Frequently asked questions
- What is the maximum motherboard form factor?
Mini-ITX, Mini-DTX (with the 140 mm case above the motherboard removed)
- What PSUs will fit in this case?
SFX and SFX-L
- Is the Ridge PCIe 4.0 riser card compatible with the Node 202?
The two are not compatible due to different design, size and mounting location of the Riser. We do not currently have any plans on making a PCIe 4.0 riser for the Node 202.
- I am having issues running the GPU not working in PCI-E 4.0 mode. What could be the issue?
Shortly after launching the Ridge, we discovered some users having issues running their GPU properly. We found that there were some incompatibility issues with the riser and certain component setups. You can read more about it here. We have since made a revised riser which we send out to any users experiencing issues, and can be requested by sending an E-mail to email@example.com.
Newer Ridge cases will have the revised riser included from purchase. To check if yours is the new one or old, the easiest way is checking the product SKU inside the left side panel of the case, or on the brown box it came in. The affected cases are either named FD-C-RID1N-01 or FD-C-RID1N-02, while the new ones with the revised riser included is named FD-C-RID1N-11 and FD-C-RID1N-12. It is also possible to see on the Riser itself as the old cards doesn't have Fractal printed on the left side of it, while the new one does. Reference below:
