Yeah but i'm not sure if it's psu or front panel weight. Alumunium shouldn't be that heavy.

First time building mini itx? Better prepare your measurements well smile.gif

Anyone tried a new GeForce 1080 Founder's in a SG-08 yet? I've had my '08 for a couple of years, and love the thing -- I'm hoping to drop a new GPU in straight away.

On paper, it looks like everything should work, and the length should fit. According to Amazon, a EVGA 1080 is: 26.7 x 3.8 x 15.1 cm. I have an old 660 GXT/Ti in my box, which looks like it's a bit smaller in the height and length dimensions than the new board.

If anyone has experience with the latest 1080, or can confirm that it works, I'd love to know.

Thanks in advance,

I have a EVGA 780ti stuffed in mine and there's plenty of room to spare, the only difference is height between 780/1080 (that I can see) is the height.

780ti height = 11.1cm vs the 1080's 15.1cm

So essentially height is your enemy!

Not sure wether this helps!

I just replaced an EVGA 560ti with an Asus STRIX 960 in my SG08. I checked the dimensions and it looked like it would fit but I hadn't counted on the different power connector placement (on top as opposed to on the end). This means 180mm case fan does not fit. For reference I have Intel Core i5 3570K s1155 with an AKASA AK-960V2. Outside of a HDD, SSD and PSU there isn't anything else in the case. For now I'm running without a case fan but I'm not sure that's a good idea long term and there is a noticeable increase in noise and fans speed changes. I'm not entirely sure if this is the graphics card or the cpu fan.

A couple of options I thought of are getting a 120mm fan (was thinking the Silverstone AP123) or I think I could probably remove a corner on the fan housing for the 180mm fan and it might fit but I'm terrible at DIY so I'd probably just break the whole thing and chop my arm off in the process.

I was wondering if anyone else has the same card or similar and had a found a good solution? I'm more interested in quiet than performance.

I had similar problem with GPU top connector, and I decided just to replace the top case fan with a smaller one (120mm).

In fact, I actually I ran it without top fan for some time (between removing the top fan & buying a new 120mm fan).. I use a top-down CPU cooler (Noctua NH-L12i) and no OC - so I guess my cpu & mobo is cool enough even without that top fan smile.gif

Interesting. So for fitting a 1080 this seems to confirm my suspicions on what the critical problems may be... Thanks for the feedback.

So I'm looking at about a 4cm height differential that I need to account for -- I might just make a 4cm spacer block tonight and see if that fits on top of my current 660 GTX Ti. I'm using a stock Intel cpu fan / gpu vent / case fan (high settings) and have been happy for the last 2.5 years -- I don't typically overclock much in my smaller builds, since I have other chassis for that.

That 4cm delta is a concerning -- nothing I've looked at seems to go above the 111mm mark, so I'm really hoping this beast can work. The case and basic build has been a great investment to date, and I'd love to push it further another year or two if able

1080 is ordered... I'll let you SG-08 owners know how it goes when/if I get it installed on arrival

Hello sg08 owners, I am thinking about switching to this case because my sg13 isn't quite big enough to fit newer video cards.

Do you think that would be a good upgrade?

I've read a lot of reviews and I'm really liking the temps the sg08 gets.

Length wise, it supports many full length video cards. However, your main enemy is video cards HEIGHT. Nowadays, lot of them have big heatpipes, fan & shroud. It can easily extend the standard video card size.

Measure your vga spec & check Silverstone website if it's supported.

Thanks do you know what the height limit is for graphics cards in this case? I can only find a length and width limit on silverstone's website.
