The Silverstone Sugo SG 07 arrives in a very attractively designed box, with the famous Silverstone logo in the top left corner.
Silverstone have really created such a beautifully understated chassis, those people who hate bright gaudy colours with glowing lights on every surface will be very attracted to this design. The subtle multitone colouring and bevelled edges looks so much better in the flesh. There are several USB 2.0 ports at the front as well as microphone and headphone/speaker jacks. Power and reset switches are lower down, on the edges of the surround.
The rear has a 80 plus Bronze sticker to remind you that there is a 600W power supply included, and its a rather impressive unit too, capable of powering quad core processors and high end graphics cards such as the GTX480 and HD5970. You will also notice the dual PCIe rails on the right, these are removed for graphics card installation. There is also a switch top left which controls the speed of the 180mm Air Penetrator fan, with a ‘low’ or ‘high’ setting.
Underneath, the case has four rubber feet which raise it off the ground and help with air flow. There is also a filtered fan vent for the power supply.
The top of the chassis is home to the massive 18cm Air Penetrator Silverstone fan, and this is also dust filtered (removable), to help keep internal maintenance to a minimum. We have already had an indepth look at this fan before, so head over here to catch up on the review.
This Air Penetrator design gives a very focused direct airflow straight onto the motherboard below which is perfect in a high performance restricted environment such as this.
Both sides of the chassis have many air holes as you can see above. The larger vented area (above left) is to help cool the graphics card area of the internal design.
