SilverStone SUGO SG02-BF Black ABS / SECC Steel MicroATX Desktop Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Compact size; Elegent exterior aesthetics.

Cons: 1.) Somewhat cramped (especially if you plan to fully load it.)
2.) Hard to modify/access build once system is fully assembled (might depend on MB design/layout and other component selections though.)
3.) Front Panel PCB seems susceptable to EMI noise (Tested with a set of Sony MDR-XB700 headphones thru an X-Fi PCI-e Titanium SC). I can literally tell when the system is accessing a drive or ramping up power use if I use the front audio jack. No problems via the on-card jacks.

Other Thoughts: I have a pretty loaded build, so the pain it is to access and mod the innards is partly my fault. (No star deduction.)

I have a tendency to use multiple HDs, so I had to workaround the lack of drive bays a bit with 1x 5" to 4x 2.5" backplane. I wouldn't call it a con though, since that's just a consequence of my usage pattern. (Again, no star deduction.)

The front panel noise though...I wish the PCB was isolated better and/or shielded. I don't use a Mic for anything, so no problems there (I'd used my SC's on-card jacks anyway). USB and FireWire port works fine fo rthe most part. But the heavy interference the front panel can pick up deters me from using the headphone jack. Kinda kills the convenience of having it. The background noise is very noticeable. (<<< This is worth a star deduction.)

Nice case otherwise if you plan on an assemble-and-forget type build.

SILVERSTONE RL-FX121 SFF Cross Flow Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs 08/11/2010

This review is from: SILVERSTONE RL-FX121 SFF Cross Flow Fan

Pros: Fits my SUGO case, no clearance problems. Helps move air through the case system/case. I can only imagine how hot the inside of my case would be (Stock HSF on i7-860 w/ Intel P55 uATX MB) since the case didn't come with many fans to begin with.

Cons: None really...Didn't come with the case?

Other Thoughts: I'll be upgrading my CPU HSF as soon as my Newegg shipment arrives (Zalman 8700 HSF). Hopefully they won't interfere with each other.

Intel X25-M Mainstream SSDSA2MH160G2R5 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast. My bottleneck is my GPU now. (A 5770-based card.)

Win7Ult loads near immediately on log-in, so I don't have to wait for my desktop to be functionally useful. (This is with several programs set up load on start-up too, BTW.)

Cons: Capacity/Price Ratio, though 160GB is plenty for just the boot drive on a desktop.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a faulty SSD I initially received (that was a re-branded X18-M G1 80GB kit). It was an expensive and unexpected change/upgrade at the time. I was hoping to swap out the drives later on when this drive got cheaper...But stuff happens. I'm still happy awith it though: I was gonna buy one at some point anyway.
