Wanted to make a mini ITX gaming PC and decided to go with the Node 202 after seeing this forum and being inspired and just wanted to share my experience with it.
Fractal Design Node 202
Noctua NH-L9i Low Profile CPU Cooler
Asus Z170i Pro Gaming motherboard
Corsair SF600 - 600W psu
Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1070
3x Noctua NF-F12 120mm case fans
Initially only had a Gigabyte GTX 770 and had the stock 450W psu that comes with the Node 202. I upgraded to the GTX 1070 and it worked fine with the 450W stock psu. Decided to upgrade to the corsair SF600 psu because the stock psu had an annoying audible coil whine.
When it comes to temperatures, when I didn't have the 3 Noctua fans, I was getting temperatures of 72-75+ celsius for the CPU and for the graphics card I was in the 75-79 celsius range when under load - was playing DOOM (2016). After installing the 3x Noctua fans, when playing DOOM (2016) i was getting 48-53 celsius for the CPU and 66-69 celsius for the GPU. The extra fans helped a lot! At idle CPU is at 37-42 range and the GPU is at 33-35 range. Using Furmark set to 1080p 8x anti-aliasing the GPU went max to 67 degrees after 10 minutes of stress testing. That extra 120mm fan above the CPU which I just zipped tied helped in keeping the CPU cool. Noctua fans are awesome as they're pretty silent!
Cable management is a nightmare but that's expected with this kind of a case. Cable ties help a lot in this aspect. All in all it was a great experience. This is my second time putting a PC together. Love the size of it as I can easily carry it around everywhere with me.
Have fun building everyone!
