SilverStone Fortress FT05 Review


Those of you who know your Silverstone lineage will know that as a rule, for every Raven, or RV case there's a corresponding Fortress or FT case.  Most usually based on the same chassis, but perhaps with the odd refinement here and there.  It was no surprise to us then on opening up the FT05 that it bore more than a passing resemblance to the RV05 we looked at back in  what was only July of this year.  The RV05 priced at just £82 impressed us immensely, especially when considering the price, with our closing remarks in the review being that we couldn't wait to see the FT05.  We didn't have to wait long though as it's only been a few short months  for us to wait until the Fortress version arrived, with the review sample we have being the black windowless version we can only best describe it as a black monolith of a case.  Silver versions are available as are windowed side panel versions so in all there's four variants to choose from.  At £136 though it's not cheap, so let's hope it measures up.

Actually really like this case. If the dimensions I checked are correct, you can fit that Nofan CR-80 in there and make a completely silent system with one of those passive Seasonic PSUs and all SSDs.

The open-ness of the the top should allow for decent heat dissipationQuote

CR80EH should fit just fine.Quote
