   Part #: FT01B

Features    [ Edit | History ]

Introduction
 More than two years after the introduction of the world’s first uni-body PC chassis, the SilverStone Temjin TJ07, a new product line was created to extend this unique construction further into other applications. The first model for this line is the Fortress FT01, which sports the same super strong uni-body frame as its predecessor but with even more sleeker profile thanks to its smaller size. Comprised of modern touches such as quick release drive cages and dual 180mm fans, this case is easily the top choice for anyone looking to assemble a top of the line midsize system.
 
  Special Feature
 Uni-body frame construction from the flagship Temjin TJ07
Artful, understated design with excellent ergonomics
Dual 180mm silent fans included for outstanding cooling and quietness
Minimal use of rivets for maximum serviceability
Highly flexible drive storage options with hot-swappable SATA adapter
  
 
  Remark
 
 
 FT01 can support 10.5” consumer level graphics cards.
The support for this type of cards does not require HDD cage to be removed.
  FT01 can support 12” workstation level graphics cards.
To support such long cards, the middle HDD cage must to be removed.
 
 Graphic card length reference:
NVIDIA Quadro FX5600 / AMD FireGL V8600/8650 - 12"
NVIDIA GeForce GTX280/260 - 10.5“
NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX/9800GTX+ - 10.5“
AMD Radeon HD 4870X2 - 10.5 "
NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT/9600GT/GTO - 9"
AMD Radeon HD 4870/4850 - 9 "
If an expansion card is longer than 10.5", the middle HDD cage needs to be removed, please refer to the Q&A section for more information.

Pros
Sturdy, well-crafted case. Looks fantastic. Huge, quiet fans. Easy, no-tool installations.
Cons
No motherboard tray, and no backplate cutout. Not a ton of room behind the motherboard (largely due to door panel insulation). Some concerns over GPU cooling.
Summary
This is a top-of-the line case in most aspects, and adding a removeable mobo tray (with cutout), and a bit more room behind the motherboard for cabling would make it perfect. Overall a fantastic choice though, and nothing looks better.

Pros
Very clean design
Extra features are a nice touch
Quiet fans
Cons
No removable motherboard tray
Quality not as good as I'd expect for the price
Top fan filter is nearly impossible to remove.
Summary
I chose this case to replace my 4+ year old Lian-Li PC65B. I liked the idea of the positive air pressure design, and the extremely clean and sexy design of the one-piece aluminium exterior.

Overall quality of the case is very good, but it is not comparable to the quality of Lian-Li. I do feel that this case is overpriced, only from a quality standpoint. Had I known this going in, I would have chose another Lian-Li case instead. I'm not disappointed, I just feel that I paid too much for what I received.

My biggest issue has to be the lack of a removable motherboard tray. Although there is ample room to work inside of this case, a removable tray is a nice touch.

On the positive side, the fans are all quiet and of high quality. The fact that the extra hard drive tray is removable is nice, for those of us not needing room for more than 3 drives.

Overall a very good case with only a few minor annoyances. I wouldn't purchase it again (still rating 4 stars because it deserves this rating), but don't take that as a big negative, I just prefer Lian-Li after having owned both.

Pros
Installation was easy. and it looks great to me.
Good Cooling and mostly silent (I run the fan at 100%)
My Corsair HX1000, Ultima-90 cooler and 9800GTX+ in SLI fits well.
Mostly Aluminium
Cons
No floppy slot - Need additional adapter.
Some parts not in aluminium
No thumbscrew on expansion card.
Only one SATA hot-swap included.
Summary
I upgraded my Lian-Li PC-60 to this case and I'm very happy.
Look is much better and my CPU and MCP temperature on my 780iFTW with E8400 went down by 8 Dec C!!!
I have 9800GTX+ in SLI and the top card temp went down by 3 Deg C. The bottom one went up by 1 Deg C, probably related to the proximity of the power supply.
Installation my 5 HD and Optical drive went very well.
There's only one SATA hot swap and a Molex is required (I had to add a modular cable to my P/S just for that).
If you have a big CPU cooler the top 180mm fan might interfere with it.
Cable managment is OK.
The missing floppy slot is the big miss for me, otherwise it exceeded my expectation.
