I'm a new owner of a SUGO SG13BW and just wanted to drop in here
I put together the following build:
PSU: Corsair SF600
MOBO: Asus Z170i Pro Gaming with the WiFi/BT card swapped to Intel 8265 (because the Atheros one sucks)
CPU COOLER: Noctua NH-L12 push/pull
RAM: DDR4 G.Skill RipJaws V 3000Mhz 2x8GB
SSD: M.2 Samsung 960 Pro 512GB
Storage: HGST 4TB
GPU: MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X - just sold it, EVGA GTX 1080 FTW2 ICX on it's way
Some comments on the build:
Had to apply the case cut-out discussed in this thread to allow the 1070 to go all the way to the front mesh with enough space for the 6pin connectors. It was a very tight fit, I was basically unable to mount the front dust filter because I'd have to really squeeze the front panel to the GPU and I was not comfortable with that.
The EVGA 1080 FTW2 is a few milometers shorter, so apart from increased performance, it's gonna solve that issue for me.
For the CPU cooling, I found that the Noctua NH-L12 was the tallest one I could squeeze in with a push/pull configuration, but only under 2 conditions:
1) SFF PSU (adds 3cm to the maximum compatible cooler height)
2) Swapping the stock Noctua top fan on the cooler with a slimmer alternative - I used the CryoRig XT140 which is an over-sized fan with a width of 13mm
I had to mount the XT140 to the cooler using plastic bands because the over-sized format made it impossible to use the metal pins, but it worked out fine. Overall, I have a few millimeters of clearance between the fan and the PSU which is fine. The PSU is mounted to intake from the top and exhaust from the back, so it's not interfering with the air flow inside the case. I use the left over 120mm Noctua cooler as front intake.
CPU temperatures are very good - around 35C under Windows/normal usage at 23C ambient. Gaming is below 50C, Prime stress testing doesn't go above 60C.
This is with a slight OC of 3850MHz - so basically around TurboMode clocks - which I managed to hit on a slight undervolt (1.1V in bios, sligthly lower IRL).
I had to reassemble the rig to mount the M2 drive and the front panel USB connector refused to be removed from the motherboard. I tried tugging and squeezing it in every conceivable way and it didn't want to detach.
In the end, both the mother board connector plastic and the front panel connector plastic give in faster...
As you can see on the pic, the plastic from the front panel connector detached and remained in the motherboard socket
Even when taking that whole part off the motherboard I was not able to detach those two even using pliers (!). This is beyond retarded and the 1st time I see something like this in my 15 years of building rigs.
I will probably take this to SilverStone support and hope they can remedy the situation in some way by at least sending me new USB connector cable...
This still won't fix the connector on my mobo though Edited by kyjol - 4/15/17 at 10:41am
