We all know that if you want the best of the best of what SilverStone has to offer, there are only two real choices for gamers: the Temjin series, and the Fortress series. While I have seen around three variations within the Temjin series, for the Fortress series, it is time to start to even that case count. The last and only chassis from the Fortress series that we looked at was the FT03 Mini, and let me tell you, what we are about to see today has nothing to do with that SFF chassis that we saw then.
This time things have been super-sized and enlarged back into the full-tower lineup, as well as seeing the latest and greatest of what the engineers at SilverStone are able to pack into this design. Things to look out for are the removable motherboard tray, CPU and video card support systems, modularity of the drive bays, ducted airflow to the video cards, and a layout that is unlike anything any other manufacturer on the market is currently offering.
Others advantages lead us to a pair of AP180 fans placed in the front that will supply a mini hurricane worth of air flow, modularity in the fan mounting there, and a styling unlike previous Fortress releases, while still keeping within the lines of its heritage.
The Fortress FT04 comes in four variations, in silver or black, and then again in both versions with or without a window in the right side panel. As you can tell already, there is a lot that we are going to be taking in, and hopefully we will see if SilverStone is designing for success with modularity enough to contend with cases that have been to the labs lately, which seem to really be pushing the envelope of what a chassis in 2014 should bring to its owners.
I personally liked the concept I saw over a year ago at CES, but with the real deal in our hands, it is time to get busy and find out what this full-tower chassis has to offer.
