Pros: Works fine with both 32- and 64-bit Vista Ultimate. Easy availability of new drivers from AMD.

Cons: Manufacturer could have provided separate backplane mounts for low-profile installation (this was not a problem for me though).

Other Thoughts: Installed card in Dell Vostro 220. No issues.

2 out of 5 eggs Cool, but not enough for pricepoint 02/23/2009

This review is from: SilverStone Fortress Series FT01-B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Uni-body Computer Case

Pros: Clean lines, light weight, external ports are nicely positioned for on-floor / under-desk placement. Airflow seems well designed.

Cons: Almost impossible to remove roof filter. Definitely impossible to remove PSU filter without dismounting PSU. Drive rails are made from cheap plastic and did not properly clip into position on the case I received. Clips that hold doors in place must be _carefully_ reseated when door is remounted, otherwise door may fall off. As stated in other reviews, the buttons on the 5.25 bays are cheap and gimmicky.

Other Thoughts: For all that Silverstone does right with this case, they do a lot wrong too. For the high price point of this case, I didn't expect the cons that I've listed (except the 5.25 bay buttons, which alone would have been acceptable).

Silverstone should simply do away with the filter panels, since the outer grills should be enough to catch most pet hair and dust.

Honestly, if drive rails weren't so poor I would consider overlooking the other issues.
