i kinda agree with the node, its well balanced in all regards cept for the lack of 5.25" bays which can be handy for stuff like fan controllers. cooling and component fitment wise is really well planned however the power switch and USB ports on the side may not suit everyone

The SG05 is pretty much the smallest case that supports a normal sized gpu. If you want smaller size, you'll have to use low profile cards.

All the cases mentioned above (except for the antec isk300 and the thermaltake a30) are immensely larger than the SG05

If he is okay with a Kaveri build without a discrete GPU there are some very small cases that could accommodate a build like that.

This last one can actually support a long GPU with it's riser board that it comes with. Might be worth checking out.

Here's a good little guide for making a small silent PC. (adjust hardware as needed to modernize)

I'd explain to your friend that you can keep it a reasonable size, but, too small and it will not only cause possible heat issues, but not be very expandable.

Something like the link below sounds like it would be a fairly small, quiet, and capable system.

*Personally, I'd just let the guy buy a gaming laptop. It sounds to me like he can't fit a decent desktop in his setup. I suspect that you're wanting to build him a system so you can build a system, not because it meets his needs.

PC-TU200 is a very small case and should fit a fair range of cards, will accept up to 300mm. If you need smaller then the TU100 is work better than you can imagine. I saw quite a few systems using this case recently at a LAN event and they where playing the full gambit of games with no issues. The problem is you need a shorter card to do this.

What about the Silverstone RVZ01? You can't have strong cooling on the CPU, but it would be fine for a locked CPU and cheapest ITX board you can find (board won't be cheap if you need WLAN). The case can fit a normal graphics card, two 2.5" drives and a 3.5" HDD, has room for a slim optical drive. You probably need to buy the recommended SFF PSU from Silverstone.
post #17 of 20
Lan-gear Infinity if you have someone in Europe to order it on your behalf and then post it on. But probably not worth the expense.

Think it's the same volume in litres as the SG05, but different external dimensions. Supporting longer graphic cards.

No idea on quality of case. It doesn't include optical drive cover if don't plan to fit optical. Also front USB 2 ports instead of 3.
post #18 of 20
Theres this too. Basically drop a cpu in, hdd/ssd,ram,gpu. Looks like longest card supported may be 290mm. Also not sure how cpu cooling works. Of course i dont know if you have any other parts or not and what the budget overall is. This wouldnt be the cheapest option.

Silverstone SG05 FTW! You can't go wrong with one.

The answer is FT03 Mini. It is basically a standing SG05. The advantage here is in the desk space it occupies is less than that of the SG05,whilst holding much of the same stuff.
