Back in July 2017, I embarked on a challenge to do a custom water cooled loop inside the Fractal Node 202, dubbed Project BBIRD. There were a lot of parts of the build I knew I could do better, including panelling work, window and the water cooling loop itself.
More than 1 year later, DeeBee Xtreme aims to take the Node 202 build a step further. The build was indeed challenging as there is limited space within the node 202. The GPU compartment still has an extra 20-30mm to spare, which means the newer RTX 2080Ti and EK RTX 2080/Ti blocks with built in RGB can fit no problem for potential future upgrades.
Overall, I am very happy with the progress of successfully implementing a complete full watercooling loop inside the Node 202 case. This was a challenge well worth it.
