Sorry for reviving my thread. But what would be the best CPU cooler to put in a Sugo SG08B with a full sized nVidia GeForce 690 in it? I'm assuming the Corsair H60 would be too big, right? mellowsmiley.gif

when working with SFF, the type of cooler you can use is directly dependent on the mobo you end up getting. different brand of mobo have their CPU offset in different places so you need to get the cooler that works with that offset. for example, asrock works with AXP-140 while the asus will not work with AXP-140 and must go with a noctua instead.

so the question is what board have you decided on using?

I already bought an ASRock Z77E-ITX for this build. And I'm planning to get an nVidia GeForce 690. As for RAM, I already went ahead and bought 16GB of G.Skill Trident X DDR3 2400 (2 x 8GB) and a neat thing about those sticks, you can easily take off those tall fins.

Sorry for the absence of links, I'm on my phone.

But I'll give you +Rep when I get home for your help! smile.gif

as mentioned earlier. the asrock works with the AXP140 due to its CPU socket offset. you will not find a better air cooler that fits that mobo.

however, i'm not sure about those RAM you've picked out tho. they seem tall and may have issues. i'd recommend the samsumg RAM instead.

here is an old build that is based on an asrock board (asrock boards have their cpu off set in the same location for years so the dimensions are still valid) it gives you an idea just how much of a powerhouse you can build into a small case like the SG07/SG08.

Nice! Thanks for the info! smile.gif I think this build is going to come out good.

It's my first time I put together a Mini-ITX rig.

And I agree on the RAM, it might be too tall. But hopefully with the fins off it'll fit just right. smile.gif

I'll +Rep you when I get home!

I've been looking to see if people were able to fit a Corsair H series into a SG08B.

I've found two threads!

This is giving me ideas to put in a Corsair H60 in there. biggrin.gif

Also, on another note, does anyone know if any LGA2011 M-ITX board will come out? Is the socket too big to be plausible?

it's unlikely that a LGA2011 mITX board will come out.

as for using the H60, you'd have to remove the AP181 to fit that inside the case and that just isn't worth it. besides, a H60 will not out perform a AXP140 in that case in the 1st place. if you look at the pictures, the AP181 blows down directly onto the AXP140 so there is plenty of cooling even if you decide to leave the AXP140 fanless. just hook the AP181 onto the mobo and have the system control the fan speed automatically. if you remove the ap181, the cooling for the rest of the system suffers.(RAM, GPU, HDD, northbridge, etc.)
