For quite some time, SilverStone Technology has been saturating its Lascala and Temjin series with a variety of different enclosures for ATX towers and home theatre cases. Today, we'll be looking at the SilverStone SG01 that marks the inauguration of the Sugo series. The objective of the Sugo series is to create SFF (Small Form Factor) enclosures without the need for a proprietary motherboard or power supply. The SG01 supports the use of any micro ATX motherboard and any ATX power supply. Furthermore, the Sugo SG01 supports three fan slots, and four drive bays while measuring in at a miniscule 263 x 210 x 393 mm. It may look exciting on paper, but can it live up to SilverStone's long product legacy? Read on to find out.
· Cleanly styled aluminum front panel and body
· Intelligent cooling layout for performance or quietness
· Dual 5.25” and 3.5” drive bays
· Micro ATX motherboard & ATX PSU compatible
· Full size expansion slots
Like previous SilverStone Technology products, the Sugo series continues to be packed up to par when it comes to shipping protection. For those unfamiliar with SilverStone's shipping methods, the cases are padded with plenty of Styrofoam and wrapped in thick plastic to protect the case from damage. When receiving and disassembling the Sugo, we found no parts were damaged although the stock I/O panel was knocked out; which generally is no big deal. Also inside of the packaging, we found the SG01 user's manual and the bag of various screws. Like with a majority of SilverStone's enclosures, the SG01 is available in silver and black models; with the model we're reviewing today being silver.
