Video Review: The SilverStone FT01 Case is a very well crafted mid-tower case. There's two large 180mm fans and one 120mm fan which provide positive air pressure. The use of dust filter along with this positive air pressure eliminates dust and...

Overall then, the Fortress is a really impressive case. When it comes to the outlooks, it nicely follows the well proven lines of the TJ07. I cant imagine anyone not liking the thick aluminum outer shell with its lines. Surely it may look plain if...

SilverStone has taken the idea of a "clean room" such as used in the manufacture of computer chips to the case level first with the Temjin TJ07 and now with the Fortress FT01. The case kept the computer running cool, with positive air pressure driving...

How much Silverstones touted uni-body construction and positive pressure cooling affected the cases performance is difficult to assess. Regardless, the Fortress is substantially better than their last uni-body effort. Dampened panels, soft(er)...

Overall, this case was a joy to work with, and one of the best-looking cases I’ve worked with to date. The brushed aluminum looks nice, without the fingerprint issues that a smooth-polished finish would have. The dampening foam quiets a lot of the...

When I first saw the picture on the box of this chassis, I thought to myself, "Great, another Antec 900 look-a-like." This assumption couldnt have been further from the truth. In fact, the Silverstone FT01B-W is much more than that, and has many...

As I stated at the foreword of the review that a PC case is a personal item, but there is one thing that we all have in common and that is we want quite cooling. I was ready for a more noise friendly PC on my desktop and I was rather pleased on how...

The FT01 Fortress from SilverStone was an awesome case in terms of silence, great looks, and good cooling. The add-on modules round out the case, and help it stand out beyond the competition. I personally suggest having a hot swappable CP05 module...

The SilverStone Fortress FT01 doesnt outdo the Temjin TJ10 if youre after an extended ATX enclosure, need a surplus of room, or require dedicated cooling for your graphics card(s), but if youre just looking for one hell of a well-designed and...

The SilverStone FT01is in some ways, a carefully tuned product; its airflow, for instance. In other aspects its a blank canvas for serious builders. Theres no denying its good looks, particularly the version I reviewed, with the large, clear side...
