Just exactly what would you regard appropriate as a "first post"? I'm hoping the Haswell E will turn out better temps. There are rumors of a return to soldering the heat spreader but so far I'm not seeing a whole lot of promise in the thermal categories. Hey, it's a great looking rig for those who are into that kind of thing. I salute anyone who makes an effort to improve upon anything watercooled or liquid cooled. thumb.gif

OK, makes sense smile.gif not so odd then.. I hope you will forgive my "odd" welcome then smile.gif
But that is experience from your own chip only, right?
Haswell in general do not have the problems you are having, and overclockers would take care of the heat problem by delidding if they chose this chip.
Im not saying that it is the BEST chip for overclocking, but I count Haswell as a decent, if not good OC choice.

My guess would be that Haswell-E will be soldered just as Ivy-E and Sandy-E did. The die is much bigger and allows for easier soldering (or so I heard)

No worries, Canada is the BBQ capital of the world so we love our thermals regardless. biggrin.gif To be fair I must agree that this is my personal experience with the Haswell 4770K chip and I've often wondered if the 4670 wouldn't have been a better choice for my purposes; but to be even more fair I wouldn't be exaggerating in saying that my experience has also been that of thousands of Haswell users. I won't even attempt to overclock this chip anymore as stability issues sky rocket at the first hint of overclocking on the XMP. I realize I could always delid the thing and I've seen some splendid results with those industrious (and gutsy) individuals who delidded theirs. WTG Delidders! thumb.gif I almost did the same but changed my mind when it occurred to me that I'd be giving this Z87 SaberGoof to the wife in a year's time anyway so why bother risking the warranty when she only games online anyway? As for myself, I'm not really a hard core gamer but more of an enthusiast. So what I suppose I'm really saying is that it depends what you're after in a chip and I can hardly wait for the 2011-3 to make her debut. Those 10 SATA ports and 40 express lanes have me salivating every time I think of it. Yup. I'm already bored with 4770K. Perhaps a better motherboard would have kept me better occupied but with the prospect of a REAL motherboard on the horizon I think I can wait a little longer... (I hope).

Although I've seen builds with an ATX PSU in the SG05, it would be a true challenge to fit one with my current iterations, especially the location of the reservoir. I can probably build my own res that can fit in the open section towards thee front and free up space to fit an ATX PSU. As far as height is concerned it should clear the Swiftech Apogee HD II.

Fortunately for us a Silverstone SFX 600 Watt is in the horizon that will enable some really strong ITX builds with overclocking in mind: SOURCE
Updates shall come soon enough thumb.gif

Thanks for the reply. I am keen on putting an ATX PSU in because Seasonic makes a great 520W fanless powersupply! I can only see benefits going with fanless for a watercooled build.

Another question for you! If I don't want to go with the pre-filled route (Corsair H80i), and do what you're doing, but with a different type of reservoir, how do you think that'll do? Any suggestions for a reservoir to work with a ATX PSU?

Any particular reasons or negatives to using a radiator/reservoir combo? Your expertise and replies are much appreciated!

Well then, lets make some magic happen for you. If you insist for an ATX PSU you can do one of two things rated easiest to challenging and the third option if you just give up (That won't happen here right? wink.gif )

OPTION 1

Swiftech will be releasing a 120-140mm Radiator, Pump, Reservoir custom kit very soon called the h220X. The advantage of this kit is the focus on the enthusiast 'future proofing' our builds for prospective upgrades such as adding a GPU block, etc. etc. (All High End Parts) Another thing I like about this particular kit is the smaller reservoir which would be perfect for an SG05. Although you'll be limited to using just one fan it will give you the space for a compact ATX PSU.





More information on the new Swiftech gear:


OPTION 2

If you're comfortable with a dremel you can source a bracket (easiest) or build your own (fun!) to cut the PSU section of the SG05 larger and extend it out similar to the Cooler Master Elite 110, 120, 130. I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to contact a vendor or Cooler Master themselves for a "replacement" PSU extension bracket. Bolt that piece onto the SG05 and you're golden. I definitely will be cheering you on if you go this route with an ATX PSU thumb.gif

Here are some reference images courtesy of Cooler Master:





OPTION 3

Get a Silverstone SG08 or Cooler Master Elite 110, 120, 130 if you just can't find a way to get all the good stuff into the SG05. And believe me, I know you can find a way before going this really really really really easy route...)

Only just found this build log, spent like an hour reading through the whole thing. What can I say, I'm impressed.

Also, I was going to build essentially the same thing in a couple months. This has really helped me out, thankyou. +rep thumb.gif

I built an SG05 a few months ago and when I read you were trying to do WC in it, I thought good luck! I managed to fit a full ATX PSU in there but not much else. It is a fun case to build in though!

LOL! Yea i was thinking the same thing as I was building this, it's taken a long time to complete. I agree it really is a fun case to build in so much power in such a small frame, i'm hooked!

Look what Silverstone officially announced! About freaking time!! W00t w00t!



UPDATE: Still working on the sleeved and shorter PSU cables. Now these better be able to fit the new 600 Watt!!
