Small Form Factor Case Picture and Discussion Thread - Page 12

post #111 of 170
Hello fellow SFF enthusiasts!

I'm currently in the process of building and OC'ing a Thermaltake Lanbox with a Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L board. An in-depth post (with pics!) will be up soon

You may also be interested in joining the microATX OC club here.

Regards,

My dad finally decided on the Silverstone SG01-Evolution for our file server. I will take pictures as we put it together.

We need to order a new CPU heatsink so it will be a couple of days..

A look from the outside..



PSU wires, and the insanely long front input cables.



I've already started a little cable management with the SATA cables and the Power/Reset/LED wires.

Wow, Rug that looks extremely jammed with cables Getting good airflow without a modular PSU will be a challenge methinks!

Just cut and tape off wires that you'll never use....

Yep, we have a lot of extra PSUs.. and this was one of them. We're going to cut off wires we don't need and shorten them later when I get a molex removal tool.

I'm glad I found this thread, SFF really don't get the appreciation that they deserve. I've been a long time Shuttle devotee (until recently) and I miss my SN95G5 incredibly.

I did a few mods on my older SN45Gs but these were little things, nothing major - for example, removing the honey-comb grill so exhausting air was improved. It did actually help with internal temperatures and my CPU temp.

I'll take some shots of my SN95G5, it was a great little box and I know I'll return to a Shuttle at some point. Don't know what came over me to move to ATX.

Wow stumbled uppon this thread...

Where shall I start on my mATX life

Well, i had this Medion PC my grandma bought for me, mATX case, and it was nice. I still use some of the components.

But, even though right now I have 3 personal machines for my self, I couldn't resist and the family machine that is mine but I kinda gave it to them to use is an Apevia XQPack with
P4 2.66 GHz CPU
Biostar P4-M900-M4
2x1 GB PQI Turbo DDR2 667 (PC 5400)
HIS Radeon HD 2600 pro 512mb IceQ 3 Turbo.

and I love this little machine, I game on it alot with Source games and WoW, it is my Lan Box and I just can't help but be allured by this computer

My other 3 computers are my sig rig (Need to update, getting a new card just haven't decided but I did move the old cards out so I'm not using it right now)

spare Desktop, its a
E2220 stock
Foxconn P35
2x1 GB PQI Turbo DDR 2 800 (PC 6400)
2x HIS Radeon HD 2600 XT IceQ 3 Turbo in CFX


Then their is my server which specs are useless its a data center, but the case is like 3 Lian Li full towers stacked on thier sides. Its horendous and I wouldn't want to move it. EVER!

But I do have my good share of computers and I love my little mATX cases. I just like the QPack more so I use it to lan but I might do a part transfer.

Also, mATX requires modular cables, if you don't have a PSU with that, then get it you silly fewl.

Would OCZ Reaper memory fit in one of the QPACKs? I was thinking about sticking my rig in one of those SFF cases.
