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...

Today were going to be looking at the FT01 chassis which is a return to a more traditional design implementation â€“ simple yet elegant. This mid-tower chassis incorporates design cues from the immensely popular TJ07 chassis and is home...

Back in 2006, SilverStone Technology Co. released the world’s first uni-body chassis with their award winning Temjin TJ07. The TJ-07 was known for unique look which was accomplished by using one single piece of aluminum bent into a U-shape that...

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...
