Small Form Factor Case Picture and Discussion Thread - Page 10

putting a q6600 in that case with that little room could cause some overheating problems. Since your psu is almost sitting on top of the cooler i don't think there's be enough air flow for one. Maybe one of the 45nm chips since they run cooler than the q6600 but definitely not the q6600

An Antec NSK1300 is going to be arriving at my doorstep today, and I plan to migrate my system to it.

Plans:
1.) Remove stock PSU, use PW-200-M 200W DC-DC power supply with a Dell Y2515 220W power brick - will free up a lot of space.
2.) Soft mount/suspend hard drive to front of chasis(not using HDD/Optical Tray)
3.)Install 120mm fan in the rear as an intake, use blower fan as an exhaust for airflow around the Video Card

Those are the major things, minor things include testing the air cooling power with vents blocked/unblocked. I'm not going to have an internal optical drive, I bought a Lacie USB powered DVD-RW drive, and my 500gb WD is already in an external Ethernet enclosure. Works pretty snazzy. The only issues with the build at the moment are that the Lacie and the PW-200M havent shipped...so initially I'm going to be running wires from the outside of the case.

I also plan on modifying the front panel of the case to make it more streamlined since I wont have an optical drive inside, and I wont need the analog phone/mic jacks.

This thread has pictures of a mod that inspired me, I'm going to try and do something similar.

My Sugo 3 is currently at the anodizer. I phoned them today for an update and was told that it would be tomorrow getting done because there was a film on the aluminum. If I get the case back tomorrow I'll throw my stuff in and try to take a few shots.

WARNING: THIS POST WILL TAKE AN HOUR AND A HALF TO LOAD IF YOU'RE ON DIAL-UP.

For the uninitiated, here's a stock Sugo3





So I got to modding it...




here she is naked



I've been waiting on these panels from a local finishing company for a week. The acrylic piece is courtesy Syrillian, a fantastic guy to work with.



Fast forward 6 hours and you get here... after some magic. While I had it open I replaced the dinky N/B heatsink. The stock AMD cooler is only there until I put the CPU under water.

And finally











Flash did some funny stuff to that last one. It doesn't look at all like that, but this is my post and I'm going to do whatever the hell I want to with it.

PURE ACTION!!!

Sexy little case. It's pretty spacious for a mATX.

Where's the PSU?

mounts above the CPU. You can see the cut out in the rear panel for it. It's why I chose to go with water because a kick-ass air cooler won't fit.

Wow, Ronin!

That looks so schweeeet!

...I do believe that I just got small-case-envy

Nice vision, nice outcome.

Now that I see the inside of the case I understand what you where doing... not that I ever doubted you ....

I'm glad you found it. I was moments from shooting you a PM. It would have been a lot more frustrating without your help.

I think I'm going to do the frame of the outer part in black and possibly replace the mesh with a window (if Syrillian's up to it).

Aside from that I'm delighted with how it turned out. The panels were decidedly darker than I originally hoped, but ultimately I'm happy with how it turned out.
