If it's small form factor you want along with a sleek well thought out design inside and out, SilverStone's Sugo SG04 certainly aims to deliver.

The SilverStone SG04B SFF Case

Out of the box you are greeted bay an all black, brushed aluminum exterior, the front of which is rounded and has access to the front I/O to the far left. The twin grooves separate the I/O panel from the center section that hides the intake. SilverStone boldly labels the SG04B with a standout, white moniker across the middle.

The sides of the SFF SG04 are plain with no venting or finger holds, but they sure do look sexy in brushed aluminum. This panel is removed with two thumbscrews seen at the left edge of the chassis.

Looking at the rear of the SG04, you finally get an idea of the layout and just how they get all the equipment into such a small chassis. Moving the power supply above the CPU cooler offers a solution to this, but does leave the SG04 with an 82mm height maximum for the cooler to fit. At the top is a slot for a fan controller. Just below is the motherboards rear I/O panel cutout, followed by four expansion slots. These slots do have a screw-on cover that when removed allows access to the slots mounting screws. The whole rear of the chassis is ventilated to aid in allowing for maximum circulation of airflow.

The top of the SG04 has an unusual shaped front piece that lends to the curve of the front bezel. Further down, past more brushed aluminum, you run into two holes placed in the top panel. I'm still not quite sure what they are used for, unless it is a carryover from the SG04H chassis. They would make sense to me to be the handle mounting holes.

Getting a look at the underside of this chassis, you can see the cast aluminum panels that are ribbed. These are actually what hold the hard drives, on the other side of course, but act as both coolers and feet for the SG04 chassis.
