I want this one so badly ...



263 mm (W) x 216 mm (H) x 393 mm (D)



Weight: 3 Kg only ! ... I would love to see some moddings. How about a big window on the top ?



2 x 3.5" internal and 2 x 5.25" external bays ... wouldn't it be possible to replace the 80mm fan with a 120mm one ?



Completely Aluminum ! ... not like the SG02 = part alu / part plastic / part steel



(c) www.epiacenter.com

The space gap between the CPU on the mATX board and the power supply is 80mm only.
So it has to be a low profile cooler. The good news is that it could be a passive cooler as the fan of the power supply could take care of the air flow.

I could imagine the Zalman CNPS8700-NT with 67mm height as a good solution.
Besides this, it comes with a 4 pin PWN fan connector for variable rpm and awesome blue light.

As powersupply I like the Silverstone ST50EF-Plus SC with temperature regulated fan and shorter cables, specially made for SFF cases ... or maybe the Corsair HX520W Modular.

This case has no problems with the size of a GeForce 8800 GT.
I personally would replace the I/O sockets on the front with a plain plate to keep the clean looks.

Just imagine SSD will replace our noisy hd ... how quiet our PCs could be

That's the silver version of my case, empty, of course. I guess the only thing that I don't like about my case is the lack of a removable motherboard tray, which is quite annoying.

With my Blue Orb I have about a quarter-inch left. The manual for the Sugo-01 states that you are only supposed to use a HSF of up to 76-78mm in height.

Very nice - I would have picked this up earlier this year. It is still too expensive for me, but I am sure the price will go down over time.

...Burp...

Come on people let's see more SFF builds, they don't get enough attention...

I second Ronin's suggestion of sticky status.
