SG09 / SG10 Owners Thread - Page 33

post #321 of 1566
Just got an email from Amazon saying they expect my SG10 to ship June 25-26th. I was hoping to get it from them because of free Prime shipping, but now I canceled it and went with FrozenCPU. They have a 5% off discount code: PCAPEX.

I believe Noctua makes a 92mmx12? I almost bought one for that front slot, but chose not to at the time of ordering.

*edit - I'll get pix of the cable routing in the next couple days. I was at an event this weekend. Won a Haswell, a custom painted Cooler Master case done by CMX (I think?), and a 240GB Intel 520 SSD (well, between me and my son we wont that stuff). Anyhoo, I was busier than I thought and didn't get around to opening the case for pix.

*2nd edit - someone asked me about putting a Noctua 140mm at the top fan location that I had mentioned I was going to do pre-build. I didn't get a chance to do that because I forgot to get an extra 140mm. I decided to slap the one I had on the Noctua HSF and keep the 180mm as is since it is hooked up (soldered) to a fan controller switch (high/medium/low settings only). At some point I may get another Noctua 140mm and toss it up there. It certainly specs better than the 180mm on paper for noise and flow but the 180mm on low seems to do well and is pretty quiet - I'd say the system runs pretty close to the same db as v354 I recently built for a buddy running an H80i (until those loud fans crank up of course!).

That is definitely the beauty of air cooling in that the standard fans don't typically get too much louder under load, unless you want them to. Most CLC's that I've played with are quiet when cool but run super loud when they need to.

More details from the machine since I had a chance to run it this weekend. I have an FX 8350 where all cores idle at ~8-9c and never seem to break 47-48 at load clocked to 4.6ghz (using coretemp to monitor). I'm using some old ceramique (not even ceramique 2) that I have as I forgot to get new TIM while ordering parts. That is a real conservative clock as I haven't played with it more while at a LAN event this weekend. The machine performed flawlessly with a Titan running the graphics - which seems to sit around 28c idle and ~78c under full load. I didn't clock that either as I was busier than expected at the event.

Let me know if you have any other questions. BTW - saw a BitFenix Prodigy in person at the event. That case is quite a bit bigger than I thought it would be.

Would nexus 120mm quiet fans work well with this case?

I'm using NH-D14 along with 3930k so yes it should fit no problem

I just ordered the SG09 and have a couple questions if someone can help me out.

I am planning to go with the NH-D14 cooler and was wondering about clearance issues with RAM and Case Side Fans. Are there some RAM that won't work with it and is there enough clearance to run 2 x 92mm and 1 x 120mm side case fans? This will be on the ASUS Maximus V Gene M/B with an i5 3570k.

I see there are few people running this motherboard in their SG09, can someone also tell me if there is enough clearance with that cooler and this motherboard to have both a Gigabyte GTX770 O/C GPU and a PCIE NIC (ASUS PCE-AC66 specifically).

Everything should fit.

with the D14 I had to remove the top "fins" of the Corsair Dominator ram I had picked up to go with a different build. I'd imagine anything high like that would have issues, such as the old OCZ heatpipe RAM, etc.

The 120mm fan in the front spot will depend mostly on your PSU and the way the plug is oriented. If it is similar to a Silverstone PSU plug (I think I looked at Striders most recently) then you should be fine. If like a Seasonic plug, then you will likely have issues. It can also depend on the plug location - better if more centralized on the back of the PSU and not as good if closer to an edge.

looks pretty good. You might want to read up on Haswell procs as you might be able to get what you are after with Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge and possibly save some money. HardOCP had a good review.

Purchased and received my SG10 from NCIX(USA). Still in box, but also have my Seasonic X-650, all Noctua case fans purchased(with exception of the 180mm, which I will use). Have not ordered cpu cooler yet, but will be getting the Noctua NH-U12S. Right now im leaning to the 4770k and the Asrock Z87M Extreme4 or the Asus Maximus VI Gene.
