Thanks, guess I can always test and if not send it back to scan and get a R5 or mod my current R3 ha

Wait, are you saying the motherboard tray of a Define S comes out?

You obviously have to remove the rivets but honestly it isn't a massive task.

Yeah, rivets are not hard to get out. Especially if you have a good dremel on hand or drill.

I had to drill the rivets out of the HDD bay in my Haf X to get that out. Hmmmmmm, you just gave me a better idea.

In that case, EVERY motherboard tray is removable. biggrin.gif

I have plenty of USB on the back, it's just the convenience factor I sorta miss, even though it's not a big deal.

I contacted Fractal support and they indicated they do not sell any replacement parts for the Node 202. That is somewhat odd. Just know all of the cables in that case are custom fit for that case - with the exception of the ridiculously long USB headers. That's all I wanted, the front IO panel including the headers. They said they didn't have them.

I'm not buying another Node 202 for headers.

Oh, and I'm fixing the case by replacing it with a Define Nano S. The Node 202 will probably end up in a "revisit for future project" pile in my garage or attic.

Care to share some load temps? I'm always curious about the load temps when I see crazy rad set ups.

So with my 970 at 1610mhz/8040mhz 1.3v and my 4670k bare die 4.72ghz 1.424v my fans are all on low I get 60c on the chip while under load and my gpu stays at 55c underload.

This is something a lot of us here in the North American office would like to see. You're definitely not the first to ask for a way to buy parts. Every time I see a post like this, though, I make sure all the folks at HQ do too.

I'd still like to help if I can though. What was your plan with the replacement headers? How exactly were you going to go about using the extra parts to solve the cable length problem?

This is a really helpful bit of feedback. The moment I saw this I went out to take a closer look for myself. After some research, I've got to say I agree this is an aspect of fan performance where a some extra focus on improvement could really do a look of good. I've shared my thoughts on this with the rest of the team and it's brought up some good discussion on the topic.

Just wanted to say thanks for putting this detail in view.
