SG05 Radiator Fitting

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm having trouble deciding on what CPU cooler to purchase for a i7-2600 in a SG05BB case. I would like to get the Antec Kuhler H20 620, the Corsair H60 or the Scythe Big Shuriken SCBSK-1000. I want to keep the ODD functional, there are a few games and software I need that for.

The questions if if I use any of the water cooling options will I lose the ODD? If so, is the Shuriken a good match. I would like minimal to no case modding, preferably. This is the build so far.

Silverstone SG05BB
i7-2600
ASRock H76M-ITX
ADATA 8 GB (2x4 GB)
Lite-On DVD
GTX 560Ti

Based on Miahallen's Mod any rad that extends past the dimensions of a 120mm fan (read, all of them) will block the ODD slot. The Big Shuriken won't fit on an itx with a video card as it blocks the slot.

If you mount any of the AIO coolers with the reservoirs vertical then you will block the ODD. If you have a GPU that is short enough you can place the reservoirs horizontal and if memory serves from my test fitting that will allow you to use the ODD.

I found pictures that have the radiator horizontal and also fit an ODD and SSD or HDD along with a discreate GPU. Has anyone tried or know from experience if this will work? I'm going to use a Nvidia GTX 560Ti that's 9in long. The ones I'm mentioning the ones on the bottom of the page for each link.

Will water cooling keep the CPU cooler than a Scythe SCSK-1100? On the radiator is it beneficial to replace the stock fan with a slipstream Scythe 120mm fan? You know to make have a smaller foot print.

I wouldn't use those narrow little Scythe fans on a radiator. If you had to choose a narrower fan, you could run with the Yate Loons, which would save you 5mm.

I think you can fit the H60/620 radiator horizontally and still be able to fit the the shortest 560 Ti that you can find (like this Zotac). In the pictures you linked it looks like you have to mount the radiator first to the case and then drop the case fan to down (so that the case fan sits on the bottom of the case) to fit the drive cage. Then look at the picture I posted here and you'll see that this particular 560 Ti doesn't quite reach where his case fan is. So if the radiator is just a tad thicker than the case fan, the 560 Ti should clear the radiator, and you can still have the drive cage.

since you're not going to overclock (H board and non-K chip) why not try the stock intel heatsink, it's free and you've already got it.

Make sure you really push in those push-pins hard into the mobo, so that the heatsink is tightly connected to your cpu.
Shhh!

Since I am not overclocking I do not need a third party cooler. I plan to use this as a gaming system and a VMware host to upwards of 5 VMware systems.

I have never had good experiences with stock coolers. I still would like a different cooler due to the use and the smallness of the cases. If water cooling is to much what other cooler would you recommend?

A stock cooler installed properly should be 100% sufficient at stock clocks.

If you really must waste money, look into Scythe coolers such as the Kozuti. It is super low profile and cools better than stock.
