Silverstone SUGO 16 case Mini-ITX

PC case manufacturer Silverstone has unveiled its latest Mini-ITX PC, the Silverstone SUGO 16 cube-style Mini-ITX case. The case is a little on the larger side at 13L with support for an ATX power supply, 120mm water cooling, and a 3.5″ hard drive.

The SUGO 16 comes in a white and black variant and looks to be more of a transitional case as it supports the larger ATX form factor of power supplies. Using an SFX power supply with an ATX to SFX bracket would allow for more room in the case.

Looking at the rest of the components it looks like the case supports up to one two slot GPU and a Mini-ITX motherboard. At the front you have the choice to either equip an 80mm fan, 2.5″ SSD, or a 3.5″ HDD. Looking at the rear of the case a 120mm fan or 120mm radiator and 120mm fan can be installed depending on your cooling preference.

The top of the case features a vent with a dust filter for GPU cooling with a headphone microphone combo jack, two USB-A ports, a restart button, and a power button. It would have been great to see at least one USB-C port included, especially nearing the end of 2021. The side of the case also has a vent for passive cooling.

Overall, it seems like a good case for everyday builders but doesn’t suit those that are looking for something extra special. Due to the component restrictions and having to choose one component or the other this case is definitely not something we will be looking at.
