    Re: Silverstone Sugo SG06 ITX build

    Had a look at the Bulldozer thread... they do seem nice.

    But waiting for a AM3+ ITX mobo might be sometime.

    Meantime Ill upgrade my SN25P to SB

    Didnt realise it was an 6870 you managed to fit in the chassis.

    Im doing an SG05 build (awaiting Zotac OC board) and though the SG05/06 could only take a card up to 9in long. 6870 is ~10.5in ?

    If thats the case, Ill be able to fit in a 570 card rather than the 560 Ti I planned.

    Clean build with a CPU upgrade path.

    The reference 6870 I have is about 10” long, a 10.5” card may fit and if it does it’ll be a very tight fit. Any card over 10” will only fit if the power connectors are on the top of the card (looking from the side).

    Re: Silverstone Sugo SG06 ITX build

    Update – installed a new CPU heatsink today.

    I did a bit of research to find the biggest CPU heatsink I could possibly fit in my SG06, there were many candidates such as the Scythe Big Shuriken and Noctua AXP-140 but the Coolermaster Geminii looked like the winner for its large size and shape, I can install it so it sits closer to the front fan. In retrospect I would have gone for the AXP-140 since it's about as big but would have fit without any modding.

    To my disappointment, the CM Geminii was discontinued a while ago, although still available in some places its Intel supports only goes as far as socket 775. Also discontinued and quite difficult to find is the CM Intel retention bracket set which extents support for some CM coolers to Intel’s sockets 1156 and 1366, this bracket set doesn’t mention support for the Geminii but was confirmed to fit here.

    Another disappointment was the lack of Sandy Bridge boards which have a CPU socket in the middle – as opposed to the CPU socket being right next to the PCI-E and memory slots like my H67N. Since most large coolers wouldn’t fit without any modding, I might as well go for the larger Geminii and see what I could do with it.




    It's a pretty large cooler, much lighter than most tower coolers but takes up alot of space.




    Fortunately my measurements were correct and the cooler just about clears the memory!




    Clearly I can’t have the stock Geminii and a graphics card installed at the same time.




    Cutting heatpipes is a bad idea, they leak and become useless. But, heatpies can be bent! Inspired by this. Bending the Geminii was simple but required a lot of elbow grease.






    My bending wasn't precise and the heatsink ended up encroaching the PSU, they would both fit and I'm sure it would work but I wasn't comfortable with the two against each other.




    Aluminium fins I can cut so I broke out the rotary tool and cut back an area of the folder Geminii which was against the PSU, while I was at it; I cut away the bit which holds the fins together at the front to improve air flow.




    Putting everything back together. I also replaced the Silverstone fan that came with the case and replaced it with a Scythe Slipstream 1600RPM running at 8v.










    Idles and loads about 10°C cooler with the added bonus of being passive, awesome.

    That cooler looks REALLLY close to the PCB of the gfx card, too close for comfort if it was mine..unless its just the pictures ?

    There's about a 4mm gap between the cooler and graphics card, as a precaution I pushed the two together with some considerable force but there was no movement.

    Nice build mate, like it.

    It's good to see a 6870 fits in there, I've running an SG05 with 300w PSU thinking of upgrading to the 450w (i5 2400 and GTX 460). Can you confirm the noise levels from the PSU? Nothing scientific, just how loud is seems.

    I miss being totally small computing, I've got a great hulking ATX on my desk now, just need to either go mATX and FT03 or wait for an AM3+ ITX, which doesn't cost silly amounts (I know there is one but it uses SO-DIMM...)

    The PSU is almost silent but gets a bit noisy when heavily loaded, although completely drowned out by the HD 6870 fan.

    Re: Silverstone Sugo SG06 ITX build

    Great to see the Gemini II make an appearance instead of Corsair H50 and clones.

    I hope to re-use my EnzoTech Extreme-X if I get a Sugo 05/06, but going by the dimensions it too would collide with graphics card on that motherboard with a 2.8cm overhand of heatpipes going to fins.

    Wish Silverstone were more like Lian-Li and released other colours besides black for the 450W model.

    Nice build, I have the SG05 for my lan media box, would love to go ITX but could not live with onboard sound.

    Not a fan of onboard sound myself, the H67 board I have is a stop gap as I wait for AMD's BD, when I eventually upgrade to BD or another Intel chip plus a Z68 board; I'll go for a board with a mini PCIe slot so I could use one of these to install a x1 PCIe soundcard internally, it will require some modding but I reckon I can cram in a sound card somewhere.

    For now I'm using an EMU 0204 USB audio interface, awesome sound but lacks the bells and whistles of a gaming sound card and somewhat defeats the point of having a small and portable ITX system.
