Thermaltake H200 TG RGB – Spacious Midi Tower With Discreet RGB Lighting

System Construction in the Thermaltake Versa H200 TG RGB

Now we come to system installation. As hardware we use a AMD Ryzen 5 1400 on a MSI B350 PC Mate with 16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport LT grey DDR4-2666. The cooling of the processor overclocked to 3.8 Ghz is done by the Alpenföhn Matterhorn Pure. For the image output a GTX 1060 6GB by Gigabyte AORUS is responsible. The power supply does the non-modular Thermaltake Berlin Pro RGB 650W with RGB fan. In order to enhance the cabling optically a little bit, single sleeved cable extensions from Phanteks.

The installation of all components was done quickly. Due to the spacious interior and the pre-installed spacers, the mainboard could be installed and wired in a very short time despite the large CPU cooler. Due to the well placed cable management openings and the cable tunnel on the back, the finished system looks neat and tidy.

The hardware compatibility also speaks for the H200 TG. CPU coolers can be up to 180 millimeters high and graphics cards up to 320 millimeters long. The power supply should not exceed 160 millimeters when using the hard disk cage. If you don’t need the HDD cage, the maximum length increases to 220 millimeters. Through the cut-out in the power supply cover, radiator-fan combinations up to a total thickness of 70 mm can also be mounted in the front.

We also liked the placement of data media in this midi tower. Two 3.5″ or one 2.5″ and one 3.5″ hard disk can be installed in the HDD cage below the power supply cover. The mounting is done decoupled by four rubber rings and four special screws. If you have SSDs and want to present them, you can also mount them above the power supply cover in the corresponding SSD frame. Here the mounting is done with four conventional screws and a knurled screw for the frame itself.

The pre-installed fan with a frame width of 120 millimeters is completely black including the connection cable and rotates at a maximum of 1000 revolutions per minute. At maximum speed, the fan is easy to hear, but by no means disturbing.

Finally, we come to the temperatures that were reached in the H200 TG. During the load test, Prime95 and FurMark were executed for 15 minutes at a room temperature of 19 °C. The test was performed at a temperature of 19 °C. The temperature of the room was not too high.

CPU: 50% (950 rpm)
GPU: 50% (1700 rpm)
Housing fan: 12V
CPU: 74°C
GPU: 64°C
CPU: 50% (950 rpm)
GPU: 50% (1700 rpm)
Housing fan: 7V
CPU: 78°C
GPU: 68°C

The absence of a front fan is definitely noticeable at the final temperatures. 78°C are not critical for an overclocked CPU with air cooling, but we have already seen much better temperatures with our test system. A retrofitting of further fans should be considered, depending on the hardware. It would also have been nice if the H200 TG had ventilation slots on both sides in the front. One-sided ventilation is often too restrictive.

Lighting Options in the Thermaltake H200 TG RGB

Compared to many other RGB enclosures, the lighting of the Thermaltake H200 TG sets only light accents. Only a narrow strip at the left fan opening and the manufacturer logo itself are illuminated. The LEDs are controlled via a circuit board built into the cover and the corresponding button in the I/O panel. Adjustable modes are for example rainbow, pulsating, automatic color change or a fixed color. A digital addressing via the mainboard is unfortunately not possible. Finally we don’t want to withhold some color impressions from you.
