SilverStone Sugo Series SG05W-LITE Computer Case

Introduced in 2009, the Sugo SG05 was a revelation for a form factor originally destined for low-powered computing. Designed for use with Mini-DTX and Mini-ITX motherboards, the SG05 was capable of swallowing many standard components while keeping everything cooled. It was the first Mini-ITX case in its size class equipped with a 120mm fan and capable of accommodating 10in. graphics cards. This breakthrough design allowed anyone to build a fast and affordable PC in a case smaller than a shoebox. With SFX power supplies becoming more popular - thanks to the success of SG05 and subsequent case designs - SilverStone has decided to release a version of SG05, called "SG05-Lite," without an SFX power supply included. This bare chassis model will be more affordable and give users greater flexibility in choosing components.

5 out of 5 eggsThe ITX Gold Standard

Pros: Ridiculously Small
2.5" & 3.5" Drive Support
USB3 + HD Audio Front
120mm Front Intake Fan
Slimline Optical Drive Support
Supports Moderately Long GPUs (10")

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what the other reviewer here is talking about "corrupted airflow" and no spot for an optical drive, but in my case both points are incorrect.

My current setup is a Core i5-2500k along with an XFX HD 7950 powered by a Silverstone 450W SFX PSU and I've been golden for over a year.

I have a AXP-100 CPU cooler with a 120mm fan mounted to blow air upwards. Some escapes through the vents up top, and the rest is pulled into the PSU which blows it out the back. With the front 120mm sucking cold air in and the GPU pulling its own fresh air through a side vent, there's plenty of strong airflow and good thermals (with good cable management, of course).

I don't use the 3.5" caddy (due to cooler clearance), but I have installed a 1TB HDD into the 2.5" bay and use a 128GB mSATA SSD. Even if you don't have an mSATA slot on your motherboard, I've found that there's enough space in the bottom front of the case to tape down a standard 2.5" SSD.

And, of course, I have a slim DVD+/-RW drive installed as well.

All in all, this is an amazing case by Silverstone. It's stood the test of time since its design and truly is the gold standard to which all other ITX cases are compared to.

1 out of 5 eggsPinacle of deception

Pros: None

Cons: It doesent have a slot for the cd/dvd rom. Corrupted air from the power supply goes right into the intake of the cpu cooler. You can only mount 1x 120mm. fan so this tells you right off something is bound to fry if it's not the whole internal components that will go into oblivion...

Other Thoughts: How does thing thing got ever on the market in the first place and who is the engeneer that designed this box of problems?

3 out of 5 eggsNot great by today's standards

Pros: -The smallest case I could find that can hold a standard size GPU.
-SFX power supply mount. I don't want a gigantic PSU in an ITX case.
-Cheap

Cons: -The drive tray wastes a significant amount of space for the option of installing a slim disk drive. DVDs are sort of archaic, but I suppose they weren't when this case was designed. You can always use the space for extra 2.5" drives or to keep your cables out of the way.
-No filter on intake vent next to the GPU.
-Should have an exhaust vent on the back between the mobo ports and PSU.
-The USB header is too long and too stiff.
-The LEDs are too bright. I unplugged them.
-The included fan made a clicking sound so I replaced it eventually.
-Silverstone's modular SFX power supply doesn't fit with the disk/hard drive tray installed unless you do a bit of modding. I initially had to cut holes in the drive tray to run the modular cables through. This obstructs the 2.5" drive mount. Eventually I removed the disk tray entirely and made my own.

Other Thoughts: Be aware that if you want a long GPU it may not fit in this case.
None of the cons are dealbreakers, but the lack of modular PSU support really hurts in this small of a case.

All things considered, this is a fairly old design (2009) and there are better options these days.

5 out of 5 eggsSugo

Pros: Cheap for a SIlverstone. I saved some csh by buying the lite version then buying the Silverstone 300w PSU for a HTPC. used a Corsair H50. Could not fit the hard drive caddy with the H50. But I used a SSD so no big deal

Cons: It would be nice if ti had the mounts for an ATX in addition to the SFX. It will fit but its tight

Other Thoughts: Great little HTPC and you can fit a 10.5" GPU

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Space Saver

Pros: Size.
Design.
Ease of parts installation.

