SilverStone Sugo SG02-F

Examination:

The SilverStone Sugo SG02-F has the same footprint as the SG01, but the biggest visible change from the exterior is the ABS and acrylic front panel. This new front panel isn't nearly as elegant as what was found on the SG01 Evolution, but still it's classy and doesn't resemble being a "cheap" case. The power button for the SG02-F is at the top of the front panel and concealed behind a foldout door on the front panel are two USB 2.0, two audio, and one Firewire ports. Behind this door are also the power and HDD activity LEDs and the reset switch. Like the other Sugos, the SG02-F has two external 5.25" drive bays. If you need a 3.5" drive bay, the second 5.25" bay can be converted to the smaller size.

On the top of the chassis are two sets of holes for added ventilation above the 80mm fan mounts in the expansion slot area. On both sides of the chassis are additional holes. Likewise, at the rear of the chassis are holes surrounding the expansion slots, I/O panel, and power supply mount. The expansion slot covers also happen to be slotted. The SG02-F is also compatible with the SilverStone FX121 Cross-Flow Fan.

At the bottom of the case are the quality aluminum feet found on the SG01/SG03 and other SilverStone case series.

Inside the layout remains much the same as the SG01 except for some minor alterations. The internal 3.5" hard drive cage is slightly different and there is an added steel reinforcement on one of the sides. Aside from that, the layout is virtually the same with support for micro ATX motherboards, ATX power supplies, CPU coolers up to 78mm in height (the SilverStone Nitrogon NT06 is a great fit), and dual hard drives. The Sugo SG02-F can fit such extended length graphics cards as the Quadro FX 5600, GeForce 8800 Ultra/GTX, and the Radeon HD 3870 X2.
