Silverstone Sugo SG07: The Ultimate Mini-ITX Case?

Our test system was assembled using a Zotac GeForce 9300-ITX, an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200S, and an OCZ Vertex solid state drive. An ATI Radeon HD-4870 graphics card was added later for a gaming rig test.

The drive cage slides out from the side and can hold 1 x 3.5" and 2 x 2.5" drives. Due to the proximity to the side of the case, perpendicular SATA data cables are required for 2.5" drives.

The hard drive cage is secured with three screws on the right side of the case. The other side has two black pegs that slide into the grommetted holes on the metal frame encapsulating the hard drive, but there is nothing to lock them in place.

For the heatsink we opted for the downblowing Scythe Samurai ZZ. The CPU cooler stands 95 mm and inside the SG07, there was another 24 mm of clearance above it. The Ninja Mini is another option; it has a height of 115 mm so it will just clear the top fan.

Without a graphics card, there is plenty of space next to the power supply for excess cabling.

A 9.5" card like the Radeon HD 4870 can be installed with relative ease. The case supports cards up to 12.2" in length (e.g. Radeon HD 5970).
