I have MSI 970 Gaming. That card is so long that efficiently separates a GPU-generated hot air from CPU and mobo side. there is of course warmth in the back of the card, but most of it goes outside through side panel mesh.

As I told you - those temps are high, but it is a 4.4GHz CPU with a stock cooler and just 800rpm front fan.

You are going to use decent LP CPU cooler on a soldered IHS non-overclocked CPU and a higher RPM front intake fan.

Those two scenarios compared, I think you are definately on the safe side

Thanks again for the reply. You've given me the confidence to go through with the build, however...

I only just noticed the width restriction on the GPU (posted on Silverstone's website at 5.11"). Unfortunately, the 660 ti I have to use has a width of 5.4". I looked up your MSI 970 and it has a width of 5.5". Have I located the wrong model or did you manage to exceed the width restrictions without issue?
post #1103 of 2702
you ned to look through this thread. there was info,links and long discussion concerning the GPU width restrictions. long story short there is about 12mm of undocumented free space inside the front cover. in my case that cover is pushed and bended out a little by 970 heatpipes. It is still placex correctly and no "look" degradation can be seen. As far as I remember I have the 2ns edition msi 970 gaming PCB which is longer. 1st edition was a perfect fit for a SG13. don't know whether MSI updated their webpage or not and which length is currently displayed there.

edit: to be honest I am not sure about those 12mm. I can verify it for you later.

Yep, managed to find a similar discussion here on length (that I had oddly assumed would be OK for the 660 ti). The 660ti has no chance of fitting within the sg13.

My mistake, was thinking we are talking about length all the time. Side effect of using a phone to read forums.

Should I flip the PSU face up if I am going to use a "tall" CPU cooler ,like 55mm+.

Pulled the trigger and the parts are on their way! Yay! smile.gif

(I live in Tokyo)

SSD:
SM951 256GB M.2 NVME
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015CWQY4Q
Had to order this from US, they wouldn't have anything reasonably priced in Japan. $199+$20 for shipping was quite nice smile.gif

Memory:
CORSAIR DDR4 2666 C16
https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B0123ZAQJE
Nothing faster available within reasonable price range. Funny thing is, the estimated delivery for this is at the end of the month. I'll get the SSD from US faster...

Motherboard:
GA-Z170N-Gaming 5
https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B01551O1XU
Did a lot of sleuthing around, and I think this is currently pretty much the best MB around for mini-itx builds. Has the proper pcie 3.0 x4 for NVME, USB 3.1 etc. And all the other that were even listed had a few months of delivery estimate.

PSU:
Silverstone SST-SX500-LG and the short cable kit
https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B00SGJF7D2
Reasonably priced, gives the tight case more breathing room even when I have no intention using the caddy for drives. Just enough wattage for good OC.

Case:
I think you know this one smile.gif
https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B00TQPLUEA

AIO:
Corsair H80i
A bit expensive but I haven't read any definitive deal-breaking things about this in SG13 compared to other candidates. Should work just fine with push-pull.
https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B009ZN03AA

CPU:
i5-6600K
Seems to overclock really well and be on par with the i7 on gaming. And my GPU will be the bottleneck anyway. And the 6700k is a tad bit on the expensive side I think.
https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B012M8M7TY

GPU:
I'll be re-using my 780 GTX from my main PC. Main will be getting something el-cheapo because from now on, it'll be photoshop and non-gaming tasks only. The display I'm using with mine is a 2560x1600 old Dell with high-gamut which is great for photography work (calibrated of course) and the 780 has been just fine pushing pixels for the games I play. So now this is going to drive the new box under tv which is 1080p, so I would expect a decrease on the bottleneck smile.gif And finally good 5.1 audio.

This case is tight, wondering if it would somehow be possible to install an R9 Fury X and an all in one CPU cooler? wondering if it could somehow be fitted on the opposite side to the GPU. Might go for the R9 Fury X2 Gemini we shall see. Any advice is much appreciated, I know the case is designed for fairly long GPUs so might just get the R9 Fury instead or a GTX 980TI

My second sg13 come, this time I toke extra care and the power botton cable still go eol in one day, can't silverstone maybe tap some hot glue on it ffs?

Hello guys! So, I went into my local PC shop and stumbled upon this case and absolutely loved it because of how small it is! Therefore, I want my next system to be built around this case. Also, keep in my, I want to transport the case as a possible carry-on on a plane from time to time. These are the parts I've chosen:

CPU: i5 6600k
CPU cooler: undecided (look below please)
Motherboard: Asus Z170i Pro Gaming
Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2800 Memory (should I get low profile ram?)
GPU: Gigabyte G1 390 (234 mm in length or 9.2 inch)
Storage: 1 Samsung EVO 500 GB
PSU: SX600-G (Silverstone SFX PSU) with short cable kit
Case Fan: Noctua NF-F12 (This is a 120 mm fan, can I fit a 140 mm fan if I use 1 ssd and the GPU listed above?)

CPU cooler: I want to use a low profile CPU cooler like the Noctua L9i/Silverstone AR06/Zalman CNPS8900 because 1) it's cheaper than an AIO 2) If I transport the case around I'm worried an AIO will leak 3) I don't plan on OC'ing the CPU so I just need a cooler to give me respectable temps and noise levels. I don't want the CPU to throttle or go near dangerous temperatures. Also, if I do use a low profile cooler, should the PSU fan be facing up towards the vent of the case, as opposed to, down into the CPU cooler?

Thanks so much everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your cases! thumb.gif
