SUMMARY

The case has 2x USB 3.0 ports and power button located on top of the chassis and included air filters on top, front and side panels. There is also easy access to the motherboards rear M.2 slot and cooler mounting. This allows for easy installation and removal of CPU coolers, while the motherboard is installed in the case.

Air intakes through the front of the case and exhaust at the rear. The CPU cooler and GPU are both able to draw additional airflow through the side panels.

Large air coolers are supported upto 172mm in combination with SFX power supply and 85mm when paired with ATX power supply. 120mm AIOs are also supported in front case position, if air cooling doesn’t fit your preference. Dual slot GPUs upto 275mm in length are supported with easy entry point through the front of the case.

We recommend using an SFX power supply with the SG16, this allows for use of 120mm AIOs or front 120mm fan. You should also be able to use large air coolers like the Noctua NH-U12A chromax.Black (paid link) in the SG16 for serious air cooling potential.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
