Fractal Design Node 202 Review

Introduction

Having recently reviewed the Define Nano S it's now time to cast our gaze across something even smaller from Fractal.  This time around it's the turn of the Node 202, which as you might have guessed is part of the Node series of cases.  From the off it's important to recognise that measuring just 377x82x330mm (WxHxD), and the laws of physics being what they are, a case this small is not expected to be able to accommodate custom loops, or for that matter even AIOs.  That said, it will home GPUs up to 310mm long and 47mm deep, so there's a nod at least to the hope that the 202 is not just intended to be a posh office pizza box case.

Nice review, were actually considering this case after watching J2C's build log of it, but disliked that you have the take it apart to get to the filters.
Hence why I went with the Silverstone RVZ01.Quote

Hi

I really like this case. My twins are getting to the point where they need there own pc's They don't need to overclock and a 54 to 65 watt processor and decent graphics card will do. I might end up building two new pc's shortly. And the small form factor and the fact that it resembles an XBox on the outside will add to the "Cool" factor for them.

Once again Fractal has put out a very clean and thought out case.
