Description

The plate at the bottom of the MB and the height of the wraith cooler posed a challenge to other less expensive cases. However, I have the Node 804 and loved and went ahead and order the Node 304 as it was not available locally.

So far I'm completely pleased with the performance: UserBenchmarks: Game 109%, Desk 123%, * Work 120%

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - 96.4%
  • GPU: AMD RX 5700-XT - 114.1%
  • SSD: Pcie SSD 512GB - 221%
  • SSD: OCZ ARC 100 240GB - 80.2%
  • SSD: SSD 240GB - 73.7%
  • SSD: Pcie SSD 512GB - 234.3%
  • SSD: Microsoft Storage Space Device 236GB - 63.8%
  • RAM: Crucial BLS16G4D32AESB.M16FE 2x16GB - 91.7%
  • MBD: Gigabyte GA-X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI

Now its time to go through my daily workflows and see how it stands up!

More pics of the inside? Since the PSU is non-modular, I'm wondering about the cable management in that ITX form factor.

Well... that's the problem...I'm in the process of replacing the PSU because it recommended 650 and it keeps shutting down! Besides, it was a mess in there!

Yikes. Go for a EVGA 650 P2 if that's the case. Don't want you damaging your hardware by overworking the PSU.

Had a semi modular PowerSpec 650 and it was a little longer and would not fit with that gpu.

I flashed the BIOS to the lastest and or the 500 back in. According to PCPP the system is only using 419 watts.

Yes, but that's pretty much the limit for 80 Plus Bronze. You can load 80 Plus Platinum a lot more. Even a SF600 with a ATX adapter plate is better than 80 Plus Bronze.
