Love this new case perfect rack design

Sat Sep 19, 2015 5:31 pm

I love this case it has such a nice look that you could put it anywhere upright or laying down...if I was to build a SFF I think I would go with this Fractal Design NODE 202
I would love to team up this Fractal Design NODE 202 slim Mini ITX case with a Fast i7 Skylake or Broadwell CPU or even a 4790k and a nice GTX 980 Ti or perhaps a Fury X or a Nano.

Anyone interested in looking at this very cool case here ya go with a couple links...it just might make some impulse buyers build yet another Gaming machine.

Interesting design. They should have put the filters are the outside so they can be easy to change/clean.

Too bad they didn't make it the standard 17" width for an AV stand.

Should be a neat setup for a Steam Machine.

I think it would look fine on the top of any rack. I especially like how the front USB 3.0 ports are black and not blue for looks.

I think it's a nice design, but I really wish designs like this had space for a slim slot-load Blu-Ray drive.

When I build a media center PC, I want to replace several devices, and the DVD/Blu-Ray player is one of them. I may not use that feature often, but not having it is still not an option.

It would bug the living crap out of me not being the same width. The USB port colour is pretty low on my priority of aesthetics.
