Frankenstein node 202

Case: Node 202
CPU: i5 8500
Mobo: ASRock Z390M-ITX/AC
RAM: 2x Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (16GB total)
Cooling: ID cooling IS-60 w/ externally mounted Noctua NF-A15
GPU: RX580
Storage: QVO 1TB SSD and cheap 500GB SSD

The story behind it is that I am getting an NCASE M1 soon and this case will be either put in the closet or used as a VPN home server in the future. I don’t work from home so this build is exclusively used for games/the occasional work stuff. My short term plans are to deshroud the RX580, and possibly add some external exhaust fans for it. Max temps for the CPU is ~65C and max temp for GPU is ~78C. I fight with Radeon software to keep the GPU under-volted as it likes to put it back to stock.
