Also, to make it smaller for possible LAN party use. Her old system was in a Lian Li mid tower, which is just one big empty box. In fact, I could have just gotten the case and motherboard, and recycled all her old parts in this tiny case. That's how much empty space was in the big tower. With the other new parts, I estimate similar CPU performance and much improved GPU performance. Oh yeah, she was also running out of SSD space, so I vastly increased SSD capacity and ditched the HDD. CASE & PSU STATS 8.7" x 6.9" x 10.9" 222mm x 176mm x 276mm 10.8 liters in volume 3.58kg in weight for empty case with PSU 36A of +12v power Case part # SG05BB-450-USB3.0. This means SG05 case in Black inside, Black outside, with 450W PSU and USB 3.0. Yes there are versions with 300W PSU, with only Black outside or White outside, without USB 3.0. LINKS Review of case Silverstone SG05 PICS AND COMMENTARY Mobo+CPU was a combo deal from Micro Center. I also got the CPU cooler from Micro Center, though Newegg also has it. Both places also have the RAM, though I got mine from Newegg with a coupon code. Bought a new case for her new build. Had an older one used for a LAN rig, but Amazon has this case for $125 shipped with the 450W PSU. Plus, black on black is teh sexy. The old one has too much silver showing through the vents. Motherboard with RAM, CPU and cooler installed. The cooler is a Logisys Theta 31. It is similar to the stock Intel quad core cooler in that it uses a PWM fan (albeit at higher RPMs), is a radial aluminum design and has a copper core. It improves on the Intel stock coolers in three ways. First is the fan is a higher RPM unit (which means you need to really reduce fan speeds in BIOS, but it can ramp up higher). Second is the heatsink is significantly taller than the Intel cooler. Think of what the old Core 2 Quads came with, not the tiny ones with the Core i5. Third is that it comes with a backplate and is a bolt down design. I figured it was worth $16, and I was right. The CPU is overclocked to 4.2GHz with a negative voltage offset (thus undervolted). I figure it is close enough in performance to the 2500K at 4.5GHz. OCCT pegs temps at mid 80's ºC. Acceptable, since it spends time web browsing and playing games at much lower temps, and will probably never be stability tested again. Graphics card in all its shortness, next to the slim optical drive. I don't know why other cards aren't released this short (including the GTX 670). The cable is the slim optical drive adapter. Silverstone continues to be retarded in not including the proper power connector for slim optical drives. Antec and In Win manages that feat just fine with their cases that use slim optical drives. Graphics card side sans card. One SSD in the 2.5" drive bay. Two SSDs in a 3.5" adapter. Cables are unavoidable. I did run some wires underneath the motherboard. Really, it looks worse than it is. Other side showing the four SATA cables nicely routed, and the unavoidable USB 3.0 cable. Close-up of the SATA cable routing. Graphics card installed. Wow, leaves a lot of space in such a tiny case.
