When it comes to Small Form Factor (SFF) computer cases, one of my favorite for the better part of the past decade has been the SilverStone Sugo series. SilverStone generally is always right on with delivering incredible computer enclosures, but their Sugo line-up in particular have been innovative, feature rich, fun to work with, and all around great when it comes to SFF/HTPC builds. Their latest addition to the Sugo family is the SG09, which I've been testing at Phoronix.

My experiences with the Sugo series go back to the Sugo SG01 in 2005. Even when this case series was brand new, their first product in this line-up was a spot-on success. Since then, I have looked at several other Sugo enclosures, many of which are still happily housing computer components in my office. With the new SG09 enclosure, SilverStone looks at it as redefining performance in small form factor computing by allowing extended height CPU coolers, no real limits on the length of supported graphics cards, and is a substantially different layout from traditional enclosures.

The advertised features on the Sugo SG09 include:

- Micro-ATX, DTX, Mini-ITX Motherboard Compatibility
- 220 x 354 x 295 mm Dimensions
- 2 x 3.5-Inch, 4 x 2.5-Inch Internal Drive Bays
- 1 x 120mm Exhaust Fan.
- 1 x 120mm Side Fan With 2 x 80/92mm Fan Slots
- 1 x 180mm Air Penetrator Top Fan
- 4 x Expansion Slots
- USB 3.0 Connectivity
- Support For Full-Length Graphics Cards
- Support For Full Tower CPU Coolers
- Support For Up To 1000W Strider Plus PSUs
- Mandatory Cable Routing Design
- Ample Fan Slots For Maximum Airflow
- Motherboard Backplate Opening Behind CPU Area
- 5.3 Kilogram Net Weight
- Support For Two Kensington Locks

Included with the SG09 small form factor case were all of the usual mounting accessories needed. The SG09 user manual - as with other SilverStone products -- is quite thorough. Available for purchase separately is the SilverStone CP10 Slim-SATA to SATA adapter for power and data cables.
