Silverstone Sugo SG07 Review (featuring Zotac H55 ITX)

Rating: 9.0.

Silverstone have created some stunning products and we have always been avid followers of the Sugo Range which redefined small form factor chassis designs when they were first released, making HTPC both practical and quite beautiful to look at.

The Sugo range has been in production for many years now and the seventh series has just been released … today we look at the Sugo SG 07 which aims to deliver enough cooling prowess to allow for high performance systems with maybe even a little overclocking.

The SG07 comes supplied with a killer 600W 80Plus Bronze power supply which copes with almost all single card solutions. Inside there is also a 180mm AP181 Air Penetrator fan, which we reviewed a short while ago. The main talking point however is the fact that this chassis can also house a graphics card up to 12.2 inches long which means, yes it can cope with a HD5970 (12.2 inches exactly) which we think is rather stunning.

Silverstone are also keen to promote the fact that the chassis and the power supply can handle the new nVidia GTX480 and even with the heat pipes on the top, it fits perfectly inside. All you need do is remove the fan frame (see above).

For testing today we would like to thank Zotac for their kind support in offering a H55 Mini ITX board (Zotac H55 Mini ITX Wifi) which is retailing in the UK for around the £100-110 mark. This board is fully loaded and has such a comprehensive feature list you would be forgiven for thinking it was in fact full size. This board is a 1156 slot design on the Intel H55 chipset with support for up to 8GB of DDR3-1366mhz. It also has a full 16 x width PCI e slot for graphics cards.
