SilverStone Create A New Fortress, Specifically For ITX Systems

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅18.05.2015 18:31:57

In early 2014, a revolutionary slim form factor case called the RVZ01 was created by SilverStone’s RAVEN team that exceeded and redefined what a slim HTPC or console-styled PC case could do. As a follow up, SilverStone created another new line called the Fortress Z to cater to enthusiasts with affinity for all metal design in slim form factor cases, thus the FTZ01 was born.

Similar to RVZ01, the FTZ01 utilizes a PCI-E riser and custom designed fans to accommodate the biggest consumer graphics card on the market with superb air cooling performance and the ability to support liquid cooling*. Designed for use in either vertical or horizontal orientation, it can be placed comfortably in any space-constrained environment that requires a powerful PC. For those looking to build a premium, all-metal slim form factor PC, there is no better choice than the FTZ01.

Special Features:

- Classic exterior built from aluminum unibody frame
- Supports graphics card up to 13 inches
- Mini-ITX motherboard & SFX PSU compatible
- Maximum performance in slim form factor with support for liquid cooling*
- Positive air pressure design for excellent cooling/quietness and dust-prevention
- Fits in nearly any environment with horizontal or vertical orientation
