We've been looking at a few mini-ITX enclosures as of late, an interest sparked largely by the surprise success of the Bitfenix Prodigy and the general industry tend towards smaller, more powerful systems. As I've mentioned before, the fact is...

The SilverStone SG05-450 has been a lot of fun to work with and has managed to surprise me on a few different levels. The first thing that stands out, aside from the tiny footprint, is the fully painted chassis. Unpainted steel interiors scream...

The SG05 performed great for our SFF build. There are a few things that could be improved to make this case even better. We would love to see some noise dampening on the hard drive bay and the power button light is very bright and proved to be...

The Silverstone SUGO SG05 is an impressive little case. Usually you have to compromise a lot if you do not want a big case but in this case it is fully possible to put in good performance components. It supports regular CPU-coolers, it supports...

The Silverstone SG05 and SG06 are welcome additions to the slowly expanding range of mini-ITX cases for DIY system builders. This is a sector that was once served by industrial/commercial case suppliers, complete SFF PCs from specialized vendors, or...

The SilverStone Sugo SG05 is priced at $100 USD, which may seem as a bit expensive due to its size, but considering it includes a (good) 300 Watt power supply and other SilverStone cases are normally much more expensive, this is not a bad bargain....
