Silverstone SUGO Series SG10 Micro-ATX Chassis Review
Peter Donnell / 10 years ago
The first thing I noticed about the SG10 is that it is covered in ventilation areas, there are fan air intakes, fan exhaust, fan grills and more, so I’m guessing airflow shouldn’t be too much of an issue here. The left side is split into two panels, the slow half is a smaller panel while the top half is a larger panel that wraps around the top and right side of the chassis. There is a ventilation area toward the front and along the bottom edge we have three fan mounts. The first fan mount is 120mm (fan included) but also backwards compatible with a 92mm fan, the other two have support for both 80 and 92mm fans (optional). There is a single screw in the center of the panel that joins the two sections together, you are required to remove this to gain access to the chassis interior.
The front panel is super sleek and features a large piece of brushed aluminum that gives it a nice premium look and feel. There is a large mesh section and features a big air intake in the centre, this is to allow airflow to the PSU which is mounted in the front of the chassis.
there are two high quality switches for the power and reset buttons, a pair of high-speed USB 3.0 ports and a pair of headset/microphone jacks. It’s not the best equipped front panel, but it’s enough for most day to day uses and not so much that it looks cluttered.
The right side panel features another small air intake and a slightly raised section of the chassis, this should allow a little more room for PSU cables as it’s directly over the area where the PSU is mounted.
Around the back we have a 120mm pre-installed exhaust fan and four expansion slots with a screw guard, there is also plenty of ventilation thanks to the ventilated expansion slot covers and some extra ventilation to the side of those.
At the top of the chassis we have a two-speed fan controller switch marked and a 3pin power cable hook up for the internal extension cable.
The top of the chassis features a large removable cover for the AirPenetrator 180mm cooling fan.
The bottom of the chassis is pretty clean looking, although you could opt to use the stick on rubber feet that Silverstone provide in the box if you needed to. There is a single screw here that also holds the side panels in place.
