3 out of 5 eggsPoor manufacturing loses some eggs for otherwise robust case for price

Pros: It's an ok case for the price point, with fan for ambient cooled micro/mini ITX boards.

Cons: The hole for the punch plate on the back was off by about 5mm or so, bending my punch plate a little to force it. The outer shells tolerances also seem a little off, as it doesn't line up perfectly with either it's anchor points or its screw holes without a little force.

Other Thoughts: I was building an micro htpc and for what I paid, it works. I wouldn't put this at the front of my list if I were to do the build all over again, but it does get the job done.

4 out of 5 eggsSturdy little case

Pros: Compact ITX case that allows for installation of dual-slot graphics cards. Strong enough to survive being in luggage. Large case fan. Room for 2 hard drives. Makes for a nice ITX-sized gaming rig

Cons: *Have to remove front cover to clean grill, LEDs don't like to stay in after the first couple of times
*Power supply gave up almost as soon as warranty ended (no 3.3v)

Other Thoughts: Wish there was a version .5-1 inch deeper that could easily hold a small water cooler kit like the H50. In regards to the PSU, the 450w version was not available when I purchased mine, so I was running at around 90-95% load which probably didn't help

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case and airfloy

Pros: Good size case, I had a Foxconn barebones case that was far from useful, and the motherboard was slightly wider than you standard itx case including both a PCIE and PCIE X16 slot, so this case fit the bill. The 300watt PSU is very quite, and the front 120mm fan is near silent from my couch, lol.

Cons: Two cons, the case is very tight inside, will not accomadate tall cooling systems, as the PSU in my build is direclty over the CPU, second problem, to clean the dust filter, you have to remove the case and front bezel, and if you have the case in an entertainment center, it's kind of a pain, oh, and after a while you can see a round 120MM shadow of dust collecting on the filter through the front grill, guess thats a visual to tell you, it' time to clean it. AT $100, you would think one could just pop off a front cover, I would expect something like this from a $50 case., would

Other Thoughts: as mentioned, Purchased this to accomadate a funky motherboard form factor from a foxconn bare bones R10-G3 system I purchased months ago, with poor cooling, I'm running a seperate video card along side the ceton card, it's been running 24X7 for about 3-4 months, the fans seem as quite as the day I turned the system on.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Case

Pros: Steel Body
Good Ventilation
Plenty of space for hiding wires assuming you're competent at cable management.
High quality psu

Cons: Plastic faceplate is on so tightly that one of it's securing fins snapped when I took it off.
Design on the top steel mesh is an eye sore once you notice it.
Poor support for watercooling.
Non-modular PSU.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice to see Silverstone make a better mini-itx case for water cooling as the community for sff gaming is increasing and both the SG05/SG06 and SG07/SG08 have serious issues with it.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty impressed

Pros: Bigger than all the rest of the Mini-ITX cases. Uses slim sata to save space. Can fit a double height video card with ease. High quality case, high quality power supply.

Cons: Front panel must be removed to clean air filter. Motherboard standoffs use non-standard fine-thread screws, and are NOT replaceable. Case fan is 3-wire, 4-wire for better control would be better.

Other Thoughts: I bought a Core i3 processor, and the OEM heat-sink and fan work perfectly. Still almost an inch of space left for a taller heat-sink. Be sure to get a bracket for a 2.5" drive if you are installing an SSD, and ignore the picture Newegg posted here that shows a slim-sata adapter is included. DO NOT buy an angled slim sata cable like I did or the drive will not be flush with case front.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect - Definitely Worthy

Pros: As tight as the case is, there is definitely plenty of room for what you need. Inlet filter (also see cons) helps keep the dust down.

Good quality PSU is another great selling point.

If you are looking to build a sleeper PC the size of your head, look no further.

Cons: My major beef with this case is that you have to remove the cover in order to access the front air filter.

My next build will utilize the Silverstone TJ08B-E, which features an externally removable filter. Siverstone, why u no do this for the SG05-B??

Other Thoughts: Recently, I have been doing all my builds (for both myself and clients) utilizing the positive pressure air flow design.

For reliability and equipment longevity, I believe easy access filters are a must these days. The main problem is that these types of features are not on the forefront of the manufacturer's bullet list. I am still looking for the perfect SFF or Micro Tower case because of this.

My application for this case was for a HTPC (plus home server) to replace my cable box. Outfitted with CETON InfiniTV 4 and ASUS P8H67 Deluxe. Have had NO problems with this build. I definitely recommend this case!

4 out of 5 eggsexcellent home NAS case

Pros: Professional looking case, and decent airflow with 12cm fan. This case easily accommodates three 3.5" hard drives if you are willing to build a simple hanging bracket. Out of the box, there is room for one 3.5" drive, one 2.5" drive, and one slim optical drive. But if you just pull out the mounting hardware for these drives (it just unscrews so no physical/irreversible modding is necessary), you can easily fashion a simple hanging bracket to hold three 3.5" drives. It might be possible to even fit four 3.5" drives if you really stuff them together, and your mobo/cpufan combo is low, but I have not measured this out precisely to be sure. Ah, by pulling out the factory bracket, you can't have a slim optical drive. For me, that was not an issue as my boot drive is a USB plug (with FreeNAS).

Cons: It's a tight build as it is a Mini-ITX case. Rather pricey, but it is really nice looking, and not filled with shiny chrome-colored plastic, goofy blue fan lights, etc. If you do go for the three 3.5" drive solution I mentioned, you cannot have a slim optical drive in the system.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a small, but nice looking NAS case, you'll search for a long time, and find that there are not many options available in *this* size range. Sure, there are more options available if you want something bigger, but again, at *this* size range there are not very many possibilities. And the ones that do exist (at this size range...) usually only accommodate only one or possibly two 3.5" drives. Since it's so easy to make a simple hanging bracket to allow this case to hold three 3.5" drives, it is the perfect solution I was looking for for my needs. To make the hanging bracket, you can get some aluminum "L" beam at Home Depot for a few bucks.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: *Just big enough, dual slot GPU, a large-ish cpu cooler.
*FSP group PSU with active PFC.
*Well built case, all steel except the front panel.
*PSU will power a 125W CPU, motherboard, and a nvidia GTS450 running cpuburn and furmark without issues.

Cons: *Fan filter hard to clean as the entire front of the case needs to be removed.
*If the first harddrive tray(the 2.5" one) were about 4mm taller, it would fit either a 3.5" or dual 2.5" drives.
*PSU cables need work, 3 sata, 2 molex, and a floppy connector is overkill for this case.
*The existing 2.5" hdd try will only mount harddrive right side up. This is an issue as all of the sata connectors have connections that point up. This means they run into the drive tray and need to be bent very sharply.

Other Thoughts: ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe with a 1055T and a coolermaster GeminII S fit in this case, but make sure you crack open the PSU and swap the fan direction.

Some short sata cables could have been provided as 6" ones are hard to find. Also it could have included an slim sata adapter in the box as well, as those are even harder to find in less than 18" lengths.

A modular PSU with connections on the side would have been great, along with a 2 port sata power cable with the correct lengths for use with the hdd bays would have nice.

5 out of 5 eggsVery well made

Pros: Excellent construction. Good instructions.

Cons: None so far. Was not looking for a see thru side panel or a fancy front.

Other Thoughts: Note that it only takes a slim optical drive
