Actually, my PSU is Silverstone's fully modular SFX 650 Watt, but the site didn't show this model, so I chose closer 600 Watt model.
Any chance you can report on thermals? I've been a lurking on the sff builds here for what seems like forever. I think I might be finally ready to make the plunge. I don't love the look of the SG13, but I think as my first ever pc build, it's what I'm going to end up going with. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Well, I haven't tested this build in hard work yet, because still experimenting with Hackintosh installations (which was successful, by the way :), so installing and uninstalling various OSs. But when idle, motherboard temp shows around 35C, the CPU temp around 50-55C. I don't know whether this is OK, but I am afraid I have made a mistake by applying extra thermal paste to my CPU, even-though Maelstrom AIO cooler had its own layer of paste (I am not that experienced :/ to figure it out ahead).
Again, when idle it is very-very silent, but I know that with only 1 fan it WILL make sound in heavy load. Now I am thinking how I can add one more fan to right side of the chassis - I feel it can fit it.
And last, about the LOOK. You might be right that SG13 is not the highest quality produces case, but the look is pretty sexy once you build it, especially if your motherboard and fans have some RGB, which will be seen through the mesh of the case. When I was buying this case some other taller but thinner cases were available, but now in retrospect I think I made the right choice, because it seems I wouldn't be able to fit all what I have now to those cases. Verdict - absolutely go for it! Good luck! ;)
