I'm building a new computer for a family member and I have chosen the Silverstone SST-SG10B Sugo SG10 USB3.0 case. As a result of it's small design, it has limitations on PSU size and the manual says:

 

"The SG10 supports power supply with depth of up to 204mm. The limitation of power supplies with modular cables is 180mm. We use a specific extension

cord for connecting to power supply’s AC plug, so it does not support large, specialized plug found in extremely high wattage power supplies (e.g. SilverStone
ST1500). If high wattage power supply is required, we recommend the Strider Gold ST1200-G, which conforms to SG10’s dimension and extension power cord
requirements. We recommend using the PP05 short cable kit in addition to its compatible power supply model to reduce cable clutter during installation.
B. Power cord connector limitation: SG10 is designed for maximum space utilization and because of its size constraints it cannot accommodate all the power supplies
on the market. Below diagram marks the allowable area for the power cord connector and the required orientation for the 90 degree power cord connector.
If the power cord exceeds the allowable area, then we do not guarantee it will be compatible."
 
I'm looking into the Seasonic Platinum Series 660 Watt. Does anyone knows if it will fit into this case? The specs say it has a length of 170mm, which is below 180mm...

It should do but it may be a tight fit.

It's a ATX form factor case, so a ATX PSU will work.

It should fit as it's short enough. ATX spec does not say anything about PSU length, only width and height.
