Silverstone was founded in Taiwan in 2003 and is a globally established manufacturer of PC components. These include power supplies, computer as well as server cases, CPU coolers and case fans. In August 2020, Silverstone expanded its SFF segment and introduced the Sugo 14 or Sugo 15.
Behind this name is a compact case for ITX components. Compared to many other SFF cases, the Sugo 14 also offers space for larger components despite its compact dimensions. For example, there is room for large CPU coolers, long graphics cards and larger case fans. There is even a hidden space for an external 5.25″ drive. All this with a volume of just 20 liters. Price-wise, the Silverstone Sugo 14 starts at € 107.71 and is available in a black or white variant. Find out if the Silverstone Sugo 14 can live up to expectations and how it performs in general in this review.

Scope of delivery
Packaged the Silverstone Sugo 14 in a plain brown cardboard box with a product image, technical specifications and key features printed on it in black lettering. Inside the box, the case is wrapped in soft foam and foil. The soft foam in particular should cushion falls well and thus prevent severe damage during transport. The included accessories are not inside the case, as is usually the case, but have been placed in one of the foam molds. The two bags contain all important screws, a few black cable ties and a decorative cover for the 5.25″ bay. Also included are the pre-installed case fan (120mm), various magnetic dust filter mats and eight rubber feet to stick on. An assembly manual is not included, but can be downloaded from the homepage.
