When shopping for a new computer chassis, most believe that "bigger is better". If you have enough room at your desk, a full tower case is generally a safe bet. A full size ATX case is easier to work inside, allows for better cooling and affords plenty of room for hardware. It can accommodate additional graphics cards, multiple hard drives, a large power supply, large CPU cooler and in many instances, a full custom water cooling setup.

Of course, a full tower system isn't always desired for a number of reasons. Perhaps you are working in a limited space, need a system that is lightweight / portable or you simply don't need many expansion options. If you fall into this latter category, there are desktop options available that fit the bill. Today we are looking at one such option, the SilverStone SG05-450 Small Form Factor Chassis.

The SG05-450 arrived in the brown cardboard retail box shown above. Features are listed on the front of the box with a complete list of specifications on the side which have been reproduced below, courtesy of SilverStone's website.

The SG05-450 supports Mini-DTX and Mini-ITX motherboards. If you are unfamiliar with these form factors, imagine a motherboard that's about 1/3 the size of a standard ATX board. Despite its small size, the chassis is still able to support video cards up to 9" in length.

Let's move ahead and get further acquainted with the SilverStone SG05-450.
