one I will get rid of the glass and go with PLEXI GLASS. PANELS

Only built my first PC like a week ago, this looks maybe a bit easier because of the pre-managed cables and gravity fit stuff that seems easy to install. However most of the issues I dealt with were just nervousness dealing with fragile parts, and dealing with little nuanced and very specific rules for each component. Things an experienced person would say "well duh" were things I was stuck trying to figure out. Other than that the only real way to learn is to get hands on and try it. Had a blast and I'm enjoying my new PC.

this is not even close to a xbox. xbox has a optical disc drive. and not a usb external one but a internal. you should used the Silverstone FT03 Mini as the case. Beautiful case and it has an internal odd.

Linus I swear watching you build tbis was so entertaining. I think I’ll stick with mid-full tower cases myself. I kinda have big hands and working in small towers is not for me. I much preferred watching you struggle with it. And the goofs at the end when you tried to boot it reminded me so much of my very first build when we went to turn it on and it wouldn’t, and I almost panicked before my friend who came to help noticed we didn’t switch the PSU on 😂 it’s the little things man
