Glad I was able to help in your decision to go for the Node 202 build! thumb.gif

Yep, mobile Node 202. It does get a bit heavy once you get everything in there but I don't really have to carry it for long. And yes, I do drive to the office so that's not a problem.

Thanks for the "good luck" wishes for our baby! smile.gif

Would love to see how your build turns out and I hope everything goes smoothly for you.

Have fun building your Node 202! thumb.gif

Hi there,

I am recalculating my budget and I just wanted to know if Corsair SFX 450 is enough to handle my planned OC ~ 4.0 - 4.2 Ghz.
Or is it better to go for 650 just in case ?

See below test found at web

CPU 6600K @4.5 Ghz uses round 142 Watts
GPU GTX 1070 not OC - 223

So in total 365

+HDD Samsung SSD 250 GB EVO 850
+CPU Fan Noctua NH-L9i Low Profile
+3case Fan - Noctua NF-F12

Is that enough ? or should I go for 500 W or more ?

Richard I am counting on you smile.gif

Hi again BR,

I wish you could count on me for that question but to tell you the truth I have no experience at all when it comes to overclocking. Never tried it before. All I know about overclocking is that you change some clocks speeds and voltages to higher than stock and test for stability in the system and temps. But other than that, I have never tried experimenting with it myself as I have never had the need for it.

So with your build, I know your trying to save with your budget, but when it comes to overclocking I always see people say you can't cheap out on your PSU and they usually say to get a higher wattage PSU with a gold rating to be safe and efficient so that you won't run into insufficient wattage or voltage problems.

Wish I could really help more but I have yet to venture into the land of overclocking smile.gif

On pcpartpicker.com there's quite a few people using the Node 202 with an i5, and some have overclocked. Maybe you can get ideas and answers from them? Just a thought.

Good luck with that BR!

Thanks again Richard.

I think 450 shoukd be sufficient but maybe just in case i will go for 600 instead.

Like jon snow i know nithing....aboyt oc but maybe it would be nice to try.

Will have a look at partpicker and see if i can find anything useful.

Thanks again.

Where r u writing from. Ur location? I cant assume based on your time zone. Is it LA?

Hi R

post #47 of 584
LoL...well I feel a bit silly. All this time I honestly thought your name was BR haha. Sorry I called you by the wrong name '^_^

Well its very nice to meet you Maciek. I have never encountered your name before, where does it originate from?

Oh, I'm from Canada BTW. But only been here for a year and a half. Lived in Australia most of my life.

KR (Kind Regards ^_^)

Hi Richard,

Maciek (read as Magic (super cool, right !?)) is Polish name, but I dont know what it origates from.

I have quick one for you

Noctua NF-F12 PWM or Noctua NF-F12 ??

Please advise as I am about to make my order.

Australia and Canada are both countries I would be more than happy to move to.

Hi Maciek! That is a super cool name! thumb.gif

I bought the PWM so that I could control the speed/RPM and automatically adjust it depending on the temperature of the CPU using the Asus program that came with the motherboard (AI Suite 3). So that when the computer is idle or just doing light tasks such as web browsing, the fans are set automatically to low RPMs so that they're barely audible. But when doing heavy tasks and temps go up, that's when the fans would automatically rev up to keep everything cooler biggrin.gif

Hope that helps.

Kind regards.

Hi Richard,

Yes. I assumed to go for PWM and I did .X3 smile.gif

I have already made my order and waiting for parts to arrive. The only thing I am missing is GPU as I want to wait few days to if MS RX 480 Gaming X is going to be available anytime soon.

Hope I manage to assembley the PC myself ^^ Once I do and you will let you know how my built turned out.


Why Is my weekend ending and you just got up ? wink.gifbiggrin.gif

Thanks again and Have a nice day. !
