Anyone who's looking to build in the SG08 in the near future: remember to make up your mind completely on the CPU/cooler/motherboard/RAM combo before placing the motherboard in its eternal resting place. It's a real pain to change anything once you're done. A lot of SFF cases cannot accommodate a CPU cooler backplate cutout, but the SG08 goes a step further. Unless you are going solid-state only by duct taping it to the top of the PUS, as well as using either the ST45SF-G or SX600-G, it's going to be very hard to fiddle with the motherboard and the cooler components; just getting the board in and out is a pain. The PSU area frame has a protrusion over the motherboard, supposedly to connect with the hard drive cage, which also limits the space over the motherboard.

My two rigs are swapping places because I want more power to be in the SG08 and both to eventually go ITX (with SG08 in either a Mercury S3/Nova X2 and the Mini R2 in a smaller HTPC case), so I went and switched the 4160 and 4790K today. It should've been a simple switcheroo, but no, since the U9B goes wherever the i7 goes, with the stock cooler being too weak to handle the beefier CPU. Since the SG08 rig initially had the stock cooler over the i3-4160, it took a lot of wrestling to get the U9B and SecuFirm seated. I was also unable to swap the R7 265 and R9 280X as I initially wished; the SG08 can accommodate long cards and ones that are slightly more than 2 slots, but is very picky regarding cards that are taller than the PCIe bracket, because the annoying internal power cord extension gets in the way.

This slot does indeed go in to the PSU, it cut the PSU temps in half they had to be ATLEAST 90c the caps inside are rated for 105c and they all bulged and leaking. likely not purely due to temps but, also age. it was so hot the out case cover was warm to the touch and the air coming out was rather warm. now only luke war air comes out the slot the is right in front of one of the internal PSU heat sinks so think that is why it helps so well.
i found where that black missing screw i forgot to reinstall goes! biggrin.gif i also need a VGA cover for the old VGA connector.

i just need a GT 730 or GTX 750 Ti, also wanna embed the wireless controller receiver. cpu never seems to go about high 40s or 50c tops. HDD never really seems to get more than luke warm.

Is that a Dell Optiplex 755? Nice mods BTW

indeed it is. if i could just get a 750 ti in it and further reduce GPU temps it'd be golden.

Thanks Wanou...

I am having another hadron chassis painted in an auto paint and installing the faceplate above wich is a anodized brushed aluminium. The hole is for a RGB antivandal switch.

Where can you get RGB vandal switches from? I've only ever seen dual LED ones.
