inacoma, just don't plug them in.

where's the fun in that, mate? This is OCN after all tongue.gif ...but, honestly hadn't dawned on me to do that--too busy finding complex solutions to simple problems. kookoo.gifbiggrin.gif

...on a separate note I really need to update my rig sigs and post my build pics, brb...

Edit: Ok, here's my take on the SG09. I had an AMD chip from an old store bought HP, the chip is Phenom II x4 840T. I was able to unlock two extra cores so I have Phenom II x6 running @ 3.2GHz. I know this chip can go higher, but I'm limited by the board. Still some mods in the works to get it up higher, but so far happy with the performance. Also was having issues with the last two shots, for some reason OCN wouldn't let me edit my own pictures.

I'm actually one of the few who actually likes the SG09 front face, (maybe cause it's in a shelf under my desk and I don't get to see it often smile.gif )

So much win in the case, I can't name them all (dust filters, etc etc etc.)

Yeah, we always consider users' suggestions in forums, it's fun to interact directly with people who use our products!

Every system configuration is different, so our default configuration may not work optimally for everyone. But all in all, the SG09 should perform great no matter what direction you take it.

Don't know if you like the new Audi's grille look, because it had a styling influence on the engineers who worked on the SG09.

The newer three speed AP181 will be available initially on newer cases first. We don't have a schedule on when it will be available individually though.

Like a resistor or something you plug between the header pins and the LED power connectors.

Granted this is a the same gripe I have with my 300R, so not a direct knock. But this case for it's size does have one of the brightest LED lights I've seen. tongue.gif

Yeah, we are definitely thinking of maybe implementing adjustable LED brightness switch like we have done in the HTPC cases such as GD07 and GD08.

I have an SG09 and love it - I also like the appearance of the front grill. Like others, I have found that the top fan works better as exhaust - flipping the fan has made a difference of over 10 degrees for my GPU. I also like the 140mm mounting brackets, and I now use a 140mm fan on top instead, since it is quieter.

A couple of other suggestions to Silverstone for future improvements - ditch the slim form optical drive bay since I doubt many use it, move the PSU up a centimetre and put a 120mm fan intake below it on the front grille. Also, include a built in 3 position fan controller that will operate all the fans in the case (like the one in my NZXT Phantom 410 which can control 7 fans).

in case anyone hadn't noticed, you can fit a fan controller in the space between the PSU and the 180mm fan, i'm considering putting one in, but i'm not going to need fans when i've finished the volenti

What 140mm fan are you using? 180mm air penetrator is dead quiet under low profile but doesn't seem to move any air at all at 700 RPM.

The 180mm fan was too noisy for me, even at 700rpm. I am using a spare Yate Loon undervolted to 5v, so running at about 500-600rpm. It doesn't move much air but I get decent temps and it is silent.

Are you guys able to insert/eject discs from your slot drive smoothly?

The felt that is along the opening seems to be too restricting -- discs are rubbing and getting scratched.

Thinking about cutting the felt back or removing it completely.

I am using a 'Panasonic UJ265' 12.7mm drive.

Terrific idea, I know the Lian Li V354 which is a SFF m-atx case comes with a built in fan controller.

So the SG09 with a built in fan controller for all the other fans would be a terrific idea and would add a lot more win to the case.
Shhh!
