SG08 Question - PSU

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
First...why is there no SG07/08 Club? Seems to be one for 5,6...9,10, lol.

I am looking to get a SG08-Lite (No PSU). I have a ST55F-G already for a PSU. It's 140mm modular.

Will it fit? I'm looking to have a full sized GPU installed as well. If it fits, I understand that it will be crazy tight...but I am hoping that it fits at all.

I always wondered the same thing. Someone should of created a SG0X club or if you'd like, create an SG08 club, would be nice to follow. This is a nice looking little case.

Your PSU will be a BIG issue in the case. I have a the ST50F-P and to make it work I have to put it in differently. It will work fine but not the official way. GPUs up to 11.5 inchs will work fine though

Cool - what did you mean by differently? What did you have to do?

I had to place the PSU the other way and put the 2.5 drives ontop of the HDD with velcro. It works fine. I'm about to get a dremel to cut up the bracket that holds the PSU in place so I can use it like I need

Thank you! +rep

Hmm, that will be quite the challenge. In that orientation, it would be exhausting into the video card, and I imagine that both would get quite hot on load.

I may have to flake out on this case... :'(

modifying a case to your needs is challenging sure, but that sense of accomplishment is awesome.

Not really that hot. The PSU gets barely warm but never HOT. It works fine

How well does a h60 or h75 fit in this case? I was tempted to check out the SG08-Lite. Are temps decent?

I already have the 450w SFX PSU so that's not an issue.

They fit fine and they will get fine temps since they are grabbing air directly from your room
