[Official] Fractal Design Node 304 Owners Club - Page 83

post #821 of 6867
So this is my build should looks like

Core i5-3570K
ASUS P8Z77- I DELUXE
MSI GTX 770 TF 2GD5/OC GAMING
CX600M (CP-9020060-EU)
CORSAIR Vengeance Black Low Profile (2 X 4GB)
NOCTUA NH-DH14
WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLUE 1TB

My question is, is the CX600M good enough to power the GTX770+i5 ?(note : the MSI GTX 770 need two 8 pin PCIE and i can't get the small silverstone PSU in my country).

everything looks awesome.

and yes the 600 watts is more than enough power for your configuration. keep in mind, that supply is 150mm in length so if it might be a bit tight if you don't remove the mount bracket.

Anyone?

As promised: from the edge of the motherboard to the side of the case measures 37.5mm. Does this help?

Can't find an edit button drunken.gif

Your question was if the HR02 Macho will fit on the B85M.


On the Z87E the socket appears to be a little bit closer to the right (in this orientation) edge of the motherboard.:

B85M




Z87E






The HR02 Macho will require 70mm of clearance from the center of the cpu socket:




My Silver Arrow requires 77mm of clearance from the center of the cpu socket:



Considering that the Z87E's socket is closer to the edge of the motherboard and all other parameters being equal, I can conclude that since my Silver Arrow fits on my Z87E in my Node 304, your HR02 Macho will fit on your B85M in your Node 304.


Bonus

Some pointers for your build:
  • (if using a modular PSU) Plug all the PSU cables, front panel connectors and Sata cables into the motherboard before installing other hardware into the case
  • (if using a modular PSU) Route the cables through the case before installing the PSU
  • Be prepared to work in a very tiny space (that's what she said). I found myself having to screw some items in using nothing more than two fingers and a philips screwdriver bit.
  • My original build took me about 4 hours due to frequent installing, removing and reinstalling due to having to work in a small space, whereas I usually build PCs in around 30 minutes. Take your time and it will all work out.

Not a good thing.

Try the Zalman CNPS14
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118133

I purchased it for its frameless fan design and smaller size compare to other dual tower cooler. It actually does a nice job of of keeping CPU temps low as well as providing some air flow to surrounding components. Because of its frameless fan design it moves and takes air from different directions.

I have an Asus P8Z77-I mobo with a 2600k comfortably at 4.525 ghz with this particular cooler and it does a great job. My testing has not been completely objective by using toilet paper to gauge the movement of air, however I noticed the fan airflow is not completely focused between the dual tower heatsink and actually span to the surrounding components.

Completely understand where you are coming from with your statement. I've been overclocking since the days of Athlon XP and understand the importance of mosfet/vrm cooling.

I just contacted the store and all corsair CX600M are sold out mad.gif

Maybe i'll go with a non modular one, maybe TX650 v2 (160 mm, is it viable?)? Any suggestion?
And will the cabling be very difficult?

How about Seasonic G550/G650? Pretty sure will power your rig without problems with the specs youre building

im using G550 with my 2500k and R7970 lightning BE

Ive got Corsair TX750M with 3570k and gtx770. I think its more than enough, but I bought it to be 100% sure smile.gif
it fits pretty close to gpu, but there is enough of space. I have tx750m modular, after cx500 non modular. And cabling with modular psu was a little bit better. I think that tx650v has the same size, except few non modular cables for more. You can check some of photos that I have uploaded in this thread, and see how it fits.
