    Q's To Sugo SG03 Owners, Thank You

    Hiya folks,

    I'm looking at purchasing a Sugo SG03B for a build and was wondering what you folks have on temps in regards to the CPU (please post details of what CPU) at idle/load and HDD's.

    Is airflow a problem in your system, again specs would help.

    I am looking at putting in a E4500 into a spare Gigabyte G31M-ES2L for the time being and overclocking it to ~2.93GHz with 1066MHz bus possibly with a standard Intel heatsink (not a big overclock, I know), using 2Gb of DDR2-5300 Ballistix I have.
    Also there will be the LG GGW-H20L (will be going into a HTPC later) as the optical and a WD 320GB hard drive. Oh yeah, PSU will be the Corsair CX400W.

    Would appreciate all pointers/notes/flaws, anything you think I've missed/not aware of please fire away, thanks.

    Hi there, I will PM you a link with lots of info in a min.

    Anyway, I have a SG03, but its empty atm as I plan to build it in October. I have 2x Noctua P12 fans at the front, I have turned these on and the airflow in the empty case it’s very impressive – goes everywhere inside the case and comes out the rear nicely. I can’t wait to build it.

    Many people are getting a Corsair H50 for the CPU, which is what I also plan to do, but for your setup you could do with a Scythe Shuriken, it’s small and quiet.

    I would strongly suggest a modular PSU, it’s a very small case, and if you have lots of cables everywhere it disturbs the airflow.

    I can’t see any flaws in the case that are not in every other SFF, i.e. limited space to work with.

    I'm also looking at using this case for a new build in October/November, with an i5 system. My plan so far is to use the H5O at the front if it clears the graphics card, and maybe leave the DVD drive out and fit a 120.2 rad at the top to cool the graphics card.

    Got the case last week, unfortunately haven't had the time to open the box properly to have look inside never mind building it, anyway also waiting for a RMA hard drive to be delivered.

    Just to reassure you, you won't have any problems with keeping the CPU cool due to case airflow.

    I have two Noctua NF-P12 case fans mounted at the front using the U.L.N.A. leads. The CPU is passively cooled, with the PSU pulling air over the heat sink fins.

    Idle my E8400 runs at 29-32 °C. Will report back after Prime95 has finished for load temperature.

    Edit: Performing Prime95 In-place large FFT's test the maximum temperature was 45°C on second core. That was during 1024K prime cycle. Temperature remained the same and stable during 896K test so I ended it.

    Re: Q's To Sugo SG03 Owners, Thank You

    I'm also planning on a new build in a SG03. Phenom X3 720 BE, using onboard audio and GFX, 1 x 500GB Samsung F3 HDD and a DVD burner. I can't decide between an Enermax MODU82+ 525W or a Corsair HX 450W... I think that 450W would be enough, and it saves some £££, but the 525W might be needed if I decide to install dedicated GFX (eg ATI 5850 or nVidia equivalent) at a later date. Thoughts?

    I think that this is going to be low on heat, especially while using onboard GFX, so I'm not too worried about cooling... am I being naive?

    I've noted that many people use a passive CPU cooler, but I was eyeing up the Scythe Shuriken BIG... what do you guys think? H50 is out of budget.

    I'd be interested to hear how all your new builds go!

    350w PSU is enough.

    Im going with a Modu82+ 425, with a 4770 and core i5. Roll on end of October.

    I built a server in this case slightly modding it to add a 2.5" OS drive & ended up with 2 1Tb drives in the bottom.

    With a modular PSU was easier but as always the need to think carefully about cable routing and assembling things outside first is important.

    Some pics on the original build thread http://www.avforums.com/forums/deskt...ml#post7069376 so you can see it's a tight squeeze
