Beside the mobo and cpu are parts that I had in storage and I just really wanted to try out the new AMD cpu. Because of the limitation of the Fractal Design Node 202 and therefor the cooling (height) I bought the Ryzen 5 2600.

I did swap the noisy stock fan of the AMD cooler to a Noctua fan.

I had to cut some bits off so I could screw it in the heatsink.

The case fits fine in my bag, which means I'll bring it along on holiday ;)

OS SSD & everything else SSD? Just curious why you went with 2, I had thought about doing the same thing.

First is the limitation of the case, it can only do  two 2.5" drives. Second is noise and vibrations in a case (to specify) if you use a hard disk drive. And third is that I have a NAS so I do regular uploads to it, but also make backups on a separate hard disk drive.
