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:
https://pcpartpicker.com/b/F6fH99

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 have a 3600x with a wraith spire in the case, removed shroud in cooler and dust filter in case. Would I see a big improvement in temps with the noctua? Seems there is only one noctua that fits?

Hello guys, I've decided to downsize my i7-5775c gaming PC to make it suitable for lan parties and stuff, as such I've listed my maximus vii formula for sale and looking for a maximus vii impact to replace it, and I've decided on the FD Node 202, and, I really need to ask, which is the absolute fastest graphics card you can fit in one of these without it cooking itself to death? I'd like to use it in horizontal orientation too, with the monitor placed on top. I'm guessing it will have to be a blower style card. Would a 1080 FE or 1080Ti FE bode well, or do I need to go down to 1070/1660ti for such usecase? 1070/1660ti would feel like a bit of a waste considering the capabilities of this cpu and its magic cache™ . I imagine RTX cards and 5700XT would be out of the question?

I have a evga 1080ti ftw3 and even after hours of gaming never sees more then 68c. Im not sure about an RTX card.

Id appreciate help in upgrade to Ryzen 3000 and diagnosing a drive possibly due to overheatign caused inside the case

-Guys i got Ryzen 1600X with Cryorig C7. Thinking of going for 3700X in order to get more out of my 1080ti. Will this CPU handle things well inside this case or will i run into trouble. Also should i keep the C7 cooler or will the Wraith give better results

-Additionaly after almost 2 years my Crucial SSD turned to junk. HDtune reported 36 errors which seems its dying, and i also get POST fails and game freezes, which i googled and found drive to be a strong candidate for that. Although HDtune reports 32C temps and HWinfo no more than 34 could it be a case that SSD drive overheated and got messed up? I got a video where kingston ssd with rgb lights causes the drive to reach 60C and fails. Maybe my crucial spiked in those temps and eventually failed? Now i'm thinking of going for an m2 drive that doesnt have chassis plus it sits on the bottom of the board
