Good job with wire management ninja. One of these days I will route my wires properly and perhaps pick up a modular PSU, but until then, I have no alternative but to stuff all my power cords in that corner.

Terrific job on the Silverstone SFF build. I am looking into doing one (very stripped down) to take along with me on repair jobs where I need a scanner. Is there any way you could have a place on this case (with cutting of course) to leave a molex hang out along with both an IDE and a SATA cable? Do you think this case would work well to use as a scanner? Is it safe to assume that a handle could be bolted to the top for carrying?

Thanks for any help, and I vote for a sticky on this thread. I think there will be a lot more rigs like this being seen around in the near future, and it would be a great place for people to find some info on SFF.

Good luck.

First off, thanks for the comments!

Second, you could definitely just cut a small hole in the right side and have a molex, IDE, and SATA cable poke out through the hole. You could definitely also bolt a handle on to the top, but if you want a handle, you should honestly consider the ThermalTake LanBOX.

I love Silverstone and the beautiful face in the Sugo. (I wish I could duplicate that look)

BUT (there is always a but with me

That the PS and CPU are pulling air against each other is silly.

*nods*

Silverstone has a nice passive cooler for modern CPU's that uses the PSU's fan to exhaust air from the huge surface of the HSF, but I'm going to try the Blue Orb first.

Mark, I really like the "wind tunnels" on the GPU's in your QPACK build. It looks very nice!

thanks, I had a pair of 7600GTs and epoxied the copper heatsinks to them. With the Silenx 120 X 38mm fan and the tube they never went over 40C.
Its pretty amazing how much air is directed when you use the tube. I am trying to find more of it (its an oddball size 4 5/8" od)

pbpenguins412, sweet Silverstone.

Dood! You sure were able to cram a lot of wires into that tiny space. Well done.

There was an image of a fan that sat at angle. Was that part of the stock case, or did you mod that? Either way, nice touch.

Here is a Thermaltake VF1000 that I modded for liquid cooling:






yuppers... it sux working in such a tight space.
But, well worth the effort and lacerations.

trust me bro it wasn't that hard (all the wires are ziptied inside the bottom 5.25" bay )

i wouldn't suggest modular psu's w/ sff cases.. as they tend to be too long or the plugs get in the way of the opticals and make it not fit..

the coolermaster extreme series are great psu's and they have few wires which is why i choose it.





now.. im starting to miss sff im back on a cm690 and its so bulky >< (mobo,cpu,hdd, etc not even in it.. just my psu and half my w/c loop and its @ 38lbs >_>


im thinking of getting that thermaltake lanbox.. it looks sexy but again.. the new rogue case looks awsome too and it w/c ready

what you guys think?

nzxt rogue or thermaltake vf1000(aka lanbox) ?
