Pros: It's slim, inexpensive, and works.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: You need a slim SATA cable to hook this up. I used a "BYTECC Model SATA-XP118 18" Sata and Slim Sata Power 7+6pin Cable, for Sata Slim OD," and it worked fine.

SILVERSTONE Sugo Series SST-SG08B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 600W 80+ Bronze Certified / Single +12V rail Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It fits everything it claims to fit. Being able to take out the drive bays makes it possible to route the cables nicely, AND fit everything inside. Airflow over the motherboard seems great.

The instructions are good and easy to follow, if you bother with that sort of thing.

Cons: None. Not as easy to put together as an ATX. But if I wanted it to be as easy to put together as an ATX case, I wouldn't have bought this case.

The 180mm case fan did not fit over the graphics card I got (EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5), because of the placement of the power connector.

Other Thoughts: If you're installing a slim optical drive, a magnetic precision screwdriver will make it much easier.

Right angle SATA cables are necessary to install the 2.5" drives.

For the CPU cooler, I ended up getting the
Prolimatech PRO-SAM17 Samuel 17 CPU Cooler, fitted with a Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Case Fan. They fit just fine, with plenty of room.

Cooling seems sufficient for a Core i5-3570K, and GTX 660, with just the single 180mm case fan. If you're getting a fairly long graphics card, you may want to have a hacksaw handy, in case you have a clearance issue with the case fan, like I did (cut a piece off the fan--not the graphics card).
