This is a quick walkthrough on how to install the NZXT H1 3D Printed Display Bracket. Let’s get started.
Parts list via Amazon affiliate links:
- 3D Printed Display Bracket (My Etsy Shop Links 3.5″ Bracket / 5″ Bracket )
- 3.5″ LCD Display / 5″ LCD Display
- HDMI Cable
- Monoprice HDMI High Speed Cable Ultra Slim Series
- You could also probably use a 270 HDMI right angle adapter such as:
- Micro USB Cable
- Flat version
- Right angled version (Needed for the 5″ bracket version)
Note: Each HDMI cable is different, but I found that the thinner the cable the better. I struggled with my first cable that I had on hand which was quite thick and not very flexible, but switching to a thinner cable made installation a lot easier. I have included a similar HDMI cable that I used for my installation in the above Amazon referral link. The same goes for the micro USB cable, the thinner the better, but most micro USB cables are pretty small and flexible. I ended up using a flat cable that worked wonderfully and I linked a similar product above in the Amazon referral link.
First we’ll need to rearrange some of the power supply cables to make room for the LCD Display and the bracket. What I found works best is the following:
- Move the SATA PSU cable to the top position
- Adjust the PCI Express cables so they go under the 24 pin connector
- Push the 24 pin connector cables to the left
- Tuck any additional cables out of the way
Here is what it looks like after moving all the cables.
You’ll also want to route the HDMI and micro USB cables through your case however you see fit. I currently have both cables routed above the SATA drive cage. The cables are connected to the display in the top.
LCD Display Installation
Now we’ll want to install the display into the bracket. You’ll want to install the ribbon cable side first under the clip and then slightly bend the bracket and push the clip in the other side.
Before we connect the HDMI and micro USB cables you’ll want to make sure there is enough room for the bracket to be installed without force.
- Insert ball joint into ball joint connector
- Push the frame at the top and it should clip into place
If you notice that there is some pressure being applied to the bracket you’ll want to make some adjustments to the cables and try again. If everything looks good then you can remove the bracket by reversing the steps and plugging in the cables and installing the bracket. Again, it’s best if there isn’t any pressure being applied to the back of the display and bracket.
The display is plug and play, but if you are seeing a “No Signal” message, then simply restart your computer and it should work as an additional monitor.
Hope this guide helped and if you have any questions feel free to contact me either here or on Etsy. Thanks 🙂

Great guide! One question. How do you turn off the blue screen on the small monitor after shut down pc? I dont want to keep having to open the back panel to slide my psu off and on.
