SilverStone’s SG14 case is impressive in comparison to similar Mini-ITX cases available. Its design makes it a very easy case to build in, with plenty of space and easy access to components with all panels being removable. For the price, volume and quality of the SG14, you can’t really go wrong choosing this Mini-ITX case.

The SG14 features extensive configuration as the case has the ability to be mounted height or width ways. For optimal cooling performance, use the top fan position for intaking air and rear fan position for exhausting air. The case is 19.5L in volume, however you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s smaller, when you orientate the case width way.

We ran CPU-Z in combination with MSI Kombustor at 4K for 10 minutes in our system stress test.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
