Beastly SB Rig, Need GPU

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
hey guys,

I have finally decided to switch to a mini itx gaming rig. I already have a Silverstone SG05 case with the 450w psu, 4GB ddr3 and a Corsair H50. I am looking to get the following before Monday:
Gigabyte ITX Board - £87.20
i5 2500k - £155.99

I was just looking at going for the MSI Twin Frozr 560 Ti for £179.99 but a quick google looks like it dumps alot of heat back into the case. The most I can stretch to is £200 for the GPU so can someone recommend a cool, quiet GPU which will fit the SG05 (9.5" max) which dumps the heat out of the case through the back. I don't mind ATI or NVidia. It also needs to be around the same power draw as the 560 as I only have a 450w psu to work with. Also if it has the power connectors on the top it would be a bonus .

Anyone got any ideas?

because of the gpu orientation and side venting, and the fact that the PCB on the GPU is blocking a lot of that heat from dumping over to the other components, Id actually recommend the twin frozr. with a fresh supply of air from the side vent it should run cooler and quieter than reference coolers. and if anything I bet that will keep the rest of the setup cooler

Sli GTS 450 comes to mind, low heat, power and should be able to get 2 with 200£

It would be cool to see it through the side. These coolers do cool very well but it would still allow heat to spill over. I still feel it would be fine but if you really want it as cool as possible you could get a standard looking cooler instead for peace of mind. Just wont look as awesome...

evgas ee versions should be great for you, they dumb all of the hot air outside the case

Yeah an EE card would probably be the best choice, although I don't think a TF2 card will cause problems either.

Silverstones have good ventilation for HTPC cases, and you have an H50 so I doubt temps will be an issue either way.

The twin frozr is not a good choice for a sugo 05 build unless you create exhaust holes near the front fan where most of the heat will be expelled. EE cards are nice, but they will still run hot and loud.

I'd recommend going for a reference GTX560 Ti (or GTX460) such as the sparkle model (which I have and love) - it still vents heat out the end of the PCB (away from the PCIE expansion slots), but less so. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814187136

Also keep in mind that some ST45SF units experience issues under moderate loads. My first one was flawless with an i7 860 + GTX460, but my second one couldn't handle an i3 550 and HD6850 without chirping and causing performance issues.

Imho, on the Sugo SG05/06, you should be fine with graphics cards that dump heat "inside the case" instead of exhausting out back. If you analyze the design of the case, there are vents on the side exactly where the graphics card is located. It's not dumping heat inside the case but exhausting it out of a very large area (basically the whole left side). That's one reason I went with the reference cooler on my GTX 460 instead of one of those external exhaust (EE) models.

You can't think of the Sugo SG05/06 in the same vein as traditional microATX or full ATX cases.

Well my i5 760 gets near 70c sometimes so I wouldn't put a graphic card in there that didnt have the warm air going out

so some are saying twin frozr and others saying evga ee...
Right now I'm looking at this
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/gigab...ck-950mhz-core
Anyone know where this dumps the air?

Or how about this evga?
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-e...vi-i-mini-hdmi

Btw anyone have any experience with evga, gigabyte or msi for rma's?
