Silverstone SG08 Review

Introduction and Technical Specification.

 Silverstone SG08  

 

Introduction.

The Silverstone SG08 is the latest in the line of SUGO cases.  Measuring only 222 mm (w) x 190 mm (h) x 351 mm (d) and styled not just as a desktop PC but to be comfortable in the home cinema environment the 10mm thick extruded Aluminium front panel means the SG08 won't look out of place sat next to a high end home cinema amplifier or tucked in beside a simple set top box.   The SG08 is able to accommodate DTX and Mini ITX boards as well as having 2 expansion slots and room for GPUs up to 12.2" in length as well as CPU coolers up to 117mm in height.  All that and a Bronze certified 600W PSU.

Thankyou for taking the time to review this.

Wow, I'm liking the GPU headroom space. If only there were more HDD space...

Love the look of this case. I might wonder how loud and hot it would be with dual gpu cards in it, specially if it was used as a media center.

I still have this calling to SFF cases. I really like the idea of them but here I am stuck with my big ugly cooler master. Even if I dont end up going SFF on my next pc, I am for sure gona buy either a Lian Li, Silverstone or Corsair case. Gotta love that clean slick style

Iv owned a silverstone case the sugo sg05....psu failed in warranty ran out contacted silverstone would not sell me a replacement 1 :/

Only real gripes I have with the sugo 05/07/08 is the psu and front cables are 2 bloody long for this case, also the outer side panels feel like paper compared to the rest of the case.

A moduler psu would have been better with shorter cables.
