Nice build, with a little bit of room for improvement. You already found the main flaws yourself. I probably would have picked a different case, but that is something personal.

i wanted the sg10b, because it looks nicer, but i found it difficult to justify $20 for changing the front.

I chose the 600w ps because it was 140mm instead of 160mm, which helped a lot. I could have chosen an 160mm ps and gotten a short power cable kit though.

+1 nice build but I think even though the SG09 is maybe the smallest microatx case, It's a little overpriced

Decent build mate! Dual channel memory kit would have been better, but the cost of a decent memory kit is ridiculous these days!! Where in aus did you purchase these components?

I accidentally ordered the wrong memory, it was $2 extra for DDR3-1600 dual kit. But in real world performance there is negligible difference between DDR3-1600 dual kit and DDR3-1300 single kit. Even in benchmarks it looked like a <2% performance difference.
