Graphics card for Silverstone Sugo SG08b [updated with pics]

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have built a nice system inside a Silverstone Sugo sg08b consisting of a Asus P8Z77-I mainboard, Intel3570 CPU, Samsung 256 gb SSD and 8 GB DDR3 RAM. I was planing on using a Asus GeForce GTX660-DC2-2GD5 2GB as GPU but it was a bit to high to fit when using the included 180 mm fan.

For now I use that card for my main desktop system but I would like to have a fast and silent GPU for the sg08b aswell. I plan on using the sg08b as a HTPC/gaming machine in my livingroom so it needs to be silent when watching movies. When I run games the noise level isn't as important. I will also take this macine to LANs and then the noise level is not an issue smile.gif

I now have two options:
1. Replace the 180mm fan with a smaller 120mm fan so that I can fit the Asus GeForce GTX660-DC2-2GD5 2GB in the case (not so fun)
2. Get another GPU that is compatible with the case.

I would like to have a graphics card with a design similair to the Asus card as the "blower" types of GPUs I have used are quite noisy.

So anyone have any recommendations on GPUs that will fit the system?

How about a GPU that has no fan on it for cooling at all but only a heatsink? I'd look into that!

You are not going to get quieter than that DirectCU II cooler unless you go passive or go with a custom loop.

Do what I did and replace the top fan with a Thermalright TY-140. It's a 140mm with 120mm mounting holes.

Take a look at this one:

It's smaller than the Asus, but is the same basic card. I personally use it in my HTPC/living room gaming machine, and it is very quiet while keeping temps very low.

Thanks for the tip about the Thermalright TY-140. Looks like the perfect fan for my setup. Found a good review about the fan here.

It supports "pulse-width modulation" so I guess I should be able to control the speed of it through bios/fan-programs?

Will order one and see if I can get my Asus GTX 660 to fit into the case. Will report back when I have done some testing.

I also have the same case and I’m planning to dismount fans from the gpu and buy good 2x 120mm fans and mount them on the side of the case (from inside of course). From my measurement they should fit I've got 2,8cm of space inside but I’ve got different card so check for yourself. You cannot get quieter active cooling than that biggrin.gif

Be sure to pick up fans with good solid pressure.

Small update.

Found a 140mm fan (included in the Phanteks PH-TC14CS cooler) that I am using while waiting for the Thermalright TY-140 to arrive. By installing that fan I could fit the Asus 660 GTX in the case although it was a bit tricky job to get the card in pace. So far the system is working great and when I get the TY-140 I will install that and post some pictures.

Interesting idea to install fans on the sidepanel to blow air onto the gpu (with passive heatsinks installed I presume). Guess you have to pay real attention in getting fans and heatsinks that fits in the space.

Now I have recieved the Thermalright TY-140 (actually it was a TY-141) and it's been mounted in the case. With this fan in place the Asus GeForce GTX660-DC2-2GD5 2GB fit perfectly into the case although it was a bit tricky to get in place. The system is very quiet and thanks to the fan supporting "pulse-width modulation" I can control both the CPU and GPU fan based on temperature. When the system is idle (or watching movies) it's extremly quiet even though I currently have it on my desk 50 cm from where I sit.

Here are some pics, more will follow when it's in place in my livingroom:


The fan has arrived. Think I like the colorscheme. Atleast it doesn't have any blinking lights on it thumb.gif







The case a bit more naked. The GTX660 covers most of the side and has about 2 cm clearance from the fans to the ventilation in the side of the chasis.


I moved the plastic protecitve plate on the PSU a bit to make sure nothing on the back of the GPU could come in contact with the metal.



The fit was tight but with the smaller fan the heatpipes on the GTX660 got enough clerance.


The connectors for reset, power etc on ASUS P8Z77-i Deluxe are a bit oddly placed so that they may interfere with some coolers on graphics cards. The Radeon 5870 with reference cooler that I tried would not fit with the connectors in place.


Cabelmanagement is a bit tricky in this case due to sometimes to long cables and other times to short cables.


I used the Phanteks PH-TC14CS cooler with good result. It leaves room for installning another fan underneath the cooler and has some clearing between it and the case fan on top.

Anyhow, hope this will help anyone trying to fit a graphcis card not using a reference cooler and I am very pleased with the result so far.

You're running the TY-141 as exhaust? Good luck with dust..

I had to flex the top brace on the GPU side of the SG08 to get mine to fit. My concern is with repeated installation or swapping of GPUs that require this maneuver, the bar's integrity might get compromised.
