Those small fans, throws hot air out or blows cold air to case ?

correct =). they don't make a huge difference, maybe 1-2C on the cpu, but wanted to try it out anyway. Others have had greater temp differences: reddit post
This is brilliant. LOL @ the little noctua fans but it fits and it keeps it slim so I love it
This is a damn brilliant build for a Node 202. The extra side fans are genius for you to have thought of. Well done.
Wish I had thought of it! Credit goes to reddit u/diabetic_debate > build post
Would love to see what temperatures you were able to achieve!
Any issues getting the Reeven Brontes to fit on the board? Hearing about a really tight fit.
Why not 2070 super?
I strongly considered it, but went with the 2080 for 2 reasons: higher performing, and was able to get a used evga 2080 (can return if anything was wrong with it) for roughly the same cost as a 2070 super (+$50, for +10fps was worth it to me). No issues so far, and can still OC
