Club for those with beastly mATX/ITX rigs. - Page 259

@ orangensaft

The 6950/70 is longer than the GTX 480 and 580 by a little. You can fit the 480 in without cutting the front black panel. I meant so much crap in the sense that every other I have found does not include a full size hdd, 2.5hdd, mofo gfx card, and cooler with push/pull. All others I have seen have either been without the 3.5hdd, only had 1x fan, no original top OD bay allowing for 2xhdd. I still have room to mount another 3.5hdd below psu if I choose. A larger modular psu would be heaven though, but the size difference between an atx and sfx psu is HUGE!
Theyre all awesome either way though cool.gif


@ hondajt

At the moment the psu is sucking from the back and pushing out the top. I did this to stop hot air from the PSU blasting into the case.

@ rheicel
It is pretty cool hey XD

@ a pet rock
That is correct. There is no way to fit the cooler, vertically or horizontally, while having it still align with the original front fan screw holes - and having room for an optical drive.

@ lagittaja
Yes, I did have to cut through the front black panel and also the internal steel frame. Without the black front panel, you really do see how much this card sticks out. Its easily 10mm. Was a pretty daunting task with the dremel and no spare front panel. Ill put up more pics soon!

@ voklskier4452
I wish I had cable management like yours!

I was inspired by some other recent SG-05 builds, so I made some changes to my case layout and inverted my PSU. I also made much of an effort to "manage" my cables....but it's tough. I got my 1TB HDD inside, leaving my external HDD Dock empty and sad.

Here's what is inside now:
Motherboard: H67N-USB3-B3
HDD: 3.5" Barracuda 7200.12
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 120GB
GPU: MSI GTX460 1GB Cyclone
PSU: SST-ST45SF 450W

I'm happy. Wish I had a better aftermarket cooler, but with a Core i3-2100 it's not really needed.

Love your build in the Fractal Arc Mini. I an moving my Maximus IV Gene-Z build to an Arc Mini as soon as it arrives. I hope the H60 fits in the front above the lower drive cage. I will post pictures, so everyone will know if it works out! Any thoughts on the potential fit?

The paint on this case looks amazing and is pretty scratch resistant. The case comes largely with thumbscrews for everything instead of flimsy plastic toolless solutions. Overall I would say this case is a very close second to my all time favorite CM 690.

Okay, finally got around to actually taking the pictures
Surprisingly good quality after all, cheated a little bit with grey scale but

This first pic failed a little bit but I don't care, and I forgot to resize it..










I want a real camera, phone cam sucks

Looking good ^

Maybe I'll post some new pics after I get my CPU cooling solution all figured out. Just got my 580 in the mail a few hours ago
