General   + -
The Silverstone SG13Q really impressed us. Despite its small size and a rather low price, this case offers plenty of space even for entry-level or mid-range gaming systems which are equipped with either mini-ITX video cards such as the GTX960 or the R9 285. In addition, the SG13Q is compatible with medium sized ATX power supplies, which is always a bonus on such small cases. The build quality is on a good level and we couldn't find any particular problems while installing components. Like any very small case you're bound to use a low profile CPU cooler. Nevertheless, what's great is the fact, that there is also space for an all-in-one watercooler with 120/140 millimeter radiator.  

-Price - Internal space - Build quality - ATX PSU

-No pre-installed fan
-No tool-less
Manufacturing quality / Ergonomics   + -
SG13Q is made of black painted, high quality steel. The bulkhead, with "U" shape, is rather light but we couldn't find any sharp edges or sluggish finish. The mounting process was easy and very simple, so we have not found anything to report and there is also a lot of space to work with components. We particularly enjoyed the internal layout regarding the storage devices since the SG13Q allows you to install one 3.5" HDD and one  2.5" drive.  

- High quality materials - HDDs space

Design / Layout   + -
The design is clean and simple, and the lines of the Silverstone SG13Q are timeless. This is a very well though case and therefore it's also great on the inside. The only thing, which was really surprising is, the fact, that there was no fan in the delivery. On the other hand, related to cooling, we were able to install an all-in-one watercooler, which is just great.   - Design
- Space for medium size GPU

Recommendation   + -
If you are looking for an ITX cube case with a clean and elegant design then Silverstone SG13Q is definitely the case to consider. Apart from that this case is also able to convince from a build quality point of view. For 47 Euro you can get a very compact case, which allows you to build HTPCs or even small gaming rigs.

The Silverstone SG13Q gets good 4.5 out of 5 stars.
