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.
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.
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.
