Alright, so this is the first official build! This is a mostly intensive gaming platform that I decided to build after stepping up from laptop to laptop and losing so much money to the process. My goal was to create a mostly compact, quiet, efficient, and hard hitting computer to tackle anything I throw at it, today or the future.
I had originally stuffed most of the same parts into a Tesseract deep cool case, but it really didn't fit the kind of build I wanted. The moment I saw the Node 804, I fell in love. Love doesn't come without it's challenges though. Fitting two AIO cooling systems into such a compact area really challenged my ability to effectively use the space given. I really wish I could have pulled the CPU cooler around to the other chamber, like I've seen done before, but the (overkill) 32 Gigs of RAM made that a damn hard task with the h60. However, I'm really not complaining a lot.
Cooling in this little cube is admirable given the hardware I've filled it with. Although I've crammed many fans into here, along with the two AIO's, the noise level is quite tolerable at worst. The fan switch at the back of the 804 can really throw some of the fans to their max, and the noise matches that, but I usually keep it at low RPM's and find it suitable.
This little Black Box is everything I could ask for.
What is there to say that hasn't already been said?
Does the job necessary for the turbo'd 4790k
If I said the combination of a 980ti and an all in one cooler was a bad idea, I be lying so badly my pants would explode. This card is a beast, and I wish I had two.
The dual chamber design of this gorgeous and simple box is admirable, and I fully recommend it to anyone looking for a mid sized case with little compromise.
