Inside the Fortress SST-FT05B-W Continued
The motherboard tray is a two-part deal, with the ODD tray hanging between them. To the right, there is access for CPU coolers, and even a small hole for the 8-pin lead. The left offers some management options for smaller motherboards, but for ATX, and SSI-CEB you are left using the indent at the left side of the motherboard tray.
On the left side of the floor, there is this two bay rack for 3.5" drives. This rack is screwed into the motherboard tray and chassis frame, can be removed entirely, or just removed to make drive installation and wiring around it a bit easier.
With the drive cage out of the way, we can see fully this pair of AP 180mm fans to send air through the chassis. The two pin clips at the back edge is for the fan controller switch leads, and for power, these offer really long 3-pin leads.
Where the venting for the PSU at the back of the chassis stops, we see that SilverStone filled the blank section of the panel with more of that absorbent material. Also, don't worry about dust for the PSU, SilverStone has that covered, and we will show the solution in the hardware section.
Looking out the top of the chassis, we find the exhaust fan location is empty and ready to be filled by a fan or AIO of your choosing. The screws to the expansions slots are actually above the rest of the panel, and offer an anti-tamper cover to slow down a would-be thief. That leaves the hole to the left to mount the PSU hanging from the top.
While it may not look like much behind the motherboard tray, there is a decent offset to allow for wiring to cross from left to right and connect. Also, in the larger section of the motherboard tray, we find that we can install a pair of 2.5" drives here and not use the HDD cage if we don't wish to.
