SG09 / SG10 Owners Thread - Page 34

Hi all,

I'm planning on doing a new build with the SG10 in the next few months. I've been doing research in the meantime to figure out every aspect of the build beforehand. I figure this is especially important with a case like the SG10 where not everything will necessarily fit. I've got nearly everything figured out, with the one exception of which power supply I should use. So, I've got a question for you SG09 / SG10 owners.

After a lot of consideration I decided to go with one of Silverstone's PSU's, because even though they might not be quite as good as Corsair or some other brand, I like that (1) the power extension cable in the SG10 fits the direction of SIlverstone's PSU plugs, and (2) I would have the option of using Silverstone's PP05 short cable set, which from what I've read seems to help a lot.

Now, my only issue is which one of Silverstone's PSU's to get. My first choice would be their top of the line Strider Gold Evolution series, 750W (http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=318&area=en), but this is a 180mm wide power supply and I'm worried it won't really fit. The SG09 manual says that a 180mm model technically fits but every review of the case I've read said its important to use a slightly smaller PSU. Has anyone here used this model (or any other 180mm modular PSU) with their build? How tricky was getting the cables to fit correctly?

My other option is the Strider Plus 750W PSU, which I'm sure is a fine option but I think I'd prefer the Evolution.

i think 180mm only works if you have if fully non-modular.

Its the Strider Plus line that fits,all the way upto 850w. Technically,1000w also fits,but then that would need quad sli.

Thank you. smile.gif

Nice build, could use some changes:
- 500W PSU
- Don't go with a Velociraptor, they're noisy and pull quite a lot of heat and you don't need that, just go with a WD10EZEX which is WD's best 7200rpm drive (althrough being marketed as a Blue), I promise you that you won't be deceived (what do you have right now?) the drive is really fast and silent with it's single 1TB platter
- I would rather go with 8GB which is WAY overkill for most usages already unless you do some calculations and stuff that needs a lot of RAM
- Look at the Plextor M5S for the SSD if you can have it for the same price or less as the 840, else keep it

Thanks for the Feedback. smile.gif

- So i pick up the 500W Strider Plus Series?
.. I also kinda wanna stick with a Silverstone PSU, because of the PP05 and the front of the case. tongue.gif

- Thanks! WD10EZEX looks really good!

- I picked 16 GB RAM simply because upgrading it later will be much easier this way, silly? biggrin.gif

- Sadly it's more expensive. What is the advantage of the Plexter? Is the Samsung Pro Series worth the money?

I currently have an almost 5 years old PC from Medion (500€).
So I guess almost everything out there is better than that. biggrin.gif

@yahu: Since it is a completly new build, i guess i will use the opportunity and get the new Haswell i7 4770k.
Although I'm really not sure about spending so much money, i hope this system really lasts long. :|

Quite many people questioned about the compatibility with H80i so here's a picture of my old setup :

*

As you can see H80i can be mounted upside down no problem and does not block first PCI-e slot.

Also never get two cards with non-reference cooler in SFF tongue.gif those were two gigabyte 670s and the top card would reach 85C on stock mad.gif

Rig update and some pictures to go with.

690 -> 680 Classified
AP181 -> AP182
Additional 1TB hard drive, surely just 240GB SSD wasn't enough
Third fan on NH-D14. Thank you for Noctua for providing me with third fan mounting clip!
