Silverstone cases are often praised by enthusiasts and HTPC builders alike, and with good reason. Last time we checked one out it was the Fortress FT03, the direct predecessor of the case we are reviewing today. The FT03 was unlike anything we had seen before, receiving TechSpot's Outstanding award as it was able to accommodate full length graphics cards and offered superior cooling performance on a small footprint.
Two years later, the much anticipated Fortress FT04 has made it to market. Upon first glance this latest version looks a lot like the FT01 that was released back in 2008. The FT04 shares similar dimensions to the FT01, with a slight increase in size that we assume simply means it can fit drives and longer graphics cards more comfortably.
