SG13B-Q Front mount PSU, R7 1700, RX580. (stupid pic heavy)

Well, I finally did it, I pulled the trigger on a new system. It's time to retire the 2500k system.

I built a SFF system for my brother-in-law and ever since then I knew that it was going to be my next build!

So here is the parts list that I have, everything is on order.

Case: SilverStone SG13B-Q
Motherboard: ASRock AB350 Gaming-ITX
CPU: R7 1700
Memory: Patriot Viper 4 16GB 3200mhz (on tthe QVL)
Video Card: Power Color Red Devil RX580 8GB
SSD: Crucial MX300 M.2 2280 275GB
HDD: Samsung F3 1TB
PSU: Corsair CX550M (not the old CX series!)

I will be modifying the case to put the PSU in the front with power cable coming out the bottom. Then I plan to make a cover where the psu was supposed to go and mount an intake fan there.

I will be updating this thread as I go along with the build process.

And the modifications start!

I test fit the PSU into the case before I actually committed to cutting just to make sure that it will indeed fit where I wanted. I ordered the Corsair PSU because it was 10mm shorter than the Seasonic I was looking at, now that I have the PSU in there and can see how much room I have the Seasonic would have fit without issue rolleyes.gif. . .

After a little bending and tweaking here and there I was able to get the PSU tucked up front enough to clear the motherboard.

The remainder of the components will arrive today so I can finish this build up!






I 3D printed a template that would allow me to mark and drill the PSU mounting holes precisely, and then started cutting away!!!




Unibits are amazing at cutting thin sheet metal!









I had to remove the USB connectors because they hit the PSU, I guess i will 3D print myself a new face plate and move the connectors to the top.





I have been looking everywhere for a right angle low profile plug for this thing, but all I can find are inch tall right angle cables!

Curious, why go with ATX PSU? Wouldn't a SFX PSU given you more space and mounting options? Looks like your motherboard is going to be extremely close to the PSU.

I wanted 500w or more so I had room to overclock both my CPU and Video card, and all the good quality SFX PSU I found are $85+, I got the Corsair for $35. . .

It would have been nice to have the extra room from the SFX, but the ATX fits although just barely.

Assembly continued.









I had to bend the bottom flange flat to clear the graphics card. It was a very close fit!











I currently use a book to level it out untill I can get my 3d printing software installed and start working on feet and fan mounts
But i have not given up on getting a lower profile cable!

I went ahead and mounted my 1TB drive temporarley so I have access to all my 3D printing software.

Also using a book to level the system out till I can get my feet printed. lol. . . .

i managed to get a lot done this weekend.

Printed some feet to keep the case from resting on the PSU cord, which also allowed me to retire my handy leveling book.

I purchased some thin Cooler Master 80mm fans, I test fit them with a temporary mount and found some additional clearing that needed to be done. After verifying that everything would fit after some bending I designed and printed a proper fan shroud. I also found that one motherboard header can control a 3 pin fan, where the other is PWM only so its always full speed.

I spliced the 2 fans together so they would both run off of the same motherboard header that allowed speed control. I thought about ordering a Y connector, but decided to just cut it! I think it came out a little cleaner that way, but I left WAY too much heat-shrink on the connector end of the cable assembly. I might clean that up later down the road. At first I installed the fan to the wrong header, so the last set of pictures are the correct header.

Now I need to figure out what I want to do with the front of the case, extend it to fit my HDD and USB headers, or do something else.

Got a new toy! Noctua NF-F12 3000rpm.

I'm going to play with it a little, but I think this is going to be my new heat-sink fan.

It currently wont fit at all, even if I rotate the HDD sideways, so I have started drawing a new front cover for the case that will accept the 3.5" drive. I have been playing with the idea of making it hot swap-able but I'm not sure yet.

My thoughts are currently remove the stock fan on the heat-sink, build a mount that will place the F12 at the top of the case so it has access to fresh air, then print a funnel to guide the fresh air to the heat-sink.

I plan to test both airflow directions. Some people have said sucking hot air off the HS lowered all temps including VRM so I figure its worth a test to see what happens in my case.

Good stuff dude.

* what's the printer?
* how's the temps?
* where the fans move the air? out or in
* there is 90 deg power supply plug you know.
* did you get a backpack for the glories case?
* some pic in the dark for the sweet ryzen fan.

This is a refreshing post, with some skills involved.
I might just follow your steps.

Thanks!

The printer is a a cheap Anet A8 with some reinforcement to reduce frame wobble, new belts and tension system, mosfet for the heated bed, and that's about it. Super happy with the print quality that I'm able to get out of it, it produces better parts than our Taz 5 and 2 Taz 6 we have at work.

Temps on the computer are ok. If I max all the fans the CPU reaches 78° while gaming, if I use my aggressive fan curve it will hit a max of 80°. My GPU during games is dumping massive amounts of hot air into the system, when I stress the CPU and only the CPU it only hits 65° to 70°.

The current fan configuration is pulling air into the system, After I install the Noctua I might look at switching them around to exhaust the hot air. I have a couple test's I want to try to see what works best.

I am currently using a 90 degree power cord, I would like to find a low profile one that will allow the case to sit closer to the desk but every one I see online is approximately 1" tall which is what I currently have. The ones that look low profile have comments about receiving a different plug than pictured that is 1" tall.

I do have a backpack that it fits into quite nicely, I will have to take a picture, lol! I have thought about talking it on field service when I go, but don't trust the airport to not lose or damage my stuff.

When I get the system all done I will have to take some better pictures of it. Maybe I will re-purpose the Ryzen fan where it can be on display. . . Thanks for the idea!

If you do end up doing something similar and have any questions I'm more than happy to help!
