Silverstone Sugo SG08 / SG08-Lite Owners Club - Page 45

post #441 of 450
Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to get the version of this case that has the slot for the optical drive. Seems like it's called the SG08B-Lite, but lots of sites have that one listed as the one with the drive drawer (including Silverstone). So I'm pretty confused about the versioning of this case right now.

This is the one I want: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163253

But it seems like this is the only one I can find for sale: https://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-Mini-ITX-Computer-Front-SG08B-LITE/dp/B00I3EKXN4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1484287333&sr=1-1&keywords=sg08

Can anyone help clarify the different versions? Thanks!

If I recall correctly, there are 2 versions of the case;

1. (Let's call it) original, comes with good 600 watt PSU & accepts slim tray-loading optical drive.
2. Lite, no PSU & accepts slim slot-in optical drive.

Not sure if the original one is still in production, but I guess you can try to find one. Good luck anw.

That's what I thought too, but apparently there's a lite version that comes without the 600 watt PSU while still having the tray-loading optical drive. I definitely want the slot-in optical drive version. So there's two versions of the lite edition I guess... confusing.

I'm not sure.. Silverstone website only lists one Lite, that is without PSU http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=484&area=en

I suggest you to email them to confirm.

Upon further checking.. Now I feel stupid. Yes it seems that there are two versions of this SG08-lite. Hopefully you can find the one you want.

Wait what's the difference between slim slot in and slim tray loading?!
Like the super super slim slot in? Like a PS4 optical drive almost? (no front face?)

I'm worried, do I have a bad case?

Should've used better wording.. I meant slot loading.

Yes, just like PS drive. This picture should help.



* Edit:

The original SG08 model uses the tray loading optical drive. The Lite model, as @riziko said, seems to be available in both tray & slot loading optical drive.

When I bought mine, there were only 2 versions: "original" and lite. The "original" version had tray drive (like laptops) and the lite had slot in drive.

But now, it seems that silverstone has updated the lite model, using the tray drive from the "original" model but without top fan and psu.

Check Amazon and the like for used ones. Actually found a used SG08 (with the 600w PSU) on Amazon for $130...til I noticed he was local and bought it from him for $80 cash. Never know what you might find...definitely a case worth building with if you can though. Super compact.

Hi, had an issue building my rig but it ended up being a fairly simple fix in the end.

i7-3770 and gigabyte GTX1080 G1

I got this 1080 because the profile seemed ideal for this case, good sized cooler, 3 fans but a relatively low profile.
It fits in though the backplate does make contact with the PSU
But with the standard setup I had an issue were the CPU was very cool, like even sub 60C under load yet the GPU would go over 80C and get loud.
Seemed pretty clear that the fan on the top of the case pushing air in was doing an awesome job for the CPU but causing the GPU to basically choke on its own hot air.
Wondered if I had made a mistake and should have just got a 1080 with a blower...

Did some searching, found this thread and it made for a good read but I didn't really find something that would solve the problem.

In the end my fix was rather uncomplicated.
First I tried removing the top fan completely, this dropped the GPU temps to 70-73C but caused the CPU temps to skyrocket to ~90C and become unstable.
Then I simply installed the top fan in reverse and removed the shroud that fills the space between the fan and GPU completely. This has basically done the trick, GPU temps are around 60-64C max under load. CPU is around 70 under load.

i'm wondering if replacing the big fan that is in the case with a good 120mm fan will improve things even more. The case fan has a really beefy grill on the out side that seems like it may restrict flow? Its also very big and I'm thinking maybe a smaller 120mm fan will help airflow... Any recommended fans for this area?

to take it a step further maybe mod the case to install an extra outgoing fan on the side opposite the GPU or back???

also having the setup working this way means no dust filtering. Going to try source some dust filters for the side vents...

Cheers,
