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?

Hi all,

I just bought the SG10 and what a great case it is!! I bought it after reading a lot of messages on this forum, so I want to thank you all!

I also can confirm that reversing the 180MM, so that it will be an exhaustfan, is a MUST! Because of the reversing, my gpu and m.2 drive are 12C and 11C lower in temperature .

My set up:
- SG10 (off course)
- Z270G
- 6700K @ 4,7 GHZ with Noctua NH U12S -> removed the standard NF-F12 120mm fan and replaced it with the NF-F12 Industrial 3000 version
- 16gb Kingston HyperX 2666
- Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme Edition 1080ti
- Samsung 950 pro m.2
- Seagate Barracuda 4tb
- Corsair rm750i

Fan set up:
Stock Top Silverstone 180mm, only I reversed it so it is exhaust now
Stock Rear Silverstone 120mm exhaust
Left side: 1x Noctua NF-F12 120mm, 2x Noctua NF A9x14 92mm all intake
Right side: no fan, I blocked the hole with tape, so cold air goes to the right/right rear of the case
CPU Cooler fan: NF-F12 Industrial 3000 version

While playing some heavy games for like an hour the temperatures are as follow:

GPU: 77C (idle temp is 28C) note: I can make the temp like 61C but then I have to set the gpu fanspeed @ 100percent (too loud)
M.2 drive: 48C till 52C (idle temp is 39C)
Seagate Barracuda 4 TB: 33C (idle temp 23C)
CPU: all 4 cores changes every now and then between 47C-72C but with some really heavy games sometimes I get spikes to 80! (idle temp is around 29C)

Now I've got 2 questions about this:

Question 1: How can I lower the temps in my case more while gaming? Shall I replace the Stock Rear Silverstone 120mm exhaustfan and Stock Top Silverstone 180mm exhaustfan for better fans? And for which fan, also a Noctua NF-F12 120mm fan and which 180mm are the best? (please no watercooling, I don't want that)

Question 2: to get the temperatues I just mentioned, the fans have to be speedy and therefor my case makes a lot of noise. Anybody can give me some tips of how I can get lower noise, so maybe someone can say which fan at which speed is needed to get okay temperatues while gaming? I also plan to overlock the gpu, it is now at stock settings around 1960mhz @ 77C temperature

Later this month I hope to shoot some pictures about my rig, I've seen a lot of nice cases from people in here!! Some are insane haha! biggrin.gif

Thanks in advance for the help!!! bike.gifbike.gifbike.gifbike.gifbike.gifbike.gifbike.gif (and if someone have a question for me, just shoot!)

Leidseplein, what was your CPU temperatures like before you reversed the top 180mm fan? By making it an exhaust, it likely pulls all the GPU's exhausted heat up to the CPU area and to some degrees fighting with the CPU fan for air. You may want to experiment with slowing down the 180mm fan to see if you balance the airflow a little better.

@kolayuk I am using the Noctua 200mm fan and fits ok, but I did not used any screws, theres no need for that.
@SilverStone best way for me was to leave the 180mm fan intake air. for cooling, my case is split in half, top is the cpu, ram, mb heatsink and on bottom the gpu. for the gpu air intake, I had to cut 2 x 120mm squares on bottom and use dust filters.

This is my setup and the changes I've made in order to keep it cool while gaming.

I'm using 8 Noctua fans:
1 x 200mm top fan (intake)
2 x 120mm for Corsair H80i v2
1 x 92mm for cooling the RAM
1 x 80mm (exhaust)
2 x 92mm + 1 x 120mm (exhaust) side panel

I am using Intel 7700k Kaby Lake with MSI 1080 Ti

The 92mm fan for the RAM helps cooling down while gaming, the backplate of the GPU its so hot that the RAM reach 70-80C due to the aluminium heatsink. In gaming, with fans set on "Standard" (Asus AI Suite), temps are 65-70C for CPU and 78C for the GPU; the noise is very acceptable, considering the size of the case and the GPU, 1080 Ti version.
