Silverstone SUGO SG09 Small Form Factor Chassis Review
27 February 2013
Conclusion: It has to be fairly clear by this point that I absolutely loved the SG09, no doubt about it. The performance that could be packed into this tiny chassis is simply incredible and no matter how many components I can think about stuffing inside this chassis I still feel like there is some space left...
Summary: Considering everything we have just seen in the SST-SG09B, I really can only say "wow". The looks are outside the box for the typical SilverStone, the ease of access to all of the filters to keep this chassis clean for months or years to come.
SilverStone Sugo SG09 Case Review: Someone at SilverStone Loves Tetris
20 January 2013
Conclusion: I've typically been of the opinion that for builders, Corsair cases are generally novice level while more experienced users can try their luck with SilverStone's more specialized enclosures.
Summary: Silverstone has taken the SG09 a step into a different direction from the rest of the Sugo series. All recent cases in that range are mini-ITX cases, but the SG09 can hold an mATX board. Don't let the naming fool you though. This is an impressively roomy chassis for its size.
Pros: Extremely compact in volume for a potent mATX chassis, Can easily fit massive CPU coolers, Plenty of space for long dual-graphic card setups, Full size ATX PSU easily fits, 4x 2.5 inch and 2x 3.5 inch bays, Slimline ODD bay, 180 mm FDB Air Penetrator fan on the top, 2x USB 3.0, USB 3.0 to 2.0 ada...
Cons: Glue-on feet, No eject button for ODD, Air penetrator fan is audible at full speed, Hard drive bays hard on the limit of what is possible with cables in the space given, Design deviates from that of previous Sugo series cases, Basic I/O
Summary: With the Sugo SG09, SilverStone mixed elements of the SG07 and Fortress FT03 in its design, resulting in one of the most interesting case we've examined all year. Producing a 23 liter microATX tower while maintaining support for most enthusiast components (tall CPU heatsinks, long graphics cards) is...
Summary: The SilverStone Sugo SG09 is an excellent choice for the user who is building a small form factor (SFF) computer and wants a product that fits a microATX motherboard and a regular-sized power supply. It easily allows you to build a small yet powerful gaming PC.
Pros: Excellent cost/benefit ratio, Support for a regular-sized ATX power supply, Support for microATX motherboards, Air filter for the left, top, and power supply fans, Big 180 mm fan on the top panel, Two-speed controller for the top fan, Anti-vibration rings for 3.5” hard drives, Support for two 3.5...
Cons: Could come with thumbscrews for fastening expansion cards
Conclusion: We're pretty impressed with the Sugo SG09. It's a wonderful feat of engineering, as the case is about as small as micro-ATX cases are likely to get but makes no compromises in terms of the hardware you can put in it, and demonstrates that it can cool said hardware effectively too.
Conclusion: SilverStone set out to make the smallest possible micro-ATX computer case they could that could still serve as the basis of a high-performance system. The SUGO SG09 is it, but as with all things there are tradeoffs.
Pros: Unique design allows high performance components in a very small case, Included Air Penetrator fans for motherboard area and graphics cards, Uses (most) standard ATX power supplies. Technically., All air intakes have easy to clean snap-off filters
Cons: Replacing the top/side cover is a nail-shredding pain, Internal cables are far too long for this case, making cable management difficult, Clearance problem with top fan and optical drive cable make it easy to kill your drive, No integrated memory card reader, Design almost mandates the use of a S...
Summary: The SilverStone Sugo SG09 Case is one of the best SFF cases on the market. There are plenty of fans included and more can be added, lots of drives can be installed & fits standard ATX PSUs. Also, it accommodates full length video cards and CPU coolers.
