No, not that I know of

And trust me, I have tried looking long and hard for one the replace this SG02-F I have, but nothing is this small, and this priced


Actually... none are this small to begin with, lol.

There are a few thermaltakes? Apevia? lanboxex at fry's for 10-20usd more, but they are about 2-3inches taller than this case.

PLAN:



This is the way I will lay things out on the board if I decide to do the mini build, there are benefits of being able to mount the card on the bottom PCI-E x16 slot of this motherboard. The benefits include not covering up the CMOS battery, ClrCmos pins and the ability to have 2 open PCI-E slots for add on cards. The only disappointing things about this board is that there is no int. ClrCmos and Power Button on board, and that it only has a 4 pin CPU power. These are things I can live without because I don't OC much, and you can get switches for ClrCmos on Power.


Case:SUGO SG02-BF, because of price. Someone has said it has sharp edges, but even my Antec 902 cut me, so its no big deal.

That is a killer mobo. My next upgrade for sure. You should bring that beast over to our WA LAN in August!

Is the SG04 or SG03 good? What is the difference between them? Also, it is smaller than a p180 mini right?? I was looking at moving my current rig over with a new matx motherboard and two 5850s. It looks like both of them have two 120mm fans so cooling should be good. I would cool CPU with h50 mounted where the fans were.

SG03: 12.28" x 7.87" x 14.17"
SG04: 13.66" x 7.87" x 14.17"
P180: 17.20" x 8.30" x 17.10"

Can't really speak for the SG03/4; never worked with it, but they both look nearly identical (internally) save for some extra space in the 04 I'd guess.

PLAN MATX:



This is the way I will lay things out on the board if I decide to do the mini build, there are benefits of being able to mount the card on the bottom PCI-E x16 slot of this motherboard. The benefits include not covering up the CMOS battery, ClrCmos pins and the ability to have 2 open PCI-E slots for add on cards. The only disappointing things about this board is that there is no int. ClrCmos and Power Button on board, and that it only has a 4 pin CPU power. These are things I can live without because I don't OC much, and you can get switches for ClrCmos on Power. There is also complaints about the BIOS on this board being horrible for overclocking, but again I don't need a really nice BIOS or high overclock. If I go SFF, I have to make some sacrifices.


Case:SUGO SG02-BF, because of price. Someone has said it has sharp edges, but even my Antec 902 cut me, so its no big deal. I also plan to add some 80mm fans into the case, I have a Yate Loon sitting around somewhere.

What i'd plan to buy:



I am hoping to get the 5770 to overclock well enough to have near 5850 performance. MSI's warranty scares me, but I figure what the heck, every other ATI partner has the same kind of warranties. I was looking at getting a C3 Athlon II X4, but I decided to save $20 because its not necessary. I chose the Blackline simply for aesthetic reasons.



Plan ATX:

What i'd plan to buy:

The 890GPA-UD3H is full ATX but the second PCI-E slot only has x8 connections, so if I want optimal performance, putting my video card in the second PCI-E slot is out of the question. On the upside it has a 8 pin CPU power connector and its Gigabyte quality (ATX was also an upside) Another downside would be that I would have to use the Elite 360 RC case, I personally own one, it has decent cooling, but the case feels cheap and flex's and reshapes extremely easy, not to mention it has its own custom plastic mounting kit, which is also very cheap. I just don't know if I should sacrifice case quality for 3 more usable expansion slots that most likely will never be used and slightly better cooling (2 x 120mm and 1 x 80mm vs 3 x 80mm)




The Question:Which one should I go with?? Personal opinions? Vote here
