Let’s take a look at the NR200P MAX! The new MAX is a direct descendant of the NR200P, but with a vertical GPU only layout and bundled components. Big thanks to Cooler Master for letting us check it out, and hope this arrives on the retail market quickly!

Some official specs for reference:
Dimensions (excluding legs and protrusions): 361 x 185 x 274mm, 18.3L (1mm longer than the OG)
Board support: Mini-ITX (17x18cm max space), new lower board position precludes mini-DTX.
Max GPU: 336x160x75mm
Cooler Clearance (board dependent): 67mm (I measured 62mm to my RAM latches on my Aorus board)

  1. TheGlobuleReturns says:

    Hi there, I would be so happy if you answered my question! I followed your advice to build in the NR200, and have an L12s with a side mounted fan pointed at it, with bottom fans for GPU and two top exhausts. However, I managed to snag a 3070ti at msrp recently, and failed to appreciate that the airflow would be altered due to the front and back fan on the higher end RTX 30 series cards. Should I vertically mount the gpu now? Or perhaps even get a bigger tower cooler and reverse its direction (like you did with your 4k 3080/5600x build)? To be honest, the thermals aren't that bad as it is, with the gpu reaching a max of about 78 degrees. Thanks

    Hey M&M, can you please make a ATX build in the SFF-Time N-ATX case. Particularly with watercooled parts. I have a i7-7700K under a 240mm corsair aio on a ASUS TUFF Z270, a EVGA 1080ti 120mm aio Hybrid, and a EVGA G2 850W ATX psu. If possible, I would like to move them into this slim ATX case to better fit my cramped dorm desk. I've come to despise my Corsair Crystal 570X RGB case younger (very dumb me) purchased.

  3. CF Windsurfing says:

    Appreciate the comparison to the structure of the NR200P; Jay didn't do that. My choice to buy the NR200P is probably at least 75% due to this channel, the build guide and cooling configuration comparisons. Keep it up!

  4. lewis wright says:

    Hi Thanks for the review does the AIO from the Max fit in the regular NR200P i only ask because i already have the on Air NH12A and wondering if they release the AIO later in the future if it would fit if i wanted to make the switch or if if i would have to buy the case again thanks in advance

  5. tronus98 says:

    The nr200 has that punch out card on the back to allow for vertical mount. Every time I pick up my case I have to remember not to accidentally push in on it. It's lost a corner snap but still holds it's shape, thankfully. That's my biggest gripe lol. Oh yea, they should throw you a few extra plastic panel clips.

    This MAX is sort of a strange option. I don't like the proprietary nature of it. It's not a case at that point. It's like it's a half built Apple product that needs more parts added before you can use it. What is it trying to be?

  6. Khamisi__ says:

    Much appreciated vid. I have the nr200p but I been wanting to top Mount my rad. This case would have been perfect if I could horizontally Mount the gpu and use my own parts

  7. Mirthumos says:

    It's a great layout. BUT, it's not a good deal because the color is ugly and you can only get it also with an ugly aio. I don't really mind the psu since it comes with nice sleeves. I'll wait until CM will release an all white case without the extra NONSENSE.

  8. B T says:

    Just picked up this case with the Asus ROG Strix X570-I MB and a Ryzen 9 5900X, still need to pick up Ram, M.2 and a GPU. Leaning towards the Strix 3060 Ti due to financial constraints, any recommendations or thoughts are welcome?

  9. Trey says:

    I got the same case. My spec are x2 Corsair ML120mm fans, Corsair H100i 240mm AIO, ryzen 7 5800x, Asus Rog Strix X570 ITX, Asus 3070, Corsair 32GB, 2 TB Samsung 980 Pro, and cooler master 850w Gold SFX.
