last post 1 week 1 dat ago...blasphemy! :O

I'll break the silence: I'm building a little cute rig (link) and it happens to be in need a small form factor case........ It's my first so yeah, I would really appreciate a nice recommendation for my kind of build, if you need any info, just feel free to ask ! biggrin.gif


note: forgot tot ell that my thread formats are totally banged up and are being ignored, so i'm afraid you'll have to read it this way, a moderator requested to not edit it again until it's fixed

I present unto you a challenge OCN! Help me downsize the hell out of my PC!

Things I want to keep:

2500k
580
Ram
Hard-Drive
Optical Drive

If possible, but will go and downsize if needed:
Power Supply
Sound Card (Might sell anyway, replace with a cheaper variant)
Corsair H60

Obviously going:
Motherboard
Case

Would it be worth it? I can easily get 300 or more if I were to sell my motherboard, case, powersupply, cooler and sound card. Better question is would it even be worth it and could I reacquire everything to have my PC back up and running on 300 bucks? It's starting to look neigh impossible to be honest because the only cases I want would be almost 200 alone.

yah but that case comes with it's own powersupply:D (if you are thinking about the SG07/SG08)

what is the purpose of your downsize? portability or space concerns? or simple vanity reasons? how small do you need it and how big of a deal breaker is the optical drive? would you consider external optical drive? or are you downsizing for portability reasons? do you REALLY need a discreet sound card? what kind of sound system do you have hooked up to your system right now? also the H60 might be a really tight fit if you want to go really small.

given your current requirements, the TJ08-E or the arc mini might fit your purpose. however if you want even smaller, you need to cough up the optical drive(unless you can find budget for a slim optical drive), discreet sound card, and maybe the H60. personally I like the TJ08-E for its 180mm fan and reversed mobo mount.

Yes, the SG07!

Portability and space, but I'd be lying if I said the vanity part wasn't assisting in it. I just want an optical drive because for the few games I buy physical- it's much more convenient to have one built it. For the soundcard, I sometimes run the digital out to the TV sound system (5.1 set). Unless the motherboard I replace it with has one. The H60 can go if need be, as I said I'm more than willing to make compromises on the things I mentioned above.

Runs to the patent office...

Also, if this was to go large scale, you would easily get one of those laser projected keyboards integrated in to it with a small sliding panel that pops out with a soft surface on it for typing pleasure that has tiny bumps where the keys show up.

on your budget the SG07 may be a stretch. the case cost $200, the only real salvage part from your old machine would be the CPU, RAM, and HDD. everything else really needs to be replaced. the sound card, you can stay with the onboard audio since all ITX boards come with HD audio(primary market for ITX is the HTPC market afterall). it's not the best quality sound, but unless you have an awesome stereo system hooked up to it,(or have a very well trained ear) you wont really hear much difference anyway.

so the parts you'll need you want in on the SG07:
mobo, obviously you'll need a ITX board:D
AXP140, the H60 wouldn't fit if you intend to keep the AP181 case fan. I would strongly recommend you keep the ap181 and get a AXP140 and run that on passive.
slim optical, i would consider this optional since external optical makes much more sense in modern day computing
SSD, even a small 60 gig SSD would make a world of difference for your computing experience. I can't honestly suggest any modern build w/o one.

IF you decide to keep your $300 budget, then I would definitely suggest the TJ08-E for overall performance, flexibility, as well as good looks. it's not THAT big, however, you will need to replace your mobo and powersupply since they are both too big for that case. the arc miNi will fit your powersupply, however it's also a bigger case and IMO doesn't look as good or have as good of a cooling capacity w/o aftermarket fans.
