Combining two of SilverStone's most distinctive computer chassis breakthroughs - the unibody construction of the Temjin TJ07, introduced in 2005, and the 90-degrees rotated motherboard mount of the RAVEN RV01 from 2008 - the Fortress FT02 advances both chassis construction and thermodynamics in a dynamic, streamlined design. With the Fortress FT02, SilverStone engineers have combined the rigidity of unibody construction with the unparalleled cooling layout of the RAVEN chassis, adding a hot-swappable hard drive cage and an acoustically padded interior for maximum versatility. The result is increased structural strength, increased storage capacity, and whisper-quiet operation. Available in black and silver colors, its elegant outer shell is perfectly accentuated by the U-shaped unibody aluminum frame that not only provides unique styling, but also functional purpose. The bottom gap from the frame to the main body actually serves as the main air intake area for its three massive 180mm fans, making it even suitable for use on carpeted surfaces. For professionals and enthusiasts looking to build a silent workstation or gaming machine with maximum performance, there is no better than the SilverStone Fortress FT02.

FT02 Feature list
Automotive-caliber 4.5mm Aluminum Unibody Frame Crafted from a solid extruded aluminum panel with automotive machinery, the Fortress FT02's main structure delivers more than twice the structural rigidity of average steel cases to practically eliminate vibration-induced noise. The form padded interior also absorbs noise for silent operation.
Revolutionary 90 Degree Motherboard Mounting Design With the revolutionary 90-degree motherboard mounting design, the Fortress FT02 delivers stack effect for natural heat convection and quick and convenient access top I/O ports. And it supports up to 11" wide ATX motherboard.
Superior Cooling Performance The 3 x 180mm bottom fans are preinstalled for unprecedented positive pressure and stack effect cooling. The large air cap created by bottom panel ensures maximum air circulation, making this chassis usable on carpeted surface. One 120mm top fan is also included to exhaust hot air out of your chassis. For flexibility, the Fortress FT02 supports advanced liquid cooling radiator mounting for extra cooling if necessary.
Hot-swappable Drive Cage Tool-less button design for 5 x 5.25" drive bays and hot-swappable drive cage support (one CP05 adapter included) ensures quick installation and upgrade of 5.25" and 3.5" drives to save your time. 2.5” HDD or SSD is also supported at unique location.
Extra Large Motherboard Tray Cutout The extra large motherboard tray cutout leaves available space for CPU cooler backplates allowing for easy installation or removal of CPU coolers, without having to remove the motherboard.
USB 3.0 Ready The top-mounted I/O panel offers easy access to two super speed USB 3.0 ports. Microphone and headphone jacks are also provided for easy audio entertaining.

Pros: This is a very well made case. I've only built a few systems so I don't have a whole lot to compare it to, but I do know when something is built well. There was a ton of room inside and on the backside for cable management. I love the motherboard layout with all the MB connections and expansion slots coming out the top.
Cons: One of the three intake fans on the bottom is running slower than the other two. I have to run it on the high setting to get 750 rpm out of it while the other two are on low for the same rpm. I do need to swap the connectors with another fan to see if it's the fan or the MB connector. I don't think I would consider this a super quiet case because all the air movement is out the top so you can hear it.
Other Thoughts: I am an Inspector in the Manufacturing Industry so I can say with some expertise that this is a well built case. Even if the slow fan is defective, I wouldn't knock off any eggs because it is virtually impossible to catch 100% of defects.
It's hard to believe this is a Mid-Tower size case because it is huge. Can't knock off any eggs though because the dimensions are given so do your research. You may end up with short cables from the PSU if it isn't designed for Full size Towers. I was able to reach everything with my mid size PSU but I had to be creative and use the bottom slot for my optical drive so the cable could be routed behind the MB and if I had to use the drive bays closest to the front, my cables might not reach.
I bought this case, purely because I was impressed with the design and build quality. I built the majority of the system with middle of the road components in regards to performance because I just don't need much, but I had to splurge on the case when I stumbled on it and I'm glad I did.
