SilverStone Fortress FT04 Review

Interior (Cont.)

Below the PCI covers is a honeycomb mesh area which is marked out for attaching a 120mm cooling fan. This is an optional slot, SilverStone haven’t included one within FT04 since they rely upon positive airflow arrangement from the front intake cooling fans. This is the only additional fan placement within the chassis.

Optional 120mm fan spot at the back

As with the Raven 4, the FT04 also has the innovative CPU cooler support at the bottom of the case. This support helps to take strain off large coolers and is adjustable to suit varying products. The support is sat on a single storage cage – this cage can accommodate one 3.5” and two 2.5” drives and features a tool-free mechanism, 3.5” drives are simply slotted into the cage and a latch snaps over the front of the drive. To retrieve the drive the cord is pulled in a backwards fashion. 2.5” drives are installed via screws.

An innovative CPU cooler support with 3.5” HDD cage

Positioned towards the front of the case are two HDD cages, the upper cage can entertain up to five 3.5” drives and the lower HDD cage can accommodate a single 3.5” drive and two 2.5” drives and again just like the other storage cage we have a tool-free mechanism for installing the drive – furthermore this cage allows drives to be hot swapped, there are SATA connectors positioned at the back.

Plenty of storage options
