thanks ablearcher! i kinda miss it though.



past and present



my current mATX pc still a WIP in that pic. but that was i think, almost a year ago.


here it is now. it's uhh... HUGE.






i upgraded the GTX 260 to an HD5870 recently. it still fits. i guess that's the advantage of having a BIG mATX case.

the case is Antec Mini P180.

@stormcrow, the SG01/02 was designed to fit upto 12" long cards , the longest card at the time being the HD2900XTX (... 12 inches ).

I only wonder if the HD5970 would fit into this case... hmm.....


But my biggest complaint of the SG01/02 is the extremely limited space for a decent CPU cooler. (Here shows how).


But I still managed

thanks DevilGear44! i updated my sig to the current specs.

ablearcher, i had the older SG01 that had drive bays blocking the path of long video cards. the longest i could fit in there (without any modding) was an ATI 4850.

anyway, the length of the video card wasn't the reason i switched cases. it was actually the mobo. the cpu socket of the DFI LP JR (this is what i upgraded to) sits too close to the edge, hence prevented me from using my Enzotech HSF. it's going over the side of the SG01. LOL!

The silverstone manual tells the user to:

remove the HDD bay's fan, and replace it with a 10/15mm, or just... remove it.

Then slide the drive bay into the old fan position.

I had to do this for my 9800GX2, but I eventually managed to kill the card (), and got 9800gt, later SLI 9800gt to replace it.


But for coolers.... ARGH! Why couldn't Silverstone... do what Da Box did? They claim supurior innovation, and all that, but didn't think to shove the PSU somewhere else? Because some of my server boxes do just that (actually, all of them do. They are ATX 2U & 1U cases with extended PSU)!


Ach.... at least you have a nice selection of cases

and now you know you may fit a H50 into the SG01/02.... at the cost of the optical drives

haha! i'll consider that when i get back to using an SG01 case in the future. you know what, that's for sure. i think i'll be building an HTPC on that case.

A HTPC without optical drives? !?

Ha! But I still believe it is worth it. Any air cooler we can fit into there would be a worse-off compromise, in my opinion.
