But for minimal use I think the K400 will be plenty.

NVM... The K830 is on sale for 79 and I had some coupons. Got it shipped with taxes for 70 so not bad.

Pro tip for the K400, which I'm assuming also works on the K830 : You can disable tap-to-click on the touchpad.

Just hold the "FN" key and click the left-mouse button under the trackpad (not the left-mouse button at the top left of the keyboard). Then enjoy NOT accidentally triggering clicks constantly.

I just bought the k400 plus. The touch is a little iffy, but overall I'm happy with it.

Hey guys,
I own a fractal design node 304 and I have always had an idea that my case wasn't properly cooled. I ran Unigine Heaven benchmark and reached
temperatures of around 75 degrees Celsius. That's kinda weird because I've got the 2 stock front fans, a Noctua NH-U12S processor cooler with the included fan and in the back I run a
Noctua NF-A15 PWM 140 mm fan. My specifications are: i7 4770, MSI gtx 760, 8gb ddr3. Those aren't the most heatproducing components right?

Is the 75C for your CPU or GPU? What's your idle temps on both components? How many HDDs do you have in the cages?

Resistance is what's going to make the big difference in cooling efficiency, just because you have a lot of fans, doesn't mean your components will stay cool. If the air has to got around several different objects before it exits the case then pockets of hotter air will be created driving up the air temp within the case.

I got 75 degrees celcius for my gpu. And I use 1 drive cage.
I think the drivecages from the nod 304 are bulky as hell. are there any other modding solutions like you bend 1 drivecage?

What kind of drives you rocking?

1 SSD + 1 HDD = You can mount the SSD up front under the front bezel and the HDD just double side tape to the top of the PSU assuming you are not pushing the PSU too hard causing unwanted heat on the drive...

Just an example.

Did some quick searches and max temp for your card is 97 C, so you are well below the threshold. I don't think your temps are bad and probably not something you need to worry about.

Hello sfbayboater,

would it be possible to use two of the three HDD cages in combination with the Impact VII and Silver Arrow ITX?
Is there enough room for the required SATA cables?
I've already bought the Node 304 and the Impact VII. Would it be possible for you to measure the space between the Silver Arrow ITX and the HDD-Rail!?
Thank you in advance!

Best regards,
Stockinger!
