Final Thoughts

When I was asked to take a look at the SG07, SilverStone was sure to see if I had a card worthy of testing inside the chassis. While the motherboard is weak, I was still able to do my own version of abuse testing in this tiny environment. So after I got the images, I loaded the OS, got the drivers in order, and applied what that card does best as a way to heat up the system. With an adjusted fan profile to match its day to day use in its usual home, I set it to work for Folding@Home. In the Colossus, the usual home for that card, the GPU will max out at roughly70°Cwith a 26°C ambient temperature. Now, after about 10 hours of folding away, I came back and opened GPU-Z to see what was going on. I was very surprised to see that I was pushing WU's in the tiny environment of the SG07 to find that the GTX 470 was working at only 74°C. I know if I was pushing a more power hungry processor in the build, those temperatures might raise another two or three degrees, but these are still very acceptable levels from what I am used to seeing with the Fermi cards.

The build itself was a challenge, but one you get great satisfaction from once you get it all powered up. I found it much like building a model when I was younger. Look at the instructions first; there is a plethora of information that will aid you in your disassembly and build process and also lower the stress level. All I needed were a few images, basic instruction and a Phillip's head screwdriver, and I was able to get things underway and running for the cause. Once the SG07 was assembled and testing, I was impressed with the low noise levels I heard coming from within. I know the GTX 470 can get quite loud if the fan is spooled, but when the Wu was complete and the GPU fan dropped in speed, I wasn't able to tell the Air Penetrator from the GPU fan. For those looking to use this for a HTPC with a lesser GPU, having it in your living room should not be an issue. I actually removed the GTX 470 and used the onboard graphics just so I could see, and I tell you once in a cabinet or on a shelf, the noise from the 180mm fan won't be an issue at all.

In any environment, with just about any GPU on the market today, the SST-SG07B offers an attractive SFF chassis that doesn't require a lot of room. SilverStone has seen the needs of the users, and here I do believe most of those needs are met. Room is tight inside, but with the right products in line to go into the chassis, the restrictions can be overcome, and leave the buyer very satisfied with what they have built. The decision in my mind now is what monitor I have to buy to use the SG07-B daily in my living room. With a wireless keyboard and mouse, I will be all set to surf the net, and do some gaming if I want.

Considering the SST-SG07 will keep even the most power hungry components cool, it offers to do so with the power supply included for what I feel is a great price. I know the listed price at at $209.99 may seem pricy. I will tell you this much as a retort. The SilverStone SST-SG07B is the coolest (both looking and in temperatures), user friendly, solid SFF chassis I have had the pleasure of testing. Comparing that with the prices of many other solutions, I think SilverStone hit the nail on the head here.
