I have an HTPC using the G05B and the Big Shuriken works great in it.
You state in the thread title SG05B which is an ITX case but the case shown in your pics is the GD50B mAtx Case btw.

Here are some pics of my HTPC (GD05B) with a Big Shuriken installed and an optical drive. It's a tight fit but it does fit.
The biggest concern was the optical drives sata cable getting in the way of the heatsink's fan but it doesn't at all even though it may look that way due to the angles of the pictures.
