For the past sixteen months it's been difficult for us to find an ATX computer enclosure that beats the SilverStone Temjin TJ10 in terms of its build quality, design, and functionality, but SilverStone may have finally set a new precedent for desktop enclosures with the introduction of the Fortress FT01. This ATX chassis consists of a uni-body frame with origins that can be traced back to the Temjin TJ07, but with better cooling performance, dual 180mm fans, and a number of new features. It's with great pride that today we review the SilverStone Fortress FT01.


- Positive air pressure design optimizes cooling performance
- Uni-body frame construction from the flagship Temjin TJ07
- Artful, understated design with excellent ergonomics
- Dual 180mm silent fans included for outstanding cooling and quietness
- Minimal use of rivets for maximum serviceability
- Highly flexible storage options with hot-swappable SATA adapter
- ATX, Micro ATX enclosure


The SilverStone Fortress FT01 arrived in a bulky cardboard box and the case was protected by large Styrofoam molds on each end of the chassis, which is similar to the packaging we have found on other SilverStone products. SilverStone offers the Fortress FT01 in the following models: SST-FT01B, SST-FT01S, SST-FT01B-W, and SST-FT01S-W. The -W postfix denotes a side-panel acrylic window, the FT01B is for the model with a black exterior, and FT01S is silver. In this review we have our hands on the SilverStone SST-FT01B-W.
