Inside the Fortress SST-FT05B-W
After sliding the top to the back and lifting it away, we find a pair of plastic handles surrounding a large box of hardware. This is mostly open otherwise, as it is technically the rear of the chassis, only with a ninety degree twist.
Nearer to the front handle, inside of the top rail, you will find a release latch. This is for the right side of the chassis, but pressing the lump under and to the left of the R releases the lock and allows the side panel to lift straight up and off the frame.
Since there is a window in the left panel, it does not get any sound absorbing material. The right side that we are seeing here does in fact get a large section of material added to both keep the panel from rattling, and of course absorbing noises from inside the chassis.
Without the sides and the top in place, the chassis opens right up. Things appear to be very cramped at first glance, but once we get all of the gear installed later, you will see there is ample room for most builds.
Inside of the front of the chassis, we find it is completely lined with sound absorbing material, and is where all of the front I/O wiring is left to hang from the top of the chassis. Also, just off to the left, we see the slot-load optical bay drive if you have a need for an optical drive of whatever flavor.
Since we already had all of the wiring in view, we may as well cover them now as well. There is the power and reset leads to the left, the HD Audio, USB 3.0 and SATA power lead in the middle, leaving the long lead to connect for the HDD LED. Since it may have to be very visible, we do appreciate that everything is black and easily hidden in plain sight.
