Designed for use with Mini-DTX and Mini-ITX motherboards, the SG05-450 is the smallest Sugo yet. Compared with previous iterations at around 23 liters in volume, the SG05-450 at 10.8 liters is less than half the size! However, in keeping with the spirit of its Sugo name, the case is capable of swallowing many standard components while keeping everything cooled. For the first time in a case of this size class, the SG05-450 is equipped with a low speed 120mm fan that is mounted to create positive air pressure, ensuring good balance of cooling and quietness.

Other notable features include the ability to accept 9 inch long graphics card, room for thicker 2.5 inch hard drives such as Western Digital’s VelociRaptor, full-height for retail boxed CPU coolers, and an 80 PLUS Bronze certified SFX 450W power supply. For building a fast PC in the smallest possible form factor, the SG05-450 is without peers.

  • newegg Mini-ITX System with Superior Expandability Compatible with mini-DTX / mini-ITX motherboards, the Silverstone SG05-450 features one external slim 5.25" drive bay, one internal 3.5" drive bay and one internal 2.5" drive bay, and supports CPU cooler up to 82mm in height and a standard-length video card (9’’), providing sufficient expandability as a mini-ITX case.

5 out of 5 eggstight fit just how I like it

Pros: 450W 80+ PSU thats actually good
lots of options for such a small unit. 2 HDD locations,120MM fan,up to a 8" graphics card.
Light weight and of course really is a small case
And like many had said free USB 3.0 upgrade!

Cons: tight fit for water cooling
If you do use water cooling your GPU options shorten
cable management is understandably hard.
PSU does not include mini sata connections

Other Thoughts: So many points others have made, there is slight flex in the case but no more then what I would expected from most cases. So I didn't see that as a con.
Personally was great case for a long time, I would not consider this a HTPC case IMO but to each there own.

about 6 months ago I upgrades alot of things in my system and have now just about out grown the unit.
I will say due to the amount of stuff thats in there its a great case.

Intel Core i7 2600S (Still in there)
ASRock Z68M-ITX/HT (still in there)
Patriot Gamer 2 Series 2x4 8GB (still in there)
Things that I have changed
Nvidia Geforce 440 GT ( Now a AMD Radeon HD 6850)
Patriot 32GB SSD + Hitachi 500GB HDD ( Now 2 Samsung Pro 256GB SSD's in raid )
Optical was removed due to the addition of intels Liquid cooling solution.

5 out of 5 eggsEven better than expected

Pros: I ordered this from another vendor which prived me the same item with free shipping.
I found the construction better than I expected. Case seems solidly built, the front panel is the only part that is plastic. Has two small plastic inserts to prevent cable from cutting.
Mine arrived with USB3 on the front panel with a USB 3 to 2 adapter which was a nice surprise. It also came with an extra plastic part for the front bezel that doesn't have the logo on it which is nice for those who want a comlpetely black front panel with no writing on it. There is also a filter on the 120mm front fan. I'd also like to note that I measured the thickness of the metal of the case at .75mm in more than 3 locations which is 25% thicker than the advertised .6mm
The power supply (V2.0) that came with it has:
2x4 pin IDE HDD + 1x FDD
3xSATA power
1x20+4 main power
2x4 pin supplemental power
1x6 and 1x6+2 PCIE power connector
21A on 3.3v
22A on 5v
36A on 12v
2.5A on 5vsb
Also included screws and o

Cons: Only con would be that it uses a non standard power supply footprint, but so does every other mini-ITX case I looked at.

Other Thoughts: If the rating was 1-10 I would probably give it a 10. Very nice for it's price point.
they arranged it well by putting the HDD caddy offset leaving more room for discreet graphics cards. I have not installed a graphics card yet, but according to my measurements 10~10.25" should fit if very careful. 10.5" or longer will not fit.

4 out of 5 eggsNeat Little Case

Pros: - Sturdy frame with holes and clearance for using zip ties to manage cables.

- The whole thing can be disassembled in under 5 minutes.

- Well Ventilated on both sides and the top allowing the video card and power supply (If you flip it) to pull in fresh air.

- Plenty of power to run my i3 2120 and 550ti. Burn in tests were not a problem and temperatures stayed within limits.

Cons: - The cover is a little flimsy but seems sufficient for the purpose. I haven't had any of the popping issues that others mentioned.

- The finish on the case easily scratches. I carried mine under my arm when transporting it and the bottom of the case was scratched from rubbing against my plastic cell phone holder.

- CD/DVD Slim tray was a bit irksome. You CANNOT use a right angle slim adapter with this case. The tray that holds the slim drive extends past the drive and prevents an adapter from being plugged in.

Other Thoughts: - A few people had mentioned the screws being difficult to work with. All of them were close to standard sized with the exception of screws for the slim CD\DVD drive.

- The case comes with the power supply pulling air in from above the processor and exhausting it out the back of the case. I flipped mine around so that it is pulling air through the top.

- The case fan is very easy to replace. I very rarely use stock case fans so this was nice.

This computer is a gift for my mother. Since she lives in another state and likes to game I decided to test the thermal efficiency before sending it to her. With a stock case fan and stock cpu cooler I was getting an idle of 50C. Flip the power supply, replace the case fan with a Cougar CF-V12HB, and use some arctic silver 5 with a Thermaltake Slim X3 and I get 40C at idle. I wrote a more detailed temperature review on the X3's page.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case despite.....

Pros: Good amount of both space and airflow. Plenty of ventilation. Front fan moves large volume at low noise. PSU has solid output. Makes HTPC size capable of performing well enough to gaming standards. Solid bracing and framing make case sturdier than normal small form factor cases. Decent clearance for CPU cooling.

