Chassis Airflow
Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Fractal Design Node 202 Mini-ITX Computer Chassis, Horizontal/Vertical Orientation, Max.310mm GPU, USB 3.0, Black SFX is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely good looking, small and neat As long as you can squeeze all you need into this small case, then I can recommend it. My only problems were: all the screws came in one little bag with mixed lengths and threads; hard to fit bottom case fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and looks fantastic spec I7 skylake 600 watt corsair PSU asus itx mother board 16gb vengeance memory 512gb evo SSD 2 TB hybrid Seagate drive 1080 gtx evga 2x extra fans in fron of GPU Noctua air cooler this thing is so efficient and super cool, aswell as looks amazing, next to my Ps4 its not much bigger yet I'm gaming in 4k at ultra settings, I don't like big cases it puts me off pc, this is the best of both worlds, size of a console, power of a monster rig!!!! it did take a few hours to build, very tricky inside to move around cables, but once ur set its awesome!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent case! A really good case, a little hard to build in as its very small but looks very nice in both vertical and horizontal mode.
Date published: 2016-11-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning design, 1st class engineering The case for one looks incredible and I think cases like this will begin to phase out everything else now as efficient GPUs / CPUs allow for lower temps. This build was easy and everything has been carefully laid, and thought out. I do reccomend that you re route the power cable though as it stops you putting in your case fans (optional). My only warning is those that are after a cheap small form factor build as the price will creep. Sfx psu are generally between £55 and £100 dependant on wattage, the case fans which have lowered my gpu temps by 7 degrees cost £20 (be quiet case fans) and one of the only decent low profile cpu coolers under 57 mm is by noctua and cost £35. I have an i5 4670k and 970 gtx, my CPU on load is 68 ish and my GPU is 72 ish so not bad at all. All in all the case really is awesome, it sits horizontally and looks the part I now use my PC like a console and take it downstairs without any hassle.

Use of motherboard M.2 drive

If I have both 2.5" bays filled, would that obscure any significant parts of an X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI motherboard, for example preventing use of the M.2 slot for an SSD?
Asked by: W0y0jhgXnUWyayAPaeGLPQ
Filling the 2.5" drive bays will not obscure the motherboard at all. The bays are not above the motherboard.

Probably an odd one

Hi Scan, This really is an odd one, but bare with me. So imagine the case is standing vertically. On the top of the 202 there is, what looks like a plastic grill. The questions I have are: - is this grill easily detachable or would it need some heavy handed action on it - what are the dimensions of this grill? I am trying to basically see if I could mount one or two 40mm fans in there to help with air flow. Any info you could share would be appreciated. Cheers Bart
Asked by: Bart404
I would not recommend it. Case fans can be fitted but mainly underneath the video card.

Max drive dimensions

The tech spec says 2 x 2.5 bays but doesn't indicate the max vertical dimension. Will these take 3Tb, 4Tb and 5Tb drives, like the BaraCuda ones? I'm also assuming this doesn't affect any other expansion capability as the tech spec doesn't make any mention of it. Is that correct?
Asked by: W0y0jhgXnUWyayAPaeGLPQ
I fitted a 1Tb Seagate Baracuda drive and there were no problems. the larger capacity drives that you mention are the same dimensions.
