5 out of 5 eggsAirflow!

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: For a m-ATX case there is plenty of space. Three case fans that are whisper quiet and move air right where it needs to be. Light case made of metal, not a lot of plastic.

Cons: Zip...

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mATX Case For Experienced Builders, But Not Without Flaws

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is probably the most impressively compact mATX case I've seen, it is truly impressive what Silverstone has managed to accomplish with the SG10. The ability to have an mATX case with standard ATX PSU, a full-length GPU, 4 2.5" drives, 2 3.5" drives, AND a slim slot-slot loading optical drive in a chassis this small is a remarkable feat.

Cons: All these features in such a small package do not come without some compromises or flaws, however. First and foremost, the power supply. All I had to go on before my purchase was that the case supported up to a 180mm length PSU (I would NOT put a 180mm PSU in this case BTW, not saying it can't work but the 160mm PSU I used was cramped enough). I purchased a Seasonic SS-660XP2 for it. The Seasonic works fine, but at the cost of removing the included 120mm side fan. The problem is the position of the power connector; the Seasonic can only be mounted one way, which places the plug right where the 120mm fan needs to go. If you look at a Silverstone PSU on their website such as the ST60F-PS, you will notice that the power connector on that PSU is rotated 90 degrees. This would allow for a perfect hook-up to the SG10's power cable without interfering with the fan below.

To summarize: If you're looking to buy this case and prefer convenience and insist on every feature it offers, buy a Silverstone PSU with it that has the proper connector positioning. If you can accept the removal of the 120mm side fan, go with a better quality PSU from Seasonic, etc. Honestly I'm not sure what you'd even need that fan for, it doesn't blow across any hard drives or anything, you can install an internal 80mm in the middle of the case, and having both would improve airflow if you have a two hot GPUs stuffed in there I suppose. I don't think most users should have any reason to worry though.

That's not the only problem with the power though; the power cable conduit runs to the back of the case, and then has a plug facing above the rear fan facing the I/O shield. Silverstone should have included a 90 degree angle power cable with this case, because if you use the nice thick but stiff low gauge cable that came with your PSU it's going to want to pass right through your top row of USB ports, which will mean pressure on the USB cables from the power cable. I also noticed that my power cable wouldn't seat firmly; I plugged in a USB optical drive to install my motherboard's NIC driver and the little bit of flex from moving the cable reset the PC, oops.

It would be far preferable for it to just go straight down in front of the rear fan (a round power cable will not impede airflow), so I purchased a right angle power cable (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812196484). Silverstone really should have included this with the case though, even if it were at the expense of the included 120mm side fan that many owners will likely not even be able to use...

The last knock I'll give this case is the odd J shaped cover. Once all of your goodies are installed in it it's really a pain to close properly, it took me back to old school '90s ATX cases with the single U-shaped single piece left/right/top covers. Making sure you had every little tab in place while fighting the resistance from power cables/etc. is trickier than it may seem.

Other Thoughts: I used Silverstone ultra thin SATA cables (P/N SST-CP11) for my build in this case and I am very glad I did! If you're planning to install several drives in this case, say more than 2 (I installed 4 SSDs), I'd highly recommend these cables, it made the data connections to my SSDs much easier than it would have been with standard cables.

Though this case is certainly not 'easy' to work in I've found it to be easier or at least no more difficult than plenty of other cases. Still, I wouldn't recommend it for first time builders. Planning is key to a painless install in a case like this. For instance, if your motherboard has side mounted SATA plugs as many do these days to accommodate large GPUS, plug your SATA cables into the motherboard before mounting it to your case. Some cable runs may benefit from being run before motherboard installation as well.

Lastly, remember to make sure your PSU switch is turned on before sealing up that case!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat SFF Case

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case design is very well laid out. I was easily able to install all components and route cables (GTX 980, Thermaltake Pro 3.0, SSD and HD).

The case itself is solid and the removable fan filter covers are solid as well (no flimsiness in this case at all). Buttons and USB ports up front are sleek, and the power/HDD lights are finely done as well. I'm also a fan of the slim Blu-ray slot- very functional (I will watch movies on this machine as well).

I've only installed one SSD and one HD (large capacities), but I'm very happy knowing that it will not be an issue at all to fill all slots (3 more SSDs and 1 more HDD) if I ever needed, though I doubt I'll need that many.

The stock fans run quietly and do a great job of keeping the components cool. Using MB DC fan controllers (these are not PWM fans), I have them running at a min of 600RPM, but you could probably go to 450RPM. They are quiet well up the fan curve, though.

Cons: As might be expected with a smaller case, planning ahead is really needed (so, yes, this is a weak con). If you get a large PSU (180 or 200mm), modular cables won't fit well if at all, and the bulk of non-modular cables will be a mess to fit. Definitely try to stick with a smaller PSU.

I had purchased an 80mm fan for the right side, but then I realized you can't change/clean it's filter without removing the main case cover (all other fan covers are very easily accessible). So I didn't use the fan- turned out it wasn't needed, all components are running very cool with pretty quiet fan curves. They could improve this, though, by adding a cover panel similar to other fan locations.

