Had a Node 202 with 6600K, 8GB DDR4 3200, GTX 1060 3GB,. This started out as a memory upgrade.
The 3 things that really made this CPU work with this case are the Asetek cooler, PSlate custom length unsleeved cables, and losercard (from reddit) mods, which mounts the PSU higher in case to allow for a 92x25mm (vs 14mm) fan for radiator.
Took much longer to build than the node 202, but I am very pleased with the results. Haven't had much time to test temps, but all signs are positive so far. This build is for gaming only, no productivity here :)

From an Athlon XP to AMD Phenom II to i3 6100 (then used 6600k) I've always prioritized a build that fit my budget and I'm finally in a place to say F it and build exactly what I want.
