hi guys! first timer here, just finished my Node 202 build:



Specs:
CPU: i7-9700k
Cooler: NH-L9i / IS-60 (still deciding which one to use)
Mobo: Asus ROG Strix Z390-i
RAM: Corsair LPX 2x8gb 3200
OS Drive: Samsung 840 Pro 256gb (my old drive)
Game Drive: ADATA SX8200 Pro 1tb
Data Drive: Seagate Firecuda 2tb
GPU: Zotac 1080Ti Mini
PSU: Corsair SF600 Gold
Case Fans: Noctua NF-F12

Full Parts List & Pics:

I'm still thinking of using the IS-60 cooler but I would have to remove the massive VRM heatsink / IO cover on my motherboard to do so. Is it safe to run those VRM's naked? I ordered a couple of copper heatsinks but not sure if these tiny things are enough to cool down the VRMs without the huge IO cover:

I think you should try Deepcool GABRIEL, replace the stock fan by a noctua a12x15 (total height 55cm), it will fit node 202. And it will fit most motherboard

thanks! will try Deepcool Gabriel if my IS-60 experiment doesn't work well - looks like there's someone selling it locally.

update: Thermal care package has arrived! Will experiment with different configurations for best thermals:

1. NH-L9i with 25mm fan
2. IS-60 with Noctua A12x15
3. 9700k Delid with Rockit Cool 89 kit + Copper IHS
4. 1080Ti Mini heatsink upgrade with Arctic Accelero Extreme 3

I'm currently using i7 3770k with ID Cooling IS-40X
would like to upgrade to 9th Gen Intel CPU

anyone tried i9 9900k with this case?
I wonder how throttled it will be with low profile cooler

also what is the best cooler for this board?
I can't find big shuriken 2 anywhere now
