I build this for a friend of mine who was looking to upgrade his second hand, 10 year old, failing computer. After spending 6+ months watching prices, and changing the configuration to their requirements, I was able to find what I believe was the best "bang-for-your-buck" build for under $1500 CAD plus shipping (the monitor was purchased after the build was complete).
The purpose of this build was accomodate heavy gaming on medium settings, along with workstation tasks such as video editing.
All the components were chosen so that they would last the life of the computer, with the exception of the GPU which will be upgraded as required.
Although the Node 202 was a great case to work with, my only regret is that I didn't find the Silverstone RVZ01B first. One of the requests was for an internal optical drive which I wasn't able to provide with this case, and ended up needing to purchase an external optical drive.
When installing the CPU cooler, I discovered that the heatsink for the M.2 slot actually encroaches on the space for the CPU cooler. I was able to mount it, however, I had to remount the fan to reposition the fan leads as the cooler's orientation made them too short.
