[Official] Fractal Design Node 304 Owners Club - Page 677

post #6761 of 7112


These are my temperatures at idle.
Hardware:
6700k, non-overclocked.
EVGA GTX 1080 FE

Cooling:
Rear: Corsair H90 with 2x Noctua NF-A14 PWM in push/pull
Front: 2x Noctua NF-A9 PWM

Mind you I'm living in Sweden and my ambient temp is around 22 C where the computer is. Hard to say if you will benefit or not, I got a good deal on the fans and never even used the ones that I got with the chassi.

EDIT:
After 30 mins of AIDA64 stress test and Unigine Heaven simultaneously.

I don't think the Noctua A9's bring enough to the game over the stock fans to be worthwhile. They're about double the stock fans CFM, but even at double that's not a whole lot....and CFM's are typically measured without obstructions, so it's always going to be less.

There really aren't any great 92mm fans, and the noctua 92mm's aren't cheap for the little performance they give. The node 304 only have 92mm fans because of form factor restrictions, if they were to put a 140mm in front, it'd be blocked by the PSU.

Only a good exhaust fan is recommended because of the size, plenty of good 140mm options, and an exhaust fan is the most important fan in the entire rig, especially in a case like the node 304. A single NFA14 140mm as an exhaust is more than enough, and cheaper than two NFA9's, and it will pull air in as an exhaust too, helping out as an intake.

My 4790k@1.2v@4.4ghz temps are 60c maximum on a warm day with a Noctua U14S cooler.

Hello

Just got a new rig today and this happened (scratchs head)
I'm sure I'm not the first one to encounter this....anyone have a work around? :/ can the psu move forward somehow?! obviously I'll need a couple 90 degree sata connectors, but do they make them the other way as well (as there are 4 x sata ports in that block)

It looks doable if the SATA connectors are shunting the proper way, you'd just have to put the PSU in after. Personally, I think that's more of an oversight on your part.....if all your SATA ports aren't on that spot, I'd just use the other ones if you don't need them all. There really is no way to adjust the PSU. That SATA configuration is irregular.

Most motherboards have SATA like this (this is the board I'm using)

Yeah, definitely an oversite on my part! Board is a Z170N Gaming 5... But all the new Gigiabyte x170N Boards are like this frown.gif

Silverstone makes SATA cables that are very thin and have very low profile plugs with cables going out to the side - they will probably fit. Link: http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=445#


BTW I just popped in here to mention that I jammed Asus 1080 Strix into my Node 304 and it fit's... barely wink.gif

You just linked the motherboard I'm using. I absolutely hate where they put the 8pin for the CPU...

Can't you get a refund and get a z170 from another brand ? Would otherwise do as others have said, trying to find angled sata cables... I don't trust those SilverStone thin sata cables, tried two of them, one was defective, and...they're uncomfortably thin for my taste.

So for the record, with a bit of fidling, its a super tight fit, but the sata connectors can be done with angle down and angle up connectors...i dont like how the bottom connector is hiting the case, but ah well..hopefully it should be alright..PSU can still be screwed in to place..

You shouldn't bend SATA cable at extreme angles. You will probably get CRC errors on that cable, don't put OS or any sensitive data on the drive connected to that cable and watch your system logs for a month or so to check if the cable works ok.
