Although the Sugo SG01 was another excellent offering from SilverStone, it did have a few compatibility issues and problems worth mentioning. Although these problems will only affect a very small portion of users, it’s important to consider the two obvious conflicts of the CPU cooler needing to be smaller than 78mm in height and the combined length of the power supply and optical drive(s) can't be greater than 355mm. In addition, there was the compatibility problem we spotted where with some graphics cards, and other peripherals with external ports near the top of the slot, the external 60mm fan mount may block part of the port. With a selling price of $190 USD, the Sugo SG01 is by no means cheap but superb build quality does come at a cost; as Lian Li has demonstrated repeatedly. If you're looking for a smaller micro ATX chassis that still packs the punch of a much larger chassis, the SilverStone Sugo SG01 may just be the chassis for you; permitting the few compatibility problems.
