The SILVERSTONE FT04 delivers excellent cooling performance in a silence. With an uninterrupted airflow design and new HiFlow fan filter to improve flow rate by nearly 40% compared to its predecessor, the FT04 is capable of astonishing cooling performance despite having only two Air Penetrator AP182 adjustable fans. To contain unwanted noise, a foam-padded interior is retained from previous designs and new rear-angled front vents have been added to guide potential noise away from you.

Although small in volume, the FT04 can still accommodate up to 11 hard drives and has many nifty features—such as a CPU and graphics card supporter, a removable motherboard tray, and an externally accessible fan filter assembly. Wrapping around this technical powerhouse is a stunning aluminum front door and top panel finished to the same standard as SilverStone’s premium Temjin series cases. For those looking to upgrade to a chassis with Fortress series’ legendary performance in a smaller footprint or a more traditional layout, the FT04 is perfect.

Excellent Cooling Performance in Silence

4 out of 5 eggsA Great Idea; A Good Case.

Pros: Very good design. Essentially the big brother of the TJ08-E/PS07. Having the PSU like that means it and the cables coming out of it, as well as the ODDs, can be completely hidden. In addition, removing the drive cages makes it look VERY clean inside. Solid, solid thermals with minimal effort: only two huge intake fans that I have never needed to go above their minimum speed of 500 RPM. All in all, it's sexy, it performs well, it's well-built.

Cons: Unfortunately, this case has some head-scratching drawbacks. The aluminum front panel is GORGEOUS, but somehow does NOT match the aluminum top panel. They are off-color. Considering the whole point of having fancy aluminum is aesthetics, this seems a little stupid. Also, the door does not line up perfectly flush with the top when closed. Again -- expensive as hell aluminum, and THAT little detail got overlooked?

The dust cover at the top for the PSU is made out of plastic. It's not flimsy, though, and hilariously, the plastic is closer to the shade of the front panel than the rest of the top panel is. However, again, this guy is NOT flush. The dust cover doesn't curve as much as the top panel and so sticks up past it rather than sitting perfectly flush. I reiterate: expensive panel materials, amazing design, VERY expensive case...and this? It's not completely deal-breaking, but it makes no sense, and there is no excuse for this kind of thing from a company as well-regarded for solid construction as SilverStone, and from a case of this very premium price category.

Another minor gripe: the idea to have the fans be unrestricted by grilles is great, BUT it would have been nice for them to have been fastened from the INSIDE (as is the case with the PS07). that way, you could route the fan cables directly behind the SIDE of the fans and up into the space covered by the ODD area. This allowed for essentially perfect cable management in the PS07 -- but here, you can't do that because there is a plate of steel in the way, and the side of the fan is OUTSIDE the chassis rather than inside, so the ONLY way to route the cables is in front of the fans somehow. Not horrible looking, but so close to perfect it's painful.

Other Thoughts: Basically, this case is my new baby. My second build ever for myself, it houses an Asus 780 and a 4770K. It is an extremely efficient design. Pure positive pressure, amazingly quiet fans that really never need to spin any faster than 500 RPM, and only TWO of them. The fact that this case achieves the performance it does with just two fans is fantastic. Also, it's gorgeous, and after removing the drive cages it can look extremely clean inside.

BUT, the overall excellence in this case serves to highlight the rather stupid (for lack of a better word) drawbacks. There is simply no excuse for panels not aligning properly, colors mismatching, dust covers protruding from the sleek contours of the rest of the case. Those things don't keep this case from being my new baby, but they DO, unfortunately, keep it firmly planted in the four-star category, and keep it from really being as good as it should be. As I said many times before, at this kind of price, it really should not be acceptable to have these types of issues. But it is nevertheless one of the nicest cases on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case / SSI-EEB Compatible

Pros: *Plenty of room for my ASUS KGPE-D16.
*SSD (2.5" drive) mounts across bottom if you remove the wanna be hot swap bays.
*Removable motherboard tray, love this one.
*Cool, windy, and cool inside.

Cons: *Hot swap bays, really? They are nice for coasters on my desk.
*Had to remove the hdd cage to fit the SSI-EEB, but was expecting to do so anyways.

Other Thoughts: This case is great, cool inside and nicely painted flat black interior.

Tons of room!

Nicely built, although not as heavy duty as my Fractal Designs Define R4 Black Pearl.
