Silverstone Sugo SG02

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
At the end of the month I am planning to build a new SFF Sandy Bridge machine, and I planned on using the Sugo 02 (yes, the SG02-F to be exact). For cooling, modding the top cover to fit the H60 in the top drive bay looks like the way to go. However, after reading a ton of posts here and on Hardforum, it has me worried that even with the H60, there will be a cooling issue with a 2500k (I would like to OC to at least 4ghz btw) and a GTX 560ti.

I am not married to the case, but I do think it is the best looking of the micro-ATX and it would look perfect on my desk! So, can this case stay cool enough to meet my needs?

Sure it can. You said you were going to be modding it right? You might have to cut some holes and install some grills, but I think you could possibly make it work. If not, look at the Lian Li PC-Q11.

Yes, I had same case, H50 and it cooled very well - I have pictures posted of it, Ill try to find them for you topped out in the low 70's @ 4.7ghz

*edit* found it with the H50 I even managed to fit a 38mm thick fan (vs. 25mm stock) so an H60 should easily fit.

Was there room to keep the DVD drive, even with the 35mm fan? Would it be better to go with an external drive?

Also, I am going to use a Dremel to cut the hole, did you run into any trouble with your mods?

With the 35mm fan there was just enough room for the optical drive. I would recommend a Hole Saw as it will make a cleaner cut, but if you want to use a dremel that should work fine. If you went with an external drive you could probably mount push / pull configuration to lower temps even further.

The only real problem that I ran into was the assembly process, you have to install the PSU after installing the H60 (its much easier if you have a modular PSU) and then as you're putting the cover on, connect the fan to the radiator which can be a little tight, but works perfectly fine (put all the screws through the fan while on the top cover, lower it down while lining up the radiator and screw in the fan to the radiator - its actually much less complicated then it might sound )

I am going to cut the hole a bit smaller than needed with the dremel, then use a grinding bit to smooth it out and enlarge the hole. I am also going to use a Silverstone grill/filter ( http://www.frys.com/product/6201440?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG ) to finish it off. So even if I screw up a bit, I still look like a pro