Cons: Case requires slim line optical drive and included PSU does not actually have proper connector requiring separate purchase of slim-sata power cable adapter which is not readily available. Cover jammed on during packaging requiring brackets to be bent back into shape during build. PSU can be reversed as stated to change airflow but this will cinch cable on edge of drive bay and cause wrestling during routing as well as wear on power cable shielding.

Other Thoughts: This can be a great case if you can be patient and thoughtful. small micro screws and PSU can be insanely frustrating and may not be worth the work to people who can't tolerate design flaws or want open options of components. Effort and thought can produce HTPC sized gamer including discreet graphics. BE PREPARED TO WORK!

4 out of 5 eggsFlimsy Feel

Pros: Small and compact case that allows a decent sized video card as well as liquid cooling.

There are plenty of holes on the sides to allow the best ventilation.

PSU is powerful enough to run a 560 or a 6950

Cons: Flimsy top. Starts popping when you press against a side.

The power button mechanism is located at the top making it get stuck if you press it in the middle.

Other Thoughts: its my fault but i dropped the case top and it scratched the paint off pretty good. covered it with a frag sticker so all good.

Overall its very good and spacious

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the trick!

Pros: Fits my EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti !!!!

Fits up to 2 drives, Slim DVD. Has enough power to run the graphics card above a i7 2600K processor. overall a perfect little case with a few problems below. I'd buy again at 4 eggs, however for a perfect product the issues below need to be addressed

Cons: For some reason the power button keeps catching. Not enough of an issue to send back, however its minus one egg.. When the power button catches the motherboard doesn't start. I have to use a pin or small glasses size screw driver to pry the button.

The other issue that is already talked about is you need a mini Mini SATA Cable with Molex Power Adapter Model really stupid design that the case does not come with one since it requires a slim DVD drive. And the slim Blue-Ray drives are about $100.

3 out of 5 eggsVery Disappointed

Pros: Looks good, that's where I stopped. Sure the format is attraction, not much to compete with it. I'm sure everything else will be appreciable as others have mentioned.

Cons: In spite of all the complaints about the cover I bought this. They've been making this case for quite some time, and still the case cover is junk. It was popping like crazy just taking it out of the box. For the price that's unacceptable. This thing is going to be popping every time through heating and cooling. I'm thinking of how I'm going to reinforce the areas the buckle so easily. Consider it a mod job, not a ready to build.

Other Thoughts: Enough has been said and suggested, they aren't listening or don't care, or maybe both.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Design

Pros: The size of this case is amazing. Due to the layout of the box and the front fan, air flow is great. You will only be able to use a stock CPU cooler with this box, but with most Mini-ITX boards that is all that will fit anyway. Again, this case is amazingly small, but will fit everything you need with ample room.

Cons: The power button is centered on the power LED, not on the switch, so pressing it causes the bottom of the button to get stuck down (the switch lines up with the top of the button). It still works, but its such an obvious mistake in the design that it is frustrating. The biggest problem is that nobody is making SFX PSUs with over 500W. This box can handle a full size graphics card. Top end cards now recommend a 500W+ PSU. Athena power makes one, but it is too deep to fit in this case.

Other Thoughts: I am running my GIGABYTE GV-N560OC-1GI GeForce GTX 560 Ti on the 450W PSU that came with it with no problems so far, but I am also only running a SSD and an optical drive.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect ITX Case

Pros: Small, easy to build, and inexpensive.

Cons: Virtually none. I only wish that it had a slightly more powerful Power Supply that was modular.

Other Thoughts: This was my first ITX build. I wanted to do one for years but the cases always where just a bit too big to justify. Silverstone fixed it with the SG05. I used mostly spare parts to put together a very good 720P gaming rig. The build was pretty easy, but you do need to follow the instructions. Build quality of the case was excellent. I replaced the stock front fan with a white NEXUS case fan and removed the front filter because it just looks awesome that way. The system has plenty of positive pressure, and run quiet.

My only complaint is that the PSU isn't modular. That would help a lot building these systems. I would have gladly paid a little extra if they could make a modular 500 watt version. I could put a GeForce 570 (9 inch) in the case and easily make a tiny Battlefield 3 rig.

Test Build: Celeron G530, Gigabyte H67-USB3-B3, GeForce GTS 250, 4GB Corsair Ram, Nexus front fan, and stock Intel cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsNearly perfect.

Pros: A lovely, well ventilated case with large fans and a high efficiency PSU. The graphics card slots are ventilated along the full length of the case, and the hard drive tray has multiple attachment points. This case has a wide, clear path for air to flow from the front fan to the PSU and CPU, as well as a nice washable filter for the main front fan. The power and reset buttons are recessed but can be pressed without tools. I don't think I'd ever accidentally cut power, with these buttons. No back panel port insert comes with this case, so it's a snap to put in the one that comes with the motherboard. The audio connectors are clearly labeled & the manual is pretty helpful.

Cons: The washable intake air filter has some loose plastic fibers and made a quiet ticking noise against its fan (started after about a week of use) until I trimmed the edges a bit and covered them with scotch tape. Because the front fan is an intake, the front of the case gets dusty quickly. When the case arrived there was a thin layer of rust-colored powder on some of the back corners of the case; it came right off with a paper towel. The case doesn't magically get smaller when not containing a full-size graphics card. The power LED and disk activity LED are very bright and very directional, regardless of ambient light.

Other Thoughts: I'm very happy with this cute little case. Right now I'm using it with only one HDD and integrated graphics, so I particularly appreciate that the PSU is efficient for both light and heavy loads. It's great to have a small, sturdy case that can support a powerful system. I like knowing I can upgrade to a large, power-hungry graphics card when I'm ready to do some serious gaming or CAD.
