VirtualBox/VMWare for some VMs (see above) or better some ESXi and virtualise everything. Yes the PSU
from Bequiet would be nice (quit and efficient) but unfortunately it has bad Cable features.

On the PSU would be one of the three (have all i need, i think):

  • Cooler Master VS-Series V450SM 450W ATX 2.31 (RS450-AMAAG1)
  • Sea Sonic G-Series G-450 450W ATX 2.3 (SSR-450RM)
  • Enermax Revolution X't 430W ATX 2.4 (ERX430AWT)

What would you think about the CPU cooler?

About the recommended PSU , you're right: the Seasonic G550 (got that one) is still good but not the quietest today... But it still is incredibly quiet compared to the SilverStone sfx, which I've just put in my node for some experiments: my rig now sounds a well-organized jet.
About the psu, as they have already told you, try to get as much sata connectors, as mounting the hard drives "back to back" can create clearance issues...
Which makes me thinking you should not get a Noctua NH-u12s: the hdd cables may to in the CPU fan. Maybe an NH-U9?

Thats a picture from pcGamer.

Or you could consider a top-flow cooler? (I know nothing about that kind of cooler tbo)

i think a lot more people should try the u9s. the smaller cooler allows for more over all airflow,with no space restrictions. its a very well made cooler.

Thanks for your feedback.

But thats the Point it don't understand:

Noctua NH-U9S (WxHxD): 95x125x95mm
Noctua NH-U12S (WxHxD): 125x158x71mm

Is the depth at this Point not the Problem? The U9s is with 95mm much "deeper" then the 71mm.
Or is the Point that i can mount him parallel? I thinkt its better for the Airflow. -> Case -> (more
pressure because of the rear fan). Or am I doing a mistake here? And i don't like top-flow cooler
at all. redface.gif

the u9s is thicker toward the rear, leaving memory clear. i have a pic of it in my neutron if you would like to see?

Ah, then you won't need ECC, but it'd still be wise to invest in a cheap UPS.

I am one of those peoples who hates Windows so I would do this, but it is a lot more work!

Unfortunately I don't know much about PSU lengths and so on, but I think the Node is limited to 160mm in length if you don't want to remove the PSU bracket.

Most good <650W PSUs aren't going to have >6 SATA connections AFAIK, but you can buy some cables online.

I couldn't find any pictures of the NH-U9S in a Node, but based on this picture of the NH-U12S it seems like a push fan will interfere with the SATA cables regardless.

Does anyone use the DEMCi Flex Corsair 400R Dust Filter for the GPU as recommended on the first page? And, if so, where can I get the filter (the provided link on the front page does not work)?

A picture would be good if it makes no effort. smile.gif

@claes The PSU is no longer a Problem. There a few great Modells. I think i will try the
Corsair RM Series RM450 450W (Full-CM with 6 x SATA 90°).

And i think the NH-U12S should fit. Some Photos in this thread looking great if i use 90° SATA and 90° SATA-Power.

remember,this is in my neutron case. but you can see the memory,and rear fan clearance. it fit my node with no issues.

Got the same question as well, plus, how do you remove the original grill+filter? I think thr filters aren't that efficient, since I have dust on my dgpu fans...

There are metal tabs on the backside of the grill, bend those out and your grill will come out.

I don't know which filter is the one referenced on the 1st page, but with a little measuring I am sure someone can figure it out. DEMCiflex 400R Filters
