[Silverstone] Silverstone FT05 | CES 2014 - Page 57

post #561 of 674
1. Cooling
CPU coolers perform best with fans attached to them (to better remove heat from the heatsink), and a quality air cooler/fan combo will allow you to keep the case fans on low while being inaudible.
Recommended heatsinks using 120 mm fans:
- Thermalright HR-02 Macho (I’m using it, and confirm from 1st-hand experience it fits into the case)
- Scythe Mugen 4

2. Cable management
The HDD cage is a major pain when installing cables, removing it will make plugging the cables into the PSU much easier!
By not using the drive trays behind the motherboard, you will free up significant space to tidy up your cabling, and have as well additional tie points. However I'm not sure how the M2 drive will interact with the PCI slots, are you sure it won't prevent you fromo installing your SLI on the 8/8 slots?

I second Qu1ckset's advice of routing the 4/8 pin and front panel cables before installing the motherboard, the dedicated hole is too tight to do it once the mobo is in place. Keep in as well mind that the front LED requires a SATA power plug should you want to use it.

You should all in all have a good cable management experience with the case.

3. GPU cooler
If wonsidering the GTX 980, the stock cooler should be OK since it's already quiet.
I'm using a Thermalright Shaman as an aftermarket cooler on GTX 560 Ti. The heatsink has heatpipes going down in the FT05 (yes, I'm running it anyway in spite Silverstone's advice). I haven't noticed any issue in real life usage (gaming), but the card runs hotter in Furmark than in was in my Fractal Design Arc case.

Thanks for the info!
Added the Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev B to the plan.


As far as accessories, would you recommend a pair of Silverstone Sata Straight sleeved cables?
For the FT05, straight Sata cables are better than 90 degree ones, right?


Also, would you recommend the Window version of the case?

Cheers!

I'm using straight sata cables on my build and I have 90degress but found the straights easy to work with. If the FT05 windows reveals exactly the space as the RV05 I highly recommend the window version. I watched every review availibe and looked threw every picture on Google search before buying and building in the RV05 , reveiwers are said the window is horrible and doesn't show enough or shows to much but I think that because they could build a clean system, if you have crappy skills at cable management or have ugly yellow PCI-E and 24pin cables then yes your build gunna look like crap because the window shows it , my build looks perfect threw the window.

But I'm using the RV05 witch is pretty much the same chassis except for the obvious exterior and top panel.

I personally used the SATA cables I already had. If your motherboard is a standard ATX size, you'll have to use straight SATA since angled SATA will bump into the edge of their cable management hole. Maybe Silverstone's angled SATA are longer than the usual angled connector plug, in which case it should be fine.

I'm having the non-windowed version (the windowed one isn't yet available in Europe.

Aren't you supposed to use straight SATA plugs on motherboards anyway

After getting final pricing on getting a Maingear Shift chassis from the USA to Ireland it came to €1140 with duty, vat & shipping. Eh no. So I'm back to trying to find way to mount my 295x2 into a FT-05. Would the following be possible. I was thinking of removing the rear 180mm AP fan and placing the 295x2 120mm fan and rad in its place possibly with the fan or rad below the chassis chamber on the outside in the air intake. Would this work. Also would it allow me to lower the HDD cage into the free space allowing me to use it with my 190mm XFX PSU.

Alternatively, with the HDD cage removed and keeping the 2 AP fans could the 295x2 rad be stacked on top of one of the AP-181's without its 120mm fan letting the AP do the 120mm fans job or would that just not work. Thanks for any help as I'm starting to go a bit nuts trying to figure out what to get with a load of expensive hardware unusable without a case to put it all into frown.gif

Mount the 295 radiator on the top 120 fan hole and exhausting out. You want the hot air from the 295 out of the case.

But if you're using an AIO for the CPU already that means you're doomed ...
There is literally only 312mm clearance for GPUs in the FT05 and my R9 270X Toxic I put in it for demonstration makes the case look tiny which it really isn't.


I searched around for a tower heatsink or a 120 AIO and all I could find was a Maelstrom 240 so I ended up ... with this

My recommendation would be to place the 295x2 rad/fan on the top exhaust 120 mm, along with a slim tower CPU heatsink (example taken from SPCR's review of the Kraken G10: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article1416-page4.html). This obviously won't work is you're planning to use an AIO watercooler for the CPU, but what's the point of using a FT05 then?

Air being not that good at heat transfer, air modern CPU requiring moderate W, that should work provided you use moderate overclocks.

Should you want to lower the HDD cage into the AP181 space, you'll need to drill and tap the corresponding holes in the chassis and M/B plate. I would personally recommend against it, since the whole point of this case is to pack 2 bottom 180 mm fans in a reasonable volume.
