Introduction to the Silverstone SG07W Gaming SFF Case
Today, we will be taking a look at a new small form factor case (SFF for short) from Silverstone. We have seen a few SFF cases over the years from Silverstone like the SG-06, but the new SG07 is aimed at the person who wants to be able to build an awesome gaming rig in a relatively small amount of territory.Its ability to accommodate graphic cards up to 12.2 inches in length is what will make SG07 stand out from the others in the SFF case market. Until now there weren't many SFF cases that gave the end-user this much leeway when it came to building their ideal gaming rig. Or one worthy enough to be hauled to local LAN parties at least. So to be able to hold on to that advantage the SG07 also comes with an 80Plus certified 600 watt power supply, easily earning it's "Gaming SFF" title. Yes, the SG07 does offer a lot in the form of features, but there is even more to it than the small size and an 80Plus Bronze rated power supply. But we can't give away all the juicy details in the introduction! You will have to read on to find out more.
What Silverstone has to say about the SG07W
The Sugo SG07, with a size that slots in between the venerable SG01 Micro-ATX SFF case from 2005 and the SG05, a powerful Mini-ITX case released in 2009, was designed to take the Mini-ITX platform to a whole new level. It is twice as powerful as the SG05 but only 37% bigger. Its custom 600W power supply, which is rated up to 50℃with 80 PLUS Bronze level efficiency and single +12V rail, was carefully chosen and optimized for SG07. Exhaustive testing was conducted to create unique VGA fan duct and exhaust vents that enable SG07 to not only accommodate the longest consumer graphics cards physically (up to 12.2 inches/310mm) but also capable of supporting graphics thermal profile of up to 400W through overclocking. For the CPU and motherboard area, a record-breaking use of 180mm fan (bigger than the Mini-ITX motherboard!) with vortex generating design was utilized to provide possibility of fanless CPU cooling of up to 95W (via CPU cooler such as SilverStone’s NT06-E). But despite having tremendous amount of cooling performance, the SG07 is easy to maintain as well. It employs positive pressure layout with all intake areas fitted with removable filters so dust will not accumulate inside. If the goal is to make the ultimate Mini-ITX system, the SG07 is hard to beat.
