To further increase the appeal of the groundbreaking Sugo SG09, SilverStone engineers crafted a follow-up version in the SG10. The front panel now utilizes a 7mm thick aluminum with a fine filter hidden beneath this has tremendously increased its simple and elegant appearance. Designed as the ultimate SFF with only 23liters, the SG10 retained all of SG09’s features and still able to accommodate standard size components such as ATX power supply, Micro-ATX motherboard, full tower CPU cooler and dual 13.3” high-end graphic cards. For those looking to challenge their own PC building skills in return for a superbly packaged machine that has uncompromised performance and is portable, the Sugo SG10 is the one to get.

* If you intend to utilize all hard drive slots, please remove all unused power supply cables.
These unused cables may cause problem with the installation. SSDs are highly recommended in place of hard drives.
* Maximum length for PSU is 180mm, we recommend 160mm due to varying connector locations on PSUs and the unique structure of SG10.
We do not promise that all retail PSUs on the market can be installed in the SG10. Please refer the guides provided in this manual to select your PSU.

Q. Since hard drives are installed on the backside of the case, how do they dissipate heat?
A: 3.5” hard drives are cooled by the top 180mm fan. We recommend using SSD for 2.5” drives as they are more heat tolerant.
Q. Why use a slim slot-loading optical drive?
A: The total volume of all possible installed fans adds up to 2.4 liters, which is more than the volume of two 5.25” drives.
Since optical drives have the lowest effect on performance, we reasoned that the use of slim optical drive is the best way to reduce the size of SG10.
Q. Will power supply’s exhausted air affect the thermal performance of the case?
A: The top 180mm fan will help to expel power supply’s exhausted air out of the case. According to our testing, the PSU heat will not affect
Q. The extension power cord seems a bit long and thick
A: Since there are no standards for power supply’s power cord connector location, we provide extra length to ensure compatibility.
The SG10 is also designed to accommodate power supply up to 1200W so we used a thicker 15A cable.
Q. Why is the PSU installed horizontally?
A: By installing the PSU horizontally, it will take up less depth compared to installing it longitudinally. With traditional PSU installation, the power
cord will occupy space behind the case therefore the area taken by the power cord is not part of the case measurement.
Q. I have an entry level liquid cooling system, where should I install the radiator?
A: Most should fit in this area (rear 120mm fan).
Q. Everything is properly installed, why does it not start up?
A: If your PSU has an AC switch, make sure the switch is at the “ON” position.
Q. The graphic card overheats, what can I do?
A: SG10 has four fan slots dedicated for graphic cards and provide top-notch cooling ability. If you have installed all extra fans according to our
instruction manual and the graphic card still overheats, please contact the graphics card manufacturer for assistance.
Q. I want to connect all the fans onto the motherboard, what can I do?
A: The SG10 has 6 fan slots and if you include the fan on the CPU cooler, there are up to 7 fan connectors in total. Currently, there are no motherboards
that support this amount of fans, therefore we have included a 1 to 3 fan adapter cable to support more fan connections. Although you can not monitor
the fans through your motherboard when connected to the adapter, this is the best way to connect all the fans.
Below is a list of Micro-ATX motherboards that has the most fan connectors:
6 Fan connectors: DFI Lanparty JR Series, ASRock X79 Extreme4-M
5 Fan connectors: ASUS ROG Gene Series
Q. Does SG10 fit in the Sugo Pack?
A: Yes it does, with room to spare!
Q. If I have a tower-style CPU cooler, is it possible to run it without CPU fan installed?
A: From the tests we’ve conducted during development, a quality tower-style cooler can be used without CPU fan and instead rely only on chassis
fans to cool CPU up to 130W TDP (Core i7, not overclocked). However, performance may vary depending on the quality of your CPU cooler and
other factors, so you will still need to test the limit on your own.
