Now that we’ve got the spec sheets out of the way, let’s have a look at the case itself. First, the packaging—because sometimes you can judge a book by its cover.

Box Front
As with the FT-01, SilverStone has decorated the packaging with a mock-up of an underground bunker, in keeping with the Fortress name. Front and center, we see a picture of the case opened up, with all the relevant features highlighted. Simple, effective, and to the point.
Box Side
On the side, a little blurb on what inspired the design of this case, which you can see on the first page, under SilverStone’s Take. Below that, translations of the feature highlights into German, Spanish, French, Italian, Korean, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese are included, indicating that this is a case meant for the worldwide market.
Box Open
Opening it up, we see the case itself wrapped in a plastic bag and bookended by a pair of foam caps—standard fare, and plenty to keep the case safe in transit. For once the UPS guys didn’t play kickball with the box, so everything was in pristine condition.
Here we see the accessories included in the small cardboard box tucked into one of the styrofoam caps holding the case in place. Aside from the expected manual (a fairly thorough affair printed on high-quality paper) and bag-o-screws, we see several reusable cable ties, an adapter for hooking up three fans to a Molex plug, and a few odd bits of plastic. The one labeled SSD, as you might guess, is for mounting a single SSD drive to the back of the motherboard tray. The long, rectangular piece is one of a pair, used for mounting a water cooling radiator to the bottom of the case, in place of the rear two intake fans. The other odd little bit is actually a PSU holding bracket, used in tandem with a Velcro strap (not pictured, found floating around loose inside the case) to help hold the PSU in place in its unusual location.

One accessory notable by its absence is the hot-swap bracket for the 3.5″ hard drive cage, which would allow one to quickly mount and dismount drives simply by sliding the caddy into and out of the slot. While this is hardly a usual thing to include with a case, the fact that the packaging and manual go out of their way to mention it make the absence somewhat notable.

  1. Absolutely awesome case. It gets better the more you look into it. Plus Silverstone does a really excellent job on the fit and finish of their products. A+ for the engineering team over there.
