Planning SG05-450W build

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was looking at a SG07 + a 6990 but as the 6990 isn't going to be out for awhile and I get my money at the end of the month I'm going to make due with whats released.

I seen the MAX11L build which is hands down intense. I'd like to emulate that with a SG05-450W since I feel the added wattage will be perfect. The SG07 is kind of big and a little fugly IMO.

On to the build (please comment):
Gigabyte P67 ITX (even if I have to settle with a H67 now and wait, I'm OK)
Corsair H70
2x 128GB Crucial C300's
GTX 580
i7-2600K
8GB Gskill 1.5V 1600 memory
Delta 120mm fan mounted to H70 in push (with custom speed adjust)
Dremel tool

I plan on using velcro to mount the SSDs near the PSU (possibly under it). I'll need to dremel the case to make room for the GTX580 and the front cover to fit.

I may make a "end cap" removable cover to sit between the GTX580 and the front bezel to provide bump/shock resistance out of bent sheet metal. It will need to be flush with the side near the PCB padded. The last thing I want to do is smash the end of my GTX 580 during transport or falling off a desk (as it is so small). I'll also need to pad between the H70 and the GPU. I plan on using sticky foam.

Last mod would be a fan filter for the front fan and possibly Vreg/MOSFET heatsinks. I hope for a mild 4.5-4.8GHZ O/C.

I decided on a small build to help limit my budget as if I went mATX or ATX I feel I'd go overkill and never build it while waiting for parts to come out (such as Corsair's white 600T, 6990's and 595s).

just as a warning the 6990 and h70 WILL NOT FIT unless you are ready to do some serious modding to your case, GL to you sir.

Oh, I now the 6990 won't fit at all, nor will a 6970 since the GTX 580 fits just barely with a case mod. I'd go SG07 for the space and wattage I'd need for the build.

Welcome to the forums.

Found a PWM fan that moves a lot of air

I will plug the H70 into a 3 pin to molex adapter so I can auto fan speed. Harrier jet sounds during benchmarking FTW.

Does anyone have experience with Newegg returns? I keep hearing February for the 6990 release but I don't want to wait. If I were to go ahead and get a H67 ITX, SG07, 6970 and return it once the parts come out, would it be a good idea?

SG07 is pricey, but best optional for 10.5-12 inch GPU card and H50 or 70 without modify/Modded.

Good luck..

They charge a 15% restocking fee, plus you have to pay for shipping both ways (or one way if you got free shipping to you). They do this to prevent people from "borrowing" hardware.
