Fractal Design Node 202 ITX Case Review

Fractal Design Node 202 Review


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.
