The SG13 is like its predecessors a very compact Small Form Factor Case with less than 12 liters volume and assumes accordingly motherboards in mini-ITX format on - but that does not mean that it can not record high-performance hardware, quite the contrary , While its predecessors nor the small but noisy and tend to not be very strong SFX PSUs were used, normal ATX power supplies can now be used for up to 150 mm depth in SG13. These are quieter, more powerful and also make a greater contribution to vent the system as SFX PSUs.
The maximum height of the CPU cooler directly below the power supply is 60 mm. But not only in the development but also in the ventilation has done something. Was the SG05 / SG06 of 120 mm fan behind the front have a huge advance over other housings with 80mm fans, Silverstone lays still a good piece cooling performance on top of it and now allows addition 120- and 140-mm fan behind the front - to use together with the consequent possibility of an all-in-one water cooling system with 140 mm radiator in order to keep powerful overclocked quad-core CPUs thermally in check.
For a fast CPU and proper for a decent gaming PC and a fast graphics card, and here allows Silverstone in the best tradition of the Sugo series mounting of specimens that are almost as long as the housing - up to 267 mm length may have a pixel accelerator to fit in the SG13, although the housing itself is only 18 mm longer. This is made possible by a recess in the metal body directly behind the front, whereby the length of the graphics card is actually limited only by the back of the front of the housing and can be obtained compared to the previous few millimeters space.
On the one hand the possibility due to use 140 mm fan behind the front, on the other, due to the changing needs of modern PC systems, the SG13 has no slot for optical drives. In addition to more interior space but this also allows a more elegant front design without unnecessary openings. Directly under the cover behind the front panel of the installation either an internal drive in the 3,5- or two drives in 2.5-inch format is supported on a carrier provided an additional 2.5-inch disk can be mounted on the caseback ,
The purpose is so diverse. In conjunction with strong hardware and the small volume, the SG13 provides initially for LAN party fans held, because such a machine can be equipped for gaming without any problems and at the same time has outstandingly compact dimensions for easy and convenient transportation. On the other hand, the elegant Case offers a compact base as a multimedia center and alternative to classic HTPCs.
