Product Description

As SilverStone engineers started working on the third model for the Fortress series, they had contemplated on the future of computer chassis and ways to improve it for home/office integration. So the Fortress FT03's design goal was to simply give back as much user space as possible by reducing chassis depth to unprecedented level. The engineers also wanted to accomplish the change in design without compromises to the chassis's ability in accommodating upper mainstream components. Traditional computer chassis designs take up desktop room by not only their physical footprint, but they also require additional space for cable connections. With the FT03, there are no such restrictions because its beautiful, 2.5mm thick, sand-blasted and anodized aluminum outer shells have no cable connectors to be found on all four sides, which frees up tremendous amount of desktop real estate for its users. The interior of the chassis utilizes Silverstone's unique stack effect cooling layout so a Micro-ATX motherboard is mounted in 90 degree rotation to take advantage of hot air's natural tendency to rise. This design also enables the FT03 to support graphics cards that are as long as 13.7 inches without the chassis taking up similar room depth-wise. In addition, the chassis also supports three 3.5" hard drives with one capable of hot-swapping function and one 2.5" drive bay for excellent storage flexibility. For a chassis that may redefine a new design direction for the desktop computer with its revolutionary new proportion and usage model, the Fortress FT03 is simply perfect for anyone looking to build a striking yet fully functional and discreet system.

I was looking for a case that was big enough to hold a large video card (think HD 7970), and a huge CPU cooler, while also being a bit portable. When I saw the Silverstone Tek Carrying Bag for Sugo Series or Other SFF Cases (SUGO-PACK) I knew it was going to be very portable. And the specs claimed it could hold bigger video cards than are in existence today, and could handle CPU coolers up to 167mm. They don't lie. I've got a 160mm Thermalright True Spirit (120) and a Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC 3GB DDR5 HDMI/DVI-I/Dual Mini DP PCI-Express Graphics Card 11197-01-40G. The video card fit with the stock setup well enough. But I decided to pull the bottom 120mm fan that is at a 45 degree angle and use the optional setup witch is 2 flat mounted 80mm fans at the bottom. With that set up the video card has inches of extra room.

Here's a few tips if you get this case to save you time.

-A Corsair H80 may work. It depends on your motherboard and your patience.

-You have to use a slim line optical drive, something like this: Sony 8X SATA Internal Slim DVD+/-RW Drive Bulk with out Software (AD-7690H-01). To use that drive you need a special power/sata connector that won't come with the drive or your PSU.

I bought this case from Amazon about a year ago and ran the following system:

i7 2600k @ 4.4Ghz
ASUS Maximus V Gene (Z77)
TT Frio CPU cooler
GTX680s (SLI)
Silverstone 1000W Silver Strider PS
Silverstone Short Cable Kit

I don't have a lot of room on my desk for a big system and this case fits.

The footprint is roughly the size of a piece of letter paper (it's actually slightly wider)

Many people wonder just how much power you can fit in one of these and I now believe it's only limited by the physical constraints of the form factor.

Last week, I upgraded to new GTX780 cards (I run NV Surround) and they stay cool and quiet in this case. They have the Titan style cooler and they do fit, but with about 2mm of clearance.

A couple things to keep in mind if you're going for a maximized system:

1. Video card cooler selection is essential. Get the traditional blower type cards where the radial fan is at the rear and the air blows out the other side of the card. If you have a card with multiple fans or a card (Twin Frozr) that blows air out the front and back (GTX690) then you're going to have problems but dual 780s is no problem and I'm sure dual Titans would work just as well as long as:

2. You need to upgrade the fans. The Silverstone fans are OK, but in my opinion, they are not designed for a beastly system build. Do yourself a favor and buy some Gentle Typhoon AP-15 fans. I put one on the top of the case (exhaust) and one right below the video cards (at an angle).

As long as you build smart and think things through, you can put a lot of power in these cases.

My next upgrade will probably be a 3930K on the Rampage Gene board, but we'll see...

I wrote that title because if you could install a little fake foot pedal on the side of the unit it would look exactly like many of those garbage cans out there that you can open the lid on with a foot pedal. The unique look of the case is what initially attracted my attention to it, however as I read about it the design of it persuaded me to make the purchase.

The case is surprisingly easy to work with, but be prepared because it's still rather cramped. All four sides of it pop off to help during the assembly process which makes it much easier to deal with the close confines. That materials included with the case are all solid with the exception of the plastic top which I get a little nervous removing because it could be fairly easily broken if you apply too much force. One thing that is a definite must with this case is a modular power supply with the option of using short cords which as luck would have it Silverstone also just happens to sell! You're simply not going to have a good spot in the case to stuff a bunch of unused cables when you're done with the build.

Closed loop liquid coolers like those shipped by Corsair and Antac will fit in the case with a few caveats, the first being that the radiator must be fastened to a fan which is then attached to the case. You won't be able to attach the radiator directly to the case without some serious cutting and weakening of the case. Also with a radiator in it you'll most likely find that you'll not be able to use the bracket for the 80mm fan that sits at the top of the case to blow onto the PCI slots (ie put extra air flow on the graphics card.)

Even with the lose of the top 80mm fan though the air flow through the cramped case is excellent.
