Up Close:  Interior

The removal of four screws from the rear of the case enables the roof and side panel section to be removed as a single piece.  Doing so gives acces from the top as well as both sides.  peering into the front of the case from an elevated position at the rear affords us a look at the area behind the front mesh panel, which although spacious and able to accommodate a 120mm or 140mm fan does not in fact come with either.  If you're running a low power case with integrated graphics this isn't going to be a huge problem, but if you're planning on generating any sort of heat in there then it'd be worth investing in a case fan for this position.

Aside from four pre fitted M-ITX motherboard stand-offs,  the actual interior of the SG13B is pretty empty aside from a removable roof panel bracket that serves to undersling either a pair of 2.5" drives or a single 3.5" drive.  The bracket seen hanging down in the image below right is there to give support to the PSU when fitted.

The case front can also be removed by means of releasing a few screws taking us right back to the bare bones of the case.  The unusual cut out shape of the chassis panel allows for the 120/140mm fans as well as a last little bit of room on the left for the max GPU card length of 10.5"

Once off we see that the front panel actually has an easily removable filter and that in typical Silverstone fashion, showing great attention to detail, even the small mesh side panels slits have small filters in them.

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
