Default Silverstone Fortress FT02 Case Review Comment Thread

The mid tower case market is cluttered with products all vying for your attention but Silverstone's new Fortress FT02 dares to be different by incorporating a new "stack cool" design for component placement. This innovative layout can either spell disaster for this $200 ATX case or will put it in a league of its own.

Great Review LL!

Glad to see Silverstone fixed at least a few of the major problems that tickled people with the RV02. The new hard drive system is a big plus.

Love the look to :)

Its like trick photography. That first picture, on the first page makes it look like just "some" case. Get a closer look at the depth and WOW!

That made the review! Excellent review, excellent case!

Amazing review as always. The 90 degree turn is a really nice feature. There's just so many ways to have your motherboard nowadays. The normal vertical way, horizontal like in benches, servers and some Mountain Mods cases, and then we have the 90 degree turned vertical. Crazy.

(Just a note, small spelling mistake in the first sentence of the conclusion page.)

Sorry about that spelling error. Saw it just as it went live.
