Best build so far

Stephen L., Newegg
16 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a great case, and if you want to build a consertative machine, the price will not be outragous. If you want a performance machine the Mini ITX compliant components get pretty pricey.
  • Pros: This computer is by far my favorite i have ever done. i kept building machines so that i could "upgrade them later" and by the time i decided it needed an upgrade, it was not worth the effort. so i built this one to be as full as it could be, and man did it turn out great. when i turned it on the...
  • Cons: obviously the space is limited, so do your research before you buy components. If you invert the top fan to make it an updraft case, then you no longer have any dust filters, but its not much work to pop the case and hit it with a little compressed air every so often. My biggest complaint would b...

It's tight but it rocks

Timothy O., Newegg
15 August 2013
  • Summary: I am pleased with my build: Asus P8Z77-I mini ITX Corsair H60 watercooler Toshiba slimline DVD burner SN-208 I scalped the RAM, CPU, GPU, and drives off my old system. It fit an evga GTX560ti video card with room to spare.
  • Pros: Everything fits snugly, but it is the perfect dimensions for my needs. It fits inside a Zuca bag, and it is small enough to transport easily. I fit a Corsair H60 (2013 model) cooler in there, and it is tight but it works well. The included PSU is more than sufficient. Not any more difficult to bu...
  • Cons: The cables from the 600W PSU are way longer than needed. That just means you have manage your cables, but there is room to sequester them beside the HDD bay.

SFF masterpiece!

He Z., Newegg
2 August 2013
  • Pros: I have this case with MSI Z87I and EVGA 780 SC with ACX cooler. Without going SLI, SFF doesn't get any better than this.
  • Cons: some cables are way too long.

Awesome Mini-ITX case

Jane T., Newegg
26 March 2013
  • Summary: Specs: Case - SILVERSTONE Sugo Series SST-SG08B Black MB - ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz Heatsink - Prolimatech PRO-SAM17 CPU Cooler CPU Fan - Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Fan RAM - G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 2133 GPU - MSI N660-2GD5/OC GeForce GTX...
  • Pros: I love how the case looks and feels. Since this is sitting on top of a desk I didn't want a tower. So I went with this, knowing it wouldn't be the easiest build. The extra effort was definitely worth it. It's impressive and can be a top-notch gaming machine. You do have to be aware thought that t...
  • Cons: Silverstone, why wouldn't you include a necessary adapter? You have to use a slim ODD, and all the ones i found use slimline SATA. Why not provide us with the $5 dollar adapter instead of making us get one. I was dumb and didn't get one right away so didn't have the ODD working until later. Makes...

Great Case and form factor

Monte C., Newegg
18 February 2013
  • Summary: To the N/An reviewer that blamed the case for his rig not posting I say it was the PSU. This happens and I personally think a distinction between the PSU and Case should be made. Sorry it did not work, but two negative reviews for a case that actually is quite good and of which you just happened to...
  • Pros: Great looking case. Great cooling and fits full sized video cards. Simple build and not loud at all.PSU is good. Love the front panel made entirely out of aluminum. Could fit AIO liquid cooler if wanted. Plenty of power cable options.
  • Cons: As many have stated long power cables. Modular would be great and if/when Silverstone comes outs with one of those I will buy it. Wish the PSU was normal form factor as I want a fanless or platinum PSU.

Exactly what we wanted!

John B., Newegg
27 January 2013
  • Summary: NOTE on GPU Power Connector: Others have noted this as well, but I was able to get it to fit by removing the extra ducting piece from the bottom of the fan. This is an additional piece that Silverstone adds onto the bottom of the fan case that screws right off (no hack-saw necessary).
  • Pros: Beautiful high-end styled case, quiet, straight-forward build. Runs cool, fits large graphics card with some modification. This looks great in the media cabinet. Ventilation keeps CPU/GPU cool with stock cooling (and I have the PC in a fairly closed-in space in the media cabinet).
  • Cons: Like others have noted, had trouble fitting the fan with my graphics card with 6-pin connector on top of the card (see note below). Also, only 2 cable ties meant I had to supply a few of my own.

It's small

Carlos L., Newegg
19 January 2013
  • Summary: If you're installing a slim optical drive, a magnetic precision screwdriver will make it much easier. Right angle SATA cables are necessary to install the 2.5" drives. For the CPU cooler, I ended up getting the Prolimatech PRO-SAM17 Samuel 17 CPU Cooler, fitted with a Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Case...
  • Pros: It fits everything it claims to fit. Being able to take out the drive bays makes it possible to route the cables nicely, AND fit everything inside. Airflow over the motherboard seems great. The instructions are good and easy to follow, if you bother with that sort of thing.
  • Cons: None. Not as easy to put together as an ATX. But if I wanted it to be as easy to put together as an ATX case, I wouldn't have bought this case. The 180mm case fan did not fit over the graphics card I got (EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5), because of the placemen...

Heavy Duty

John W., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Pros: I am building a full motion flight simulator and wanted cases that resemble heavy jet LRU's. I installed handles on them and am very happy. I will be having the back stamped out for 4 usb 2.0 slots. A lot of work still on going!
  • Cons: Wish it had provisions for usb on back panel.

Nice Compact Case

Valentin C., Newegg
21 September 2012
  • Summary: Love my case! Wish it would've been a bit wider to accommodate the ASUS GTX 680. So, I guess the EVGA 680 will suffice. Case runs cool with stock CPU setting. Looks great, the fan isn't bothersome. I like it enough to give it 5 eggs!
  • Pros: - Compact, minimalist, functional design - Cool breathable case
  • Cons: - Price Tag - Lengthy cables

Excellent SFF case!

Jonathan C., Newegg
16 September 2012
  • Summary: Given the fact that I was able to cram fairly high-end gaming hardware into this case, I can't deduct any eggs from this case. There is no other case on the market that lets you EASILY fit full-size GPUs and well as AIO liquid cooler and 2 solid state drives, into a case that has less than 15L...
  • Pros: Plenty of space for a full-size GPU, smaller aftermarket CPU cooler or AIO liquid cooler. Excellent case ventilation, fan filters for both the PSU and CPU/top case fan. Great size PSU for the parts you can cram into this case.
  • Cons: The PSU cables are nearly twice the length of the case, making cable management a challenge. The PSU also puts off more heat than I would like, but at least it gets vented directly out the side of the case! Also, the positioning of the 2.5 inch drive bays prevents you from rotating them 180 degre...
