Product information: Fortress FT02 USB3.0 Case - Black (SST-FT02B USB 3.0)

Combining two of SilverStone's most distinctive computer chassis breakthroughs - the unibody construction of the Temjin TJ07, introduced in 2005, and the 90-degrees rotated motherboard mount of the RAVEN RV01 from 2008 - the Fortress FT02 advances both chassis construction and thermodynamics in a dynamic, streamlined design. With the Fortress FT02, SilverStone engineers have combined the rigidity of unibody construction with the unparalleled cooling layout of the RAVEN chassis, adding a hot-swappable hard drive cage and an acoustically padded interior for maximum versatility. The result is increased structural strength, increased storage capacity, and whisper-quiet operation. Available in black and silver colors, its elegant outer shell is perfectly accentuated by the U-shaped unibody aluminum frame that not only provides unique styling, but also functional purpose. The bottom gap from the frame to the main body actually serves as the main air intake area for its three massive 180mm fans, making it even suitable for use on carpeted surfaces. For professionals and enthusiasts looking to build a silent workstation or gaming machine with maximum performance, there is no better than the SilverStone Fortress FT02.

Positive air pressure case

I like:
* how quiet the PC can be after playing around the fan speed/cooling
* How heavy it is - almost an anti-theft measure ;)
* air flow and rate
* Supports both blower or non-blower type graphics card in this case - what matters is the fan speed and make sure there are is 5cm gape either side of case so the air in take works (I have a GTX 670 Windforce cooler that blows hot air around the case - the 3 fans at the bottom take care of getting rid of the heat)

I dislike:
* There should be more room for cables behind the motherboard - there's room, but its a hassle sometimes
* lack of fan control knob for fine tuning speed/sound
* one of the plastic locks of the 'hood' to cover the top of the PC broke off, but it hasn't caused any problems, no rattling and once its on you cant tell
* lack of 'hot swap' SATA slots - case comes with 1 and more can be bought, but it should be all 5 as standard

notes:
I completely removed the exhaust fan on the top of mine, its not needed (did I mention the 3 massive fans) and is less noisy without it
I can't see me needing another case for a long time, had it for 3 years so far and still loving it.

Still the ultimate air cooling case?

Firstly, this is a large case. I mean, it's really HUGE, and solidly built. It uses Silverstone's 90 degree rotated design from the Raven series (but without the garish looks of course!). drawing air in underneath the case and exhausting it directly out of the top. The fact that hot air rises also helps you here.

It uses three really very effective 180mm intake fans (with two speed options) and only a single 120mm exhaust fan and this creates good positive pressure that helps cooling but also helps keep dust out of the case giving you a longer term cooling benefit. All intakes have decent mesh dust filters as well. I've been running this case for almost a year now and I just gave it a first internal dusting today...almost nothing to do!

I run an i7 4770K (OC'd to 4.5GHz), with 3 HDDs, 1 SSD & a GTX780Ti (reference model, the blower coolers work best in this case), and I rarely see internal temps above 30 degrees. The GPU doesn't EVER exceed 75 degrees, and the CPU hasn't topped 70 degrees (except in AIDA stress testing).

I've given this case 5 stars, and that despite it's relatively high price. It really is a fantastic piece of kit.
