indeed but unfortunately fuglyness as well
that $30 is insignificant, i be happy to pay triple for a premium case.Originally Posted by Kokin
Let's be realistic guys, for the $30 target price, it's not budgeted to be any where near premium.
Also, everyone says how ugly Subarus are, but then everyone starts to like them after a while. I feel like this case would be similar to that, especially if that $30 does come to reality.
it just screams "gamer" now rather then the subtle and sleek look it hadOriginally Posted by Kokin
Ah, I would love this as a budget case. If you really want a premium case, you should get a CaseLabs case.
In terms of Silverstone aesthetics, I agree that it has gone downhill for their recent stuff. But their main goal is usually functionality and airflow, which still seems to be on top compared to the other brands.
for the SG13 idk but for the sg05 which almost identical to the sg13 has some front PSU mods
lol its called the SG08, just a tad longer but then you can also have those long GPUsOriginally Posted by darealist
Silverstone needs to make an official case with this style. Dat superior CPU and GPU cooling. No need to settle for annoying pump noise water toys.
but... would you trust your rig with baggage handlers?Originally Posted by Anusha
It would be troublesome to explain it to the officials (at some airports) if you are hand carrying it. Checked-in luggage shouldn't be a problem.
how bad is it if you leave the PSU competing air with the CPU when using stock cooler?Originally Posted by Anusha
If you are using the stock Intel cooler, you probably want the PSU sucking cool air from the top. Otherwise the CPU fan and PSU fan will compete against each other.
In such a scenario, I'd assume you will have a hard time getting the heat of the video card out if it doesn't employ a blower style cooler.
Basically, if you want the Intel cooler, get a graphics card with a blower style cooler that exhausts most of the hot air out of the case.
Note: this is a theoretic answer. Could be different in practice. So if someone has practical experience and my claims are false, please feel free to point them out.
not sure about the MSI but the gigabyte G1 version should fit fineOriginally Posted by Suspended
Can I fit MSI RADEON R9 390 TwinfozrV in SG13 ?
Waiting for your replies.
you do get a tad more clearance only because the SFX adapter plate offsets the PSU in such a way it doesnt maximize clearance.Originally Posted by perkunas
I am looking into building a system in this case and I was wondering, does using sfx-l psu allows for a higher cpu cooler?
The height difference between a standard ATX (86mm) and SFX-l (63.5mm) is 22.5mm, which would increase the 61mm limit of cpu cooler height substantially and certainly open up some options.
oh never realized silverstone made the PP08 which is essentially a custom off set bracket rather then shove the SFX smack right in the middle of the PSU cavity. at the end of the day its just businessOriginally Posted by perkunas
I looked into the bracket that is provided with the SX500-LG and also the PP08, and it seems like the latter offers more clearance. Great way to make more money, silverstone. Like you said, just might as well make a custom one, it's basically just a metal plate.
Since I'm going with an i5-6500, at least at the beginning I'll use the stock cooler, which should be fine since I'm not overclocking.
you would be fine leaving it in the case, i had my case dropped once with all the guts in it while it was still attached with cables and it even landed on the cabled rear first to the groundOriginally Posted by Jowersman
Would anyone recommend traveling with the GPU installed in the case? If not is there a traveling case for GPUs? Thanks!
