I just picked up a Node 304, and I'm building a replacement system for my old AMD Phenom II system that was in a Rosewill Destroyer this weekend. Saturday Drive to Cleveland, OH Micro Center and MELT FTW! thumb.gif

Components:
Fractal Design Node 304
Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI
Intel Core i7-3770k
Silverstone NT-06 PRO Cooler
XFX Double D Radeon HD 7870 Black Edition
Patriot Gamer 2 DDR3-1600 2x4GB (low-profile throwaways, which will be replaced with something matching my black/white/red color scheme, like Corsair Vengeance DIMMs)
Silverstone ST45SF-G 450W fully-modular PSU
Silverstone PP05 short cable set
Crucial M4 256GB SSD
Western Digital Scorpio Black 750GB 2.5" HDD

Planned Additions:
Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition for the NT-06
Corsair Vengeane or similar low-profile RAM that goes with the color scheme
Lutro0 Customs sleeving for the Silverstone PP05 kit

I've thought about doing a build log, as I've not seen a really identical configuration to mine yet. For starters, I haven't seen many reviews of the cooler I chose, and spent a good bit of time on the phone with Silverstone and Gigabyte to verify compatibility. I'm going for a more balanced approach between super-high-end overclocked and relatively quiet, energy-efficient in my build. If anybody's curious, it's going to be used primarily for gaming and music recording with lots of tracking, VST plugins and instrument/amplifier modeling for my solo music projects as well as my metal band, SARSEN.

Evga GeForce GTX 660 (First water cooled build so going with a cheap graphics card for now. Going to purchase the Evga 680 or the Evga 680 Hyrdo after a few months)
Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
Lamptron FC-6
Corsair AX760 (Yes, i know it is overkill but i like the red/black/white colors lol.).

Honestly for the same price I would get 8GB of memory which is overkill already for all common uses, a Rosewill Capstone 550W-M, and there you could go right off with an HD 7950 which is a monster in terms of performance.

If you like the red color scheme on the PSU, you can always use a custom sticker, checkout this thread:

Thanks, I'm aware, and normally this would be a moderate concern for me. With this build, though, I'm not likely to overclock past 4.0-4.2, since heat and noise are likely going to be a factor. smile.gif

That'll make a great motherboard then. smile.gif

Thanks originally I got the non windowed version but the stuff I filled it with was too good not to show off xD

you do have to keep it clean though especially if you have lighting otherwise it shows all the marks on the window aha
