SG13 Front PSU Mod

The Silverstone SG13 used to be the go-to SFF PC case for newcomers, and I was one of them. The case itself is not really great for air cooling components as it is optimized for AIO, and not many can afford that.

My mod is one of the more common mods for this case, which is to mount the SFX PSU at the front part of the case. This creates more room for larger coolers to be fitted into the case, but along with this comes several other caveats. Read the captions on the pictures for my step-by-step process of making this mod!

Ultimately, this front PSU mod helps to reduce the temps of my system despite not really changing any parts due to (I assume) better airflow within the case. Hope this build is helpful for some of you out there. Also, I already posted this on reddit before and you may refer to that original posting [url=here]https://www.reddit.com/r/sffpc/comments/jayka1/down_the_sff_rabbit_hole_an_sg13_odyssey_airflow/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3[/url].
