Silversone's SG02B-F is an evolution of the original SUGO series chassis that can now handle 12" expansion cards. That's right; you can now fit one of today's high powered video cards into an SFF chassis. The internal structure has been redesigned to also handle a standard ATX power supply so you can be sure your system is getting enough juice.

The front panel remains the same so the people at the LAN party won't know anything is different until they start dropping like flies in the PvP section of the evening. You still get the 2x5.25" expansion bays, 1 of which has a 3.5" adapter. There are 2x3.5" internal drive bays, perfect for a RAID setup or a boot drive/data drive setup.

  • newegg HTPC System with 4 Drive Bays Featuring two external 5.25" drive bays and two internal 3.5" drive bays, the SilverStone SG02B-F provides sufficient expandability as an HTPC (Home Theatre PC) case. With the included 5.25"-to-3.5" converter, easily mount an external 3.5” device on the chassis.
  • newegg Effective Cooling The SilverStone SG02B-F features an 80mm side fan and enlarged vents on the top, side and rear panels for effective system cooling.
  • newegg Convenient Front I/O Panel The SilverStone SG02B-F features a convenient front I/O panel for easy access to two USB 2.0 ports, one IEEE 1394 port and two audio ports.

4 out of 5 eggsPlastic front lessens appeal

Pros: Straightforward case, no frills, decent design but SG01 is better.

Cons: Plastic front cheapens the overall look, easy to scratch glossy coating

Limited CPU cooler support due to PSU location placement.

5 out of 5 eggsI love it

Pros: I swapped my previous mid tower Elite 370 with the SG02, and it is worth every additional penny I have put into it.
My A75M-D2h slid right into place at the first try. It is the perfect size.
I was worried about how cramped it looked after completion, and thought I would need to find some advanced engineering techniques to increase airflow. However, after failing to find a cheap 80mm fan to add to the case, I decided to give it a try with only the stock fan, and it is stunningly cool.
I could not believe the reading in HVV Monitor: it runs cooler than in the Elite 370.
The look is ravashing, the finish if not high end is highly efficient. It is sitting right next to my PS3 and they complement each other nicely.

Cons: Lots of screws to work with to do any changes. So you'd better only close it when you are 100% sure you are finished.
My Antec 450 non modular PSU required some real thinking to clear enough room. But in the end you realize how well thought of the case is, and you find a path for all the cables. The clips provided are a nice and simple alternative to spanish ties.
The front panel LED are just blinding. I dimmed it with a translucid dark piece of tape.

Other Thoughts: Config:
Gigabyte A75-D2h mATX
AMD A6-3500 with stock cooler
Corsair vengeance 2x4GB
WD 500GB, WD 160GB
ASUS BR
Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 1GB

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent design and quality

Pros: I'm tired of tall towers, so this "shoe box" design is a nice change of pace. The overall quality of design is really good in Silverstone products (I have their entry level HTPC case, too), including this case. The machining and measurements are all proper and it has a nice bezel. Even comes with a nice VERY quiet 80mm fan (quieter than my Silenx fan).

Cons: Just one: The blue power/sleep LED is ULTRA bright unless you keep the bezel drop down closed. Sometimes you want to open it because you want to plug in a USB or audio device. Prepare to be blinded by the crazy BRIGHT LED they installed! I'm kind of surprised Silverstone felt the need to put such a overly bright LED on this thing. I don't know if I want to dock an EGG because of it though. Everything else about the case is great.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Well-designed little case. Rigid solid steel construction, less the piano black front bezel. Enough room for non-OEM low-profile cpu heatsinks.

Cons: Not really worth an egg off (yet), but needs mentioning... the flip down cover on the front is just a bit light on tension. A minor bump to the case, or even mild bump to a desk will cause the front cover to lay open. I'll deal with that later with a couple of small velcro dots if it becomes a problem.

