Product Description

Combining two of SilverStone's most distinctive computer chassis breakthroughs - the unibody construction of the Temjin TJ07, introduced in 2005, and the 90-degrees rotated motherboard mount of the RAVEN RV01 from 2008 - the Fortress FT02 advances both chassis construction and thermodynamics in a dynamic, streamlined design. With the Fortress FT02, SilverStone engineers have combined the rigidity of unibody construction with the unparalleled cooling layout of the RAVEN chassis, adding a hot-swappable hard drive cage and an acoustically padded interior for maximum versatility. The result is increased structural strength, increased storage capacity, and whisper-quiet operation. Available in black and silver colors, its elegant outer shell is perfectly accentuated by the U-shaped unibody aluminum frame that not only provides unique styling, but also functional purpose. The bottom gap from the frame to the main body actually serves as the main air intake area for its three massive 180mm fans, making it even suitable for use on carpeted surfaces. For professionals and enthusiasts looking to build a silent workstation or gaming machine with maximum performance, there is no better than the SilverStone Fortress FT02.

I got tired of going through loud cheap cases. I've departed from the days of flashing lights, decked out in led fans, and fan controllers. This time around I was set on having a nice quiet build with a case that'll last me through several builds.

This case fit the bill. It was delivered to the office and was immediately surrounded by the geeks and programmers around me. It's a thing of beauty. The thought in design and attention to detail is evidence by the nice finish, huge huge 180mm fans on the bottom (3 of them), the space around the inside cabin for the install, the rubber grommets in the hard drive trays (vertical for better cooling), and I could go on. Even my girlfriend admired it's beauty and took the opportunity to explain that quality purses and shoes are the same way. I now understand how they can even contemplate spending hundreds of dollars on those things.

To address a few of the complaints other reviewers mention. My power buttons were flush. Panels fit square and true. My 7 year old dvd drive was a bit too long so I had to move it down a few brackets but that's an issue of the older drives. The opening for installing a cpu fan, I don't even know what this is about. The case is plenty roomy and has way more room than the typical mid tower. I always install the cpu and cpu cooler on the motherboard first and then move the whole motherboard into the case anyways. On that note, gigabyte x58a-ud3r, i7-920, Zalman cnsp10x quiet, and Corsair TR3X6G1600C7 XMS3 6 GB PC3-12800 fit just right.

As for cooling, I was getting about 31C without the top 120mm fan on. Had plenty of air flow through the case with just the bottom 3 fans. No overclock. There's a nice pleasant low frequency hum. My hp core2 quad at work is much louder.

I've owned this case for almost 2 years and have opened it many times and performed many hardware upgrades within. There were two primary reasons I purchased this: great air cooling and simple, elegant style. While these two aspects are far and away the best attributes of this case, there are so many negatives that I simply cannot recommend it overall. And believe me, I really wanted to love it but I just find myself frustrated every time I have to mess with it. Here's why (in order of most to least annoying):

1. Connections on the top of the case: It's cool to have the cables plug in on the top of the case underneath the vented cover -- this gives the case an overall cleaner 360 degree appearance. However(!!!), with this novelty also comes some frustrations. Specifically, you have to remove the top cover to plug/unplug any device, switch the fans between high/low, or remove either side panel (which also involves 2 thumbscrews per panel). The cover is a real pain in the butt to remove; you need two hands and you need to pull it with firm, even pressure or it will not come off (well, not without possibly breaking the plastic latches). Sometimes it takes me several tries to get it to come off evenly. Along this same vein, my cover tends to rattle on occasion -- the metallic-feeling mesh actually produces vibrations against its plastic frame that take some taps of the hand to remedy (and I'm using low-rpm, low-vibration case fans). One more thing to consider about having the ports on the top is that you might need longer cables and/or adaptors in order to put on the top cover. For example, my second monitor's DVI cable wouldn't reach all the way around my desk to the far port on my video card, so I had to pay extra to buy a longer DVI cable from Amazon.

I've been using this case for a year or more now and I love it! Its massive, and its very sleek and attractive. I love the matte black finish. This is without a doubt the highest quality computer case I've ever owned. The attention to detail is outstanding, and all of the materials are top notch. Sure its big and heavy, but its a desktop, you shouldn't be moving it around anyway!

One of the stand out features is the 90 degree motherboard rotation, so that all your ports and hot air exhaust out the top of the case. This makes perfect sense, being that hot air rises and all. The 3x 120mm fans along the bottom do an excellent job of pulling in cool air, and the filters on them keep your case nice and clean. Additionally, the case utilizes positive air pressure to keep even more dust and debris out. I run a pretty beefy gaming rig and this case keeps it amply cool and clean.

Another great feature of this case is the sound dampening foam on the side panels. Even with the 3x 120mm on the bottom, 1x on top, 1x on the back, nVidia GTX 480, and Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme CPU cooler fans all running on high the case stays relatively quiet. The only downside to the foam is that it can make cable routing behind the motherboard tray a little tight. Its not too big of a deal as you can simply allow the cables to depress the foam a bit, but a little bit more space would be appreciated.

The case I received had none of the defects some of the others mentioned. It was perfectly packaged and shipped on time. The only gripe I have about it is how you remove the top cover. To remove the top cover you have to pull it with some force to lift it up. This could potentially scratch the paint job if you are not careful to pull with equal force on all sides (not easy to do). Other than that, it is quieter and sleeker than my older case the antec p180, which by the way was one of the best cases on the market in the past. One other thing, if you are using a wireless pc internet card, you have to remove the top cover, otherwise the top cover will interfere with the signal.

other than what was mentioned, It is a great case considering its revolutionary design. Heat flows upward as it does naturally and the aluminum side panels ensure adequate heat transfer with the surrounding environment.

If you received a defective case, I would get a replacement because as the majority have commented, this case is great.
