SG05 is cute, but I'd like to have a little bit more room to work with so the SG08 is intriguing.

Aside from native support for a second 2.5" drive, they are actually capable of holding the same gear for the most part...... I've owned both, and sold the SG08 to @stickg1 as it was to large for what it actually was meant for in my eyes. So I kept the SG05 biggrin.gif

I wonder what the best cooling solution for the graphics card would be. I've got a MSI Gaming 290 with the Twin Frozr, but it can't handle furmark at baseclock without going to 95C and throttling and it does sound hairdryer-y. I have two 120 mm Noctua NF-S12A PWM fans as intakes, which are meant for case ventilation. There is a 4mm gap between the card and the fans. The case is horizontally oriented with about 2 cm to spare in height while storing it in my TV-bench

I was thinking about the following options:

-Replacing one or both fans with Noctua NF-F12:s which are designed with focus air flow for heatsink and radiator purposes. I was thinking if they could reduce the need of the Twin Frozr -fans, so I could run them on a low RPM under load. I'm not sure whether it would work.

-Buying an aftermarket cooler for the card (Arctic Accelero Xtreme III or IV for example). It has been said that these offer better performance and noise than the stock cooler, but I'm not sure if it is much better than the Twin Frozr

-Getting a AIO or DIY watercooling system. I'm not sure if it is cost-effective at all to get one of these but if it would be quiet and cool maybe it would be fine. I'm also worried if the gap under the case would be enough for radiator ventilation.

I'd like to be able to run the card without throttling, but also without much noise and preferably close to silent when idle. Is it at all possible with this case?

First of all, you shouldn't use furmark for any GPU loading, it has a tendency to really overvolt a card. Instead of furmark, go download unigine valley 1.0 for free and have it set to loop the benchmark. It's a much more realistic use, and it won't fry your already way to hot card to begin with.

Then let us know how it did.
Personally, I wouldn't run any of the AMD R9 series cards as air cooled, even in a full size case, let alone a mini case, only liquid. They are just too hot running even with a non-reference cooler. But that's just my opinion.

If your going to be gaming with the card, then play some of your games also and see how it does temp wise.

There will be enough air for a radiator setup in the horizontal position, but remember, in the horizontal layout, it increases the temps for the rest of the hardware versus vertical.

In Unigine Valley XHD it runs at 90C when stuffing coasters under the legs of the case until the top cover touches the top of my tv-bench slot and it goes to 95C and starts to throttle with the stock feet for the case.

How noisy would a watercooling system be?

On the silverstone homepage they only state the diameter (120mm)...

So is it confirmed that the included case fans just have a height of 15mm (instead of 25)? In that case I don´t have to order smaller ones.

But I am wondering a bit, because many people complained about no beeing able to operate the case fan (when the CPU-cooler is too big) and instead suggested to use one with a height of 15mm...

Yes, the case included 2 120x 15MM fans. Out of box one is installed under the GPU area, the other is above where the CPU would go.

Yes you have to pay attention to the height of your cooler. If you use the NT06 Pro, you will NOT be able to use the case fan above it. If you use the NT-l12 you will NOT be able to use the 25MM fan the cooler comes with, however you CAN use the case 15MM fan. You could then use the Noctura 25MM fan in the GPU area.

Personally I would use 2 fans in the GPU area. Seems you CAN use 25MM fans down there.

The consensus for good cooling options are:

AXP-100/muscle (small with decent numbers can use 15MM fan above)
Noctura NH-l12 (great performance at premium. Cant use included 25MM fan, but CAN use case 15MM fan)

2 Members have also reported good temps with:

Zalaman 8900 Quiet (member reported 55-60 degrees Temps during game play no OC'ed without use of fan above, can probably get better temps if one was used
Coolermaster GeminII S4

You can find it on ebay here:

only three left though! redface.gif

My AXP-100 should be here tomorrow and case/PSU on Wed. Ill post some pics of the AXP tom.

What are you doing about the Case fans/config?

I found a 120 x 20MM fan on ebay that I ordered. Im going to put the 2 15's by the GPU, then use the 20 for the top. Hopefully the 15's wont be to noisy...

Im still waiting on my GPU and Blue Ray drive...I ordered the Blue Ray from China on Ebay. You'll probably have yours up and running before I get everything...I look forward to your pics/results!
