SILVERSTONE Fortress Series FT03T Aluminum / Steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case, Titanium Color
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Built my gaming rig in this case:
asus maximus gene v
16gb gskill 2133 ram
Silverstone Heligon cooler
intel 120gb ssd
evga 680ftw 2gb(soon to be sli)
silverstone 850 gold power sply.
1tb western dig caviar black(for hot swap port)
I managed to squeeze all of this in this case and there is still room for another 680!!
Have two pwm 80mm fans at bottom and a120 at top.Airflow in the case is great and temps stay reasonable even under stress.
Cable management is a bit tricky but,if you take your time it 's not that bad.
Titanium color looks nice.
Looks like the little robot dudes from the reboot series

Cons: headphone-usb3 header is kind of cheap.Usb is loose and headphone jack pops back out when you plug it in(too tight).
still going to give it 5 eggs though.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH

Pros: Bought this for a asus maximus v gene build and could not be happier with the performance.Set up was a snap in the bios and had it running at 2133oc with a simple xmp profile setup.

Cons: none.

SilverStone Heligon HE01 CPU Cooler with 140mm fan for Intel socket LGA 775 / 1155 / 1156 / 1366 / 2011, AMD socket  AM2 / AM3 / FM1 / FM2. Copper base heatpipe and Aluminum fins

Pros: replaced a h-80 cooler which made the dreaded grinding noise.
fairly easy to install and keeps the temps in the same range as the h-80.Best thing is it's quiet even under load.
Idle temps on a overclocked 3570k are 28c to 31c. Under prime95 blend 69c to 73c(one hour run)
you don't have to worry about tall ram heatsinks as the cooler does not interfere with it.
fits in my matx case(silverstone fortress) on a maximus v gene mobo.

Cons: a little expensive.

Other Thoughts: the fan has two settings quiet and preformance.the pro setting can be a little loud but,not bad.In quiet you can barely hear it and the temps are good.(temps above are in quiet mode)
