Product information: SST-FT05B Fortress Tower ATX - Black

The Fortress FT05 represent SilverStone’s continued dedication in improving and reinventing computer chassis design. Similar to the RAVEN RV05, it no longer has any 5.25” drive bay and utilizes SilverStone’s fame 90 degree rotated design. Previous full ATX SilverStone chassis with 90 degree layout often had to compromise on space efficiency due to fixed length of the motherboard in rotated orientation. So the elimination of 5.25” bays solves this issue naturally and enables FT05 to be not only more balanced in proportion but stunning in its design thanks to its thick wrap-around aluminum exterior.

With majority of wasted space eliminated, the FT05 is better optimized for components that affect performance the most such as CPU and GPUs. The result is an expertly-engineered ATX chassis that is just as capable in terms of compute power and heat dissipation as the first RAVEN chassis, the RV01, but in half the size. Equipped with latest revision Air Penetrator fans that include three speed switches and modern touches such as externally removable filters and tool-less panels, the FT05 has everything that PC enthusiasts could wish for in a compact, high performance computer chassis that is not only cool and quiet, but also easy to build and maintain. For those not wanting to constantly step up in chassis size to obtain top-level performance, the Fortress FT05 is perhaps the best and most beautiful solution.

Sleek, compact case

I bought this case as I wanted a nice looking, fairly compact, quiet case.

The 90 degree rotated design means that heat generated will naturally move upwards towards the vents in this case, and the fans included in the case provide a positive pressure to ensure that heat doesn't linger. The included fans are quite quiet and can be controlled either by the built in switches (in the hidden front IO port recess) or by your motherboard (note that they are DC not PWN fans). The bottom of the case is solid, with a generous fan intake gap which should mean that those of you on carpet won't be sucking in all that carpet dust.

The lack of front panel bays for optical drives is representative of the way that PCs are going, and putting in a slot loading drive gives you something functional as well as sleek looking/seamless.

With it being a slightly more compact case, you've got to make sure everything fits before you buy (a noteable restriction being PSU length of 160mm if you want to keep the HD bay), but once you've got everything in it will fit nicely in most places (not quite as deep as mosy full ATX cases).

Now that I've got everything in (Corsair AX860i, Promilatech Genesis Cooler and two ASUS 980 Strix's), it running quiet, looks great. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a professional looking case and is interested in keeping everything quiet.
