No worries, happy to share.
Two?! Now, I'm drooling, haha.
Indeed, it's a steep price. I will have the say that build quality is superb and cleverly designed. You won't notice unless see one face to face. Node 202 is a fantastic case for the price. My friends have built with that case and love it. It sounds like you have a fun build, soon. Yeah, I can't imagine a great resell value for the NCase M1 unless you are specifically commissioned to build with it for a client. It's a shame the case is not widely available but it nice to it take off since their KickStarter.
Yeah... well, having the case with the monitor on top, will save me space on my desk, free of "stuff" around. Yeah I need two of those hard drives, I have a lot of stuff to save, besides **** of course ahaha. I travel a lot and the node 202 will give me the option to carrying it on a bag or something, will be easier due to its size, even at the botton of a baggage. Right now, my PC is this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/gn7WGX
I hate all that space wasted, PCI slots, ram slots, hard drive cages, a huge PSU for nothing, etc.. you know what I mean... I want exactly what I need, one PCI, two ram slots, etc..
Thanks for all your help my friend, I appreciate it. You know what, maybe I will buy three of the hard drives and an enclosure, to have one of them to make copies periodically of my most important files. Or a 3.5" for this purpose, I don't know yet...
Ah, if this system is portable I have care tips for your drives. I recommend monitoring the drives' health or replacing them every 2-3 years. Any laptop I use with HDD's will die, eventually. I got lucky with 5 years but, man, it was slowwww and I backed it all up a week before it died.
Nice. I am the same, way: use all the space :)
Hard choice, for sure. That 10TB drive is tempting, too ;)
Yeah, man. Good luck!
Last question. Which one of these motherboards do you like most:
I hate the location of the USB 3.0 on the gigabyte, damn... but it has better audio and USB-C.
How is your ASRock motherboard so far?.
I actually have that ASRock Mobo. It is quite a little beast for OC'ing and it's not even ASRock's flagship varient!
The Gigabyte isn't bad at all but the ASRock components are better. The Gigabyte mobo doesn't even have a heat sink over its MosFet's on the VRM. Yeah, USB placements are funky.
Bottomline: Go for the ASRock.
the type connector is nice, but not worth for me yet. It will take some time for that be more applicable, unless you personally benefit from it now.
How is the sound on your motherboard, is good enough to play games?. Do you have 5 speakers or something?, I have read that the audio of ASRock is just stereo.
