Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Inexpensive, good-looking, well thought-out ITX case While a small case should normally cost less than a large one, in practice I find that's rarely the case. Nonetheless I was pretty impressed with what £60 got me in the Node 304. The finish on the case is soft (possibly powder-coated?) rather than the cold, dull surfaces you see on most PC cases nowadays, it looks simplistic but pretty attractive especially in white and on the inside, it's surprisingly easy to work with. Assembling a high-performance build in this was little more difficult than in a mid-tower. Leaving all 6 disk bays in can make cable management rather difficult due to limited space, but since each tray pair is removable, you can leave one or two out to make life easier. Although you can fit full-size graphics cards in the box if you use a short PSU, since I didn't want to be limited by PSU choice I stuck with a short card, which you still find up to GTX970 levels of performance. Installation took a similar amount of time to a normal build, all the screws and fittings were fairly straightforward and although heavier than some of its rivals, the case still allows for a compact, lightweight and attractive system without adding much to the cost. 23 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean look! This is an awsome little case. My first MITX build and I am very pleased. The case is well built, it can fit full sized heat sinks, PSUs, and grafix cards.. I have only used air cooling so can't comment on water cooling. However do watch out. A full size modular PSU will be blocked if you have a large grafix card. Luckily this did not affect me as my PSU is not modular. I had to play with cable management instead. Also there is no space whatsoever for an optical drive. I don't have a particular need for it. An external bluray drive will do the job. And the other thing I do worry about is accidentally dropping something metallic on the case as the paint will scratch off. Other than that, very happy. 02 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mini Gaming PC Build I've had a few comments about this looking like a microwave but I think it is a great little case. Built a gaming pc with this using the following components: Asus Z87i-Pro 128gb Corsair Force Series 16gb Corsair (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9) Vengence Antec Khuler H20 920 Corsair TX650V2 Enthusiast 650W TX Intel Core i5 4670K EVGA GTX 780 Try to find the antec khuler drivers at your peril - they're on the supplied CD/DVD - as no space for CD/DVD in this case (didn't have an external option) - copy to USB to get them installed. All in it took me about an hour to put this together - added a 1tb Samsung from another pc later. Noted that some builds referenced a 600W PSU but they didn't have the 6 and 6+2 pin required for the 780. After running/playing most games for a couple of hours @ 256-x1080 the CPU temp tops out around 44 degrees and the GPU approx 60. Small, neat, quiet and minimalist - loving this case, especially as I didn't cut myself to ribbons building it! 14 November 2013

Answer: 
The manufacturer lists the following information.

Graphics cards, up to 310mm in length, when 2 HDD slots (1 HDD hanging bracket total) are removed (Graphics cards longer than 170 mm will conflict with PSUs longer than 160mm)

Answer: 
The Node 304 will fit almost any length graphics card (including up to an R9 290X, GTX980Ti etc.) with a power supply 160mm deep or less - not all units are this compact though, so bear that in mind. If you want to make life easier, look for a 'mini ITX' form factor graphics card , such as the GTX960/970 from Gigabyte - two slot coolers are fine, but the short length makes wiring things up much easier.
