Description

this is my main rig, as well as my lan/travel rig, which is why I chose the Node 202. I also do some light video editing and digital work, hence the 970*. I found that the Node 202 was hard to work in, due to the little amount of space for cables.(also because this was my first ITX build) But the end result was worth it.

  • should have waited for the 1070 i regret my life choices

Don't worry about the 970, luckily you got an EVGA card meaning, when the new 1070 does come out you can just the do the "step up" program and pay the difference. So long as you do it in a timely manner

Believe me when i say that my life choices are as bad as yours (i never bought something and actually properly functionned) I suggest you keep the 970 for a year and then upgrade because if the performance of the 970 is what you want, then you will find that the gtx 1060 will suit you (just a guessing since there will surely be a 1060, but i am not sure about the possibility of a gt1050-perhaps for laptops- anyway i like the fact that you used the node 202, it's and amazing case (thinking of having a node 202 as my future pc to replace my laptop)

Nice system! Yeah the 1070 pitch sounds pretty good but we will see next month if it really is that much of an improvement. The 970 is still a fantastic card. How does the AR05 work for a 6700?

Pretty good actually, I only get up to ~50C on load and it's still pretty quiet. Honestly at first i had doubts on the AR05, but it so far its really good.

Hey man I'm on the process of building in the same case, I was wondering if you could put your GPU under stress like Furmark on something for 1 hour? I just want to know what temps I'm going to get if I were to buy a similar GPU.

You should definitely install a case fan on it. I ran the unigine valley benchmark and (with the fan) the 970 held a steady 72C. without the fan, it went up to 87C or so.

I'm very Interested in making a build with the 1070 with this case for my first rig. Sorry if this is a dumb question but where do the SSDs fit? Would a HDD fit in as well? I don't see them in your pictures. Also, how hard is it to assemble all the parts in such a small form factor?

I see your CPU Cooler but I don't see your case fan. Where is that located? I was told by someone that there wasn't a case fan on this particular case, but it seems there is.
