Up Close: Exterior
The Silverstone Sugo SG13B has to be one of the smallest cases we've reviewed here at OC3D. Measuring just 222x181x285mm (WxHxD) it's only just big enough to bury a budgie in. As with many SFF cases, where airflow is at a premium, a good percentage of the cases enclosure is given over to natural ventilation. In the case of the SG13 both side panels and the roof have large perforated areas which although not having fan mounts do allow warm air to leave the case.
The case front is also entirely mesh with an interesting shallow pyramidal pattern on it, and in an effort to extract every last morsel of ventilation the sides of the front panel have hex mesh cut outs.
The front I/O is situated un obtrusively in the bottom right hand corner of the case front, separated from the power button which lives up on the top right case corner.
Around the back we can see from the position of the cut-outs that the motherboard is going to be sitting directly underneath the PSU. This we think gives the first hint at a compromise Silverstone have had to make to fit everything in so tightly as it's likely that Max CPU cooler height is going to be severely limited. On the underside we can see that the case sits on four good sized and solid rubber feet, with the four holes in the bottom left looking to be a mount for a floor mounted 2.5" drive.
