post #131 of 2687
Here is my build:

COOLER MASTER Elite 120 Advanced
GIGABYTE GA-H77N-WIFI
Intel i5 3570K
Noctua L9i CPU cooler
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB
EVGA GTX 650ti Boost
SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W
Kingston Hyper X SSD 120gb
1tb WD Blue HDD

I probably should have gotten a modular PSU but this unit is very shallow and allowed me to get decent cable management for airflow, certainly doesn't look clean but its good for airflow. I plan to put a good fan that can better get cool air to that secondary fan behind the HDD cage. Any recommendations?

I haven't got any completed pictures, and I don't think it's worth while getting more because we all know what the node looks like closed up.

You can check out the build log in my sig, it's pretty basic.

This system is so awesome. Great job! Only thing you can do to make it better is an SSD

I have 2 Intel 520 SSDs in it. Just not in that pic.

I'd recommend flipping your PSU so that the fan sucks hot air off of the CPU, perhaps flip your CPU noctua fan to flow upwards towards the PSU, perhaps switch the 80mm on the side to exhaust.

I've found that having a second fan after the HDD bays didn't really add much as it was just grabbing air that was already hot and pushing it further towards the CPU.

Overall great looking cable management in this case considering your parts and non-modular psu! thumb.gif

Added you to the club.
Have you tried moving the ssd down one slot and shoving all the cables above that?

Thanks for the add!

I thought of this but I left the middle blank due to trying to maximize airflow. The middle is where the bulk of the front fan is exposed. I am not sure if this matters or not. I think I may contact coolermaster and see if its possible to buy a new front bezel and then mod it. I haven't done much modding so I need a spare in case I make a mistake.

I just want to add a better front fan. i am thinking another Noctua or a scythe gentle typhoon because of the pressure going through the cage might be beneficial. And then possibly mod the front.

@ xyexz I thought that flipping the PSU might starve the CPU of air. I really don't know. I will indeed flip around the 80mm fan soon and possibly get a quieter 80mm fan or throw a resistor on this one. Thanks for the compliment on the cables. It was a slight challenge due to how stiff the cables are and of course non-modular.

@Nuzart Awesome! I just got my first SSD and I love it so far.

you need to direct your airflow

ether front as intakes and side as exhaust or vice versa

my CMelite current has a pushpull H50 intaking and a side fan as exhaust (replaced with 20mm thick ones)

Yep. I will turn my side as exhaust and report my temps back when I can. I am also going to do a bit of temp testing with the front bezel off and see what a front mod my yield me. I will report that as well.

what's the cheapest way to join this club, and which of the club cases takes full size graphics cards?
post #140 of 2687
I am partial to the SG-05 since I think it is the best balance of size and potential. I am running the same hardware that many would have in a full size ATX case but with only a minor mod to the front of my chasis. The 450w version of this case will power most if not all single GPU cards and will fit them with the mod I mentioned. There is also the CM shoebox case and fractal also makes one, those will both fit a atx PSU.
