What are you thoughs on the SN45G? Seems to be quite popular.
Do you think it would house this system without overheating? Being that i'm on an "nothing to spend except what I get from selling what I don't use from my current system" budget I really want to use as much of my current rig as possible. These are what I'd me moving over, hopefully.
xp2500 (would 200x10.5 be posssible with the SFF?)

120gig WD SE
Here is my problem, my r9700 has a heatpipe cooler on it and is bulky. Anyone who has this PC, could you give me a measurement from the middle of the agp slot to the side of the case? So I can get an idea if I would need different cooling on my radeon? I don't really plan on using the PCI slot anyway.
I'm sorry if I come off as a complete newbie (I am). Any info will be greatly appreciated!! The TR article on the SN45G was VERY helpful too.

I don't really feel too well about leaving part of the heatpipe exposed outside of the case like that becasue this is going to be a LANing rig along with being toted between the dorm and home and the such.
I guess I could get some sort of other cooling for it. I'm looking at this Vantec ICEBERG 4 cooler now. The reviews claim it's good. But I seen no mention of how quiet it is. The fan runs at 6000RPM...
It says it's about 15mm high, do you guys with the SN45G think it will fit?
Or do you reccomend something else as a cooler?
