I have a few settings for mine at 4.4ghz with fans on turbo mode, it will bench mark at at around 65c and game in the mid to high 50's. Then with 4.2ghz setting with fans on silent mode, it is a few degrees lower.

My processor has been delidded.

Plastic cable ties runs through bottom grill holes, there's three rows of holes after installing CX430M.

A bit of update from my side....

Notice the Ripjaws and CorsairGT...

Now, since i do not have the money to do a serious mod, ill have to think of the way to hang the 3,5" HDD on the chasis rails on the top so i can remove the HDD hanger (SSD shoud go under the front cover)... The alternative is to obtain a 2,5" HDD which spins @ 7200RPM and move it under the front cover along with the SSD... AND i have to purchase the CPU cooler... hopefuly something like H90 from Corsair.

looks nice and clean. i took advantage of the recent sales on newegg and picked up another ssd. im going to run my 120 gig for boot and 240 gig for games. if i need more storage, i might move to 2.5 hdd's.

i thought about the h90 myself,but i think i'd go h75-h80 just to make sure it fits along side your vcard.

Thank you, .theMetal! smile.gif

Can't wait for the money will come. Can't wait to buy me some more threeters, and finally assemble everything. To tie cables, so they will move out of sight...

Damn, tag [offtopic] is not working. smile.gif

I asked in my last post will Nepton 140XL fit in this case... so i bought the case to get myself an answer.
It is a pretty tight fit... 140mm fans can't be mounted on rad in current setup, luckily there are also 120mm fan holes on rad...
Rad is a bit wide and GPU will also be in a tight spot... MSI GTX 770 Gaming is on its way, then we'll see.

Current specs:
CPU: Intel Pentium G3220
Cooler: CM Nepton 140XL
MBO: Asrock H81M-ITX
RAM: 2 x 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600MHz
SSD: OCZ Vertex 4 128GB
HDD: WD 2TB Green
PSU: CM Silent Pro Gold 700W
Case: FD Node 304

Hi, I'm guessing the answer is no to this question, but figured I'd ask anyway... is there space on the side of this case to fit an after market vga cooler like the Arctic Accelero Xtreme III on your video card?

Finally got my node up and running! smile.gif
I'll post more pics when I'm done because I do plan on sleeving my PSU and doing without the HDD bracket.



CPU: Intel i5-4670k
Cooler: Zalman CNPS12x
MBO: Asrock Z87E
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 OC
RAM: 2 x 4GB Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz
SSD: 240GB SanDisk Extreme II
HDD: 500GB
PSU: SilverStone Strider Plus 500W
Case: Black Node 304

I do have a question about the PSU though.
Since I plan on sleeving, would it be okay to run a 6pin PCI-E cable through the 6pin connectors on the back of my PSU even though they are labeled for SATA/IDE?

For the front usb 3.0 ports I have both the usb 3.0 and 2.0 plugs going to mobo, but if I plug in a usb 2.0 flash drive in the front windows 8 won't read it. Should I just unplug the 2.0 one?
