Sleek but faulty

Sabrina B., Newegg
27 June 2012
  • Summary: I understand that these kinds of these can happen with a new build but I was expecting better customer service.
  • Pros: The size, look and interior space are all great. This was my first build and even though the real estate was limited I had no problem fitting everything in and connecting everything together, including the EVGA 480 video card.
  • Cons: While I'm a fan of the case overall I can't go higher than three eggs because the custom built-in PSU blew on me while installing the OS. I shipped it back to the manufacturer ASAP. After calling they've indicated it's been received a week ago but they've made no effort to let me know the issue o...

Good case

James B., Newegg
25 June 2012
  • Summary: A good choice for a mini-ITX build. Sturdy/well-built plus a power supply without taking up too much space made this the perfect case for my needs.
  • Pros: - Small size makes it easy to move around (reason I chose mini-ITX) - Built-in power supply is strong and reliable so far - Room for more components and drives than seems possible - HUGE fan. Seriously, it's massive. Since it's bigger than the motherboard, it keeps the entire system under 70 degr...
  • Cons: - Not exceptionally easy to work with, especially since there are so many cables in such little space. I simply could not plug in the HD-audio case header because of the location on the motherboard (right under the video card... why?). If some of the cables were a bit shorter, or there was more r...

Awsome mini itx, sort of

Benjamin C., Newegg
20 May 2012
  • Summary: For itx cases, why the heck would you put in such long cable for such a small case. I'm really irritated by this because of poor air circulation in mini itx. the extra length does nothing but causing more heat issues. Do Silverstone makes a PSU that has shorter cable for this case?
  • Pros: Just like all high end Silverstone cases, beautiful design. Looks good in every angle.
  • Cons: The PSU 24pin cable is about 3 feet long. Why in world you Silverstone put such long cable in mini itx case? That's just poor design or just too lazy to make PSU with shorter cable for such small itx case. The fan control could be better by using turn nob instead of a switch. The reset button, oh...

Sturdy little SFF

Ron L., Newegg
14 May 2012
  • Summary: Based on reviews I read about this before I ordered it, the very first thing I did was take it out of the box and tested the power supply with a power supply tester. All voltages read fine. I had doubts that my Evga GTX 480 would fit due to the heat pipes that protrude from the side, but it does.
  • Pros: Well laid out design. Removable hard drive cage can hold one standard mechanical drive and two ssd or laptop sized drives. I like the fact that this series by Silverstone has a one piece removable shell which makes it a breeze to work on. Nice looking case once complete. This was the smallest and...
  • Cons: I really can't think of any. Maybe that the reset switch is located on the back of the case. I would rather it was on the front, opposite of the power button. That, and the power supply should be full modular for the cost.

Nice case, but you may need taps

John V., Newegg
26 April 2012
  • Summary: This really is a great case, just be warned that you may need to go buy a tap set to retap the threads before assembling your computer.
  • Pros: Great design, very compact. Good design for getting a powerhouse in a very small form factor.
  • Cons: I just purchased my second one of these cases to make a computer for my dad. The first one was over a year ago and had no problems. The second one had paint in all the holes, which caused all of the screws to be damaged. When trying to put in one of the motherboard screws it broke off with very l...

Great mini-ITX case, minor issues

Lawrence S., Newegg
10 March 2012
  • Summary: This is the perfect case if you are looking to build a powerful mini-itx computer. The only problem I have with the case is that it can easily overheat in small areas. It is positively cooled, meaning all fans suck in air and the air just naturally goes out of the side holes.
  • Pros: -Just about as small as a case you can get that will fit a full size video card. -Excellent cooling design -600w PSU -Sexy
  • Cons: -Case can easily overheat if you aren't careful -Nowhere to put cables

great case with a little work

Kevin S., Newegg
12 December 2011
  • Summary: FYI, the NT06E heatsink will fit, it may require some bending of the heat pipes though to allow clearance for whatever add-in card you put in your PCI Express slot. Motherboard - Intel DH67CF CPU - Intel i7-2600 Memory - Kingston HyperX 1333 2x4GB VGA - Gigabyte GV-R695OC-1GD Case - Silverstone Sugo...
  • Pros: Fits nearly all fullsize cards Best mini-itx layout i've seen with this small of a footprint
  • Cons: --Chassis fan speed toggle switch - when connected to a PWM fan header on the motherboard and switching the fan to "low" either the fan or my motherboard starts to emit an electrical buzzing noise. With the fan set to "high" the fan doesnt get above ~650rpm. I solved this by bumping the fan duty ...

PSU better than expected

Anonymous, Newegg
29 November 2011
  • Pros: Running stock i5 2500k and a GTX 590 and so far been chugging along with no hickups. Even though half of the 590's exhaust expels within the case, it gets pushed out the side pretty well. Been running BF3 and Skyrim at max, no problem. Surprised I didn't have to upgrade the psu.
  • Cons: Cable management, that was expected with a small form factor