Other Thoughts: The hard drive cage can be relocated laterally within the case for additional clearance for the HDD/SSD connectors with longer video cards, but requires changing the fan to a thinner type or removing it altogether. I changed the stock HDD cooling fan prior to use and don't know whether it was quiet/loud or what its quality was... OE case fans are typically not very good and I just tossed it in the trash.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Nice finish; Sleek.
Well Ventilated; awesome temps on FX4100 bulldozer with SilenX low profile cooler.
Good size even with full size ATX PSU.
Can add 3 extra 80mm fans, even though not necessary.
Feels solid/sturdy while being light.
Convenient cable management items included.

Cons: No BIOS speaker included; disappointing for a $75 case.
No tool less drive installation.
Stock 80mm fan is loud, though the board I used didn't have chassis fan control. I fixed the noise issue with an arctic cooling PWM sharing fan.
Front LED is blinding; but only with front panel door open.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if stock FX4100 heatsink would have cleared under PSU. I never use stock heatsink so I don't care, but you should know.

Motherboard is a very tight squeeze. Be sure you don't have to remove the stock CPU backplate before installing board...like I did.

Modular PSU probably necessary, especially if you plan on using both front drive bays. Used OCZ ModXstream 500W and it worked very well.

No SSD mounting hardware.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case, but, caution, tight fit

Pros: Nice piano black case finish on the front. Almost mirrored finished silver stripe on the front USB panel cover.

Good quality case build, sturdy, proper weight. The included fans are very quiet.

Cons: Case is extremely tight; almost REQUIRES a modular power supply. The micro-ATX board that I got required quite a bit of maneuvering to get installed. Even then, the edge of the mobo did graze a bit of the case...you won't have a choice.

Case does not include mounting adapter for SSD. Only includes one case fan that blows on the HD tray. Would have liked to have the additional one that blows from the top of the case as well.

5 out of 5 eggsbuy a fan controller - trust me

Pros: First let me say that I have a thing for Silverstone cases. I loved this case the moment I saw it but once my build was complete the fan noise, humming and echoing absolutely drove me crazy. This case is thin and is an echo chamber.
I added an additional cooler master 80mm silent fan
Item#: N82E16835103097
and a Scythe 3.5 fan controller
Item#: N82E16811998089
Now it is almost silent and I can turn the fans up only when I'm gaming. I'm very happy now and again this case looks really good and the fan controller only added to the looks.

Cons: Noise doesn't normally bother me so much but when such a large amount of it is coming from such a small package it really does.

Other Thoughts: Made a great portable gaming system that is now very quiet.

Intel i5 2500k - STOCK COOLER
ASRock H61M-VS LGA 1155
HIS 2gb 6950
OCZ 500 ModXstream PSU
Corsair 8gb 1600 Ram

Can accommodate a large graphics card and it also looks really nice sitting next to a tv as an htpc.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid construction, looks nice, very quiet, relatively easy to work with, small-ish

Cons: I wish it was a little smaller, but at the same time it's very cramped on the inside. However my biggest gripe with this unit is that the LED on the front is insanely bright. I like the blue light I just wish it was 90% less bright. Also I'm not sure if other people have had this problem but installing hard drives into the bays has been a major royal pain. I was able to screw the drive into the carrier but when I slid it into the case it just would not fit. This happened with both drives. I didn't want to slam them in but ultimately I did have to give each drive a good nudge to get it in place. Let's hope I never have to remove the drives..

5 out of 5 eggsDoes the Job Nicely:

Pros: Price, quality, design, appearance, harddrive slide-in mounting trays.

Cons: Included HD cooling fan is rather noisy, but only for those who are sensitive to it. Replace the stock fan with a quiet model prior to installing the harddrive(s).
Motherboard fitment can be difficult depending upon the motherboard 20+4-pin power connector configuration. (See "other thoughts".)

Other Thoughts: Re: Asus M4A785-M motherboard: Clearance between the 20+4 power connector body and the harddrive bay rear panel is very tight. With the motherboard down on the tray the cable plug locking latch may not go past and over the locking detent. The power cable plug must be installed into the connector before the front of the motherboard is dropped down to the tray.
I'd recommend using a modular PS, or a PS with sleeved cables and leave the top 5-1/4" accessory bay vacant in order to accomodate the excess portions of the cabling.
