I would appreciate a good deal on graphics, seems the most pricey after the case (no such thing as a $50 sff case) Never shopped on Craigslist though, how reliable is it?

Craigslist is really dependent on the locals that you are dealing with. I haven't had many problems personally, but I have known some people that have gotten screwed. It is mostly locality-based and the key is knowing specifically what to look for when you meet someone.

E.g. - I got screwed on a mobile phone that I bought - everything worked extremely well and the seller let me pop my SIM in and make a call. I did fail to notice the micro-usb port was smashed so it could never be efficiently charged. It could be fixed, but not something I was expecting.

Something with this build specifically my NH-D14 140mm fan is not the circular version, and there were no clips included for that fan specifically, so I had to zip-tie it to the HS. I feel a little "dirty" for having to do that, but I had the perfect sized zip ties that fed down channels of the HS, so it worked out perfectly and is very secure.

I just got SG10

The appearance and size is nice

BUT GOD DAMN IT, is a pain to fix it up and there are some design flaws..

1) I have a seasonic platinum 760w, there is no way I can mount the PSU and the side 120mm fan together. The cable will block the fan.

2) There is only 1 proper way to route those cable to PSU.. that it via that small fan opening, but sadly there is no way to remove that 80mm fan slot -.- I have a hard time squeeze all the cables in.

3) I suspect he vertical mounting of the hard disk is causing them to generate more noise.

4) IS NOT AS LIGHT AS a lian li a05FNB.

5) The CPU clearance height is not that fantastic, I barely make it with my Noctua single tower. I highly doubt an archon or new generation D14 can fit it properly.

If you absolutely need the space, buy this casing anything else, please avoid.

That's too bad about Craigslist. How about eBay?

while I agree with the Seasonic PSU plug orientation being a pain, I had no issues with the cable routing above the 80mm fan installed, and kept pretty clear of that fan's flow path. I also routed cables above, by the optical area, and also routed some by the 4-pin proc power location, as well as the front panel stuff underneath in that little slot they provide (I assume for that reason). I can try and take some better pics later.

I personally went straight SSD, so sounds like that is a bit better due to HDD orientation, and I definitely didn't have an issue fitting my NH-D14 (see my pics). I suppose that could be motherboard specific due to the placement of the socket. I have not used a a05FNB, so I unfortunately don't have that context, but I'd say it is pretty close in weight to the SG03, and it feels lighter than my v354, but that could be due to the weight being more compact and not as bulky in general.

One thing to note - this is not a Mini-ITX setup. you are stuffing a full PSU, full tower HSF, full display adapter (I assume), at least 1 HDD based on your comment, it is made of steel unfortunately (not aluminum), etc. That all said, I don't expect to be able to palm it. wink.gif Knowing what I was getting in to and planning ahead kept the build really smooth for me. Again, removing the 180mm fan during install really opens this thing up.

Anyone have any idea on when the SG10 is going to be available?

^I bought mine from sundialmicro. Others have gotten them from other sites.
post #298 of 1578
So ive got it down to ebay,amazon and newegg. just need to figure out how to ship.
It would seem Silverstone really are playing the $120 card. It should be $99 like the SG09. Charging extra for a front fascia isn't proper. This case really is full of surprises.

Cutting out the fan slot i easy enough, i would on mine but i use it to tie cables to.
