Installation:

When testing out the SilverStone Sugo SG05 we had installed a Jetway NC92 Atom IPC motherboard that includes an Intel Atom N230 CPU, 2GB of DDR2 memory, and a Super Talent MasterDrive OX SSD. Installing these Intel components into the Sugo SG05 was very easy and everything had come together well -- as is expected from SilverStone and their cases.

This Atom ITX system was running Ubuntu 9.04 and we ran into no thermal issues. Unfortunately, due to sensor compatibility issues with the current release of LM_Sensors in Ubuntu Jaunty, no thermal graphs could be provided with this review. The Sugo SG05 was also quiet with its 120mm intake fan and 80mm power supply fan.

Conclusion:

The SilverStone Sugo SG05 is priced at $100 USD, which may seem as a bit expensive due to its size, but considering it includes a (good) 300 Watt power supply and other SilverStone cases are normally much more expensive, this is not a bad bargain. The case looks very clean, is easy to work with, is quiet, and is built very well. This would be another Sugo SG05 that we are pleased with, even though it does not carry over many traits from earlier Sugo models. SilverStone has also already introduced the Sugo SG06, which they describe as their premier ITX chassis and it includes a 120mm fan with golf fan blades, a nicer front bezel, and a few other minor alterations. The higher-end SG06 will set you back $130 USD.
