SilverStone Fortress FT03

Up to this point the SilverStone Sugo series has been a personal favorite when it comes to micro-ATX enclosures, but at the same time I did not think SilverStone would be able to push their innovations in the SFF area much further. Fortunately, they have. The SilverStone Fortress FT03 is an incredibly well designed chassis and is certainly a unique creation for them or any vendor. It is certainly capable of housing full-length graphics cards, multiple disk drives, and to cool all of the components while being very quiet. If the design interests you, the FT03 can be found for approximately $170 USD at Amazon. The only issues that have come up with this chassis is that the magnetic fan filter on the bottom of the chassis can fall-off rather easily and the power supply cable at the bottom of the chassis can be a nuisance to deal with if routinely moving the case or otherwise needing to disconnect the power.
