SilverStone Sugo SG13B Review

Introduction

Not too long ago there was something of a spurt of interest in Small form factor cases, fuelled by what was seen as the imminent impact of steam boxes on the living room.  For a while at least they were the in thing.  While this furore might have died down somewhat, with the needs of home, office and studio computing still prevalent there is still a need and a place in the market for a well made, well laid out SFF case.  With this in mind Silverstone, long time purveyors of SFF enclosures have brought us the Sugo SG13B.  Measuring 222x181x285mm (WxHxD) it's barely bigger than a standard shoe box, but somehow still manages to find room for regular ATX PSUs, an M-ITX motherboard and GPUs up to 10.5" long.  Previous experience has shown that in order to accommodate everything inside such a small space it's often necessary for compromises to be made.  Best we have a look and see how the SG13 has tackled the problem.

Hi

I think they have the Silverstone SFX very short power supplies in mind for use in this case. They actually make a short cable kit accessory set of cables that would be a huge help for this case. Also, I would even make them shorter. Its a bit of work to de-pin and shorten them and put new pins on, however it would be worth it to get space and airflow in this case.Quote

We have the same problem in a Lian Li PC-Q18B that is currently in disuse because of my recent upgrades, but we plan to use it again soon. Do they make 12 volt EXTERNAL PSUs in the 300-350 watt category (or higher)? Replacing the PSU hole with a blank panel, with just a barrel connector, and putting one of those DC-DC converter boards in for the 3.3 and 5, would free up tons of space.Quote
