The major drawback many SFF PCs face is the small choices available for the user in terms of components. Many a times, you will have to stick with the motherboard , cooler and power supply that comes with the SFF case. Silverstone’s SG01 is an answer to this limitation as it opens up the doors to many other choices when picking your PC components.

The major drawback many SFF (Small Form Factor) PCs face is the
small choices available for the user in terms of components. Many a times, you
will have to stick with the motherboard , cooler and power supply that comes
with the SFF case. Silverstone’s SG01 is an answer to this limitation as it
opens up the doors to many other choices when picking your PC components.

Specifications:

The SG01 comes in two colors, Aluminumn Silver (SG01s) and Glossy
Black (SG01b). The one we are reviewing is the SG01s. It measures 263 mm (W)
x 210 mm (H) x 393 mm (D), noticably bigger than the usual SFFs that come in
at around 220 mm (W) x 210 mm (H) x 325 mm (D). However, it is not that much
bigger and in most situations, it comes quite on par with the competition in
terms of space-saving. It also does not weight much more than its conuterparts,
especially since it is full Aluminum.

 

 

The simpe package that comes with the SG01, consisting of a user’s manual,
and I/O plate and a bag of screws. Don’t see the need for anymore anyhows.

 

The sleek and smooth case. I like its simple look. For the attention seekers
though, this may disappoint.

 

The Front I/O Panel. The audio ports, 4 USB ports and firewire port is accessible
here. As per Silverstone’s practise, the round metailic power and reset buttons.

 

The ventilation holes at the sides and the top.

 

A look from the rear. Here you see the Power Supply position at the exhaust,
with the back I/O panel layout.

A 60 mm fan is pulling hot air out.

It is only 0.12 Amps and thus is very silent, great for most SFF users who
are after silence and ease of use.
