NCASE M1 - 185 + shipping / tax
240 x 160 x 328mm

DAN A4-SFX 200-230 + shipping / tax
205 x 112 x 327mm

Really not much smaller, but means no slot load optical drive and no radiator or otherwise larger than stock coolers... 40mm give or take a few on height and width, but other than that... I think I'd prefer to have the option for a better cpu cooler ( though I use an external rad box anyways, but finding a spot for passthrough quick disconnects on the A4... )

True, but I'm not ready to do watercooling yet. The only reason I'd go a little larger is if I could use full-size ATX supplies, but I can't do that with either, so for my plans I like the supertiny one. thumb.gif

It is what it is.

False, the M1 allows you to use an ATX PSU in the front. Makes for interesting setups with tower coolers, no need for watercooling at all.

I personally think the A4 is a huge step downward, though, it's close to half the volume of the M1.

According to the website:
Quote:
ATX PSU support is possible using the included bracket with the following limitations:
- Cannot be used with GPUs over 195mm long.
- Cannot be used with the dual 3.5" HDD cage or 240mm radiator mounted to the side bracket (120mm radiator is still possible over the motherboard area)

I have a reference GTX-780, so I'd be restricted to SFX powersupplies with the M1 as well. All I lose with the A4 is the 120mm radiator and tower cooler options.

It is what it is.

I got tired of waiting for my ideal case with a handle so I'm going to mod a handle on my SG05.

The plan is to attach it on rear since I don't think the top panel can support the weight.
The easiest way is to drill 2 holes and add the handle between the motherboard and psu.


I've found a handle that's just under 12cm. The screw holes are 100cm apart. Gonna start testing where to mount the handle for the best weight balance.


I've decided to add the handle on the rear so its more discreet.
Marked where to drill the holes


bolts I will be using

Holes

Finished




The back plate is actually sturdy enough to support the weight from being carried around unless you swing it around as a weapon.
I forgot to weight it on a scale but currently it houses a standard m-itx system, a 2.5" hdd, a H80i with a delta fan, and a short length gpu.

Why do people insidt on a handle? I cradle mine like a baby. Hold it close to my body.

Because cradling takes two hands and a handle takes one.

What's funny though is when I was doing LANs a bit ago, I could fit my SG05 + monitor + keyboard + mouse + headphones in my backpack with 2 full changes of clothes, toiletries and my Macbook air with no problem. A handle on a case is just... not needed.

Also, Silverstone even makes a bag for the Sugo series of cases; http://silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=32&area=en