Lastly, you really need to plan when you make your cable connections (both power and SATA). Things get tight in a hurry, and it's a bear to access plug locations as components start taking up the space. This is another weak con, as this should be expected in a SFF build.

Other Thoughts: Their marketing descriptions and literature do a good job of urging you to pay attention to the power supply you choose for the power cord connection. I did the proper research and bought the Corsair AX860i (nice PSU BTW), so my PSU install went smoothly.

4 out of 5 eggsPain in the a-- to work in, but worth it

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: After setup it's a beautiful case in a small form factor for a mATX setup. Whisper quiet now that all my case fans can run off the motherboard, and great airflow and cooling if you take the time to setup the fans and wiring properly

Cons: Terrible to work in. There were many times where I wondered why SilverStone would have possibly done something so strange. Some examples: hard drive mounting position, PCI card double lock, lack of tool-less features, orientation of PSU cable.

Other Thoughts: This case is still worth a look for those of you who want a challenge with decent payoff in looks and size, and don't have plans of constantly upgrading your components. With the difficulty of this build, you're going to want to build it and never open it ever again haha

5 out of 5 eggsSmaller than most ITX Cases

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent layout and design. This thing is literally smaller than most ITX cases (looking at your Prodigy).

-I've fit Phanteks- PH-TC14PE, Cryorig R1 and a handful of other huge dual tower Heatsinks in the SG10 without issue. It's real CPU cooler height limit is closer to 170mm. Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power will not fit! I tried, it's too tall...barely.

-Will accommodate basically any size graphics card, just be careful with cards like GTX 780 Classy which is extra wide, it will interfere with your side fan mounting options.

-The best airflow setup I've found is to flip the top AP181 to exhaust, block the 80mm fan slot opening from the inside and retain either the single 120mm AP121 that comes with the cases side panel or use 2 92mm's. Ideally you'd want a cooler like the Cryorig R1 Universal which you can mount horizontally. This way the CPU coolers fans aid in the direction air is travelling, intake through the side to maintain positive pressure and exhaust out the top. The rear fan you can use as a option as well.

-It's very important to use a quiet powersupply since it's intake sits right at the front with nothing but basically cloth between your ears and it's fan. I opted for a hybrid model that doesn't spin until loaded or hits a predetermined Temperature.

-Another tip, use the PSU extension cable to create a wall/duct between it's edge so that air only escapes outside. I used zip ties against the PSU's honeycomb vent to align the cable vertically.

-Also the suggested powersupply length is 140mm, it will fit longer ones but you have to take into account the cables protruding which can interfere with closing the case.

-You are supplied with a 140mm bracket as an alternative for the top fan mount. I'd suggest keeping the 180mm mainly because a portion of it extends over the rear of the motherboard tray where you're HDD's are located. As mentioned above Silverstone setup the top fan as Intake out the box to blow air down onto your Hard Drives, regardless though flipping to exhaust instead as I mentioned above still helps get the heat built up back there out.

Cons: -The fan filter plastic mesh is pretty restrictive both on top and below. Especially with the top 180mm fan as removing it reduces noise greatly and lowers Temps.

-Speaking of the top fan it's by far the loudest component. Above 700'ish RPM I find it too intrusive. Tolerance to noise is subjective so you might find it Ok. It will go down to about 600 RPM.

-Case feet suck, I bought some nice silver accented ones that are 10mm in height making grabbing a hold of the case to move it a lot easier.

Other Thoughts: I really don't understand the complaints. Of course there will be compromises in packaging/design when it comes to something this size. With that in mind there is nothing else you can cram this much into with such a small foot print.

There is another guy down there who slams the case but the majority of his complaints just seem plain ignorant.

-The cases power light is white...not blue. The HDD activity light flashes blue in the middle.

-The cover itself is pretty decent thickness steel, unless you choose to sit on it or throw it down a set of stairs I see no way you could bend it out of shape unless that's your intention.

-The PSU ventilation case is not solid...are you reviewing the same case? It's open on both ends to give the user the option of allowing your PSU to intake from within the case or the exterior.

-Getting the cover on is very simple, what most people seem to be having issues with are the 2 lips at the very front of the cover which won't stay put until forward pressure is applied. It's pretty easy, line everything up with one hand and screw in the thumbscrew with the other. This is why the rear uses thumb screws.

-I really don't care whether the case uses screws for PCI slot covers or the retention bracket. Pretty irrelevant complaint.

2 out of 5 eggsMade in China junk passed off as high end gear

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: *shrug* its a case? If it was engineered they way it almost looks, then it would be great. It fits full size graphics cards (though the side case fan will need to be removed).

Cons: Poorly configured PSU ventilation (solid cage) does not accommodate PSU with through flow design or fanless PSUs.

Poorly thought out card retention requires tools to remove the vent cover AND the add-in cards.

Power light is a backlit LED "bar" with blue HDD led in the middle of it. You can't see HDD activity unless you stare at it in a dark room.

