SG05 build questions/suggestions - Built, Thank you

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I have decided on the SG05.

1. I was wondering if there is a reason to buy the case with the powersupply included when I can purchase them seperatly for less ~$115 vs $35+60?

2. Is there any reason to go for the ST45SF-G (modular, gold) over the ST45SF when all the wires will be used and gold ends up being loader?

3. Suggestions for cpu cooler?

4. Should I be purchasing an extra fan for the side window?

Thanks

Hello,

So I have these components and looking to move into a smaller case:

HAF 912 (230 x 480 x 496 mm)
Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 (mATX)
N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/OC (238 x 111 x 37mm)
Hyper 212 plus (161mm tall)
XFX Core Edition 450W (140mm x 86mm x 150mm)

Also, I dont need a dvd drive, and i could use a 2.5inch HHD + SSD (if removing hdd 3.5 inch cage will make some case that i dont know about better for my needs.)


Looking at the cases suggested as well as other, I have come to the possible solutions here:

SG09 build @ $110: $85 for case, $25 for wificard (220 mm (W) x 295 mm (H) x 354 mm (D))

SG01 build @ $175: $100 for case, $25 for wificard, $35-50 for new cpu heatsink (263 mm (W) x 212 mm (H) x 393 mm (D))

SG05 build @ $290-90 : $115 for case, $100-125 for new mobo, $35-50 for new cpu heatsink - Salvage old mobo and psu (~$90)

SG05 build - with modding @ $190-50: $35 for case, $100-125 for new mobo, $35-50 for new cpu heatsink - Salvage old mobo (~$50)
(222 mm (W) x 176 mm (H) x 276 mm (D), 10.8 liters)

Size comparison: http://imgur.com/DwV86Hs

The suggested Node 304 is too big to justify a new mobo purchase and the TJ08E doesnt seem to be much smaller than the HAF912.

Parts Iv looked at:
Heatsink: Silverstone NT06-PRO 6
Mobo: Zotac Z68ITX-A-E Mini ITX Z68, Gigabyte Z77N-WIFI mITX
Also, USB3.0 front panal is a nice little bonus with new motherboard.

Thanks again for your input/help/suggestion/corrections.

First thing that came to mind was Corsair 350D. It's a really sweet mATX case thumb.gif

It also defies the point if he thinks node 304 is too big for itx.

If you can save on seperately go for it.
The gold one gives more power, the bronze one is quieter,decide.
Scythe Kozuti and Silverstone NT07 are good. Most people prefer to watercool though,not my thing so I can't help.
Graphics goes on the side with the grill. So no?

1. Get parts for cheaper smile.gif

2. Unless you are making your own shortened cables, there is no good reason for using the modular version. Non-modular is much easier to route in this case. Minute electrical savings are not justified by the extra cost, unless you are folding or mining.

3. If overclocking, you might want to consider H60 instead of NT06-PRO. You lose drive cage but can mount 2x notebook drives by bending piece of aluminium like pics below.

4. Case is so tiny, single 120mm fan on front, and whatever fans on GPU are enough for sufficient airflow in this case.

Thank you guys for the replys.

I had looked at your build (including sleeving thread - very nice! but not for me) previously among many many others.

I wont be using a optical drive or 3.5" dirve (2x2.5"s) which makes it great for liquid cooling but on the other hand I was a little bit worried in terms of leaks. Would moving the computer around a lot in anyway increase the chance of leaks?

I would appreciate opinion on cooler (Mild oc as the motherboard doesn't have voltage adjustments)

Cooler Master Seidon 120M @ $62-25MIR=~$50
Antec Kuhler H2O 920 @ $75
NT06-PRO @ $50
NH-L9i @ $45
H60 @ $70
H50 @ $65
Crazy idea @ $70 + mobo upgread: ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE + NH-L12 (as it wont fit the the board) and replace the case fan with the 120 fan of the NH-L12).
