    Maybe I'll try to lower the clock speed once it's inside the new Silverstone case, see what happens.

    Say, just wondering, could a decent single slot GPU work in my PC-TU100?
    Sacrificing power for form factor? Bit of an odd move.

    @Razz Crap. Time to ditch this case then :( Really want to keep a mini-ITX enclosure though, any suggestions?
    The Sugo SG07 or from that range. SilverStone. I built one and it houses full length cards no issue.

    @Dirtbox Rest assured, I definitely won't be replacing the 760 with something else, that card's perfect for what I need. But I think I'm going to keep the PC-TU100 and use it for a budget build in the future for which I might consider a single slot card. Just a thought.

    @Widge Bought a SG05 Lite yesterday ;)

    Whilst waiting for my new case to arrive I decided to take out the GPU and do a little CPU test with RealTemp. Here are the results. I'm a complete noob when it comes to stuff like this so... Are these results good or bad?

    They're fine, the rule of thumb is if it goes over 80 degrees, it needs better cooling.

    Alright, so I shouldn't worry about these results either? These are from the very first system I built which is a little over a year old now (i5 3570K with Scythe Big Shuriken II Rev. B).

    This fellow had same problem and fixed it with additional low profile fan on bottom of case, fitting perfectly under the GPU fan. See page 2 of link.

    The GPU's power connector was an absolute bitch to fit. As you can see on Final Build (Left Side), the ODD's bay is pushing quite hard on the connector... I might want to redo that section.

    Cool, how are the noise levels?

    @Armoured_Bear Truly whisper quiet, I'm happy to say!

    @Moot_Point Yes, I'm quite fond of SFF builds... Although I do realise it makes it much more of a chore to build.

    @-cerberus- I am more worried about heat dissipation to be fair. Even though Dirtbox's case sounds like a house, I bet he has far less problems down to excessive heat build up.

    @Armoured_Bear I'm guessing SpeedFan is a program that monitors fan speed & noise levels? I'll look into it.

    @Moot_Point You may be right but, so far, I didn't run into any problems. Played around fifteen minutes of Alan Wake's American Nightmare on max settings. This couldn't be done with the components inside of the previous case (Lian Li PC-TU100).

    Yep, you can setup your own heat/fan speed profiles to keep it as quiet as possible, it's great and free.

    Speedfan temperature values can sometimes be off though depending on motherboard so maybe use a couple of things to monitor such CoreTemp or RealTemp aswell.

    Speedfan reports my CPU temp at 85-90 while the other two put it at 35-40 which roughly matches the bios temperature reading.

    Ha. Looks like it's been chopped off. Is that GPU fan right up against the side of the case, when it's all closed up? Looks tight in there.

    Ah no worries, there's a good bit of clearance; just a little over 1cm.

    Why did you replace the front fan with a noctua, or is that what it came with? Guess that's the pwm one?

    Do you think the short/flat modular cable kit would be a good idea with that? (pp05-e)

    http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=438

    Does the MSI itx 760 fan have pretty good ventilation with the side case grill holes matching up to where it is?

    I'm likely doing a similar sg05 build after likewise giving up on dream of tu100a (but before buying it).
    I think I'm going to do it without any 3.5 inch or optical drive though.

    So er, you did the exact same thing again?

    Really?

    Are there at least any vents in the case side directly where the GPU's fan points?

    No, certainly not the exact same thing. With this new case, the motherboard is mounted horizontally with the GPU positioned vertically on top, right next to an area full of venting holes with nothing in front of the card so it gets plenty of fresh air. Temps are fine, everything runs great :) Very happy with this build.

    @benwah No, the SG05 comes with a Silverstone intake fan but I replaced it with a Noctua NF-S12A PWM because I simply wanted to try out Noctua products with my second build (I used Antec True Quiet Pro's in my first build). :)

    Yes, I'd highly recommend getting that cable set. In fact, I think I'll order one myself.

    Yes, the ITX 760 has plenty of ventilation in the SG05; I've been playing fairly demanding games for the past few hours with no overheating or other issues.

    If you plan on doing a TU100 build without an ODD, you could mount your 2.5 inch SSD or HDD inside of the TU100's ODD bay - yes, there are mounting holes made especially for exactly one 2.5 inch storage disk in there.

    I have a so ulnar build with a coolermaster elite 120. i7 2600k, GTX 670 but I got a mount so I can water cool the card with an antec CPU cooler. Means I can position the fan anywhere in the case!
