    In white it looks pretty bad imo. Apart from that however it's an interesting concept. Might be flirting with the idea of having a SFF case as the main rig and something along these lines could just be it. Promising, let's see how it turns out.

    Woah! That is weird indeed. It could be a decent improvement from the sg03/sg04, but we'll have to wait and see.

    There's something about it which I'm loving, cant quite put my finger on it though. It does look a little bit like a mini fridge though from the front, dont you think? The ********* doesn't help it much hahaha.

    Would really be intrested in that in black, no hope of fitting a h50 though :(

    Wouldn't fancy doing a motherboard change in that one. I'd rather have a more sensible case and less desk space. Lian Li V351 is still my favourite mATX.

    I stumbled on these pictures a couple of days ago as well whilst looking for anything new on the tj11, silverstone do seem to be pushing the boat with their layouts as of late.

    I hope they do a black version.

    Edit: I don't consider this to be a fortress, more like a new sugo, SG08.

    I don't like the way Silverstone are taking the Fortress series. FT02 is almost perfect for an air cooled case, you would have thought they would just tweak it a little and provide better cable management and a little more height. Shame.

    Looks like a paper shredder imo. Maybe it'll just take some getting used to.

    I appreciate that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I happen to think that this case looks awesome. I love the fact that it's unique and that's what would be the major selling point for me.

    That aside... will any computer components actually fit into it?!?

    ^ It's for high performance matx, so yes a lot of stuff can fit. Seems like a nice improvement over all the sugo cases.

    I'm presuming that I'm allowed to post YouTube links here..? This is a good 'un, answered a lot of my questions anyway!

    Looking like a very attractive MATX case for a new-build. That said, I'm kind of a Silverstone Fanboy :rolleyes:

    Nice, thanks for posting that video. Hoping it's similarly priced to the sg04.
