Product Overview 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. Features • Aluminum wrap-around exterior with classic SilverStone Fortress styling
• Revolutionary 90 degree motherboard mounting from RAVEN RV01

Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling
Date Issued: 19th Jun 2008

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great case for cool running :) No complaints with this case, the vertical design is great and has helped me build a really quiet X99 system. The only things to be aware of are: * it's obviously a bit smaller in size without those 5.25" drive bays, which is what I wanted, but the build is pretty tight. My PSU only just fits (Seasonic Platinum 760W at 160mm in length) above the HDD cage, so a lot of the cables are bent pretty sharp - I wish I had put the modular power cables in first! The Noctua D15 cooler I'm using JUST fits (like, with nothing to spare), but I had to install numerous cables onto the mobo first because there otherwise wouldn't have been room for access. Just take your time, plan things out and you'll be grand :) * I didn't find it obvious at all how to screw my slot loading optical drive into the plastic tray fitting - the holes didn't seem to line up. So I ended up drilling myself a hole to hold it in place - I later spotted an appropriate hole (can't remember where at this point - maybe it was on the underside so I missed it), so persevere here before butchering it :) * I managed to squeeze 4 SSDs into the HDD cage by buying a couple of 3.5" to 2x2.5" cage adapters - worth doing given that it only has 2 dedicated 2.5" drive bays. * The vertical airflow design might be great for heat dissipation, but there's something about it which gives me the fear - the thought of a spilled drink falling into the chassis brings me out in a cold sweat. I've got this computer in a well ventilated cupboard, so no worries, but if you have your machine sitting out, just think about the environment the case will be used in (i.e. I don't think this is a kid or pet friendly design). 11 October 2015
