Description

Not really sure why I did this. Got the itch I suppose. My intention is just to have a PC that'll run another VR headset, but wherever I please.

Building in the node wasn't hard exactly. Just takes time, and I had to ditch the ribbon cables because they just were too much. Runs cool enough with the Cu and some Gelid. I added a couple 50mm R3s, hot glued at the top just to have some air movement. I'm honestly not sure if it helps, but they are quiet and it was easy, so it shouldn't really hurt. They're just running off of a DC splitter from the AIO header (switched to DC mode in BIOS).

Anyways, this was fun! Hope it helps for anyone that actually really wants to do a Node.

Bonus pic: the B360-i has a built in I/O shield, so instead, I managed to stab myself with a PWM fan header. New builds demand blood sacrifice.

Update 3/10: Moved to an EVGA 2070 Black, as the FE was simply too hot. I wasn't expecting great temps, but I didn't want to be thermal throttling either. Have about 10C-15C headroom with this now.

I definitely considered this case for my build. It's cool you built this little guy given you already have a full power rig. Great Job. +1

Was it worth building such a smol boi? I've been thinking about downsizing.

Nah. I mean, if you really have a reason to, yeah. I'll never not have something with extra expansion slots, not in the foreseeable future anyways, but an ITX side rig is cool and fun. Then again, I do a lot of VR, so a full size, full power rig is fitting for me.
