Going smaller - check my build ideas

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've be going smaller and smaller. First to a Lian Li (still for sale!) A05N and now to a Silverstone Sugo SST-SG04B-FH (found used for $60).

So, here's the build:
SST-SG04B-FH case
GIGABYTE GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-503-_-Product)
i5-2500k
2x4GB Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600 (already had) - might add another set
6870 (already had)
1x60gb ssd, 2x640gb wd blk, 1x2tb wd grn (already had)

Still haven't made up my mind for cooling.

The machine will be used mostly for Photoshop (hence the drives) and also some light gaming.

Look forward to your thoughts.

Sounds good . I really like the portability and small size of these kind of builds. If you're not going to be overclock it, then just use the stock heatsink. If you are going to be overclocking, then try to find a cheap Corsair H50. It's small and cools as well as some other bigger heatsinks.

I was really thinking of going with an H50 - bummed that I missed the great sale Best Buy had. I think a push pull (if I can squeeze it in) would work with it.
Thanks!

Oh, I'm also adding the SUGO fan (think it's called the FX121) to help exhaust.