Cons: Cover is not easy to put back on. Shouldn't be that difficult

Other Thoughts: Use this for an office PC as the lady using it like her PC on her desk next to her monitor. This was perfect size that allowed for a desktop PC to be built in.
Great case for small builds. Could even be used for a LAN gaming box.

5 out of 5 eggsNice design, easy to work with

Pros: Case is nice looking. When installing hardware, the top three sides of the walls come out as a single piece, leaving lots of room to work with.

Cons: - installing disk drive is tricky
- the lights are too bright (and I'm too lazy to fix it)

1 out of 5 eggsGreat case, bad PSU

Pros: small, not too difficult to work with. It is a small case after all. can be a pain to swap drives. and cheap.

Cons: I have have 5 of these over 2 orders. 3 of them have dead PSU's and 2 of those took the entire $600 of hardware with it. RAM dead, MOBO dead, SSD and HDD dead, and graphics card dead.

The "FSP Group" power supply is no good and too risky for my taste.

saving $100 was not worth the $2000 parts repair bill, not to mention my time.

Other Thoughts: My boss was not too impressed. this case has turned me off of DYI PC builds for anything work related.
(Home use DIY PC will never change, how can i call my self a sys admin if i dont have a Frankenstein build with half server parts and half consumer parts)

4 out of 5 eggsGood little Steam Box

Pros: As the title states, I bought this case to be used for a Steam Box. It's a great size and works very well with my entertainment center. People are always blown away that I could pack so much power into a little form factor. It looks pretty slick if not a little cheap, but overall works perfect for my gaming needs,

Cons: There are a few problems with the box I have found. First one is my fault. I was looking at the Cooler Master originally, but decided on the silver stone instead. The two cases look very similar, but there a few differences. The Cooler Master will take a standard ATX power supply, where as the Silverstone does not,. I made my corsair fit by bending and moving different parts, but it definitely isn't recommended. Second, the case is fairly flimsy, but what can you expect from something under $40? Also, it didn't come with a USB 3.0 to 2.0 header. Also my card barely fit in, EVGA SC 760. I was worried the case would be useless when I first started building it, but everything eventually worked out.

Other Thoughts: For a $40 case used as a Steam Box, I'm very happy. It definitely has its shortcomings, but the pros out way the cons.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best case isn't necessarily the newest

Pros: 120mm front fan + dust filter -- great ventilation!
Large vent along entire left side to provide excellent fresh air access for long card.
Fits up to 10.3" video card, enough for gtx 770!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I learned from a friend's mistake to avoid the lian li TU-100 case, a failure for video card ventilation. Lesson learned, sometimes the best case isn't the newest!

I ripped out the drive cage since I only used one SSD and no optical drive.
Parts used:
SG05 + silverstone 450 sfx
NT06 cooler (fits perfectly, but adds difficulty to install)
MSI gtx 770 twin frozr (perfect fit, temporarily remove case fan to install)
crucial ballastix sport vlp (low profile ram helps)
MSI z87I ac gaming motherboard

For no good reason I replaced the cooler fan with noctua f-12 and the case fan with noctua s12, both pwm versions

The computer is super quiet and fast, i love it!

Final note: The short version of the MSI 760 would be a perfect match for this case, i got the 770 twin frozr cause it was on sale and I was tempted by the extra power.

5 out of 5 eggssmall but good itx design

Pros: front 120 fan - lots of air is critical for small case builds
2 card slots for double sized vid card
solidly built, very little flex in frame and all is black painted
usb 3 fixture that I needed to swap with my other SS case
I can adapt a 120mm water loop to the front fan

Cons: had to line up the rubber feet correctly
I use an external optical but it needs a slim one and adapter to include it
it could use some black thumb screws for the case shell

Other Thoughts: 3rd or 4th itx build for me and this case has the right idea some cases are small but no real air movement which becomes a real problem
no other air except front fan, I think push down with p/s fan and push/pull out front with 120mm water loop
perhaps I could fit a slim 120mm fan on the inside side
