Accessing the inside of the SG09 isn’t the simplest task as a result of the unusual side panel design. There are two sections that need to be removed; one large section that spans the right side, top and half of the left side of the system and a smaller panel which covers the remainder of the left side of the system.
The smaller side panel features three fan locations, two 80/92 mm and one 120 mm. The 120 mm vent is populated with a 120 mm Silverstone branded unit which spins at 1200 rpm.
Silverstone has continued the black theme throughout the inside the case. This should compliment most component choices aesthetically. The case supports Micro ATX motherboards even though we will be documenting the installation process with a mini-ITX motherboard.
The motherboard stand-offs are pre-installed into the case which saves a few minutes when building a system in the case. There is also a large cut-out in the motherboard tray for installing CPU cooler backplates.
Over on the right hand side of the case there is a large void where the power supply must be installed. This features a removable bracket which helps secure the power supply in place.
Moving round the back of the motherboard tray, there is a fair amount of room for cable routing. This is necessary as all of the hard drive and solid state drive mounting points are located in this area.
