The SilverStone Fortress FT01 is a new uni-body all-aluminum case redesigned from the highly popular Temjin TJ07. The new design is smaller, and aimed for the high-end Mid ATX market, with room for even large video cards – readily fitting 10.5” cards, and can accommodate 12” workstation cards with part of the hard drive rack being removed. Lined with sound-dampening foam, and cooled with large quiet fans - this case is great for the silence enthusiasts. The Fortress tested today is the windowed version.
The case is packed inside a very glossy, beautiful box filled with details and features of the case, with pictures of the case at various angles are posed around – giving a good representation of what to expect inside. The box is held together with copper staples and tape, and received minor scrapes during shipping.
The case is well protected inside, being spaced far away from the sides of the shipping box with foam, and protected from scratches and dust with a plastic bag.
We shall see how well this case stands up to its name!
