ssf isn't for everyone. takes time and patience to build it right. you need to just sit back and rethink things. cable management and air flow are the most important in ssf.

what case do you have there? would not have been my choice for gaming,but maybe we can figure out how to fix it.

Have you seen my pics/mods?I just went to the extremes.Thanks for the advice though.When they come out with a MITX case thay will accomedate a accellero I am there.Nothing is better then the accellero for air.

Need 3 slots...this guy is not understanding itx at all...

I think caselabs has an oversized itx case for you.

I don't know what your idea of a "proper" gaming pc is, but IMO a single high-end GPU + any decent i5 or i7 more than qualifies. Providing you're not expecting massive overclocks, the SG05 can manage that just fine.

And? Was it stable under load, or not? Granted, you wouldn't want to redline it all day long, but modern GPUs are designed to operate at temperatures in excess of 80 or 90C. The only thing lower temperatures are going to get you are 1.) more overclocking headroom, 2.) lower noise (in exchange for cooling), and 3.) component longevity (which, as long as it's running under spec, is unlikely to make a difference before the component in question becomes obsolete).

I see you've stuffed an ATX PSU into the SG05, which completely changes the airflow dynamic in the case. Why would you blame the case for what you perceive as its failure to perform, when you're not even using it as designed? I think you need to check your expectations.
