A Detailed Look – At the Outside
The SG07 was designed with a minimalist and modern design using brushed aluminum and a two-tone grey color scheme. There are ventilation holes on the left, top, and right panels as well as a large vent on the bottom of the case. Silverstone made room for a slim optical drive, but didn’t add much else on the front panel. The case material includes a plastic and aluminum front panel and an SECC body.
The power button is located on the bottom left corner of the front panel. It follows the same minimalistic design as the rest of the case.
They also added two USB 2.0 ports and audio and mic ports on the front panel of the SG07. Nothing special or unique with these features.
There are two versions of the SG07 — one with a clear side window or another with ventilation holes like the one we received for our review. The ventilation is key because most modern graphics cards, especially those from NVIDIA, tend to run a little hot under load.
The back panel is pretty standard as well. There are two PCI slots at the back of the case for a single or dual-slot PCIe graphics card or a single graphics card and one PCI device. They also added a small reset button on the top-right corner of the case. The power supply connector is also available at the back of the case, but the unit itself is located right behind the front panel of the SG07.
The right panel includes two square-shaped ventilation windows that help cool and exhaust heat from the CPU and power supply.
The top panel includes a large vent for the 180mm “air penetrator” exhaust fan that Silverstone added to the SG07. This fan covers the entire back end of the system and should provide exceptional cooling for the motherboard, CPU, and graphics card.
The bottom of the case is very unique and includes two ventilation holes under the power supply and graphics card. There are also four standard rubber feet that keeps the SG07 secure on almost any surface.
