Back in November we reviewed the SilverStone Raven RV02 and found it to be an amazing computer case. It finally was superior to the Temjin TJ10 that was a favorite for years, but now SilverStone has pushed the limits of their designs and innovation even further. We now have our hands on the SilverStone Fortress FT02, which does inherit some traits from the Raven chassis, but it is simply one amazing enclosure. The Fortress FT02 may cost more than $200 USD, but read on to learn more about this exceptionally designed ATX / SSI CEB chassis.

We received the Fortress FT02 from SilverStone for review and its packaging was similar to the many other cases we have reviewed from this manufacturer this year. Two large blocks of Styrofoam protected this case while it was resting in a very large box that was made of thick cardboard. A box resting outside of the case housed the user's manual, mounting hardware, and accessories. There are four models that make up the SilverStone Fortress FT02 product line; the models include the SST-FT02B, SST-FT02S, SST-FT02B-W, and SST-FT02S-W. The different models are for having a black or silver exterior and with our without a window. The model we received was the SST-FT02B-W, which is black and has a side panel acrylic window.