Case cover fitment is not very good. The cover is barely held in place and harder than it should be to put in place. The two pieces are held together by a tiny screw that must be removed to remove the cover. Another tiny screw on the bottom must also be removed to remove the entire WRAP AROUND cover. In a word clumsy.

The cover is not very rigid. Crucial areas can be easily bent during assembly disassembly. Problem areas could have easily been embossed or creased to increase rigidity without a significant cost increase and zero weight increase.

Mine came with a bad (bad bearing) case fan.

Other Thoughts: Frankly, just more imported garbage that is engineered for look more than function. Why thumbscrews if a screwdriver is needed to remove the cover? Why put a blue HDD light in the middle of a BLUE power indicator? Why is the cover so flimsy? Why does the add-in card vent not hold the cards captive and instead they need to have screws in them as well? I fail to understand (even to make a price point) why the 3rd or 4th generation of a product line is not better designed than this. While this case may be better than some of the other garbage sold, it is still garbage that could have been so much better if just a bit of thought was put into the design. It is clear the cover screws were added because the thumbscrews were not enough to keep the poorly designed cover in place... FAIL! I used cases 15 years ago that were better built. It a shame that this is as good as it gets these days.

3 out of 5 eggsGood product with a few design flaws

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Case feels sturdy because of its weight and thickness of the metal. It is also very compact. Looks elegant and has a brushed finish on bottom and just looks good

USB 3.0 connections upfront

Cons: The fan area in front of the power supply is a bit to close which kept case from closing properly. I purchased Seasonic SS-760XP2 and using a 80mm or 90mm fan in that area still did no fit correctly.

To open case is not so bad but putting it back together can be a headache and keep you away from opening.

The front grill for mine does not completely stay flush with the front of case and sticks out just a tad. Nothing seems to be blocking behind it so not sure why it always pokes out at all but its not to noticable.

I never thought using a slot loader optical drive could be that bad but I was wrong. I purchased 2 so far and both have had problems and been far to loud and have had discs get stuck (their not as common so hard to find good quality for decent price).

Other Thoughts: Probably would not buy again but I do like the look on the outside.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent SFF Case

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Small! I don't know why I ever used ATX cases. Fits huge graphics cards no problem. Also fits my 120mm CPU cooler. Definitely one of the funner builds I've ever done. Sturdy. I know this case is going to last.

Cons: It's a very tight fit with a big graphics card. The case fan for the card was smacked up against the power cables for the GPU.

The case sides are really hard to get on right and require two philips head screws along with the finger-screws in the back to hold them on...kind of pointless to have finger-screws if i'm going to have to break out a screwdriver regardless.

The instructions for installing hard drives are a bit vague, and one of the 2.5in drive holders was bent out of the box.

GPU Side Fan was really loud too...just unplugged it.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a cheap slot-loading DVD drive, use Newegg # 9SIA14J1051126. I can't remember if it's in the manual, but to install it you'll need to take the metal slot-loading drive cover off of the Sugo case (comes off with 2 philips-head screws) and take the little plastic cover inside of this cover out. Then it's just a matter of taking the DVD drive out of the 5-1/4" holder and pop it in the case. Works like a charm.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Compact form factor
lots of airflow
removable dust filters
Lots of room for video cards
was even able to install a Coolermaster H60i water cooling radiator in it

Cons: Removable dust shields have plastic tabs... one arrived broken. I superglued it back on and has seemed to hold, but i havent removed them yet to clean them. Might have to contact silverstone about a replacement or an extra one

The slim slot load CD keeps the front looking nice, but make sure you do your research first... they can be expensive.

as others have stated the power supply cord compatability with power supplies can be iffy... make sure to know the position of the power connector on your power supply as well as the direction of the cable as some power supplies wont be compatible because of the way the cord hooks in.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great case. This was my first water cooling experiment, and even though its a small case, it worked out great for the most part. However some radiators will probably not allow enough room for a fat video card (i have a quadro 4000 in and it just fits)

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Micro-ATX Case

This review is from: SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: The case is a great small form Micro-ATX case, which allows room for a mid to high spec build without too many problems. There are not many small Micro-ATX cases on the market and this one is truely small.

The build quality is excellent. Made to last.

It can fit long graphics cards and CPU coolers.

The fans supplied are good and quiet, although I have not plugged in the supplied GPU fan yet.

Cons: The space to the hard disks is tight. I was able to get them in, but there is not much room to work.

This case requires a modular power supply as there is little room for cables, which increases the cost of the build.

Only a slim internal optical drive will fit, which again increases costs. Also the Sliverstone CP10 adaptor is required (Item#: N82E16812162016), which is not included in the case if you install an internal optical drive. This should be included since it is an obscure item.

There is not much airflow if two graphics cards are installed. However there are options to the number increase fans around them. Maybe a good SSF watercooling project?

Other Thoughts: In summary the main issues are the cost and the lack of space. The modular PSU and slim optical drive increase costs. However the the build quality of the case is excellent and I personally like the fact it is small.
I really like this case. It's not perfect, but all the cons come from the fact it's small, which I am happy to live with.
My favourate PC build to date.
