SilverStone SUGO SST-SG09B SFF Chassis

The front bezel of the SG09 is plastic, yet SilverStone designed the outer edges to have a texture and look of aluminium. In the middle of this is where there is the slot for the optical drive to accept media with a large opening to allow the PSU fan to intake air, and this section above the I/O is a removable dust filter.

The front I/O panel is basic, but functional. It offers a power button with the power indicator LED nest to it, a pair of USB 3.0 ports surrounding the 3.5mm jacks, and a reset button with the HDD activity LED next to it.

The top of the chassis is one of the three panels that are connected. The panel has a large honeycomb grill on it, and it is removable because it works as a dust filter, and allows the 180mm Air Penetrator fan a way to breathe through the chassis.

The left side of the chassis has ventilation for the PSU exhaust near the top. The bottom section of door panel offers a three fan option with its own removable dust cover. There is a 120mm fan installed now, but you can add a pair of 80mm fans, too.

In the back there is the rear I/O area next to an exhaust fan as expected. What isn't expected is the PSU socket installed at the top corner instead of a large hole for the PSU. At the bottom there are four expansion slots and this chassis will house long video cards.

The right side of the SG09 offers a bump near the front to allow just that extra bit of room for the connections of the power supply. Under this is where you can install another 80mm fan on the inside, and this mesh is where it draws air through.

The bottom of the chassis is solid steel and has a rolled edge where the chassis ends inside the case, and the lower side panel attaches. There are no feet at the moment, as those are shipped in the hardware bag.

I forgot to remove the front panel for this image, but all three sections are just held in with plastic tabs and can easily be removed just by lifting a corner with your fingernail and popping them out for a cleaning.
