post #281 of 1582
Damn,that's pretty much the first that doesn't fit flawlessly.
Someone needs to dual 780 this one. I wonder what happened to the "dual Titan evil masterplan" since it's now significantly more affordable with the 780

I picked up a single Titan on a hell of a good deal (cheaper than a 780 even) and don't have any clearance issues . I don't think I'll get that good of a deal again anytime soon so I won't be doing SLI for some time.

Not a problem on the drive recommendation. While I like the idea of going Blu-ray, I just don't use it that often on my computers that have one so I figure no need to spend the money on one for now. I'm sure my usage is non-standard as both machines are mostly for work.

Does anyone know if dual 120mm CLCs would be able to fit in this case?
post #284 of 1582
One of the other user's on here had a picture of an h80i on the rear 120mm location with both push/pull fans installed. There is a pic at post 19906153

*note - that is on the SG09, which is pretty much identical to the SG10 on the inside. I wanted to do an H80i but picked up the NH-D14 for cheap.

Yes. Previous owner of h80i here.

And by dual, I mean one also on the side panel.

:-P

I'm not sure I follow. Did you see the post I linked to. That was hermit's old setup I believe. do you mean that configuration in a push-pull style? Do you mean one interior and one exterior? Or do you mean something like the Thermaltake Water 2.0 that has 2 fans side-by-side, or something else entirely?

Sorry, I mean two CLCs total.

As in, one for the GPU and one for the CPU.

where do you buy stuff :O

^haha, connections and Craigslist I guess - it helps to be in the Seattle area when people decide to turn their build in another direction and just want to clear their bench. I know a bunch of people that do system builds for others and I can end up getting some great deals, especially for people that might owe me a favor here and there.

Ah, I see what you're saying. While I don't know of anyone that specifically tried that in the SG09/SG10, it could be possible. I see some possible options:
- 140mm CLC using the top fan slot (there are included brackets to convert the stock 180mm to a 140mm, though I'm not sure how stout they are as I haven't played with them yet) + 120mm CLC on the rear slot; possible issue is that the two would be bumpin' uglies with one another
- 120mm CLC on the rear slot + 120mm on the front-panel side spot; possible issues are definitely the PSU and also possible issues with the GPU if it happens to be overly long
- various mod locations such as CLCs on the outside of the case piping in; of course you'd have to get creative due to the nature of CLC's (no way to pipe in without getting the entire waterblock from the outside to the inside)

Also, one immediate downside to CLCs is that you only have so much tubing to work with. E.g. - I installed an H80i in a V354 for a friend; due to the placement of the rear/top 120mm fans, it would have been a squeeze to deal with getting the radiator in those locations. I mounted it on the front/lower 120mm spot and the tubes almost didn't make it. They also get super close to the GPU (had to "pull" them a bit with zip ties so they weren't bending the GPU in the slot) and also impeded with some of the DIMM slots when using "tall" RAM.
