Fractal Design Node 202 Review

The Node 202 is the first slim form factor HTPC case from Fractal Design. It is compatible with Mini-ITX motherboards and SFX power supplies. Despite the very small size, it’s possible to install high-end dual-slot graphics cards and low profile coolers. Fractal Design offers this model in two different versions, with or without their own Integra 450W SFX PSU.
