Description

This little case is amazing! I'm a small form factor enthusiast and my goal was to build the best pc for what I do. The Silverstone SG13 was very attractive for its form factor and how much ventilation it has. I needed a case that was small but had plenty of room for a full size graphics card, water cooling, at least one 3.5 inch drive, and 2 SSD for RAID 0.

The motherboard for me was an easy choice. The Asrock z270 fatal1ty gaming itx board has a built in Thunderbolt 3 port for future pcie expandability, plenty of usb3 ports, built in wifi, and m.2 ssd support.

Although this case does support full size power supplies, I opted for the Corsair SF600. That left me with more room for other components inside the case and also gives me plenty of headroom while under load.

Water cooling was a must in this case. I opted to go with the corsair h75 for compatibility's sake but will probably switch to the Corsair h80i because it will still fit in here with a push pull config.

The PNY GeForce GTX 1080 TI was a no brainer. I went with Nvidia for its excellent compatibility with the Adobe Creative Suite.

The storage needed to be fast. I chose the Samsung 512 960 pro for quick boots. As soon as the bios is done I'm near instantly in the OS. I had a coulple 500gb mSATA drives so I got some adapters and threw them in RAID 0 for a 1 TB ssd volume. And still had room left over for a future 3.5 inch drive for mass storage.

Benchmark numbers coming soon

I am also currently building in this case a second time. I love this case.

I had 2 questions, How is the noise levels with the 3.5 HDD? High vibrations? How did you install the top 120mm fan over the PSU?

I would also like to inform you that there is a full dust filter kit on amazon. here's a link! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M5APAMM/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_x_Z888ybV97TTE9

Sorry my man for the late reply but the hard drive is alright. Its quiet when I'm not accessing data but the heads in it are loud but ignoreable, and the top fan is literally just sitting there on the tiny psu. the only thing holding it in place is a cable tie! And its a 140mm fan btw

Where did you get the bracket for the sfx power supply to cover the extra space?

Amazing, compact, beastly build! I do have a couple of questions: How is airflow in the front with the non-mesh version of this case? Does that negatively affect CPU temps? Also, how is that fan on the top held in place and does it help significantly?
