Silverstone Fortress FT04 Review
Published: 3rd February 2014 | Source: Silverstone | Price: £174 |
The Aluminium top cover is easily removed after releasing two thumb bolts at the rear of the case. Doing so grants access to the interior of the separate roof section allowing for fitting of the PSU and 5.25" bay devices.
The 5.25" bays are covered by unvented plastic covers which can be effortlessly popped out and back in again. Fitting of devices up here will require you to use a good old fashioned screwdriver, so dust off that man card (apprentice level) and get stuck in.
The PSU mount area is just wide enough to take a PSU to the point that if the one you intend to use has any embossed areas or raised badges on the side they will scrape against the sides of the panels. Once in however the PSU has a comfortable seat atop two full length rubber strips.
Those who have been reading diligently through the review will know by now that the FT04 features a sight rarely seen these days outside of server systems. Yup boys and girls, it's got a removable motherboard tray, which once out grants unprecedented internal access from both sides. Ideal if you're fitting rads and reservoirs and need room to access otherwise hard to reach fittings.
So here it is in all it's numerically scaled glory, one removable motherboard tray.
