See its funny you say that because the Arc Mini and Define Mini to me are too big for SFF, even though they are good looking cases. The Array is quiet small and compact, if they just made it wider for a Matx it would be perfect.

Just doing a followup on this build here - http://www.overclock.net/14958863-post2594.html

I finished painting my SG05. Pics below. For those wondering, I used a painting sponge and some red Rustoleum spray paint to get the effect.

looking good, now to switch that 6970 with a 6990!!!!!

you'd be exhausting air from the front and back of the case, that I want to see.
Shhh!

Thanks! I've also tried a similar painting style with a paint brush and white interior paint. It provides for a slightly different style along the same lines.

If I had the money, I'd totally try it! Although, I'm not quite sure the PSU would be able to handle a 6990 either... I suppose I could also try an ATX PSU mod wheee.gif

Yeah, the Array is small and compact compared to most mATX, but considering it's an mITX cube it's ginormous. Room for six 3.5" HDDs in front of the mobo. I'd rather get the SG05 with 1ODD, 2 HDD, and much smaller for half the price. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful case, but just not what I would look for in SFF. I'll just never have that many hard drives. Now, the Arc Mini is larger yes, but I consider anything less than ATX as SFF. And compared to other mATX tower cases, it's a beauty and has all the functions I would want from mATX.

It's really awesome. Got this marbled effect going on. I personally don't like it on the fan grill because the extra holes makes it lose the depth that gives that marbled look. Everywhere else is fricken sweet though.

I didn't initially paint the grill because of the same loss of depth you're talking about. But, after looking at the case for an hour, the grill just stuck out too much being that it was all black, so I had to paint it as well. It was really quite the eye-sore.

Ah, yeah I could see that being a problem, too. C'est la vie. Just nitpicking though, still makes me jelly.

What's the difference with the Titanium version? The added grill on the side panel?
