I will be using the Node 202 in the compact computer I plan to build and I was looking at builds made with the same case and I noticed that in the case there is only one place for case fans, and that is under the graphics card. There is no dust filter above the graphics card on this case (unless I am looking at it upside down), but rather it is below the fan, and I know that a fan should push hot air out of the case-not just into a different part of the case. I don't know if the solution is as simple as putting the graphics card in below it so the fans can blow the air out the little vent (not sure if that's possible), or if I should put the fans in so it is pulling the hot air out, or one going one way and the other going the other way.
This picture is from someone who build with the Node 202 and posted pictures. You can vaguely see the fans through the dust filter/vent, and there is no vent on the other side of the case(where the graphics card is).
