no, no bracket needed.
sweet job breh. was the 1080 a struggle for clearance towards the front of the case?
5c drops across the system under load during games. highly recommended addition.
yes, a 120mm fan. it doesn't affect how the card fits.
It's the 277mm version. Both cards fit either way, it was somewhere on the SG13 thread on overclock.net
Just the 4G - the LE is the green one I think.
Front fan as intake as the case is designed for positive air flow. I flipped the PSU to face upwards because I didn't want it to compete for air against the CPU cooler. An AIO water cooler is only useful if you had an overclocked CPU, or are really concerned with temps.

Yes, but you should research on overclock.net for that specific build. I think it fits but not 100% sure of clearance
Temps are fine. For extra insurance get an intake fan in the front.
It'll definitely fit but I don't know how much clearance you would have between the CPU cooler vertically and also the drive mount plate against the modular cable connections. If you can, you should save up to get the SFX PSU only because it'll save you a lot of hassle with cable management and give you some adequate breathing space for air flow.
Which model PSU are you getting?
it depends which ATX PSU. I've seen Linus from Tech Tips put in a large 750W Corsair modular PSU. The video is on youtube if you search 'epic titan sg13'.
:D temperatures are bad though. Might need to get a front fan and possible water cool the CPU.
Sort of. I had to take off the front panel and reverse the card in from the front, but after that it was all good. You'd be surprised as to how well it fits in this case.
Thanks dude, appreciate the lovin'!
Yep, I have plans to move to another place in the future so I don't want a big rig. Having a small setup reduces the load a bit. I just also like having more desk space.
Thanks dude! I put it off for ages until I couldn't stand gaming on my Macbook Air anymore.
Just added :)
Thanks! I like it a lot too. Just added some inside photos but I'm not really that good of a photographer.
I took it with the Sony RX100. The PC is great and I've had lots of fun gaming on it. The temperatures are ok but could definitely use more cold air intake.
Yeah I know haha. The recommendation was to get a blower style card that would shuttle the hot air out but I just loved the MSI GTX 970 design too much.
Nice build dude.
Hey we have the same case! Cool build :)
