EDIT: Silverstone website lists the clearance at 144.78mm. So I think I should be able to fit two of three fans on the side (middle one blocked by PSU connectors). I'm not sure if the included fan will work, but I've found a few low profile options that should just fit.


I also have a Sapphire Nitro Fury in my SG09 case, and it fits. I use two smaller fans on the side, not the 120mm slot. I think I use two 92mm Fractal fans on the side. It's been a while since I built it.
I think one of the fans are really close to touching the powercables of the GPU, but the case closes.

Good luck!

I am looking for a compact mATX case, that can support a corsair h105 (280x38mm rad + 25mm thick fans). Could I fit my cooler to an SG10?

I don't think it can sadly. Unless you skip using a graphicscard then there are no slots available for a cooler that size.

There aren't any 2x140mm fanslots in this case. frown.gif

How about the Corsair Air 240?

Thanks, eventually I went a size larger and picked a HAF XB Evo.

Hi guys! I've been lurking on here for a few days now, ever since I decided I wanted to make myself a new desktop for the first time in ages, and I needed one that wouldn't take up a lot of space in my computer room - And then found the SG10 which will hopefully do the job!
I just wanted some advice from you guys though, if you dont mind!

One of my concerns is regarding the GPU, as I have read a few places that blower cards might be better for the small confines of the SG10 case. Problem is, all the Founders edition 1070's seem to be noticeably more expensive, and not as good. Also noisier, and something I'm *trying* to do is keep the case as quiet as possible, at least for most of the time it's in use.

I wonder if there is any suggestions? I did consider having the top 180mm and rear 120mm fan as exhaust, and having the fans along the GPU (120/80/80) as intakes, but I dunno if that's overkill and also not sure if it will cause more noise than is worth it...

Thanks for any ideas, my current alternative case is the Antec ISK 600m, which is a little bigger (unfortunately) but may allow for some more cooling for components..

Hi! I built a nice gaming machine in SG10 case (i7 7700k, 16 gb RAM, 256 NVMe SSD, HDD, GTX 1070) a couple of months ago, but I does not like default air penetrator, it is noisy and does not have PWM. All my other vents are Noctua, and I like them. And they released new 200mm fan this month Noctua A20: http://noctua.at/en/products/fan/nf-a20-pwm I like it very much, but have anyone experience with 200mm vents on top? I checked it with ruler, it should fit OK (and will be screwed to noctua's 170mm holes), but I am not sure if I will have space for cables (I have CPU power cable on top of case near the vent). Had anyone experience with 200mm top cooler?
