SG02 Fans/Mod accessories

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I finally decided on my new mATX case and I was wondering what kind of fans (80mm) you guys recommend to put in place of either the stock fan or the 2 extra fan slots. I'm also looking for recommendations on any good value (not too expensive) cpu coolers that fit inside the case.

I am also looking at the fx121 cross flow fan since it seems to get pretty good reviews and seems to work well with the SG series according to reviews. Do you guys have any opinions on it?

I know some people cut holes/dremel in the top for more ventilation/fans but since I don't have any access or knowledge on how to do that I probably will pass (unless someone knows of a shop that does that kind of things).

I'm planning on runnings i5 2500k processor (probably light overclock) with something like a GTX 560 ti (probably only one for now). Thanks for all the help!

nice ya I was going to get that case but the white one

anyways im using 3 of these fans in my case. They are not too loud and move an ok amount of air. for the cpu cooler check out this with a reg 120mm fan that has good pressure turned up to exhaust out the PSU. or this one with a reg 120x120x25mm fan it is a tight squeeze but you can get a 120x120x20mm yate loon and it will fit better. once again turn the fan up and it will exhaust out the psu. I am actually using the geminii s to cool my phenom 955 quad core and it works great.

lastly the biggest drawback of the SG02 is the airflow, so plan accordingly and keep your wires organized

It's a little expensive, but I have one in my SG04B-FH. It's especially nice in these smaller cases because it helps exhaust. Just be warned, they have a different "exhaust note" than standard fans. I think this is why some reviewers call them loud. If I had to define it, it's a bit whiny. But it does help.
