Does anybody happen to know how much space there is between the PCIe slot on an ITX motherboard and the side panel here? Do 2.5-ish slot coolers work? Aftermarket options like the Arctic Accelero series and Gelid Icy Vision? These are in the range of 51-54 mm thick.

I didn't actually take my GPU out to measure from the PCI slot, but from the GPU's PCB to the edge of the case the outer cover hooks into, there seems to be a little over 1.75".

Good to know, thanks. Looks like a fairly tight fit for two slots and definitely under 2" so 51+ mm would be out of the question.

If I recall correctly, a few pages ago someone tried to fit an MSI R9 390 (51 mm, ~2.5 slots), but it didn't fit.

I've got a Gigabyte G1 Gaming R9 390 in mine, and that's 42 mm (although, Gigabyte probably included the backplate in that measurement, so it might be 2-3 mm less when measured from the PCI slot).

Hello everyone !

Since a few weeks im also a proud owner of this beatiful case, a Fractal Design Node 304 in special XMG silent edition.

i pumped it up with some pretty beastly innards:

Mainboard: MSI Z97I AC
Power: Corsair CS650M
CPU: Intel I7 4790k overclocked @ 4.5Ghz watercooled by Corsair Hydro H80i GT
Ram: 16GB Klevv Neo 2400 Mhz
GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX 980ti SC+ACX+ with backplate
Storage: Samsung SSD EVO 850 500GB, Seagate SSHD 1TB


The one thing i love most about the case is that you can fit all those strong components inside, and still have a pretty small computer in comparison to other PCs with this kind of hardware.


I also made some pictures, here you go:









If you have any questions feel free to ask (:

Hi guys is this case suitable for keeping an EVGA GTX 970 FTW+ cool? Currently running it in a Silverstone FT03 mini case and have to game with the front off :-(

I would say yes, since there is a grill right where your GPU is which would allow fresh/cool air into the case. I do not have a GPU in my Node but from everything I have read in here people have had good success.

FWIW the Gigabyte G1 uses the Accelero, so if that fits an Accelero should.
