SG09 / SG10 Owners Thread - Page 28

post #271 of 1566
Thanks yahu,I guess $25 isn't so bad,the cheapest store ones seem to be at around $35-40 which is quite alot.
So now unless am missing something...
Better get a right angled plug and silverstones short cables for psu
Noctuas can fit (anyone use a c14?)
Best fan arrangement is lower fans as intake and top fan as exhaust?
Slot drive from eBay
Long screwdriver?

Now if I could actually buy the thing ...do you think I'd encounter problems with the Asrock Z77 Pro-M? Seems alot like V Gene in layout ...
If someone would take a pic that suggests relative size,like next to a UPS or subwoofer, I'd appreciate.

I would assume Silverstone's PSUs would work best with this thing, especially when combined with the short cables - should make things very clean. It comes with a right-angled plug built into the case (the PSU section is up front so they have an inner power cable that leads to the actual plug in the back of the case). If you see my side pic you can see that the Seasonic has the location where you plug in the power cable far offset (a lot of companies do) and the "flat part" of the power plug on the "bottom".

It looks like the Strider series of PSUs (as an example) has the "flat part" of the power plug on the "top" so that would work perfectly in this case (I would hope so! biggrin.gif).

One other thing I forgot to mention, which may be called out in other build threads on here with the SG09 - pulling off the top 180mm fan makes getting to the inside of the system much easier. The uninstall/install of that fan is super easy, so long as you don't pull the cables out of the little fan controller hooked up for that fan specifically.

Here is a pic of the machine at my work desk next to a 23" LCD in portrait mode and a 24" monitor in landscape mode:

Oh man that's a good size. Smaller than most itx cases that take similar graphics I'd say.
Very sneaky of silverstone with their proprietary shenanigans. The cables is fine,psu "just like ours or bust" is suspicious but a drive the price of the case,(sob02)seriously?
So the question becomes how heavy is the fully built case? It isn't alluminium.

oops, double post.

I don't have a specific weight, but definitely lighter than the V354 I built last. Or it could just be that the weight is more compact. I'd say similar to an SG03 I built years ago which is similar in size. The SG10 is not as tall, but a little wider and deeper.

I agree on their drives, I really didn't want to pay their prices and may have passed if forced. Non-Silverstone PSUs will work, just more of a pain for sure, and less likely to be able to use the included 120mm fan in the spot they have it mounted in (front-most side panel spot).

Haswell is looking good, do you think it is worth the wait? I'm concerned about not having much choice in parts if I do wait,and the leap in HD graphics becomes rather moot with this case.
But then I'd get to see the new gen cards and build in time for battlefield 4,my birthday,and a new school term.
Or perhaps snail buy it part by part into October ....

Thanks for the recommendation, just bought one. Was going for cheap, until I decided to just spring for a bluray drive. Now, hopefully the motherboard and case should be here this week as well smile.gif

Switched from 690 to EVGA 680 Classified. Side 120x25mm fan won't fit with the gpu. Shows how huge the card is considering even Lightning and three-slot DirectCU II cards easily fit into the case.

interesting observation, I guess your only route are scythe slim 120mm fans. But yeah, I've got a DirectCUII monster sized 3 slot GPU and the 92mmx25mm fans fit just fine, so classifieds are huge then, but still two slot, right?
Shhh!

Still two slot yeah. Not too worried about taking one fan off since card stays below 60C the whole time.
