The SG13 is like its predecessor, a very compact Small Form Factor Case with less than 12 liters volume and decreases accordingly Motherboard in Mini-ITX format - but that does not mean that it can not record high-performance hardware, on the contrary, , As with its predecessors, yet the small but noisy and not very strong tendency SFX power supplies were used, normal ATX power supplies can now be used with up to 150 mm installation depth in SG13. These are quieter, more powerful and also make a greater contribution to vent the system as SFX power supplies. 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 120 mm fan behind the front have a huge advance over other housings with 80mm fans, Silverstone is now considering still a good cooling performance on top of it and now allows addition 120- and 140-mm fan behind the front - to be used together with the associated 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 Sugo series mounting of specimens that are almost as long as the housing - up to 267 mm length may vary within a pixel accelerator to fit in the SG13, even though the housing itself is only 18 mm longer. This is made possible through an opening in the metal body directly behind the front, whereby the length graphics card is actually limited only by the back of the front panel and are obtained compared to the previous few millimeters room.
Firstly, due to the possibility to use 140-mm fan behind the front, on the other hand, due to the changing needs of modern PC systems, the SG13 is no slot for optical drives more. In addition to more interior space but this also allows for a more elegant front design without unnecessary openings. Directly under the cover behind the front panel of the installation of either a drive in the 3,5- two drives in 2.5-inch format is provided on a support, an additional 2.5-inch disk can be mounted on the case back.
The purpose is so diverse. In conjunction with powerful hardware and the small volume, the SG13 provides first for LAN party fans, for such a machine can be equipped for gaming without any problems and also has superior compact size for easy and convenient transportation. On the other hand, the elegant case offers a compact base as a multimedia center and an alternative to classical HTPCs.
