Description

This is the video link Fractal Design Case NODE 202 | Gaming Pc Build "Mini-Monster" 2016 https://youtu.be/4BZnRin1onI I picked this build solely for single soldier who lives in the barracks and easy to carry around as they go, they don't have enough space to have a full set up. Paired with 24 inch Ips monitor gtx 970 and i3 6100 is enough to run most games in high settings. Also it's wifi ready...you get the idea... I'm sorry i dont have enough pictures but you can go on the video to get some images inside the case, thanks for your time and also if you're willing to support that would be awesome :)

Specs: Cpu: Intel Skylake 6100 i3 @ 3.7ghz Mobo: Asrock h170m-itx/ac wifi included Gpu: Zotac gtx 970 Psu/case: Fractal Design Node 202 450w psu Storage: 960gb Sandisk SSD 8gb 2133 ddr4 crucial OS: Windows 10 Keyboard: chromma dimmable mechanical keyboard Mouse: Mionix Castor Xbox one Controller for Windows Speaker: JBL Pebbles 2.0 Headset: HyperX cloud 2 Monitor: Acer R240hy 78hz refresh rate

Nicely done being thrifty! Saying no to stuff you don't really need is tough when building a pc. But you seemed to make good choices with your money.

One question, are you pleased with the Node 202? Is it loud?

oh this one is my old build from last year i just posted here cause my other account was compromised..but anyway yes it was affordable and very reliable with that combination...you saw the build?

lehmkuhj 2 points 11 months ago

Yes I did, the Node 202 caught my eye when I was looking at cases. I wanted to keep things tidy and the Node 202 is the best looking case I've seen with the slim design.

Great job on the build man.

not the best build but it'll do the job for mini itx build :) would you be able to support?

lehmkuhj 1 point 11 months ago

I would like to be able to help one day, but unfortunately I don't have the funds to get my own build going.

ivannooz submitter 14 Builds 0 points 11 months ago

oh no what i meant is supporting my channel :)

The hard drive looks really nice and I was looking into getting one as it's quite a sexy hard drive, but I only have one question about the whole build.

How's the 970 holding up with the 6100? It seems like the 6100 would bottleneck the 970

EDIT: I'm stupid, I thought the FirstCom DVD Drive was a hard drive. sighs xD

ivannooz submitter 14 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

lol yeah the first com was useless i really thought it was a dvd reader as well but it was only a case..but too late couldn't send it back to seller. Did you see the build? i have some benchmarks in the end https://youtu.be/4BZnRin1onI just in case you missed it...thanks

Quick question why didn't you go with g4620 instead. You would have got a simalr performance at a lower price.

ivannooz submitter 14 Builds 2 points 11 months ago

The video link doesn't work... How did you manage to fit the Phanteks cooler featured on the fifth picture? Or did you not put in the node 202? It isn't compatible in PCPP btw

ivannooz submitter 14 Builds 1 point 11 months ago

seriously? i've fixed it already but here's the link https://youtu.be/4BZnRin1onI

ivannooz submitter 14 Builds 1 point 11 months ago
