Description

So I've always loved high performance SFF builds and I had my eyes on the node 202 for quite some time. The reason, because I can toss it in my backpack and go. The only things that I did not like about this case was the amount of difficulty to route cables and the limit of a cpu cooler. Cable management took a lot of time and experimenting. Also, I would like a full size gpu with a proper cpu cooler, but sacrifices have to be made with size. Maybe I'll work with the Silverstone sg13 next build and install a custom water loop to the gpu and cpu. If you're wondering how I installed an AIO liquid cooler in the case. It took some time, but I filed the hole in the frame that is used for cable routing to squeeze the pump through. Honestly you couldn't even tell the difference. FYI I got this idea from a previous builder who instead sawed the bridge of the frame to squeeze the hoses into the hole. I am very happy with this build, sound from the fans is never an issue with me, and everything is more than enough for what I actually use it for. CS:GO and LoL.

Great build!

Do you think the 120V is easier to work with than the H55 in this case?

I am not sure, but I can tell you filing down the hole for the pump was easy regardless.

Hi,

Very nice mount. :)

How is your Seidon doing with your 17 inside this "small" case ? Can you give us some temps, like Idle and "full throttle" please ?

And is it noisy ?

Regarding the Seidon, I may assume that you mostly use it on Vertical stand ( the node 202 ), no ?

Thanks

Hello,

I am inspired to do the same with my node 202 could you possibly take some more pictures so I can get a clearer idea of what you did? Or I could just get a hacksaw and cut the frame lol
